    [MOC] Roman Aqueduct!

    I've always been fascinated with technological ingenuity in the past, both in engineering and architectural areas. One of those achievements is definitely the aqueduct.

  2. I'm a huge fan of roman history and wanted to build a roman army but unfortunately LEGO produced just 3 Romans - 2 soldiers and one emperor. The roman legionnaire (col090) came with a red tunica, a lorica segmentata (laminar armour), a cingulum militare (belt), a galea (helmet), a scutum (shield) and a spear. Nowadays the minifigure is expensive as hell. The roman commander (col147) came with a dark red tunica, a lorica musculata (muscle cuirass), dark brown pteruges (leather strips) at the waist, a galea with a crista transversa (crosswise helmet crest), a dark red cloak and a gladius (sword). The crosswise helmet crest identifies him as a centurion. I found it quite monotonous to build an army of just two types of soldiers so I looked for other minifigure parts to pimp them up or create different types of uniforms. As I'm a purist I only used genuine LEGO parts and no 3rd party parts. First, I thought the legionnaire was quite "naked", so I added red short sleeves to his tunica, shoulder armor for the lorica and a red cape. As roman legionnaires didn't carry spears but pili, I built a pilum consisting of a harpoon, a lightsaber hilt and a 3l bar. Some of my legionnaires wear a leather utility belt (from Catman). I also found the centurion naked, so I added dark brown short sleeves to depict leather pteruges protecting his shoulders. I gave him a vitis (vine staff) as symbol of his rank and authority. Now I started to create some new types of troops. As the only other scutum produced by LEGO is the black Baturion (coltlbm24) shield, I decided to make some soldiers with a darker color scheme. Because the black shields look similar to the pretorian shields from the 2000 movie "Gladiator", it seemed obvious to build some pretorians. I took the commander torso (which ist the darkest torso) and looked for other legs assemblies that look "roman". The only two good looking legs assemblies are from the Gladiator (col066), which has pteruges and dark tan boots, and from Sherry Scratchen-Post (coltlm2-6), which also features pteruges but dark brown boots. I chose the darker one (Sally Scratchen-Post) and added a dark purple cloak, dark purple short sleeves and a black pilum. Voilá: A "Gladiator"-style pretorian. This pretorian has red hair as many pretorians were of germanic decent. Next, I needed some cavalry. Roman cavalrymen wear lorica hamata (chain mail) which is more flexible on horseback. They also carried spears and a parma (oval shield). The most realistic chain mail is the Kingdoms series chain mail of 2010. As I haven't used the Gladiator legs assembly with the dark tan boots yet and boots seem to be a logical equipment for riders, I decided to combine the chain mail with dark tan boots. Matching dark tan short sleeves and a dark tan cloak complete the cavalryman. Unfortunately LEGO sells only odd oval shields, so I had to use a round shield. The archer auxiliarii have nearly the same outfit but they wear an etruscan helmet (from the Prince of Persia sets) instead of the galea. I had a lot of capes, so I made some cold weather gear soldiers with long sleeves and a second cape over the shoulder. Officers and NCOs The legion is commanded by a legate. To emphasize his position I gave him a unique color - white. I took the helmet crest from Battle Goddess (col183) and white boots and skirt that resembles pteruges from Tennis Player (col269). The legate wears an officer's bronze muscle cuirass from Spartan Warrior (col018). White short sleeves and a white cloak complete his outfit. The second in command is the tribune. He also wears the officer's bronze muscle cuirass but the more common dark tan boots. I added a fur overcoat inspired by the character of Maximus from "Gladiator". The signifer carried the standard for a cohort or century. As I haven't used the third typical roman armor yet, the lorica squamata (scale mail), I decided to equip him with that armor. The scale mail torso is from the 1988/89 castle sets. Signiferi mostly wear bear furs over their helmet, but as there are no bear headgears I used a fox/wolf headgear (as it is often depicted in modern media). The signum had a small statuette of an animal at the top and several phalarae (medaillons) were mounted to the staff. The signifer carried a parma for protection, lacking a oval shield I gave him a round shield too. The pretorians have their own signifer. He wears dark purple and a leopard fur over his helmet (as seen in "Gladiator"). The vexillifer carried the banner. In order to distinguish him from the signifer, I used the chain mail instead of the scale mail and a regular helmet with feathers. The cornicen played the cornu, a big round horn. I made the cornu of 1 nozzle, 2 sausages (!), 2 hinges and 1 cone. Update 2020/08: As I got a new blue cape, I decided to make a naval commander (the historical sources state that naval officers wore blue capes, seriously). I added the legs assembly from Cheerleader (col002) to depict white pteruges with blue decorations. A victorious military commander on his horse. To emphasize his festive apparel I gave him the pearl gold muscular armor from Flying Warrior (col233), the large cape from Queen (col243) and the headgear with gold laurel wreath from Roman Emperor (col133). A cavalry (see above) signifer (see above) on horseback. A roman officer without his armor. In the 2016 movie "Ben Hur" roman soldiers wear light leather vests under their metal armors to protect themselves from chafing. The leather vest is from Hun Warrior (col180). I added arms with wristbands.
  3. Considering the worldwide recognizability, the endless potential and the minifigures attempts, how is it possible that Ancient Rome never became an official theme?

