Re: Suggestions for Microscale

I would suggest checking out the Microscale builds in the community display box at the Lego Store at Oakridge mall. Everything in their represents a local landmark, and all were build by VLC members. :) Yes I was around for that, very nice display. :p Thanks for the suggestions guys! I will fiddle ...

Suggestions for Microscale

I want to try building in microscale but I've never done so before and it is quite challenging. What suggestions do you guys have on starting off? For example how to pick the scale [of microscale] and how to envision the build. Thanks!!!

Re: Fan recreates Stephanie's X-Wing

I think it would have been cool if they altered it a bit from your version (eg. different engine that was silver instead) but the nose addition is nice. Congrats on having your own fanbase :)

Re: Tips for building armies

Yup, thanks for the suggestion. I am planning to have one "full" army and a second not full army but a few different units from another army. This is so that I can have one army attacking a castle and the castle can have some defenders. Having one army attacking and no one defending is not...

Thanks for the replies guys! Amassing a large collection and hoping it comes together hasn't worked for me, if it had I wouldn't be asking this! :lol: I've decided to pick several torsos and just stick with them.

Tips for building armies

For many years now I have been trying to amass an army of knights and other types of soldiers (roughly trying to create an "army" of around 30 figs)but have been unable to do so, partially because I don't know what I'm doing and partially because straight out buying them seems very costly....

Looking for trans- plates

Hello,

I am looking for trans- plates in sizes that are at least 2x4 or bigger (bigger is better). Trans-clear, trans-yellow, and trans-red will work. Will consider trans-blue as well. Quantity depends on size of plate. Can buy or trade. Thanks!
