Here’s some more concept art I did for the Outpost level. This batch is the miners and their contraptions and bugs you might have found in between the town and the mine itself. Some of the miners would have been infected by the Maelstrom they were mining and the ‘Foreman’ was going to be the level boss in his huge drill machine. A more thorough explanation of the level will happen… eventually but hey, here’s some new stuff so huzzah!
Every now and then I like to run a google search on LEGO Universe. Today, I found something quite interesting…

Launcher rotates up and down.
I ordered every part off of BrickLink, some new and some used.
That is all I can think of now. If you have any other questions, please leave them in the comments.
