Living in the post apocalypse can be surprisingly comfortable. This reclaimed gas station is home to a small group of survivors who are just making day-to-day. This Lego creation called “Gas Station” has been built by hellboy.lego. Built as an entry into the Vignweek 2020 challenge. This post apocalyptic Gas Station features a small rural style station that has been turned into an outpost/watchtower. It welcomes nobody, with its multitude of Never Stop signs (from the Lego Move 2 sets) mixed in with a bunch of Nuclear Fallout signs. Everything here is Lego, no custom pieces. The soda vending machine, the old classic car, and the EAT sign are all great details that bring a lot of personality to the build. There is even a cute rubber ducky hiding out! Did the survivors get the RV and car up on the roof, or did the nuclear explosion?
In the Guilds of Historica the northern guild of Mitgardia rules over cold and harsh lands. Mitgardia has a series of fortifications to provide safety to travelers. This Lego MOC called the “Kiruna Watchtower” is created by Andreas Lenander. Set in the Historica project, which is a collection of fantasy themed Lego creations working towards creating a fictional world full of lore and adventure. This Lego Watchtower has been built as an entry into the Summer Joust. There are a lot of interesting techniques and details on show. The frozen river and snow break out from the base, a great way to communicate how wild and uncontrollable the environment is. The wooden pier is a great mini build as are the various pine trees. The tower itself is a good example of using texture to increase the detail of Lego. The brick patterned 1×2 pieces can look fake when too many are lined up, which has been avoided by adding in some green details.
