LEGO Thursday: Spear of Hades, Corvette

Still sticking with micro-scale ships I give you this corvette class vessel. Corvettes, historically, are small, maneuverable, lightly armed warships, smaller than a frigate but larger than a coastal patrol craft. If it had a little more meat on its bones it might have qualified for being a frigate. These are still great ships to serve on, especially if you crave action since they see the lion's share of small-scale combat in addition to larger fleet actions.

Top-down view, I like asymmetrical weapon arrays

What do our neighbors think? They see us outside spray-painting stuff, but they don't realize it's little tiny men or robots or monsters or whatever. We have a crowd of cars on any given Saturday night like we're having a party, or a poker night, but that couldn't be farther from what we're actually doing. Grown men holding up little spaceships made from LEGO blocks in the air to take artsy photos of them, its kind of humorous to me.

Here's a closeup of the Spear of Hades refueling from last week


  1. Great model!

    You have the most outrageous pimpin' gemer lifestyle. I just listened to the podcast you did where you play 3:16 and biscuit shows up late, bursting out of the sand. Awesome.

  2. Thanks SJ! I really like the wasp-waistedness of this particular one. It was a fun build and simple enough to pull off a an escort full of them if need be.

    Glad you're listening to the show, just because of the heavy language and such I try to keep the two entities separate (nary a curse word here at Mik's Minis!) but both endeavors are a lot of fun. 3:16 is a great game too.
