Fantastic Lego creations abounded at BrickCon 2013 in Seattle, WA. Amongst the mini-fig scale recreations of Hogwart’s Castle and Rivendell, between the micro scale Battle of Hoth and the homage to Red. vs. blue, an attending history fan could find much to delight.
I’ll start by one of the collaborative builds produced by BattleLUG, titled “Battle through the Ages.” The sequence of displays follows the evolution of warfare from ancient history to the modern period. Here are a couple segments of the display.
The Pelopsonnesian War
Several different battles from World War II were displayed, all collaboratively created between several AFOL and TFOL builders. Behold Operation Brickarossa :
The Allied advance through Normandy. Note the hedge rows!
In the next post, we’ll review some of the other, non-warfare related history entries at BrickCon.
