    Finally had enough time off work to set up my Rohan army in a suitable formation for battle. Now just waiting on Helm's Deep instruction booklet #3 from brickstruct to put the entire project together.

    Just had a fright, the children shout there's a spider on the floor, they come to me expecting me to deal with it even though I really don't like them :( so I get myself together to go deal with it and as I get to it yes it's a lego spider :) the children then complain that lego spiders have too much detail haha think I need to get their glasses checked

    Do you build all through the night? Isn't that a pretty substantial set to finish in a day?:)

    You did the same thing with the MF. Sept. 4: "Just bought the Falcon" Sept. 5 "Admiring my new MF".

    Haha, I legitimately did! The MF was built the night I purchased it.

    The Tower Bridge...woof. I sorted the pieces and did about half of Book #1 the night I bought it, then started building the next morning around 7am (I'm an early riser...). Finished the build by mid afternoon. 

    Tower Bridge is the most fun I've had with Lego since I was a kid, though. Pretty rewarding to see all of those pieces come together.

    Clearing shelf space and organizing Lego. Collapsing and storing boxes, organizing sets into ziplock bags and bins. Keeping Lego organized is a whole hobby in itself!

    ^  All that for a FOLDED poster?

    You should keep the box.  I reckon you could fit a whole mess of heads in there.  Or a whole person.

    Or you could sell it to @Farmer_John for like $25.00...

    Wow, that eye-candy makes me almost drool! Your Rohirrim army is huge. You must have done a lot of Bricklinking, or bought a truck load of #9471 sets to amass that many mini-figures. Totally epic! 42 archers; a phalanx of another 42 footsoldiers, and 21 horsemen.

    You better have quadruple the number of Orcs & Uruk-hai to match your Rohirrim!?
    There is always something fascinating about seeing a fully armed and equipped minifig army, especially when they are all posed in a MOC'ed landscape, travelling or engaging another army in the field or at some caste siege or tournament. Be sure to post some more pictures will you when you place them all in a MOC?! I'd love to see that!

    I bet pretty soon pictures will start to emerge of people showing similar amounts of TFA SW first order Imperial (would they still be called Imperials?!) troops and what not.

    In the mean while my own Lego activities are primarily focussed on (still) taking sets apart and putting them in Zip-lock baggies. Not much building going on lately.

    @samiam391. Buy another 42 horses and mount the infantry, then your Rohan army will be perfect.
    You do not even have to colour match the horses. Commanders could ride White or Black horses and the other cavalry can have plain brown or black horses. 
    I look forward to the day when I can display my own army, sallying forth from a Helms Deep MOC.

    Sig Fig - 500 Flickr Followers Special

    Sig Fig - 500 Flickr Followers Special

    Today I have finally reached 500 followers on Flickr, and the fact the 500th follower happens to be the extremely talented Nannan Z. is awesome! I'll like to thank everyone who has favourited, commented and shared my work; without that I wouldn't have lasted this long and hope it continues as we progress into future :)

    I have been uploading photos daily and I have finally come to see that it's over saturating my creativity and it's becoming less exciting. From now on I'll commit to at least one photograph, MOC or graphic a week. That way I can spend more time on other commitments and it will allow my work to have much better quality which is better than quantity.

    I first joined Flickr to upload a portfolio as requested by one the universities in January 2014, I didn't get into that university and instead went to Middlesex University (Hendon Campus) where I have completed my first year studying BA Product Design. I didn't avidly use Flickr until Summer 2014 when I entered the 'Neo-Classic Space MOC Contest' on Brickset Forum to produce a Classic Space MOC under 338 pieces. From that contest I created several MOC's which got me really engaged in MOC building and pushed me to create some pretty awesome MOC's which progressed to my recent photography which allowed me to present my MOC's in a professional and unique manner.

    After building my star destroyer last week the wife just pulled my republic gunship from my build pile and cracked it open. She may be my wife and mother of my children but there are limits. For reference that limit is Slave 1! On the positive side I tested my mk2s power functions with no gear crunches.

    @TheBigLegoski - I'm set on the Uruk Hai with well over 600. I'll definitely need to set both armies up together as if they are in battle! 

    @Venunder - I agree, something I'll need to look into. Although, when they are setup on Helm's Deep most won't be on horses.

    Was it your bank manager? But yeah not good. I am sort of glad I don't have anyone able to pass judgement on whether I have too much Lego or not.

    Im in a destructive mood.  I will be disassembling all of the Creator Houses this weekend in order to make room for my Modulars.  I have all except the Detective office to display.  It should be a fun weekend!  I'll have photos of the process as i go.
  • nexandernexander Glasgow Member Posts: 882
    Not the bank manager but close, the wife! Has a slip from the postie saying 4 parcels were too big to fit through the door. she hadn't ordered anything and I get everything delivered to work. Turns out I had one Lego related item due but 4 were sent! Best of all they do fit through the letterbox but she had to collect them, hence her being a bit peeved. After explaining there was an error and I didn't order 4 all was good, until the next time anyway.

    The family Lego collection just exploded:
    #60097, #60090, #60091, #60092, #60093, #60095, #60077, #60078, #60079, #60080, #70411, #70412, #75900, #75901 & #75903.
    #10687 for little Mr six.
    #10582, #10590, #10592 & #10601 for little Mr not yet two.
    #41054, #41062, #41075 & #41077 for the wife, but nothing for me today.

    My only annoyance, its the first day that Big W has had the Scooby-Doo sets (the only local retailer that has them so far) & some complete frakker was going from store to store cleaning them out of every #75904 & #75902 (staff members at three stores were obliging enough to get the extras from the back dock, because he mentioned he 'has a big family & all their kids will want one' one of them was so proud of his efforts to help this poor fellow).

    Would love to add more but, in a couple of weeks it will be disassembled so I can use some of the parts to build 10143. I am hoping when I have finished my current builds to have a go at building a more screen accurate version of the SSD with a better underside.

    As I'm building MOC's in my room my four year old brother comes and joins me.

    He builds his own stuff so here are some of his best creations over the past few months. I didn't help or give any import; it's all his own interdependent work :)

    I know the feeling. I don't moc yet some of the stuff my 2 sons make are totally out the box thinking. I have been thinking of starting a kiddie moc thread. Not in a 'look how clever my kid is' competition but more of a tapping into the imagination and unrestricted creativity kids have. My 5 year old made a 'weapon' for his warrior. It consists of a lightsaber hilt, 3 of the 3 thin leaf foliage pieces finished with a technic pin and mace. Apart from the green colour, looks quite deadly!

    I found them much easier to store on the strips like that. I felt them all out and put my number stickers on them and hung them on the end of one of my storage racks up and out of the way.

    My status (for the past week, and I imagine quite a few more to come) is simply...
    "The sorting! My god, the sorting! How can there still physically be more to sort? Where are these pieces coming from, are they breeding? So much sorting. What? A megablock brick? WHY?!"

    @Kavster - I've been doing a lot of sorting lately, buy I've worked out quite a good system and actually find it quite relaxing....then again I know I absolutely will not find any Megabloks bricks in my collection, so don't have to deal with that mental trauma ;-)
