The start of a new journey.

With the recent attacks on her homeland, Lady Tywind and her two knights set off to find warriors willing to aid in its protection. With any luck, when she returns, an army of loyal soldiers will follow her.

#384979 Brickfair Swag, Brick Warriors review, and more!

Posted by Nightstalker on 18 August 2012 - 03:33 AM

First off Brickfair was absolutely fantastic, and though I'm a little late posting Brickfair stuff, I still thought it was worth mentioning.

First off here is an extensive look at all the displays at Brickfair 2012:
http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=509593

More importantly...
http://www.brickshel...12/dsc00936.jpg

Now onto a bunch of reviews

RT Armor
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01262.jpg
Back: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01263.jpg

I picked up about 5 of these armor pieces and they are very well made. It even contains a stud on the back which can even double as the front side of the armor as well. The armor has very broad shoulders, so it does limit what weapons you can place in the minifig's hands. It is just as durable as any other LEGO made armor piece, and it is was of the few futuristic chestpieces out there.

Combat Armor
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01264.jpg
Back: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01265.jpg

I really love this armor piece :). It has a nice modern look to it, but it is also pretty cool when it comes to futuristic soldiers. It has plenty of details on both the front and back, and the back side has room for attachments. Again, like the RT Armor, this armor works well when reversed. One little note is that the shoulders are slightly wide, which may force you to angle weapons with stocks.

Ranger Helmet and Assassin Daggers
Helmet: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01268.jpg
Daggers: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01273.jpg

Both of these items are really cool, and are very similar to Brickforge quality. The helmet kind of gives the forestman kind of look, but its more armored, and in my opinion, has alot of good uses for Fantasy scouts. I bought this helmet in both black and tan and they are worth the pick up. The daggers have more detail than any other fantasy daggers I've seen. The blade is small enough that you can probably use it as a hidden dagger, and unlike most weapons, these daggers have a cool ribbed grip design that still fits in minifig hands. The only downside to the daggers is that minifigs can't reverse grip them because the hilt is too short. Possibly with some modification it could work.

Demon Mail and Schimitar
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01278.jpg
Back: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01280.jpg
Schimitar:http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01283.jpg

Possibly one of the most detailed fantasy armors available, the Demon armor is king for winged warriors. First off, it has a scale mail like design and it also has a very unique shoulder design for minifigs. However, if you look at it correctly, it fits around minifig shoulders. In order to make it more static (because it will be kind of loose) you will want to either put a decal down on the minifig and then put it on OR you can take some decal paper (because there is plenty of white areas from most of Scorp's orders) and place it on the inside of the armor. The Demon mail also has clips on the back allowing for various wing attachments or weapon holsters. This armor does have a matching headgear piece which just looks fierce. As for the Schimitar, it quickly became one of my favorite swords ever. It has a nice curved blade and the hilt of the blade has alot of detail on it. I'd say more but the picture speaks for itself :)

Invader Helm
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01285.jpg

FUS ROH DAH!!! Sorry I had to do that. This helmet is really awesome! The horns are actually removable and can have different items fit into them including wings, strait horns, and various other items. It's a good helmet for barbarians, dragonborns, demons, and other heavily armored (or light armored) minifigs. A quick warning though, this helmet can be a pain to get off of minifigs at times so make sure you give it to the minifig whose face you want to cover up.

Horned Armor
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01286.jpg
Back: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01287.jpg

The Lord of the Rings armor is now an actually armor piece. The horned armor has a good amount of details and it also works very well on the reverse side. The horns on the shoulders are also really cool, making this a good piece of armor for both fantasy and some post-apoc minifigs. The reverse side is primarily blank, but it does leave it open to either being decaled or being modified.

RT Sniper Rifle
Side view 1: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01289.jpg
Side view 2: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01290.jpg

This is a really accurate version of the Gears of War sniper rifle. It has a very detailed barrel and bolt action mechanism. Furthermore, the scope is really neat, and with some painting it could look even better. It fits in minifig hands very well, but you may want to watch using this and the RT Armor together (I believe it should fit though). This rifle is also pretty big, so it could also work well as an anti-material rifle as well. I think it's cool to see that there are now more futuristic sniper rifles making it.

Muscled Cuirass
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01293.jpg
Back: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01294.jpg

Looking for some armor for spartans, then look no further. This armor is absolutely fantastic. It is detailed very well on both the front and the back. Unlike most armors, this armor also has a cape on the back, which is pretty cool as well. Furthermore, it gives your minifgs the image of being muscular warriors... even if their not :P.

Dervish Sword and Scroll
Pic 1: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01295.jpg
Pic 2: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01300.jpg

The Dervish sword is pretty darn cool. I haven't seen too many desert weapons that I like as much as this one. It has a really cool curved blade, a ribbed grip, and a very sleek design. I particuarly like it for making desert raiders or dual wielding blademasters. The scroll offers another writing material for minifigs. The great thing about it is that it is blank which leaves room for decals or paint designs. What could it be, a map? a last will? a message? that ancient guardian scroll that could help you avoid undead warriors? It has a limitless options really.

