Lothan castle and the awesome waves

December 15, 2013 by

I was looking at some of the Classic Castle Contest entries and found this Lothan castle built by Adam Hollings. I really enjoyed the castle architecture but the main reason I’ve decided to make a post about it was those amazing waves.

The water effect is one of the best I ever seen in LEGO. The color gradient is very well balanced and wave form is nearly perfect! Great job!

Ancient Roman home

I was perusing Lego Cuusoo today, when an under-supported effort caught my eye. I love the Classical period and rejoice when I find Lego creations that celebrate or – better yet – teach about it.

This design is part of a Lego Cuusoo effort is called ‘Lego Modular Imperium Romanum‘ by bigboy99899. I, for one, would love to see kits like the one below at my local Lego store.

 

 

Crow’s Nest

November 20, 2013 by

Crow’s Nest is Legonardo Davidy submission to the “CCC XI Custom Faction” category of Classic Castle Contest XI. The wacky structure and the snow detail is really great. The yellow banners give that final touch and make it just perfect :)

The sword in the stone

November 18, 2013 by

The sword in the stone” was one of my favorite Disney’s movies when I was a child (it still is). Derfel Cadarn build this incredible scene from the movie, with the Merlin’s tower (with Merlin and Archimedes at the window), Kay’s training and little Arthur.

The overall wall-work is amazing but I’ll highlight how he managed to build the round tower.

LEGO Age of Empires II on Cuusoo

November 7, 2013 by

the Artizan published two new MOCs related with the world of the Age of Empires II. They follow the same construction techniques, simple but effective :D

This time I would to highlight his project on LEGO Cuusoo for a line of products that would recreate the world of the Age of Empires II. As a big fan of the RTS game this would be an awesome idea (but awful for the wallet). Don’t forget to support his project - http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/52276 - or maybe share it on twitter and facebook.

Last but not least, her’s the new pictures of his two MOCs.

LEGO Age of Empires II

November 1, 2013 by

Age of Empires II was one of my favorite RTS games at the time. The music, the gameplay, the graphics, everything on the game was nearly perfect for a good couple of hours of entertainment. Probably these were the same reasons that took the Artizan to recreate some of the buildings in (virtual) LEGO.

I really enjoyed these findings on the Flickr gallery, not because of some elaborated construction technique or the incredible details, but for their simplicity and how quickly recognizable they are :)

English Warship “Revenge”

October 25, 2013 by

maydayartist presented today at Eurobricks Pirate Board this outstanding piece of art! The construction is so smooth and with an incredible amount of details that I can’t stop going back and forward between the pictures here.

The author took some time with his workmate (a wooden ship modeller) to choose the right ship. The selected ship was an English warship named “Revenge” from 1577 that was built at minifigscale in the proportion of 1:50.

Conwy Castle

soccerkid6‘s little brother has 11 years old and is the author of this gorgeous castle! I was surprised, specially after admiring the wall-work and the details inside the castle.

Lake Worth Gold Mine

October 19, 2013 by

Fedin posted this beautiful minifigure scale model of the Gold Mine on the HistoryBricks flickr’s group. The rockwork is amazing but the minifgures posing is my favorite part of this diorama. We can find the workers, bandits, the old miner and  the guy washing the dirt/gold on the lakeshore.

By coincidence, today I’m recovering my brother’s old set 6761-1: Bandit’s Secret Hide-Out :D
