Principality of Neutral Dnieperland

Postby Atavism » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:11 pm

Did frames exist in Pre-Solar Calendar days? Maybe? Probably! Historians disagree on what qualified as the first frame, be it Archimedes' (mythical?) "Colossus of Sparta" or Eli Whitney's unnamed and un-patented harvest-man. What they do agree upon, is that they changed the face of war forever!

There was a time before the Trans-European Hegemony when the subcontinent was an almost incomprehensible mosaic of warring states. Borders shifted constantly as nations flickered into and out of existence. Revolutions, coups, and conquest all threatened stability of civilization itself.

Here, preserved surprisingly well thanks to finds from an ancient bunker, are some of the forces deployed by Neutral Dnieperland. Once Greater Dnieperland, the monarchy found themselves trapped in an escalating civil war between Fascist and Communist parties within their kingdom. Having seen the results of such unrest in France and Russia, the royal family of Dnieperland did the sensible thing- they raided the state's treasury along with the very pro-monarchy army and fled to the mountains. There they established the microstate of Neutral Dnieperland, which lasted a surprisingly long time on a diet of foreign investment and occasional mercenary employment.

Glad you like 'em! :D

And the Slepnir is pretty much a 'roided out Twank, or at least it uses almost all the same architectural tricks but for better legs.

They are a legit piece. They are reindeer faces from the Santa's Workshop set a few years ago.

:shock: Wow! These are amazing! I mean out of the ballpark amazing! I love each one of these designs. There is some serious craftsmanship in all of these.

The Tank Walker: The angled cannon is gorgeous, the legs and body style, superb!
B2-rB: What can be said, I'm speechless, those are the coolest legs and feet, the body style and color coordination, fantastic
G0-r1: This looks tough, solid, you don't want to mess with it. the way you designed it is just superb, it comes together so well, and is such a rocking design
Slepnir: Awesome, just so cool, it does resemble a 'roiled out Twank, and turns out that looks fantastic, also love the hint of contrasting green in the "eye".
Hard suits: Are just stunning...stunning.

What amazes me is that all of these have a simple yet realistic look to them. I view that as being one of the hardest things to do with Lego designs, the smaller it is, the more simple it is, the harder to make it detailed and realistic. You, have mastered that. You have been able to construct a piece that, in itself is relatively small, yet the detail, and significant amount of craftsmanship that goes into them, continues to amaze me. These are works of art.

This is some of the top work I have seen yet in the community, right up there with the greats in my opinion. Stellar Job! I look forward to what comes next. :D


Would love to see these and the Iron Walkers on the battle field together. ;)

Thank you so very much. I am of course glad to impress, and I appreciate you leaving me such a detailed (and of course, glowing) review!

As for your Iron Walkers, I actually kind of want to take a swing at some sort of super-Heinrich for these guys, we'll have to see what I actually get around to though! :?

Man..... I don't know where to start :D

Suberb! Very clean and smooth design, with detail. The pilots with the mustache, and oversized hats are pure genius and are the cherry on top of the whole feel, concept, and design. The blend of colors with the way you included the one dark red side with the gold is magnificent. That scout jeep is so cool. Really cool use of pieces for the "smoke" too. The more I look at it the more I think what a amazingly awesome collection of frames this forum has. Again, some of my favorite work from you. Keep it up! :)
