A colourful world
Bricks issue 14 delivers the indispensable guide to the world of LEGO colours
The range of LEGO colours available delights most fans, providing us with a near-infinite choice of ways to style and theme our creations. We have never had it so good when it comes to a pallete of shades and hues, infact the choice can sometimes feel overwhelming. Well fear as Bricks is on hand to guide you through the world of colour.
Bricks have rallied some of the LEGO world’s leading experts and pooled their resources to provide you with an indispensable guide to colour. There is everything from a history of LEGO colours, which includes the full spectrum of what was available and when, to a custom LEGO colour wheel to help you choose complimentary or contrasting schemes for your build. There is also a look at the science of colour through the eyes of Tom Alphin and Lucy Boughton considers the many colours of minifigures. There has been no Stone Grey left unturned and the team has pulled together one of the most thorough guides to LEGO colours to date.
Moving on to models, we step into the colourful world of the Friends amusement park range; a summer wave that is not only full of details and playability but has spawned some great new pieces. Keeping things bright, Tim Goddard brings bold colours to his microscale spaceships and we even jump on board the mining ship Red Dwarf.
In addition Bricks catches up with LEGO Product Designer Justin Ramsden, 18 months after his successful job application which was followed by The Secret World of LEGO documentary last year. Swebrick’s LDD instruction master Anders Horvath gives a tutorial before our build experts, James Pegrum and Luke Hutchinson, provide another healthy dose of how-tos. This month we also launch our new technique series from Li Li and his blog, MOC Recipes. He starts the series with a thorough rundown of SNOT pieces and their uses.
There is all this and much, much more including masterclasses, reviews, news and products. I hope you enjoy the issue as I really feel we have, once again, raised the bar in the world of LEGO entertainment.
With 124 pages packed full of inspirational models and exclusive features Bricks is the premier LEGO fan magazine. With a price of just £4.99, why accept anything less?
