Battle of Rorke’s Drift, Jan 22, 1879

August 9, 2014

Gary built this realistic representation of the famous battle from the Zulu War of 1879.
I remember of an old movie I saw with my grandfather, many years ago, about this war. The picture I have in my mind of the battle between the Zulu and British soldiers is precisely the same as the one Gary published on Eurobricks. Quite impressive!
Regarding the building techniques I would like to highlight the wall texture, the thatched roof and the ground.

Davis presented today at Eurobricks this little masterpiece.
Take a look at the wonderful techniques it applied to create the mountains, the doors and specially the roofs using technic axes. Well done!

The Great War – 100th aniversary

July 18, 2014

Ciamosław Ciamek built a wonderful MOC with 3 parts celebrating the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

“I: ‘Enthusiasm’ (Paris 1914)
Mobilization in France. The crowd greets soldiers marching, and the recruitment point is popular.”
11

“II: ‘Awe’ (Passchendaele 1917)
Positional War. The so-called third Battle of Ypres, fought in a sea of mud, in which drowned tens of thousands of soldiers.”
37

“III: ‘Glory’ (Vaux-sur-Somme 1918)
April 21, 1918 Manfred von Richthofen – ‘Red Baron’ – was shot down on the French territory. Probably by the Australian machine gunner.”

BrickCon 2013 Review

October 7, 2013

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

The Crusades

Several different battles from World War II were displayed, all collaboratively created between several AFOL and TFOL builders. Behold Operation Brickarossa :

Brickinawa:

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.
