Lego Tribe: Outpost!

Ladies and Gents, here I present my submission to Lego Ideas for a modular playset featuring around the defence of a tribal fortification. Taking inspiration from Brittanic and Celtic tribesmen and their struggles with an occupational force.

This set focuses on the whole outpost with a view for potentially unlimited combinations for continued enjoyment. With the modular design, all pieces will fit together, so the fort could be split, and have two warring factions, or a section of and outer and inner defensive wall.

As lego is more than just a building to a strict pre-set design, the construction of the walls is designed so that they can be changed, re-designed and made personal. The corner sections, for example, can also be converted to a straight, using exactly the same brick pieces.

This makes the Lego Tribe: Outpost one of the more personal and self creative modular designs out there. You can literally redesign it how you want. 

This set includes:

  • 1no Gatehouse, featuring double opening doors and a hinged walkway for ease of access and playing within the main gated arch. From the two flank platforms, defending archers have access to shoot through the two murder holes should the gates be breached.
  • 2no Straight Wall sections, including spare spear and shield for use by the defending force.
  • 1no Staircase Section, with raised defensive platform, and a hinged staircase, for storing the Tribe's treasure and spare weapons.
  • 4no Corner sections, with large defensive platforms, and weapons/ armour rooms at ground level. This can be accessed easily for playability via the hinged platforms.
  • 2no 1/2 defensive picket lines, able to be connected to create a single line, for use by the defensive force either inside the gate to break any charge and hold an attacking force in the gate arches, or to disrupt access to the closed gates.
  • 2no battle/warning standards, featuring the helms of the occupying force.
  • 2no battle standards featuring the wings of the crow
  • 2no tribal standards featuring the wings of the crow and a large banner, with the idea being the wing of the crow being able to be added by decal.
  • 2no weapon racks, holding spare spears and shields
  • 5no modular supplies and storage tiles, which can be grouped together to form one piece, or scattered throughout the Outpost.
  • 4no Barrack Tents, each with various items resting outside, and a bunk-bed within. The pitched panels come off easily for positioning of troops when it is there turn to rest before watches, or perhaps as they slumber during an ambush.
  • 1no Tribal Chief tent, featuring his luxury bed and storage, as well as decorative banners to the front. The pitched panels come off easily for positioning of troops when it is there turn to rest before watches, or perhaps as they slumber during an ambush.
  • 1no Set of tribal rangers, wearing the hoods and capes, providing light infantry and ranged troops for the defending force.
  • 1no Set of heavy infantry, varying in age and appearance. In this tribe, once a man comes of age, he is trained in the art of warfare.
  • 1no Set of heavy berserkers, armed with a variety of weapons and the shields of their fallen foes.
  • 1no Tribal chief, wealding a large double-headed war axe and sword.
  • 1no Tribal sear, bearing the staff and symbol of the Tribe, the Crow.

Personally, I think this would be an awesome set to go alongside (or more like fight against) the Lego Castle series. Adding further historical lego figures and styles to the great range already.
