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!

Historical minifigs of LEGO Collection Series 12

July 27, 2014

It was revealed the first official pictures lining up the new minifigs of series 12.
I’m glad to find a few more historical characters, this time the collection seems to include a Mongol and female Greek warrior. It  also seems to include a new Musketeer and a old western gold miner :D

In overall the new collection is very attractive and it’s probably related with the new Lego Minifigures online game.

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.

02

“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.”

Battle for Fort St. Frederic

September 13, 2013

Today’s highlight goes to this battle between the British and French forces, represented by Mattius Xavier in this MOC. The buildings techniques are simple, but the photo perspective and placement of figures gave life and action to the scene.

Fort Saint-Frédéric was a French fort built on Lake Champlain to secure the region against British colonization and control the lake. It was located in modern New York State across the lake from modern Vermont at the town of Crown Point, New York.

Coauthor Sérgio Antunes

May 18, 2013

It’s with great pleasure and satisfaction that I come to announce that History Bricks has a new author. Sérgio Antunes agreed to participate, and I have no doubt that his skills as an historian and his past as AFOL will be of great value in the growth and promotion of the blog.

The idea came up during a conversation while commenting his work in PLUG’s event Brincka 2013 at Porto Salvo. He participated with an incredible Napoleonic Army.

Normandy 1944

May 15, 2013

I came across this wonderful layout of a world war II battle in Normandy, made by Lugpol members Pit Mrutek Rasch Glaz Pimpur dmac Borys Misiek Axel Nexus 7 Matix Szarik Kris Kelvin and many other water helpers.

The amount of detail is incredibly vast that is difficult to enumerate  and where to start. I will mention just a few details that caught my attention: the notion of movement in the water, the explosions, the detail of the studless vehicles and mainly the many scenes with minifigs that give life to this scenario.
