  1. So you've read through the vast amount of information here. Now what? This topic is for all general discussion, questions, and inquiries about the Great Brick War. We welcome all members to engage in a thoughtful and productive discussion. Please be kind and courteous!
  2. Welcome to the Great Brick War, Generals! You are about to embark on a new strategic brick journey. Before posting, please be sure to read all of the rules below and in the General Rules Thread. The following countries will be available for selection at game opening. We will allow 2 players per country after the first 12 countries are selected once. Please try and select countries that others have not from the onset in the interest of making the game more diverse. Players who sign up during the initial rollout will have options to change countries and alliances that will not be given to players who join later. Briolui - (RoN) - (Available) (Available) Filace - (CoAC) - (Captain Genaro) (Available) Erotema - (CoAC) - (Sigpro) (Available) Refnor - (CoAC) - (Lord Buckethead) (Available) Toohati - (RoN) - (Leonardo da Bricki) (Available) Swintoc - (RoN) - (Silvasio) (Available) Alsarh - (CoAC) - (Lo var Lachland) (Available) Isle of Rahz - (RoN) - (Umbra-Manis) (Available) Plantasea - (CoAC) - (paintballman) (BoBKiD) Commonwealth of Southern Territories - (RoN) - (Stash2sixx) (jansued) New Brickika - (CoAC) - (Spud The Viking) (Adamsons) Deland Republic - (RoN) - (Faladrin) (French Man) Plighia - (CoAC) - (ODA 401) (Available) Tyera - (RoN) - (LegoRacer1) (Available) Balafih - (RoN) - (Johannsued) (Available) ______________________________________________________________ Players must post in this thread with the name of the country they wish to join. This is a first come first serve basis. Please refer to the country index thread to read summaries of the countries and help make a decision. Remember the goal of this game is to enjoy yourself. Do not pick a country solely because you believe it has an advantage, things change in war on the drop of a dime. Players who work harder with lesser countries may be rewarded more so than those who perform mediocre with greater countries. All things to consider. Be sure to introduce yourself and list: Your Alliance, Your Country, and post a 100 x 100 Picture of your character. Tell us about your country (be creative) and what you hope to accomplish in the game. If you have questions, post them up here. ______________________________________________________________ Show your colors with our custom signature banner! Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr
  3. We figured we'd open up a thread here, where people can post up their military style minifigs, customs, weapons, and gear. Post up your pics and try to include a brief description and impression of the items and their brands. Let people know what you think about them as they might be interested in purchasing them. We realize there is a separate section in the forum for minifig customization, but this is specific to military and for this game. Post up what you got!
  4. In here I will mention details and explanations about my builds Campaign 1 The Meeting The throne is inspired from Games Of Throns of course The name of the president is the reversed name of president (and LUG Ambassador) of Greek LUG "Gricks" - Spiro Gero(poulos) -> Orego Rips. He is actually a big guy also The war "Destruction of the Twelve Colonies" that mentioned and in where many chatracters fought is a fictitious interstellar holocaust first depicted in the 1978 motion picture Battlestar Galactica "George Saunders" is my SigFig, me "BoB Falldark" is my buddy from our LUG and co-player here in Plantasea, BoBKiD Secret Rooms The quote that judge Stolz says "When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace", seems invariably to be attributed to Jimi Hendrix. However, William Gladstone once said (prior to Hendrix): "We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace." ( William Gladstone 1809-1898) . In addition, at around the same time that Jimi Hendrix said his words, Sri Chinmoy Ghose said, "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, then there will be true peace." . While Jimi Hendrix may have been influenced by the quotes of the others, the words "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace" appear to be his own (or at least his own spin on theirs). The room of the meeting in the mansion of Duke Carceran is full of deitails of real and fictional wars: Ancient Greece, Medieval, Vikings, Vitenam, Ninjago, Fallout, explorers era, Nexo Knights, 2nd WW, UN missions, Star Wars, HALO, Samurai, Gears Of War, Minecraft. Pirates. As the final comic strip was not very well set and most of the details lost, you can see more pictures here. The Deal The drug lord is named after Captain Hector Barbossa from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" Hell Legion Selection The obstacle course came from the final trial of Greek Ranger School from which I proudly graduated many years ago. The idea behind the unit "Hell Legion" and their soldiers, came from the France Foreign Legion For the pictures of each recruid file, I tried to copy any players sigfig was presented until then Base In Filace -center section The building in the corner is copy of HQ building level 20 of the game "Boom Beach" ( to be continued...)
