Re: Tips for building armies

Are you thinking at any point of having two army’s of opposing forces? If so you might want to consider that now. It might make ordering cheaper per unit. Also historically there are many battles with a well orgained coordinated army on one side and a bunch of misfits on the other. So when placing a...

Re: BrickCan AFOL Newbie - Any tips?

Stay late In the evenings. Quite a lots of fun stuff not shown in the schedule goes on.

Trade the parts you get in your bag. This is a good way to get some useful parts but also a good way to meet others.

I have built a streetcar using the parts I have in order to get a working design. What I need to do now is order the parts of the correct colour from BrickLink. I was wondering what the most effect way of going from a physical build to a BrickLink wanted list is. Wilf suggested using LLD, unfortunat...

Re: Dark Green slopes needed

If they are the darkest green, which I think is called Earth Green and you have two spare, I would be interested in buying them off you for my tank engine.

Re: Want to Trade: Deep Freeze Defender 6973

That was the last set I bought before my dark ages. When I went back to the UK in 2015 I could find no trace of it, I presume my brother had it away. I'll think about your trade proposition (I was planning to get the bus station too!)

Re: 2017 Sets Discussion

I'm hoping for some animals and some ruined temples in the Jungle.

The winter sports theme for friends might convince me to finally getting a friends set. Though I really don't like the mini-dolls.

Re: 10254 Winter Holiday Train

I was really looking forwards to this, but seeing it am a little disappointed by the lack of realism in the locomotive. It really could have done with a couple of extra wheels or a different design (as a tank engine maybe to keep the cost down). I'm also not keen on colors, too much of the brighter ...

Looking for a Tan base plate

Does anyone have a spare tan base plate?

I know you can get them in the store, but I was wondering if anyone has a second hand one that they don't need.

Since it seems everyone's collection grows. Does anyone have any spare/old storage cases for a small-medium sized collection that they don't need anymore?
