Garmadon

[G:A15, U vs DK] To War!

Recommended Posts

The mighty Ulandian army advances into the center of Desert King territory. Although they have quickly constructed an important coastal stronghold, the mummified - and other - followers of the false Desert King stand no chance against the Ulandian host!

A very fun experiment with mirrors! Although I would certainly like to use a mirror with a build again I don't think I'll try two again for a while! :laugh:Here's a picture of the setup I used, and the build is actually a total of 6x20 studs.

Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome!

And yes, there should be another Ulandian guerrilla to help mine out pretty soon!

Whoa! I thought you went a little insane with bricklinking before I realized that you used mirrors! Nice work!

Very clever! I wish there was more to your GAs than a bunch of helmets that nobody else has, that's the third one in a row....

Haha, I have the helmet. What I don't have is the gold bucket Handle! They helmets are really not that rare, it is Lord Garmadon's (from Ninjago) starting from the second wave onwards ( he wears this helmet in every set he has 4 arms)

Edit: Also for the other 2 GA you can use the regular old samurai helmet, which is very common.

Very nice concept here Garmadon, and impressive army there! :laugh::thumbup:

...A very fun experiment with mirrors!...

Fun? If it were me, I would have said painful. :tongue:

You need to get into Ninjago! :laugh: They're plentiful as bananas there!

Both Garmadon and Samurai X used the helmets; Samurai with the bucket handle.

The mirrors really give this a unique, foggy look. I've thought of using them myself but for other reasons. Good imagination for sure!

Thanks all!

Ha, ha! Thanks LordDan! :laugh:

That is so genius!

Thanks GG!

Thanks robuko! I think you've forgotten this? :wink: Also, as the others have pointed out, the helmet is not really very rare and samurai helmets work just as well :classic:

Thanks! Yes, it was a little painful! :laugh:

Great work! I really like the micro wall and the mirror effect is very nice :thumbup:

Thanks LJ, glad you like it!

Thanks Captain Dee! I was quite happy with the foggy look myself! I know Kai and others have used a mirror as reflecting water, which is certainly far easier than using two like this! :grin:

Hmmm, the mirror is a cool idea to double up an MOC.

Thanks Mrcp6d! It more like quadruples it here though! :laugh:

Sweet looking troop Garmadon! The spears look awesome.

Just wondering, if I were to counter this, could I avoid the mirrors and just go with a bigger base? (I was thinking about 24x20, as this is about what the build/mirrors presents :classic: ). My wife wouldn't like it if I start ripping mirrors off the walls of our home.

Imho the mirrors are making the base invinite, so their should be no size limitation :P

Give me a base big enough, and I'll show you what Nocturnus sets against your bling bling army.

Thanks ME! Supposing it's up to me I would say a 24x20 would be fine, although I would prefer a counter which also uses mirrors and the same base size if possible (after all, a lot of my work went into getting the mirrors just right and getting a good picture!) I can certainly see your not wanting to rip mirrors off the walls though! :grin:

Ha, ha! I wouldn't say quite infinite as you need to get the picture from somewhere which really limits the size! As I said to MassEditor, I think you could go with a 20x24, but I would prefer a counter using the mirrors :wink:

I was also wondering how you managed the large increase of troops from 3-5 to "infinite"....

That was a very good trick with the mirror :laugh:

I see the Ulandians have to resort to using cheap illusions to make themselves appear numerous. On the other hand, very inventive, I applaud the effort sir.

At least the mummies can't tell the difference! :tongue: Ha, ha, thanks!

Neat effect with the mirrors :thumbup: It'd be nice to see a standard shot though :classic:

Thanks SK! I was going to upload one but it didn't turn out very well (and wasn't nearly as impressive! :laugh:)