  5. All players must post here, with links to all of their new builds so that they can be scored. Each player shall make ONE POST in this thread and one post ONLY. They will continually update their original post as they progress through the game. This is for tracking and record keeping purposes.
  6. WELCOME TO BBN! The Brick Built News Channel Your Hosts for the evening (in order): Brick Johnson, John Studley, and Phil Brickman This is the place where staff members will create story lines and show events that are taking place in the brick world. Players will need to keep an eye on this thread as events may be covered that affect their country. These News Casts are independent of side builds and staff members will not receive points for any of these.
  7. Campaign 7- Failed State The RON and COAC Forces failed to secure all of the military installations in Xenor. They are both scrambling to secure the 3 remaining sites and engage each other on the battlefield. Sites Lima, Oscar, and Papa were not cleared by either side. Lima and Oscar are both clear of Nukes, but Xenor military personnel are still deemed a threat, though they have lost their leadership and have largely disbanded. In the shuffle, it is suspected that Xenor military personnel detonated a tactical nuclear weapon in the city of Haams outside of site Papa. Though small in size, the nuke did significant damage to the city. The staging COAC AND RON forces preparing to battle inside the city are now taking Nuclear Fallout precautions. Xenor military personnel have evacuated site Papa due to the engulfing fallout. Militaries from COAC and RON Nations arrived in haste to all 3 locations. The stage was now set for the largest battle of the war so far! Campaign Guidelines The 3 battlefields are: The radiated and battered city of Haams Weapons test site Lima Army Base Oscar Each player can choose which battlefield they want to attack. This does not need to be publicly disclosed until the player posts their campaign. (PLAYERS FIGHTING IN AND AROUND HAAMS MUST SHOW PREPARATIONS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR RADIATION - Post Apoc Fans, You're Welcome) Which ever side has the most cumulative points at each battlefield will capture that battlefield. The most battlefields captured wins. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP7)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP7) Filace - Broken Country" Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. MINIMUM SIZE BUILD IS 32 X 32 All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP7) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects. Players may crop one picture of their MOC onto a background picture to help with their landscape if they’d like. Pictures cannot be bigger than 800x600 Players may post a link to an offsite host such as Flickr where Higher Resolution pics are located. Be cool and share your photos in the GBW Flickr Group! Please refer to the General Rules Topic for limitations based on your Point Level. Upon completion, players must also post a link to their build in the AAR Thread as well letting the judges know that it is eligible for scoring. INTEL WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON 5/31/18. (2) PIECES AVAILABLE. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. LIMIT OF (1) PIECE OF INTEL PER PLAYER. CONTACT @TheBeeze VIA PM. NOT AVAILABLE TO STAFF. Campaign Duration 5/29/18 - 7/9/18 All builds will not be finalized until the closing date for the campaign. Players can edit their posts up until that point. As long as it is 7/9/18 somewhere in the world, you can submit. Use this as a deadline https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/usa/baker-island The Outcome The winning side will have successfully conquered Xenor and it will become a member of that alliance. Xenor's resources and land will be available to all members of that alliance. All players who participate will be awarded the points they earn for each build. The outcome will also determine what happens next. The highest scoring build will win the below prize pack courtesy of one of our sponsors, Minifig.cat Be sure to check out their site and all of the great products they offer to build up your armories!

