Dave Lartigue assaults the Necromancer’s Tower

When the dead rise from their graves to destroy the living, dark magic must be afoot (or it’s the solanum virus, but that’s a different story). Dave Lartigue illustrates one such incident in his “Assault on the Necromancer’s Tower” diorama. Here’s the tower:

Villagers fight back!

There’s lots more to see in Dave Lartigue’s photostream on Flickr.

Joriel Jimenez’s Commonwealth Peacekeeping Forces

Joriel “Joz” Jimenez (MOCPages) has been hard at work updating his Flickr photostream lately. I keep bookmarking stuff to blog, and then he posts something even cooler.

With squad after squad of great minifigs, Joz is clearly a man after my own heart. Unlike too many “army builders,” he peppers his multitudes with unique units like this pair of “Jump Jet Instructors”:

The lettering is perfect! Ralph’s modular house would make an excellent addition to any city street.