Jousting helmet, Sea Armor, Xiphos, Tower shield, knee braces
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01301.jpg
Back: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01303.jpg
Tower shield: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01304.jpg
Xiphos: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01305.jpg
Knee Guards: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01306.jpg

Alright so this is the most evil knight out there. First off, the sea armor is reversible and it reminds me more of Roman armor. The rivets in the armor are really cool and you can go with either side to make it look awesome. It fits very well over minifigs and it does not restrict any items. The tower shield is the biggest and badest shield out there. It works well for mystic knights and it has two notches in it for adding spikes or maybe some sweet magic enhancements, or perhaps you are trying to add some gems to make the shield look more flashy. Either way it is freakin awesome. The Xiphos is much bigger than I thought it would be. It is possibly one of the biggest double sided swords I've seen. The hilt isn't ribbed like the others, but it is a huge step up from the standard minifig sword. The jousting helmet is also pretty darn cool as well. Not too much flash about it, but it is also very well designed and has cool details. Lastly, the knee guards are really great. They easily wrap around the minifig legs and the hold place very well. When you initially detach them, make sure to cut them off so there isn't excess hanging on to keep them from fitting the minifig's legs.

Jousting Helmet and Demon Armor ( IN GOLD!!!!!!!) :)
http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01307.jpg

Cestus
Front: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01308.jpg

This one is nice and simple. Fits in minifg hands well and has spikes coming out of it. Great for rogues or cutthroats. Also great for post apoc weaponry.

BONUS STUFF!!!!
First off, I just had to put myself in here
http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01311.jpg
http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01312.jpg
In my hand is the most devastating tool to exist. That is the Spartan Laser, and it was completely worth the $15 price tag. Its triple molded and is really detailed. It has all the little notches in it and it even includes a hole in the from to allow it to fire in MOC's. On my back, more like on my legs, are wings. They have all sorts of uses, but I primarily think of them as the Sonic Boots or Winged Boots of Castlevania HD which increased running speed. Either way, they fit into the minifigs very well and they have an extremely good amount of details in them.

Now onto the unique weaponry.
http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01313.jpg
Here's a group shot.

Mass Effect Sniper Rifle: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01314.jpg

This is a really cool looking weapon. While it doesn't hold the same quality as BrickArms, it does hold very similar quality to Little Armory weapons. I thought that the detail on it was pretty good, and it fits in minifg hands pretty well.

Mass Effect Rifle: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01317.jpg

That's right, you can now go Sheparding across the galaxy :P! This rifle may be slightly inaccurate, but it does have alot of cool little details in it. I think its pretty darn good, good enough to get to be my sci-fi sigfig's main weapon.

Mass Effect Heavy Pistol: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01319.jpg
Fallout 10mm Pistol: http://www.brickshel...gs/dsc01321.jpg

Both of these pistols are also very well detailed and they are really freakin cool.

Not much else for me to say. I have a bunch of other items that I got, but they aren't exactly on minifigs. If you have any questions or C&C feel free to say what you want.

This will most likely be the last thing I post till break :(

Oh well enjoy :)

Sorry for all the links, I don't exactly know what the image tags are/ can't find the place where they are mentioned


#369670 Guildhouse: 4th Floor

Posted by Nightstalker on 03 May 2012 - 03:35 AM

Back to work on my major project now that I'm on break. Anyways, here is the next installment of the guildhouse:

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00765.jpg
Overview of the entire place.

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00767.jpg
The stained glass window. It took me a while to come up with a good design for this, and I was actually short one color so I had to use green too much.

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00768.jpg
Overview of the 4th floor. This floor is separated between the Magic Quarters and the Library

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00771.jpg
Here are the scribe tables in the library. This is where spell scrolls are written and magical documents are deciphered. Note: There are 3 bookshelves in the library and only 6 books at the moment. I have not been able to place an order for the other 119 books needed to fiill the shelves so you'll just have to bear with it unfortunately :(

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00773.jpg
Here is the Librarians desk. Perhaps he and the guildmaster are discussing the cost of those 119 books. Hmm......

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00774.jpg
About those books: Here one of the guild members is going to get a second book

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00777.jpg
Here we have the inscription table in the Magic Quarters. Here is where weapon inscriptions and armor inscriptions are written down.

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00778.jpg
Below the inscription table, are two things: the scroll cabinet and the enchanting shrine. The shrine allows for particular magic gems and spells to be used to enchant armor or weapons.

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00779.jpg
Potion rack: contains health, mana, and stamina potions
The fountain in the center was a gift to the Black Lance Guild from the High Elves of Avaria

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00780.jpg
In this corner, is the inscription well. This is where inscriptions are applied to weapons and gear

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00785.jpg
Here is one of the Quarter's interesting items: THE STORYTELLER ORB!!! It's pretty self explanatory. You can see 3 guild members viewing the orb right now.

http://www.brickshel...se/dsc00786.jpg
Lastly, here is the alchemy table. Next to it is a plant farm and a mushroom farm. The appliance on the table automatically does the work of normal alchemy instruments. However, it is prone to exploding from time to time...

Well that's the fourth floor. C&C welcome as always :)


#299168 New Minifig Decals Poll / Survey

@ Scorp

Guess that explains your huge obsession with Mass Effect. You're the only person on my friend list that has max gamerscore in both games :)


#294637 tongeboysniper1's MOCs and videos 2

Posted by Nightstalker on 18 March 2011 - 08:54 AM

Pretty cool videos :)

Your custom clones are also pretty cool too. Did you use a sharpie or paint to design the camo on trooper's armor?

I gotta hand it to you, those are very accurate drawings of those helmets. :thumbs:


#268513 Should I Buy a PS3?

Posted by Nightstalker on 21 October 2010 - 05:31 AM

Apart from all of the other legitimate reasons stated by everyone else, the PS3 exclusives are also worth it. MGS4, Uncharted, Killzone 2, Infamous, and Little Big Planet are all worth it.