    The Brick of Nations

    The Brick of Nations The Brick of Nations is an International Organization composed of Sovereign Nations and other International Organizations. The Brick of Nations is aimed at establishing International Law and serves as a forum for Nations to both air and resolve the grievances. The Organization has served for decades as a lasting moderator and advocate for global peace. This is where nations are free to bring forth their issues or seek to invoke international laws. Nations that have more than (1) Player must ensure that they have only (1) representative at a time to voice concerns at the Brick of Nations. This will be left to the individual nations to decide who their representative will be. The format for addressing the Brick of Nations Shall be as follows: 1. A player wishes to motion for a new international law - A player must post in this thread that their nation is seeking to institute an international law. That nation must... Build a case in their post as to why this needs to be done and... The player must get (3) other nations to co-sign their motion by posting agreement to said motion in this thread. If a player achieves the (3) cosignatures, the council (myself and staff) will determine if the cause can move to a general vote. If it is determined that the Brick of Nations is not going to vote, the issue is dead and cannot be resurrected unless circumstances provide building a substantial case. If the council approves the motion to vote, a separate thread will be opened to vote. Each nation will have (1) vote. If multiple entries are posted from (1) nation, the first one will be the vote counted. 2. A player can air a grievance with another nation - A player can seek to resolve an issue with another nation directly or they can ask for a council resolution. If a council resolution is requested, it must be detailed and show cause for a resolution. The council will determine the outcome of any resolution and may open the floor to a vote as outlined in #1. 3. A nation can make a formal declaration - this is used for nations to state intentions. Declarations of War, territorial outcomes based on battle, intent to break a treaty or alliance, ultimatums. Any country that is seeking to use military force against another must formally declare war against the country it is using force against. Any nation that uses military action against a sovereign nation without declaring war may be subject to action from the Brick of Nations. All posting in this thread is to be done in character and as a representative of your nation. Players are encouraged to create a unique Minifig to represent them as their nations Ambassador to the Brick of Nations. Staff may create ambassadors for your country to use for promotional content to drive the game. It is important to keep an eye on this section and try to build (pun intended) off of what the staff creates. This area is not to be abused or cluttered with endless back & forth ranting. Be professional and diplomatic. Accepted Laws through Legislation Passed by the Brick of Nations: Resolution BW001- The use of all Nuclear, Chemical, and Bio Brick Weapons is outlawed. Countries are to cease all programs furthering development of these projects.
  10. Campaign 6 Race to Safety Map Name: Studica Grid: F10 Oscar Time: 2345 An agent with the Plighia Special Services makes contact with Xenor rebels who have ties to the Servants of Freedom. The agent is hustled passed the men into a pickup truck heading who knows where.... Ten minutes down the road the truck stops and picks up an agent from Toohati along the same highway and keeps driving. They drive for over an hour with neither exchanging any information or pleasantries. They arrive at a warehouse just south of the border with Swintoc. Both agents are brought inside where they meet a man named Victor who explains he is with the Servants of Freedom and extends warm regards from Caesar, their point of contact who is unable to join them. Victor informs both of the agents that they will be taking a trip to a Xenor Army Base - Location Oscar, where they will intercept intel with the SoF. Victor cracks open a crate and starts handing out Xenor Army uniforms and Gear. Once suited up, they all get back in the truck and make their way to base Oscar. While enroute to the location, both agents wind up divulging to the other which government they are with. This is accompanied by heightened tension sitting with their enemy. They have no problem getting on the base. It becomes clear to the agents that the SoF clearly has contacts in high places. After passing through the check point and driving for 10 minutes down a long road in the base, the truck stops in front of a large concrete building. They all get out and two of the SoF members start carrying a crate toward the front door of the building. Victor exchanges greetings with the guards who ask for paperwork. Victor motions his men to bring the crate over. They crack open the crate to reveal their "paperwork" to the guards who naturally let them pass without issue. The guards on duty were placed there by SoF personnel embedded in the Xenor military just for this reason. Victor takes the two agents inside while the rest of his men stay outside pulling watch. While inside, the three men pass through the tight airlocked hallways. They come up to a solid enforced door with a single guard standing watch. He has been radioed by the guards at the door to let them pass through. The three men walk into what looks like an armory and see several boxes and crates that appear to be in the process of getting ready to ship out. Victor looks at one of the manifests on a crate and asks the agents to help him open the crate. They look at each other in hesitation and proceed figuring they've already come this far already. The agent from Toohati peers inside the crate and sees with his own eyes a Nuclear Warhead half way prepared to be used as with an explosive primer. Victor starts telling them that the SoF personnel they have embedded in the military tipped them off about a massive operation to smuggle WMDs around the continent into all of the other nations for use. The Plighian agent stands in disbelief and snatches the manifest out of the other agent's hands to read it with his own eyes. This particular package was being sent to Erotema. Victor and his Personnel carried the crate out and loaded it into the truck. Both agents accompanied them back into SoF territory. Before dropping the agents, Victor told them action would be needed to prevent Nuclear Armageddon from happening and that they would need to work together to eliminate this threat or it would be their own downfall. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With the revelation surrounding the Nukes found in Xenor, RON and COAC forces have agreed to launch a full scale invasion into Xenor in an attempt to secure military installations suspected of harboring WMDs. Campaign Guidelines RON and COAC forces should be shown engaging Xenor forces at locations across the country in an effort to secure possible WMD sites. There are 16 sites in total. RON and COAC forces will need to coordinate their movements to ensure that all 16 sites are covered. In the event a site is missed, the circumstance does not need to be explained. The terrain is temperate and cool. Often very windy and wet. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP6)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP6) Filace - Ouch that stings)" Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. MINIMUM SIZE BUILD IS 32 X 32 All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP6) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects.

