  1. Please forgive the shameless self-promotion. You may remember the novel-like prose of my entries. Playing AG gave me a chance to write and to learn. My characters (some of them) were ported in from a story I was working on before I joined AG. Unsurprisingly, it was also inspired by 90's multi-faction lego space and so there was a degree of overlap that made it easy to do that. As I played AG, however, my characters and story both evolved - my main character was a brunette until she became a minifigure for AG - now I can't imagine her without that distinctive red hair. After AG, some of my new characters and ideas ported back into my story too and finally (I know, it's taken a while), my first full novel is finished. Some of my AG chapters adapted straight into the early portion of the book; I first used the phrase 'Boxrunner' in my AG work. The book is at 'second draft' stage. It isn't published and I am seeking some beta readers who are willing to sit down and give it a proper read and then offer some feedback. I think it would be right to open that to the AG community who gave me such encouragement when the game was running. It's available in ePub format if you have Apple Books or some other suitable reader. If you would like to read it (and really will give it a good go), please message me and we will make arrangements. So a thank you to everyone who played this game. I learnt so much (and had fun) and my characters than I love and have invested so much time in would not be who they are without having been to Andromeda first. And as you would expect, a lot of the spaceships in the book have designed with Lego. : ) And yes... Yseult still has an attitude problem, ; )

    Razor Crest 1:150...ish

    Thank you. The stickers are just bleed from official sticker sheets cut off and sized as needed.

    Razor Crest 1:150...ish

    Here is my Razor Crest. Built to the same scale as all my other ships so it's nice to be able to put them side by side. The landing gear retracts but isn't clean. Both side ramps and the rear ramp lower with a hollow cargo deck. She's also quite sturdy as I went for a flat plate solution to the upper section. I don't usually model ships, I design my own and now I know why because this thing was so awkward. Everything I did to get one bit looking better ruined something else nearby and I ended up going round in circles. I'm probably happiest with the engines and least happy with not getting a smooth slope down either side in front of the pylons.

    AG - Introduction and Discussion

    These are awesome. I remember that first go you had with Long and the difference only shows how far you've come.

    [MOC] Tomytronic 3-D

    One of the coolest-looking handheld LCD games from my childhood, the Tomytronic 3-D. Mine was Sky Attack, the dark red one. A Tron-like tank game shooting recognisers overhead. The buttons would probably have been better as side-on plates but I was building for a challenge so time was pressing. Really pleased with how I got the overall shape though and the viewfinder eyeholes.

    [MOC] MR2400 Horizon

    You read it correctly. I find these kind of builds all the more impressive for that very reason.

    [MOC] MR2400 Horizon

    Potentially, one of the more ridiculous things I've seen done with LEGO but all so beautifully executed. The ship is wonderful in its own right. Exceptional work.

    [MOC] Approach/Landing Pad 1

    New section: Landing zones. The numbers and latter float so they can easily be removed and replaced as required. The 'G' is for general so you might use 'C' for cargo or 'R' for restricted, however you please.

    [MOC] Red Walker

    Wouldn't have been out of place in AG... Though I would have had to follow it up with a MANTIS version twice the size! ; ) Thanks. Those feet are horribly delicate though and fell off so many times.

    MOC: Hologram from Home

    This is beautifully built and presented.

    [MOC] Red Walker

    Be careful crossing the snow plains. Red Walkers prowl the tracks and prey on the weak.

    [MOC] Approach/Landing Pad 1

    I've finished a second 34x34 section. This one is a Taxiway T-junction... I may be running out of small tan/dark tan pieces.

    [MOC] Approach/Landing Pad 1

    Hangars maybe. I try to build in retractable landing gear to my micro-ships now. No wheels... They'll just have to hover.

    [MOC] Approach/Landing Pad 1

    Thanks. That's why with this one, the plan is for the ship to taxi from the pad to a landing zone where the facilities would be. More like a real airport, I suppose. The idea is for 34x34 sections that can be put together to form a spaceport. Other sections (if I get to them) will be taxiways, landing zones and maybe eventually a terminal with a tower. But there will be a least one more pad.
