Your trusted name in lack of quality!

Recommended Posts

Sup! My name's Jemm (not really but also kinda), new here, not LEGO.

I've been out of the game for too long. Still living with my parents while at university and unfortunately room layouts dictated that I haven't had a LEGO room for over 5 years now so I'm REALLY rusty on building (needing space for my MTG collection doesn't help matters either). Hopefully I can change that as time goes on (and I can use my disposable income on individual parts) but it's going to be a slow process.

Of the little stuff I have made in the previous years have been either Bionicle or Sci-Fi, but I've been wanting to break into fantasy, especially around Dungeons and Dragons, Monster Hunter, and general knights, dragons, and wizardry. On the sci-fi end, I'd love to get into building mecha, starships, space-faring life, and cool vehicles/aliens/people. I'd love to find a way to get better at building, especially when it comes to figuring out more complex or subtle design processes (and learning to do digital art/logos to complement the designs). And lastly, trains have always had a place in my childhood and heart, so learning to build/design them would be amazing.

If anyone can point me to resources on finding and buying pieces (especially how to master Bricklink, and about other trusted and affordable sources to buy from) I'd love some help! And lastly, if there are any good sized LEGO meetups in the West Texas/Southern New Mexico area that happen regularly, I'd love to attend as having some friends to learn from and with would really help (actually all of New Mexico is okay, as the drives are less arduous than getting to the rest of Texas from here, San Antonio is my absolute limit, and even then I don't trust my small Volkswagen enough to get me there)!

And lastly, I can't seem to find the tutorial for reducing image sizes on the site guidelines as the link loops back to the host page (unless it's under the flickr tutorial, but I've spent too much time on this post as-is).

Hope to see ya around!

Welcome to Eurobricks! There are answers to your questions on the forums as BaneShake said and have a good look around! There is also a forum dedicated trains so you should probably check that one out too!
