The Panther, a jeep produced by Bricknave Industries, is suitable for three and can be equipped with an artillery cannon. It is primarily for light attacks and scouting missions.

LCC: An Explosive Getaway


LCC: An Explosive Getaway
Originally uploaded by Bricknave

Built for Category B of the fifth global challenge of Lands of Classic Castle!

Story:

With Roawia united under one banner for the time being, nefarious outlaw Captain Claw faces his greatest challenge yet: running away from the law.

Regime troops pound away at the door of his soon-to-be-abandoned hideout. A day earlier, his crew sold the furniture and stashed away the income in the Obsidian Seawing. The Captain stayed behind to make sure his old home (and some invading troops) went out with a bang.

Going Coastal


Going Coastal
Originally uploaded by Bricknave

As contracted by Loreesi hero Mark of Falworth, the Outlaw Captain Claw and his crew "visits" the Lenfald coast, specifically an unsuspecting village close to the shore. Two Outlaws tagged along as unofficial members of Claw's crew: blade-wielding brawler Lute the Brute and crossbow-wielding archer Arrowhead.
The village is by no means defenseless: After the Obsidian Seawing arrived, a group of Lenfaldi sentinels sprung into action.

(LCC GC4) Defending the Outlaws' Lair!


(LCC GC4) Defending the Outlaws' Lair!
Originally uploaded by Bricknave

My assignment was this splendid MOC by gid617. My take focuses on the fort more, with a different batch of Loreo troops continuing the assault.

Captain Claw's Log:
"Before headin' off to visit a specific coast, we went to the Outlaws' Lair to look for potential
interns, so we could have extra hands and keep Mark's gold for ourselves! Then, Loreo troops who weren't commanded by Mark attacked! We decided to have some fun and defend the place. Lady Drake pushed a Loreo latter off the wall, and the guy climbing it was almost done! It was funny! Longbow was checking out a guy archer, Gargon was sparrin' with a Loreo knight, and this brute named Lute poured hot tar on this Loreo guy. Our Dwarf friend was guardin' the ship, so he sadly couldn't take part in the fun."

Via Flickr:
There is an opinion that instructions stifle creativity. It's not like the instructions are forcing kids to not build freely. When I was younger, I knew I didn't have to follow the instructions.

Also, it's not like all LEGO sets are X-Wings and Star Destroyers; even with those, you can still rebuild an X-Wing into anything you want!

There are plenty of buckets filled with assorted LEGO bricks which don't have instructions ;-)

The Slithering Sewer Naga Battle


The Slithering Sewer Naga Battle
Originally uploaded by Bricknave

Via Flickr:
Decades ago in a land of sword and sorcery, a Snake Cult conducted secret ceremonies in the darkness of a sewer. Time has passed and the Snake

Cult has lost its popularity, but creatures conjured from rituals still lurk in the sewer, guarding the many stolen treasures

snake-worshippers gave as offerings. The snake-worshippers also brought in plenty of foreign snake-species into the sewer.

Local residents refer to the sewer as the "Slithering Sewer", and are oftentimes paranoid about serpents invading their homes via the plumbing.
