That does look nice and easy. It really just depends on the resources of who's playing. I would like to try Magnus's system, too, for the trenches and things like that.

@Silent:

I like your ideas but covering a baseplate with a layer of bricks seems to be a rather redundant waste of parts. The style in OP has the ground level as just a normal baseplate... The idea was to come up with a standard height for baseplates with terrain to meet eachother at, which was 10 plates high. I think it might be best if we conform to the standards in OP because they won't use so many parts.

That is a lot of green bricks.

With baseplates being the base level, people who DON'T have a lot of bricks and plates can build just basic level, too. People with a few can make a concave slope (baseplate level on two sides, slopes on the other two).

I know I've always wanted to play on those awesome battlefields from Lego conventions and this is an easier way.

Even just two people making two plates each, or four 32x32 plates and a 16x32 plate.

Also, this is just an idea for what some people could do. It would make for a beautiful battlefield to fight on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Just to put it simply the scale of the armies people may be bringing to either battle would be huge. It would be lots of medium sized armies. if we get picky on terrain then we might have trouble fitting armies on a board. I think that building brick roads is a waste of time because you can buy ready ones cheap as chips. I'm not saying an ugly battlefield is fine, but being picky may limit us on battlefield set-up.

Again, this is for people who have the resources to do it. It's not going to be the Brikwars standard, but it would be fun to try once or twice.

If you want to have basic Lego road plates, that's fine. They fit exactly the same way as all the rest of them would in this system.

I made some trenches.

These are on 16x32 baseplates and leave the edge at the 4 studs in the middle.

Here they are as part of a bigger setup.

The problem with these is that either the whole field will have to be raised 3 bricks, or someone(s) will have to bring enough hill sections to get down from the higher level.

Looks good, but I would have to get a lot more bricks to do anything of any real size using this system. But wonderful idea.

Here's the gig. We each bring two or three specialized raised/lowered dirt/urban/whatever the hell you want baseplates [MOCplates], several flat and simple baseplates, and terrain that you can put down on the simple or MOCplates- forest/buildings/whatnot. Take masking tape and slap it on the bottom with your name, we can keep them seperate at the end of the day. This seems to be the best method of having a large brik-built battlefield. I'm working on location at the moment.

How about you can all bring enough baseplates to put your own armies on? because it doesn't make sense for Natalya to make two, then take up five. Also, I like Arkbriks better than Silent's, but his seems easier.
