New web design

Hi history readers!

Today I finally refreshed the blog design for something modern, simple and more related with the blog’s content. What do you think of the new color scheme? And the new header that displays by chronological order the historical minifigs published by LEGO Minifig Collection Series?

Stay tuned for more news :D

Pictorial Map of Europe

Great work by Matt Base representing Europe’s countries with some of the most iconic monuments. The micro scale work is amazing. Thumbs up also for the map itself!

Back from vacations

Finally I was able to take two weeks vacation. Unfortunately they will end today but on the other side I found my Brickforge’s package on the mailbox when I got home.
Stay tuned for the incoming review of some of the Brickforge’s Wave 1 of RIGGED WWII items :D

Does anyone struggle with MOCs?

Interesting discussion going on Eurobricks about how to let the creativity flow and start building MOCs.
I struggle myself sometimes to translate into bricks the ideas I have. Most of the times, I’ll use pictures of real buildings (usually historical monuments) as inspiration for my constructions.
How about you?

Here’s the link of the thread: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=99045#entry1971902

Granovian Seaport

Granovian Seaport it’s a nice building MOC built by Sir Edwyn. Loved the medieval architecture of the building and the fine details on the walls.

Treasure Island

Incredible finding from TBB of this street inspired on the Treasure Island romance and built by Matthew Hurt. Every house has its peculiarities and fine details, with close historical allusions with pirates and the age of discovery.