Upon completion, players must also post a link to their build in the AAR Thread as well letting the judges know that it is eligible for scoring. Campaign Duration 3/13/18/18 - 5/7/18 All builds will not be finalized until the closing date for the campaign. Players can edit their posts up until that point. As long as it is 5/7/18 somewhere in the world, you can submit. Use this as a deadline https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/usa/baker-island The Outcome Both teams are working to prevent a nuke from going off. -In the event all of the sites are covered, Xenor will be disarmed and the RON and COAC will need to help stabilize the region and establish a new government in Xenor through the Brick of Nations. -If a site is missed, both sides will be on the hunt for missing WMD and at total risk. All players who participate will be awarded the points they earn for each build.

  11. [GBW - CP5] Plantasea - Behind Enemy Lines 6/8 - The Resque One of the downed pilots find refuge inside a closed hardware store. Luckily enough, the rescue team reaches the site exactly as the enemy finds his position. This is part 6 of the "Behind The Enemy Lines" cooperative storyline.

Many of the minifigs in this MOC were used by @paintballman in his CP5 MOCs and then mailed to me, in order to have the same level of details and a solid storyline. The container on the side of the building is hiding a power functions battery pack which powers up the lights in the hardware store! It took me a total of 3 days to make this MOC. I was at about 70% when I realized I had forgotten to install the hidden power funcions cables.

  13. Filace CP5- Bird in the Woods Part 2 of 8 COAC Campaign Map Name: Studica Grid: E8 After the shoot down of the COAC Jets flying over Xenor, the COAC embarked on a multiheaded Campaign to rescue the downed aviators and get them back to safety. Captain Beeze's team was briefed on the situation and where they would come into play in this large Operation. /url]Great Brick War -On the Flight Line. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/forum/180-the-great-brick-war by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Standing on the Flight Line the team was detailed on how they would be HALO Dropping into Xenor territory. The team was to jump from a cargo aircraft flying a commercial route to avoid detection by the Xenor Air Force. Great Brick War - CP05 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Once on the ground, the team would have a 4 Mile hike on foot. Great Brick War - CP05 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr The team would be moving under cover of dark. Great Brick War - CP05 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Their target: a Harrier out post close to the border. The Xenor airforce built small cutouts in the wooded areas along the mountains to take advantage of the Harriers VTOL capabilities. The bases were extremely difficult to spot. It was essential to take out as many of them on the ground as they could to support the aerial aspect of the rescue and for future aerial operation in the AO. Great Brick War CP5 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr The base well guarded by units from Xenor's Mountain Regiment. Great Brick War CP5 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Great Brick War CP5 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr The team crept up to the pad.

