When Pigs Fly!

Postby AK_Brickster » Mon Apr 15, 2013 5:35 am

Well, as some of you may know, the theme for BrickCon 2013 is "Pigs vs. Cows".

I thought it would be neat to have an army of winged pigs, because - let's face it - a battle between pigs and cows will probably happen "when pigs fly"!

After a few ritual sacrifices of megabloks to the Lego gods, I closed my eyes and revved my drill. The result is as follows:

I think it turned out quite nicely. C & C appreciated :)

Looks sweet, but I still feel like crying for the poor pigs. :cry: :lol:

So you will only mod your lego when pigs fly?

That's correct, Steve! ;)

Now that I know how good it looks, for the rest of my army, I'm going to get some Brick Forge pigs to do the modifications on. I'll feel a lot less guilty that way (plus they are a lot cheaper than Lego pigs).

Poor piggy! Okay that's the purist in me speaking. I could never drill a piggy like that.

But...it does look good.

But poor piggy he will never be the same!

Thanks, Blue!

Don't worry, the rest of the piggy air force will be composed of BF pigs. Maybe this guy will just have to be the leader :)

This is a really delicious good looking pig. I might have an idea how to keep the pigs unharmed with almost the same result. I will make a prototype this evening.

Well, after seeing Ben's version, I knew I had to let my piggy fly freely among the clouds as well....
