If you’ve studied antiquity or maybe just seen the film 300, you are familiar with the story of the Battle of Thermopylae, where a small collection of highly trained Spartans defended the “Gates of Hell” against an overwhelming Persian force. Letranger Absurde has created a cute little vignette featuring the shields of at least 50 battle hardened Spartans forming a protective dome or tortoise formation. I love how the simplicity of the colours juxtaposes the textures of the shields and rocks. A cracking little build.
There is something about this cute collection of LEGO bricks by P. B. that makes me grin. “King and His Guards” is a simple troop of miniature, chess-like cannon fodder with overseeing gentry and cool bipedal heavy-artillery. It could be the chihuahua looking like a great dane next to our heavily mustachioed king, or his men all assembled with a small number of bricks, yet they all appearing to have their own personalities. Or it could simply be I love the walking tank — whatever the reason, I hope it makes you grin too.
