The platform

    Newer Older

    It is a nice looking technique that uses many, yet easy to find bricks to achieve a rounded effect.

    You need:

    -headlight bricks
    -1x1 round bricks, for support
    -any smooth 1x1 brick (cone, round, normal, headlight...)
    -something to SNOT the SNOT (technic pins work, but the numbers get really ugly that way)
    -some 1xX bricks to give the tower/platform some length in the Y dimension
    -a lot of 2x2 tiles in primary colour
    -(optional) some 1x2 tiles in primary colour and some in a secondary colour, to break up the monotone wall (note that secondary colours are used mostly to add detail to smooth surfaces, our example has accents because it is a part of a castle with some smooth walls, not because it would "need" them)
    -A monthly supply of tranquilizers

      interesting, though it looks rather fragile.

      Hence the tranquilizers.
