My brother is also a big LEGO enthusiast, but he doesn’t want a profile of his own, so I’ll let him borrow mine for this one.
I am a fan of the Command & Conquer in its various incarnations. I got into the series late, as the first time I really got into the series was with the First Decade pack (and CnC 3), but even with their age it was apparent to me that these were quality games. Since I’m also a fan of LEGO, it seemed like a good idea to build something from the games, and I picked the Tiberium series for various reasons.
One of the classics of the Brotherhood of Nod’s arsenal is the Recon bike/Attack bike/Attack cycle, so it was obvious that had to be built:
I chose the version from Tiberium Wars, as that was what I had the best parts for:
They are pretty simple, and the driver is just made from standard parts.
Another classic Nod vehicle is the buggy:
This version is from CnC Renegade (kind of and oddball in the series):
I mostly chose this version because I thought it looked neat. There is room for a driver in it, barely.
My next creation is the stealth tank:
Long considered the epitome of Nod technology, this version is from Tiberian Sun:
This was easier to build than any other version of the tank as it has wheels, not threads. The “arms” are movable normally, but kinda floppy, so it has some problems with collapsing, unless one sticks a couple of plates under them.
The next vehicle is not a classic however:
The Scorpion tank from Tiberium Wars:
It has an interesting shape to say the least, which also made it an interesting build. I also outfitted it with one of the available upgrades, the laser capacitator:
But I haven’t built the dozer blade yet.
Next up is lots of infantry:
The standard infantry from Tiberian Sun and their Rocket trooper counterparts, all wearing Nod combat armor:
They are rather useful, as the also show up in Kane’s Wrath.
These hoodlums are from Tiberium Wars, and serves as standard infantry and rocket troopers respectively:
Next is the infantry from Renegade:
Two Nod soldiers, an officer and a flamethrower trooper.
Additionally from Renegade:
Here we have a Black Hand heavy trooper, two Black Hand snipers, General Gideon Raveshaw (or Peewee as Havoc calls him) and Carlos Mendoza:
Now that we are talking about Renegade:
Here we have Nick “Havoc” Parker, commando and the main character of CnC Renegade:
Now we enter the Nod high command:
This is Seth, From god, to Kane, to Seth. Your very first commanding officer from Tiberian Dawn:
Sadly for Seth, power shifts quickly in the Brotherhood. I don’t think I need to introduce him, but this is Kane, supreme leader of Nod, and the Messiah.
And now for one final unit of the two armed and bipedal variety:
The Nod Avatar Warmech:
It has quite the number of articulated joints, which makes it pretty movable, but a little difficult to stand up.
Any suggestions for improvement are appreciated.
