As much as I enjoy Lego, I have a very small collection of sets that includes a bunch of Mixels, some minifigures, and a few mini modulars. The Mixel max builds invariably leave you with a handful of unused pieces, typically 1x1 studs and slopes and other miscellaneous small bricks. So yesterday I challenged myself to use some small black baseplates as the foundations of a few micro city scenes, inspired in part by soccerkid6's clever medieval micro builds. Here's what I ended up with. These two buildings are built on two 2x4 black baseplates each: And each of these is built on a minifig baseplate: They ended up being a bit abstract, but I enjoyed the challenged of using excess pieces and trying to create a theme across several builds. In particular, it was good to use some of those extra minifig baseplates, which I hadn't been able to use in anything else until this project.
Hello all! I don't normally post in this forum, and I normally don't do System MOC's very often (and the ones I do are normally in LDD, which this one is), but decided that, with the release of Muse's most recent album "Drones" and having flicked through all the amazing artistic representations of the songs on the album, I decided I wanted to MOC as many of those artworks as possible. This is the second one so far (you can view and comment on my first one, Psycho, here), named "The Handler". This one was a bit of an abstract and probably wouldn't completely work in real bricks, so I did it in LDD and did a couple of renderings of it. Firstly, the artistic rendering and comparison to the original artwork: And a plain render so you can see the true colours: I guess all I really found out from this is that 16M chains are really hard to position correctly in LDD, so please don't shoot me down because the chains aren't completely straight and impossible to connect at both ends the way I wanted! (p.s. if anyone knows how to get them straight, here's the file). Positive and constructive comments are really appreciated. If you've also got the new Muse album and would like to see more LEGO renderings of the artworks, you can say which song you'd like me to do next too. Enjoy!
