Ancient Roman home

December 2, 2013

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.

Hadrian’s wall was a defensive fortification in Roman Britain to defend agains Scottish barbarians. Begun in AD 122, during the rule of emperor Hadrian, it was the first of two fortifications built across Great Britain.

LukeClarenceVan is the author of this marvelous construction where he shows a minor skirmish where a force of Scotsmen besiege the a gate with their most powerful war machine – the caber toss.

Sacking of Colchester by Boudica

October 16, 2012

James Pegrum and Malravion assembled together several MOCs, including the Roman Colchester Theater, bringing to life this awesome roman layout describing an assault of enemy troops into the city.

Collectible Minifigures Series 6 and 7

October 15, 2011

Toys N bricks had publish the first official pictures from the upcoming series of Collectible Mifigures. Like previous collections, these new series presents new historical figures that will delight many LEGO fans.

The 6th series presents a roman warrior. Personally I’ve been waiting for ages for the LEGO roman empire. This figure and the new rounded bricks of the Atlantis sets will make a beautiful  combination :-)

This collection also presents a barbarian warrior, which is nice for the battles against the roman army, and a cowboy that will fit perfectly in any western MOC.

 

 

The 7th series presents a Viking warrior (girl?), a cool hippie that will fit nicely 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van and, my favorite, the Aztec warrior (or at least, what I think that it is). The mermaid man will also make a cool Neptune roman god of the sea.

War has come!

Valentin (aka Skalldyr) submit this great representation of the Roman invasions for the Mini Castle Contest at Classic Castle. The Roman soldiers are amazing! I loved the techniques he applied to build the spears and the Centurion’s helmet. Before ending the post, one last mention to the cool buildings including the temple’s fire.

31 Incredible Examples of Lego Architecture

February 28, 2010

A friend of mine sent me the link to this nice post in the WebUrbanist that collects 31 examples of Lego Architecture. Since most of them are landmarks that belong to our human history, I though that HistoryBricks’ readers would  appreciate it :)

Roman chariot (WIP) – Historybricks exclusive

February 21, 2010

Today, I present the first HistoryBricks exclusive. I’ve built in Bricksmith a small “study” of a Roman chariot pulled by two horses. It’s a Work In Progress (WIP) and stills missing some parts that were hard to build using the software (chains and ropes) but I think it’s enough to get the idea of the final MOC.

My next step is a visit to Bricklink to order the parts needed :)

War Chariot

January 24, 2010

Qworg built a nice two horse war chariot! He does not specify who’s ridding it but I will guess that is a roman chariot. The horses are really nice but he give credits to Zgrredek for the idea.

Microscale Colosseum

December 26, 2009

I found this creation on The Brothers Brick blog and is a microscale version of the Roman Colosseum made by rack911. The MOC is full illuminated with small lights which make a nice glow effect on the dark.

See the flickr gallery for more pictures.
