    Yamatonishiki shogun castle

    That's a lot of figures, not to mention the amazing black and white castle! Love it.

    Help with hoplites

    Upon review my question(s) did seem very vague, but your answer is exactly what I was looking for! I've seen your elf and drow armies before, and they look amazing. That Starbucks banner fits perfectly! I like what you said about taking what already exists and going as far as possible with it before doing anything else. There sure is a lot out there! Just a quick jaunt through flicker and Bricklink yielded some promising results. If only I had a bottomless wallet... I now I hopefully won't start painting or decal-ing or gluing for some time now. I'll have my hands full full with Bricklink and Brickforge for now. Hopefully the latter restocks some of their items in appropriate colors. Also, I'd love to see the un-posted custom army you mentioned! Thanks a lot!

    Help with hoplites

    Hello, soon to be fellow customizes! I will start of by saying that I am a purist... ish... When I say "purist" I mean that I am as of yet unwilling to cut, glue, mold, bake, sharpie, paint, etc.. LEGO bricks. I am willing though to do all of the above to non-Lego. I have recently ordered some Brick Warriors, and they are AWESOME!!!! Also, I got the Brick Forge hoplite pack (http://www.brickforg...&cat=582&page=1), which is also awesome... too awesome . I checked Brick Forge's site and YAY there are four different kinds of packs! Sadly there is only one color of javelin and two colors of shields, both not in bronze (that is, outside of the packs). Also, the helmets and shields by themselves for 10 soldiers might look bland, so I might want to paint or decal them. For now what I'm asking is: #1 Has anyone had experience doing something like this? If so, please comment! #2 Would it be worth it (the cost of paper, decals, paint, clear coat, the amount of time etc...)? Or is the fun for you guys not in the product, but in the making of it? #4 Because I'm new to this, would the finished product even look good? #3 Any other general advice to a newbie about customization will be appreciated. This probably will amount to nothing, but it could be the makings of a project! Also, I probably won't do anything with this until after December (wow, that's a long ways off). Only when I order some more stuff, or receive is as presents (my birthday is 7 days away from Christmas), will I be able to make some real decisions. In the meantime, general advice to a newbie about customization will be appreciated. Thanks in advance! How did this paragraph get so big!

    Those combos looks really good! The black and white work very well. Plus, you gotta love those Brick Warriors! WOW!! That's a lot of samurai! I count ish-250. If only I had the money of you old geezers grown-ups...

    You know you are a fan of Lego when...

    ...you measure the price of everything in Lego sets: "Wow! That car is, like, 20 Orthancs!" ...You work all day trying to get that one angle to work. The next morning you wake up and your subconscious has solved it!

    Nexo Knights 2016

    Wow... Saw the pic and video.... Geez...... Those little red guys freak me out! I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight! On another note, I think there could be some great new visors and prints! Is it just me, or does it look like Macy and the orange knight's arms are weird? Also in the front of the picture there appears to be mini versions of the lava sphere monsters that pull the lava chariot. This theme might make it into my collection, but I think I'll probably just get the cool pieces from Cracklink (BTW, just started with Bricklink, my wallet is suffering).

    Dark Castle

    Wow, I really love this castle! I'm a big fan of big black towers/castles, so this makes my day! It reminds me of Barad-Dur from The Lord of the Rings. Great work!

    That army is Very nice! I love the third party elements (especially the Rohan-ish helmets). That custom barding is looking awesome, as well as all the printed torsos! This just makes me want to get some capes....