  19. Recruiting Campaign 1 The Fight for Support We are going to run a small contest and support campaign before rolling out Campaign 5. The goal here is to help boost our membership here on Eurobricks and gain some new members. There are a lot of talented military builders out there who we still have not reached. Our goal with this project is to reach them. Due to the sizing guidelines listed below and the goal of this campaign, players are asked to focus and build extremely detailed builds. The whole point of this game has been to advance ourselves as builders so let's put that to work here and shell out some serious quality work. All builds can be used as promotional material for the Great Brick War. If players are not okay with us using your Pictures to advertise the game, do not submit a build. We reserve the right to disqualify and not include any builds from completion or in our promotion campaign if we do not feel they are up to the quality we desire. There is no team planning needed for this so start working now and don't wait until the last minute. Build Guidelines Players are to build a 16x16 Vignette - No bigger, no smaller. Players are to show their troops doing anything of their choosing in any location- No Blood or Gore All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- RC1)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- RC1) Filace - Make Building Great Again") All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP4) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Players can only submit (1) Picture for Judging. (Other pictures may be linked) Pictures cannot have any watermarks as they will be used for advertising. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects. Players may crop one picture of their MOC onto a background picture to help with their landscape if they’d like. Picture Size is limited to 800x600 but players are encouraged to link to a Higher Resolution version we can use. Players may post a link to an offsite host such as Flickr where Higher Res pics are located. Share your photos in the GBW Flickr Group!

  20. Campaign 5 Through the Mountains Map Name: Studica Grid: E8 Time: 2330 Hours It has long been rumored that the COAC and RON were breaking international law and moving troops and supplies through Xenor to try and gain an upper hand on one another. The recent tumultuous activity in the Brick of Nations has stirred up a bit of trouble for all nations. Since the latest revelation of the CoST base inside Xenor being bombed by the Xenor air force, RON forces have begun amassing along the North Eastern border of Xenor in preparation for an Assault. Meanwhile a pair of COAC jets were dispatched on a reconnaissance flight over Xenor after the Filace intelligence agent was executed in hopes of spotting more RON Forces. The two jets were picked off by the Xenor Harrier force. Both pilots safely ejected in Xenor territory and are currently on the run. Efforts are now underway by COAC forces to push into Xenor to try and rescue their pilots and restore some balance of order as diplomacy has long since failed. Campaign Guidelines RON forces are to be shown either A. Coming to the aid of the bombed base they had inside Xenor or B. Attacking Xenor forces. COAC foraces are to be shown either A. Searching for the lost pilots or B. Attacking Xenor Forces. RON and COAC forces can be shown bumping into each other or bumping into Xenor forces while completing the rescue parts of the mission. Though not required, players who collaborate can improve their score. The terrain is snowy and mountainous. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP5)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP5) Filace - Broke Back Mountain") Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. MINIMUM SIZE BUILD IS 32 X 32 All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP5) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects.

