  1. That was my thought, and when i tried to find reviews from other websites the main response were people asking the same question. Think it's one to steer clear of unfortunately!
  2. There are some crazy discounts on a site called bricksmaze.com which drew me in with the prospect of picking up the rogue one sets I wished I'd gotten (TIE striker, Krennics shuttle and maybe the Y-wing) but my too good to be true alarm has kicked in and I can't find reviews for the site and I'm rather sceptical. Anyone know anything about this site?

    [MOC] Post Apocalypse Tanker Truck

    Oh what a build, what a lovely build! Why build regular when you can go post apocalyptic? I love the unusual piece challenge, I might have to start doing that myself. Did this build inspire you to make more along a similar theme?
  4. I saw those the other day, wallets a bit empty at the moment but I might have to get one anyway as a hoth lover, let me know what you think of it, might sway my decision.

    [MOC] Lego Orbital Kinetic Strike Satellite

    Just got back from checking out your other builds and they look awesome. Can't wait for the stealth build, will you be keeping the same colour scheme or going for a darker tone? Usually when I build future based stealth vehicles and crafts I go for the opposite, building in yellow, orange or white with grey and black elements, from it's got stealth technology or a cloaking device it won't need the camouflage!
  6. I bought several of these when they first came out, absolutely love the deathtroopers and wanted to add as many as possible to the Imperial Army

    [MOC] Lego Orbital Kinetic Strike Satellite

    I like this design a lot, and I like the use of the gold pieces. I'm also a fan of the idea of satellite based weapons such as the GDI ion cannon from Command and Conquer. I take it this is based off of the idea of a relativistic kill vehicle or RKV? It uses a planet's gravity well to accelerate the projectiles, not needing as much power to launch them. Is there going to be some ground based companion? Like a spotter unit or smaller targeting drone?
  8. + frantically searches for pieces to build the xenomorph+
  9. I really enjoyed the build for this, even more after I added more clear bricks to make it sit higher, but now I want to make a huge sarlaac pit!
  10. Saw some of the Solo sets in Asda in the U.K., being hidden on the very top shelf where they normally keep all surplus stock, still had the last wave out on main displays. Naturally had to liberate two patrol battle backs cause let's be honest one isn't enough to expand an imperial army, not when there's a regular officer with facial hair up for grabs! Im a huge fan of this small set, the build is actually a reasonable proportion to the minifigs and just look at the trooper. Look at them! The small imperial logo stud isn't a bad thing either!

    [MOC] M39 "Falcata" light hovertank

    I really like this, looks like a good infantry fighting vehicle, very not so distant futuristic. Great colour choice and im actually a big fan of those rigs you've got on the minifigs.

    W40k Tau Battlesuit

    Well I've nearly finished the drones, which are like floating disks with guns......so they could be the battlebiscuits you're looking for

    W40k Tau Battlesuit

    The extra bulk is intentional, in universe the irridium upgrade is increased and heavier armour, and the shoulder pads were to give it more of a samurai look. The legs were tricky cause I didn't want to make it too tall but I wanted all the movement I could get. I've since revised the model, it's smaller, closer to scale and I think the legs look better and more in proportion. I've also added realistic weapons instead of the stud shooters, though I miss the ability to actually shoot! More pictures to follow suit, with added drone.
  14. Picked up the republic frigate which I'm looking to making a few changes to, then for my birthday my partner and daughter gave me the Tracker-1 which is a great build and looks awesome, as well as the desert skiff escape. Loving the tatooine themed sets at the moment!

    W40k Tau Battlesuit

    So, I've always been a fan of warhammer 40k, specifically the Tau. Their battlesuit designs just do it for me. Since getting back into Lego I've been itching to start building anything from this universe. This is my first complete attempt, having gone through half a dozen different designs, each one getting progressively smaller until I've settled on the right scale whilst keeping the correct shape. I present an XV8 Crisis Battlesuit. This particular one is a Commander with an in universe 'irridium' upgrade, twin fusion blasters, shield generator and drone controller. https://imgur.com/H24sH6u https://imgur.com/JoKbSK4 https://imgur.com/Dm2dqqj https://imgur.com/I7Z3NuB https://imgur.com/0E5mm4E Images for reference This is about as small as I can get it with the pieces I have and keeping the overall shape and movement. I'd originally tried to get it with a pilot and opening chest plate as it is in canon, but it ended up being much bigger, and one of my first attempts came out the size of an in universe 'ghostkheel', a battlesuit much bigger than this one, so I've settled for imagination. It's made largely from Reys' Speeder and the creator 3 in 1 Mythical Creatures sets, plus odd other assorted pieces. I'd like to try and get some more detailing onto it, especially the rear of the legs and maybe the torso, see if I can find some printed tiles or something. I might also try and make more realistic weapons for it, I know the ones attached are stylized. I'm either going to try and build some accompanying drones, or another suit, or something from another faction entirely! Comments, criticism, advice and other W40k mocs and ideas very much welcome!
