Guan Yu versus Yan Liang in Bricks!

Unread postby Kardios » Wed Sep 18, 2013 2:59 pm

Check out on YouTube my latest stop motion animation, or "brickfilm" based on Romance of Three Kingdoms.

China, 200 AD during the last years of the Han Dynasty. Northern China is engulfed in blood as rival warlords Cao Cao and Yuan Shao contend for supremacy. Yuan Shao sends his top general, the mighty Yan Liang, to attack the strategic city of Baima with 100,000 soldiers. Anxious to relieve Baima, Cao Cao decides to enlist the services of Guan Yu, wielder of the Green Dragon Crescent Blade. Will Guan Yu defeat Yan Liang? Witness another legendary feat of arms by the God of War!

I really enjoyed this video. I was just in a Lego store and have been reminded of my love for Legos.

I found the dialogue in this one very amusing. Especially "No joking is allowed in the army!"

It has been a while since I lego'd but isn't there a really good beard piece you can use? Go search!

Yeah, a longer beard would be nice. There are some in the Lord of the Rings - Lego Collection. (Gandalf's Beard for instance)
Like those one, only in black:

Thanks for the feedback. This is hopefully one step closer to the "Marquis with the Magnificent Beard".