  5. From the first day that i start to building with Lego i want to make a little creation with my favorite comic heroes Asterix and Obelix.. There is a little village in Armorica (present-day Brittany), a province of Gaul (modern France), in the year 50 BC. Julius Caesar has conquered nearly all of Gaul for the Roman Republic. The little Armorican village, however, has held out because the villagers can gain temporary superhuman strength by drinking a magic potion brewed by the local village druid, Panoramix (Getafix). The chief of the village is Majestix (Vitalstatistix) and the brave heroes of the village are Asterix, Obelix and his little dog Idefix (Dogmatix)! All the Galues are fearless.. except one thing that they fear.. If the sky fall on their heads! Asterix and Obelix!! Asterix is drinking his potion.. while Obelix is getting ready to deliver the menir on the romans head and hit as many he can before the others come..!! Always with him is the fearless Idefix (Dogmatix )!! The little Gaule village.. Druid Panoramix (Getafix) makes the magic potion.. Chief Majestix ( Vitalstatistix) is ready for the battle..!! Ordralfabétix (Unhygienix ) he argues with Cétautomatix (Fulliautomatix) cause his fish as fresh as the sea..!! (NOT) And Âgecanonix (Geriatrix) as the oldest of the village he just want to hit some romans again.. his wife is a little a bit afraid for him.. but.. she loves him!! It's a beauty to see that Assurancetourix (Cacofonix) is hanged out there and our ears will only listen to the melody of the birds.. "Ils sont fous ces romains" Centurion: "The fat is comming..!!!" The romans are here Idefix..!! A menir delivery is comming!! The back view.. And that's all folks..!! I think it came up pretty good and I enjoyed very much the build of this Moc! I hope you like it also!! Please C&C Ps. Special thanks to Kostas for his help with the hair of Obelix!! & soccerkid6 for his great tutorial that i used for inspiration for my house!
  6. So I wrote a book on FALL OF CONSTANTINOPLE and illustrated it using Legos. Wanted to share some of my pictures here. The first picture is Sultan Mehmed in the mosque (you can see the mimbar in the back) along with his close allies Zaganos Pasha and the soldier Hasan. This picture is of the Sultan praying in the mosque before embarking on his campaign. This is a scene from the Battle of Varna, fought by Sultan Mehmed's father Sultan Murad, which destroyed the Hungarian and Christian forces and paved the way for the Fall of Constantinople. Trying to attach other pictures but the site isn't letting me yet. Perhaps there is a wait time.

  8. Hi guys! This MOC created with LDD is an interpretation of one of the oldest monument in the city of Rome: the Temple of Hercules Olivarius (sometimes erroneusly called the temple of Vesta). This is a simple recreation of a common day at Foro Boario, with some romans minifigures living their lives: a mother with her son going at the forum, two militaries talking each other, a rich man walking out of the temple (maybe after he made a gift to the priest...), a guy chilling under an olive tree, waiting for his fiancee, a man offering an apple to his loyal horse. At the entrance of the temple is possible to recognize two statues: the god Apollo on the left and Mercury on the right. I hope you guys like it! =) Have a nice day!

    [LDD MOC] Roman Villa

    This is a humble Roman Villa that I worked on in LDD for a while... I never finished it but I am quite satisfied with it, so I'd like to share it with you. I would love to build it in real bricks, but I don't think that will be possible anytime soon. When I stopped building the piece count was over 10,000. And if I ever built it in bricks I'd want to make an interior and have figures. Without further ado, here it is: Pattern on the ground in the garden: Closeup on the wall (inspired by Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome):