    Season Greetings

    Hell Legion Christmas Wishes by George Adamidis, on Flickr
  22. A Hell Legion patrol walking between the damaged city of Carrefour...
  23. The first attack hit us pretty hard! We were tasked with setting up a forward position ahead of the front lines along with some other platoons from our company to stop or slow down enemy advancement. Intelligence told us that the enemy will make contact with us in three days time, and they were only off by a day and a half. We had set up two road-blocks along the road with the rubble that was laying around, but that work went to waste by an enemy rocket punching a hole through the first wall. None of us were fresh out of boot-camp, but few of us had ever seen combat, save for the sergeant, but even then it was only small border engagements with cartels. The explosion that punched through the first barrier jarred us at first, but when the .30 cal. went off we were brought back to reality. The first casualty was one of the guys from the MG team that hooked up with us, I saw him go down and it looked like he bought it. The Great Brick War-Battle for Carrefour by ODA 401, on Flickr I was in the back of a building with Sgt. Anders, providing cover for our squad's support gunner when a two-man Refnor recon team rode up to us, ducking for cover when they felt bullets bounce off of nearby walls: Refnor scout: "Who's in charge here?" Sgt. Anders: "I am, Corporal" Refnor scout: "We located an armored column making its way here, it seems this road is on their route." "Can you estimate their ETA?" "Ten minutes max" Refnor scout: "Must be an advanced team...they're a small force, but they have enough firepower to clear this whole area." "Ok, get you and your buddy back to your lines, we got a fight on our hands" "Yes sir" The Great Brick War-Battle for Carrefour by ODA 401, on Flickr "Thorson, patch me trough to TOC!" "On it sir" "TOC, this is Forerunner..." "TOC to Forerunner, we read you loud and clear." "TOC, We got an armored column heading our way..break..Do we have access to any CAS in the area..over?" "Forerunner, We have one times fast mover in the vicinity..break..call sign TIZONA..break..use air force frequency..over." 10-4..Forerunner copies..over and out. Forerunner to TIZONA, come in TIZONA." "Forerunner, this is TIZONA, whats your status, over?" "We are in the green..break..we have an armored column moving into our position minus ten mikes..break..requesting air support..break..our location grid F4 480 by 384, over." "Copy last..break..on route and ETA in 6 mikes, over." "Forerunner copies all..break..will wait for you arrival, over" "10-4, over and out." The Great Brick War-Battle for Carrefour by ODA 401, on Flickr The support gunner in our squad opened up on some enemies that were advancing through the alleyway. He wasted a few before they decided it was best to take cover. I was half expecting the claymore we had set up in that area to go off shortly, but they hadn't rushed through the length of the alley yet. The Great Brick War-Battle for Carrefour by ODA 401, on Flickr The Great Brick War-Battle for Carrefour by ODA 401, on Flickr It was going to be a hard fight, but we had to hold the line. And we hoped they wouldn't get too smart, we had only been able to construct light defenses, and we couldn't afford to take multiple hits from heavy weaponry.

  24. Filace CP4- Dockyard Ambush Map Name: Studica Grid: F4 After the crushing defeat by RON forces, the COAC withdrew back to the town of Carrefour to try and regroup and move forward. The Filace Marines were assigned the task of holding down the dockyard along the river while the higher ups planned out the next phase. Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr The Marines patrolled along the dock all hours of the night awaiting word on when the next move would be made.

  25. Campaign 4 Fighting for the City Map Name: Studica Grid: F4 Time: 0630 Hours After narrowly stopping the COAC Advance, RON forces are now trying to push the COAC back out of their territory. COAC Forces have dug in rather than completely withdrawing out of the city. Both sides have hunkered down in tight Close Quarters Combat with each side fighting from building to building engaging in small skirmishes to try and maintain control of a city block. And we're back after a much needed break so that no one would get worn out. Thanks for sticking around and we hope you enjoy this round. More to come! Campaign Guidelines Both sides are to show their forces engaging in Close Quarters Combat in a city. (Failure to do this will result in a loss of points) The goal for both sides here is to show coordination with each other across your builds. Stories should intertwine and share details. Be creative. This will be a big part of your score. Nations that currently have not declared war will need to do so before submitting combat builds or find other creative ways to build something to fit in with the guidelines. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP4)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP4) Filace - Fueling up the Jets") Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. MINIMUM SIZE BUILD IS 32 X 32 All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP4) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects.

Please refer to the General Rules Topic for limitations based on your Point Level. Upon completion, players must also post a link to their build in the AAR Thread as well letting the judges know that it is eligible for scoring. Campaign Duration 9/20/17 - 10/29/17 All builds will not be finalized until the closing date for the campaign. Players can edit their posts up until that point. As long as it is 10/29/17 somewhere in the world, you can submit. Use this as a deadline https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/usa/baker-island The Outcome If the COAC wins, they will maintain their foothold into the next campaign. If the RON wins they will be assaulting into COAC territory in the next round. All players who participate will be awarded the points they earn for each build. The winning team will earn a special tag. Players can have only (1) GBW Tag in their profile at a time. If you would like this tag, please let a GBW Staff Member know.
