Posted by Nightstalker on 08 August 2019 - 06:59 PM

That barrel design is nice! I also love the angled armor on the front!

Man this is some Brickmania level stuff! Keep it up!

Yep ACPin is still creating these days! That samurai army and all of the flowers are his.

Fun fact, those flowers were featured in the LEGO house in Denmark!

Alright, with BFVA2019 out of the way, expect to see a post up relatively soon (like soon being the next 2 weeks or so).




#488852 BrickFair Virginia 2019 Review - PICTURE HEAVY!

Posted by Nightstalker on 06 August 2019 - 08:35 AM

Another BrickFair has passed, which means it's time to rant about it!

 

First off, before moving onto several amazing MOCs, huge thanks to Dalton for coming out to visit! It is always a pleasure to attach an online name to a face and an actual name (also, thanks for the artwork). For those that live in the DMV area, you'll have yet another shot to visit next year at BFVA 2020! 

 

Anyways, onto the builds!

Whew!

 

With that out of the way, my favorite MOC definitely goes to Deep Space 9. That thing almost stood 6 feet tall, and had a diameter of about 6 feet as well. It also has LEDs inside, allowing it to light up.

 

This year, I also had the pleasure of receiving my first nomination for Best Castle/Knights. I was also extremely happy to see that one of my fellow castle builders finally got a Brickee for Best Castle/Knights. Honestly, he did an awesome job with his build:

As for swag, well... there isn't much to show off really! Most of the unreleased BW stuff I already own and have showed off before (I think). I also finally got my hands on several overmolded BrickArms prototypes including the Bone-Jack Tri-Barrel Shotgun, M27 IAR, Maulers from Halo 3, modcom UCS MK2, and a laser cannon (can't remember the official name, but I know it can no longer be created because the mold broke).

 

I'll probably have a separate topic fully detailing my thoughts on those.

 

So how was BrickFair overall? Pretty good!

 

We had quite the decent turn out and we appeared to have way more space for most of the displays. The castle location kind of sucked since we were the only theme shoved in the market place, but hey, every year, someone has to have a crappy spot! The builds were high quality, and a lot of folks came up with some super creative stuff. I even got a new idea, which will be next BFVA's build. 

 

Anywho, I should probably get back to work since I am writing this from my half a cubicle. I might post some additional thoughts later. Stay tuned for that Unreleased/Proto post (probably shove it in the minifig topic of mine) one of these days.

 

Until then, I'm out!

<Story coming at some point>

 

I GOT NOMINATED FOR BEST CASTLE/KNIGHTS!!! So...uh... yeah...

 

This is the final build... featuring Sir Tom Drake and Lady Severina Kallistos. They're about the only two that fit in with the Ankoran army. They're both in here fighting alongside various Ankorans, who clearly aren't too good utilizing Dwarven technology. Guess someone has to bail them out.

 

I'm tired right now and not thinking straight. I'll talk about BFVA2019 as a whole later.

 

Nighty night...

Honestly, Behemoth ain't too bad. It can be super stressful if your party plays too aggressive.

Support Healer and a Tank make it way more bearable.

Extremoth (Extreme Behemoth) has finally been defeated! Love that sweet, sweet Layered Drachen Armor!




#488829 Brickfair Virginia 2019: One More Battle

Posted by Nightstalker on 25 July 2019 - 02:35 PM

Final order was received today after the seller sent it to the wrong person!

 

The altar will be constructed tomorrow as well as some last minute additions. I'll probably show off the details tomorrow, but you won't see everything together until sometime next week!

 

Also, Tom Drake might have another fellow knight assisting him. We'll see (it entirely depends on me remembering to grab said knight from my office on Monday)...

#488820 Brickfair Virginia 2019: One More Battle

Posted by Nightstalker on 20 July 2019 - 02:32 PM

More progress!

 

Added two obelisks, six sacrifice altars, and barricades.

48332716857_09a4821d86_z.jpg

48332716822_89fdc734a4_z.jpg

 

Sooo...

 

Additional things that need to be mentioned.

1) Two organ guns will be added to the main display. One will be destroyed by vines which were created by orc shamans.

2) Still waiting on supply boxes and crates for the orc camp.

3) Orc banners have been created.

4) Still waiting on the parts to build the main altar. A small setback happened this week where I received the wrong order; with any luck, I should get that order sometime this week.

5) Shamans are 50% done.

6) Blood collection begins this week as well.

 

That's about it for now. I'll probably have one, maybe two more updates before BFVA2019.

Posted by Nightstalker on 14 July 2019 - 05:46 AM

At least half of the minifigs are brand new (130). Most parts are reused from previous builds except for the baseplates, some dark tan plates, and most of the light bley.

DoD work keeps me well supplied! :)


#488797 Brickfair Virginia 2019: One More Battle

Posted by Nightstalker on 12 July 2019 - 01:17 PM

Terrain and wall update!

 

Still missing tiles for the wall, but other than that, the wall is basically done. Additional decorations are on their way, and work on the temple grounds commences next week.
