  1. Great. I love the floor in particular, the varying shapes are effective in creating the idea of a rough stone floor.
  2. Nice, I like the turret on the vehicle and the rocks look very natural.
  3. Great! Boats, rocks, vegetation, and water is brilliant! Very detailed. I love the camouflage on the leaders gun. Good Job!

    (GBW) Phase 2 - Information Reveal & Discussion

    Sorry, I have probably missed something but what is theme etc for campaign 1? Thanks
  6. Very Nice. The use of vegetation here is particularly effective and the different heights of the grass create a very realistic rugged atmosphere. The idea is great and pulled of well. The mini figure positioning and expressions are very good and fit well with the story. A good build here.
  7. Nice build, I like the drone and the forklift vehicle.
  8. General Map C3 http://image-2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr It all started many years ago in the 1960's at the peak of global tension. With communist nuclear threats and the like, Pr T Innokentievich began the Alsarhian nuclear project. As part of this he built a number of nuclear bunkers around the country. However he became corrupted and instead of spending all the funds on the project stole much of the money for himself. The resultant shelters were relatively strong but not able to withstand nuclear blasts or practical for long-term human habitation. Instead the government used them to store hazardous materials. These would be safe as the public did not know the shelters existed. As time went by the shelters fell into states of disrepair and were forgotten only living on as a legend among veteran soldiers. The Present Day http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 11.11 #4 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The woods near the town of Virmingrad were suspected to be a hiding place of rebel groups and so with rising tensions it had become a new spot on patrol. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 11.11 #3 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The TZ-37 (known as the rottweiler) the newer larger version of the TZ-35 was the vehicle conducting the patrol. It came round a corner on a country road then screeched to a stop. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.22 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.23 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr A soldier exited the vehicle then examined a large hole in the road. He climbed through the hole into what was below... http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.24 #3 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.26 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr It had once been the entrance to a bunker but now weeds pushed their way through the floorboards and water flooded the floor. It was clearly a spot common with criminals; there were drugs, weaponry, explosives, alcohol and forged bank notes scatter everywhere. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.24 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The soldier put on a gas mask in case of hazardous materials and headed to the vault door. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.25 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr On his way past he saw the chilling sight of a dead body whatever unusual concoction they had overdosed on still grasped in their hands. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.26 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr He got to the door and turned the wheel, it was stiff but he was able to move it and enter. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.32 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr He saw the chaos around him, illuminated by a eerie yellow light. It was then that he realised; the old stories were true. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.35 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The floor was a mess where hazardous materials had spilled and grass sprouted between the broken tiles of the floor. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.39 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.40 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.40 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The soldier turned on a torch and examined the boxes and crates, covered in weird markings and symbols. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.41 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Then he saw the spilled hazardous material. He was about to turn and leave when something stopped him. It was the markings on the bottle. They were exactly the same as those found in Dusk's hideout. It couldn't be a coincidence. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.47 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr He left the bunker and called in hazardous material control unit on a highly advanced tablet. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 11.07 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr In the meantime he found the source of the mysterious yellow glow - a skylight made of the super strong glass used in the space missions occurring at the time the bunker was created. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 11.09 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The hazardous materials team arrived and the patrol team left. Notes: - Printed tiles (iPad and Poison sign) are from firestar toys - Overview of lower level http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.44 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 10.44 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr - Overview of vehicle http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 11.13 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 11.14 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 11.14 #3 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr TZ-37 has working doors and space for 4 minifigures internally - driver and 3 passengers (1 additional mini figure can be placed on the roof to operate the gun) (Note: this was not made at the same time as 'Unrest in the Country', the latter was made in advance but both were photographed together for ease)
  9. General Map E2 The farming towns in the Ziggakrelp region are mainly inhabited by refugees from the original war of Priunulian independence. Those from Walara and Priunulia have until recently managed to live here together in peace. With tensions rising between the two nations and Dusk inciting acts of terror and violence, conflict has broken out in this area. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.09 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr A family of Priunulian plantation owners found themselves and their property mercilessly attacked by Walaran rebels. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.10 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The owner Captain Sokhor had already lost his wife in a fight with the Walarans. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.10 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.11 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The military was called in in the hope that their presence may diffuse the situation. The 4th Volorsk amphibious division partnered with the 3rd Volorsk to provide all terrain transport in the Caiman HAAV (Heavy Amphibious Assault Vehicle) and the Bullfrog ARV (Amphibious Reconnaissance Vehicle). http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.12 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.15 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Troops exited the vehicle and moved to positions http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.16 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Two soldiers moved inside the wreckage of the building. Water flooded the floor from a burst pipe, furniture was upturned and rubbish was scattered across the floor. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.17 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.18 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://image by marvelBoy123, on Flickr A rebel waited up above but he was surprised by the soldier who came up through the floor and was shot before he could react. The soldiers then checked the building for further insurgents but it was empty http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.19 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr They managed to take the other rebel alive for questioning, then headed back to their vehicles - their mission complete. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.21 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr They had managed to save the old mans life, but he had lost so much a hand, a home, a wife ... http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.21 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr and a son. Notes: -The main focus of this build was the wrecked building, inspiration came from Andreas and his brilliant scenes- Raid, Barren Main and Impact. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.22 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr - I tried to make the scene seem authentic to the setting: crops in fields, a rough stone road. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.23 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr - Some close up shots of the vehicles. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.23 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.24 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.25 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The Bullfrog, with two opening doors and space for two minifigures or one minifigure and a mortar attachment as show in the main story. Inspiration came from Pixel Fox's brilliant rendition of the VW Type 166 Schwimmwagen on Flickr. I used the first four studs of this design then designed the rest myself. Credit where credit is due. http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.26 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.26 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr http://Photo on 17-03-2019 at 08.26 #3 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The Caiman with a opening rear hatch for soldiers entry and exit.
  10. General Map E2 After escaping the Nekrosavov Hydro-Dam the man known as Dusk has remained hidden. Due to threats if attacks continue, Dusk has switched tactics - broadcasting WDS propaganda on a unused radio channel. In an attempt to silence his foul lies a team of elite soldiers under the leadership of Generals Zhaytsev and Kuhlsov is charged with finding him. Until now they have had little luck but a lead as to the location of the broadcasts has come through. Acting quickly the team is dropped of near the location and arrive late afternoon getting into positions. http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 16.56 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Kuhlsov (an expert marksman and one of the first soldiers to get an MK18 assault rifle) covers the door of the decrepit building http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 16.58 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Zhaytsev approaches the door and bursts through firing. http://Photo on 09-03-2019 at 11.28 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Kuhlsov follows behind him. http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 17.49 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr They enter the building which seems to be deserted. http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 17.50 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Kuhlsov spots recording equipment although Dusk is not there he clearly has been recently http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 17.51 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr A fellow comrade provides cover - a standard procedure in missions such as this http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 17.52 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Zhaytsev spots something unusual on the floor and investigates. http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 17.55 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr It seems that the building is only part of their base of operations. A trapdoor leads inside the rock face to a storage area. http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 17.55 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Carefully, Zhaytsev crawls through, alert for any rebels who may be hidden below. http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 18.28 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The area is clear of insurgents but Zhaytsev spots some illegal hazardous material. It seems as if acts of terrorism are only a part of their operations. http://Photo on 06-03-2019 at 18.31 #3 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Kuhlsov spots a coded message. The two exit the building, the target is not there but they have gained some valuable clues. They call in HQ and request a forensics team to come and collect information for analysis. http://Photo on 09-03-2019 at 11.38 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr They leave the area but three soldiers remain patrolling in case the enemy returns. Notes: - I have got rid of the NVG, this is a light build and they seem out of place. - I have tried to get more terrain, there is a river and the idea of land nearby eroded. http://Photo on 09-03-2019 at 13.01 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr - The last picture was not intended to be dark but yellow bricks do not photograph well in bright light so I had to improvise - I think this works in the story time frame however please take this into account.
  11. Great, love the trees. The vegetation is superb - very realistic.

