Even ignoring some of the more expensive units, building an army is a proposition that’s going to cost you a pretty penny. Setting aside all the price stuff however, it’s just hard not to be impressed by the clear amount of work and attention to detail that was put into this build.
Take a look at it and let us know what you think. No replacement for the actual models for me, but you have to appreciate the work that went into that. When was the last time you priced 40k stuff?
Even within boxes the tolerances swing wildly from good to horrid.It makes the battle look a lot nicer then a card stock token does. Similar in power, but packed with fury and anger, with thousand-years experience, the. .. Stewart says the figures on the left and right are meant to be marines, with each carrying a hand weapon and a projectile weapon. And if just enough time, skill, and maybe a pint of promethium, you might up with something like this. It isnt entirely out of the question, either.
I for example have two left hands and therefore my miniatures were always ugly.

Not to forget that everyone could build them, including children, and do not need much skill. In other words, the trademarks should not be emphasized or highlighted. If you’re going to be pedantic, you gotta back it up with authority. It’s a shame there was never an official crossover between the two companies. We’ll show you all the aspects of the hobby from converting and painting models to actually playing the game. That being the case, it’s understandably served as the fodder for some fairly brilliant tributes over the years. His “reimagined” set includes a variety of soldiers and vehicles, including his own personal take on the space marine, mech suits, some nifty looking tanks and even some orc baddies for them to fight against.
I love all of the little details, the barrels of the lascannons, the triple lights/smoke launchers on top of the treads–there’s a lot that goes into this build. Maybe in a combination with actual models for infantry. What makes you not want to play against it?
As cool as the lego models look, they would stand out like a sore thumb.
You can clearly tell that it is just lego. But if you built two armies, and a playing field in lego, perhaps. Swap out weapons and tweak the model, change their stance, swap out some blocks. In that case you aren’t even consistent within the army.
I love seeing conversions on the tables (for example heavily converted orks armies) but i wouldn’t play against legos. If it was an army that you had, and sometimes pulled out as a joke (but played with)?
Honestly, if you find a games workshop or local store, it’s the best idea to ask those people personally. They are the people you are going to be playing against. This stuff is super fun to look at and maybe one-off play, but it is the problem of being interested in 2 hobbies that you really like, is that they aren’t compatible all the time.
I wish you the best of luck with your hobbies!
It looks awesome, but she was really hesitant about bringing any of it. If you were a teenager and couldn’t afford it, cool!
If you’re still supporting the hobby and have some lego/papercraft/wtf stuff?

For me/us it’s about the fun of it, not waac or making everything perfect. Hopefully you’ve got a good local crew that play for the fun of it. In the end we all love playing with these models, and no matter how expensive and detailed they get, they’re still toys. Looks interesting, far better than a sea of unpainted grey plastic. Must go looking to see if there is instructions floating around. Based would be a whole deal, it would be harder to stand your infantry up. If rather everyone be using 40k-esque models. If you were a regular opponent and wanted to try out a unit or two before putting the cash down then fine, but not an entire army. These lego models costs more than the respective 40k model so that wouldn’t make much sense. But that is probably a different scenario. If you are a lego fan you use lego because you like lego, not because you are short on cash.
The visuals are a big party of the hobby for me, nothing like two well painted armies lining up. Without people going in and buying models and supplies, there is no hobby for us all to participate in. It puts me at ~750 points, still wondering what to buy for the other 250 for a 1k army. All these miniatures are created by the individual sculptors with almost unchanged original parts. Titan will cost you no less than his official counterpart.