    Introduction and Country Selection Thread

    Official Lego sets even mods are not really used however use of vehicle kits from companies like Brickmania is allowed, but players must give credit in their post about it. This goes even if you did some mods to it. If you didn't build it from scratch, give credit where it's due. Please Check Phase 2 General Rules Thread for more information. You will score better for a smaller build that you have made from scratch than simply modifying a Lego set.

    The Brick of Nations

    President Dmitrievich of Alsarh BoN Ladies and Gentlemen, those of you who keep up to date with the news will have heard of the tragedy at Nekrosavov Hydro-Dam. It has been catastrophic for my people and national morale. However we are not asking for aid, we are here to talk about what or rather who caused this. This is the third attack against my neutral country in connection to the Walara - Priunulia war. Normally an act like this would cause us to declare war but that is not what we want. Effective immediately Alsarh is cutting all trade with Walara and if further attacks by their splinter groups the same punishment will apply to Priunulia. We will only revoke this punishment if we can hold talks with Walara or conflict is peacefully resolved. Further attacks will result in further more strict punishments - you have been warned! Secondly our condolences to President Metaxas of the Coral Islands with the passing of his wife one year ago in an unforgivable act. In light of this we would like to consider working more closely with the Coral Islands to stop such atrocities as have been felt by both our nations.
  14. General Map D2 Hello and welcome to Alsarh today, your latest news from our glorious nation and beyond! http://Photo on 24-02-2019 at 10.44 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Today we are joined by President Dmitrievich himself on this sad day for our nation. http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.31 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr This Morning our Nekrosavov Hydro-Dam - although small a well known symbol of our new government and their project to make our nation great again - fell victim of an attack http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.32 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The dam produces electricity through groundbreaking technology and innovation http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.33 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr ... and is home to numerous marine species http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.36 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The Terrorists from the Walara Dominance State or WDS took positions around the dam planning to destroy the entire dam causing flooding downstream. http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.36 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Led by a man known as Dusk they are ruthless fanatics who are trying to force our nation into their conflict through acts of violence http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.37 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr For this operation they are well equipped with RPGs and TNT. http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.43 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Thankfully the dam was being guarded by General Zaytsev and a fellow soldier http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.39 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr ...who spotted the attack http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.42 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr ...and eliminated the rebel with the TNT. http://Photo on 23-02-2019 at 17.44 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr However they were unable to eliminate all the rebels and an Rocket was fired at the dam http://Photo on 24-02-2019 at 10.47 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The two soldiers managed to escape the dam http://Photo on 24-02-2019 at 10.54 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr ...but were unable to prevent its destruction. http://Photo on 24-02-2019 at 10.54 #2 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr Three people were killed and five being treated for injuries, due to debris being carried down the river. The remote villages of Glavo and Podokutsk were without electricity for multiple hours and other dams downstream have suffered damage. http://Photo on 24-02-2019 at 10.56 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr The insurgent responsible for the dams destruction was killed in a firefight afterwards but Dusk is still at large. The President will address this issue at the Brick of Nations later today. http://Photo on 24-02-2019 at 10.44 by marvelBoy123, on Flickr And that is the headlines for now be sure to tune in later for further information.
