DF Guidelines
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Basic guidelines for the Dawn Forge theme -

FOR MECHS, VEHICLES, SHIPS, ETC.-

Color scheme – Primarily dark bluish grey or dark grey, (but regular bluish grey and regular grey are fine as well) with one other accent color. Black used in detailing and greebling, or to set off certain features, like weapons, vents, etc.

Design – Chunky, heavily armored look predominately. Lots of slopes, angels, tiles, etc.. very few curves and round shapes. Other design cues include intake grates and an overall clean look with moderate greebling in strategic areas (weapons, joints, etc..) often involving hoses.

Weapons – Almost exclusively ballistics technology (Gatling guns, rail guns, auto-cannons, rockets and mortars, etc..) with very few energy weapons (lasers, particle beams, etc…)

FOR PERSONNEL -

Combat personnel - Muted colors…black, grey or bley, brown, tan, dark green, dark red, dark blue…that king of thing. Even white for some sort of arctic unit would be ok, but whatever you use, be sure to make the legs and torso the SAME color so it looks like a military uniform. Body armor is nice for that futuristic feel (I usually flip mine backwards), but again, think muted colors instead of bright ones. Obviously, soldiers in the same unit should be wearing the same uniform, except perhaps for the unit commander who could have some variation. Again, weapons should be projectile based instead of energy based. Think bullets and rockets, not lasers and plasma…

Non-combat technicians and support personnel - Should be brighter colors…orange, yellow, red, blue, etc. Again, match the leg and torso color so it has the feel of a uniform instead of just a shirt and pants.


Generally speaking, DF is meant to be a futuristic military force with a certain degree of realism to it, often utilizing the mech as it’s primary combat platform. Of course, “realism” is a relative term when dealing with subject matter such as this, but at least try to keep it in mind when building. A moderately sized, well armored walker with realistically scaled weapons is much closer to the mark than skyscraper sized humanoid mecha with a 200 ft. lightsabers.

Of course it’s still just playing with Laygoes, so the most important thing is to enjoy yourself! If the DF theme helps you to do so, then that’s really all that matters. Feel free to post here if you have any questions.

Love the theme too. Hopefully I'll be able to live up to it. Not sure when I'll get a DF MOC up, so you can take me off for now if you want.

Glad you guys like the theme, and John, feel free to add your Harbinger to the group pool.

Also, from here forward, let’s reserve this thread specifically for questions and discussion about the details of the DF theme. Of course, I understand why you posted your comments here because unfortunately I didn’t have a general conversation thread created. My bad, but there’s one there now…;-)

Glad to hear you’re thinking about building one, John. TAV is an acronym for Tactical Artillery Vehicle. In my mind, it should be lighter or faster or more mobile than your standard artillery, and emphasize versatility and precision over brute force. Of course, you could interpret that in a variety of ways, but generally speaking, I think a TAV would be something with tracks or wheels as opposed to a mech (which would simply be referred to as an artillery mech.)

In retrospect, my EVOLUTION class TAV should probably have had larger, more aggressive wheels to emphasize its mobility, but I just liked the look of the low profile ones.

I also have a question: What types of Troopers soilders are right for the Dawn Forge, I saw some guys in Black, some in white, some in grey, so what is the original DF Trooper (or however you would like to call it)?


I don't know what Brian's ideas are for soldiers, but my attack helicopter page also has a picture of my idea for a DF soldier.

As you guys have noted, there is not really one specific color scheme that I use, but here are some guidelines for DF personnel.

Combat personnel should be muted colors…black, grey or bley, brown, tan, dark green, dark red, dark blue…that king of thing. Even white for some sort of arctic unit would be ok, but whatever you use, be sure to make the legs and torso the SAME color so it looks like a military uniform. Body armor is nice for that futuristic feel (I usually flip mine backwards), but again, think muted colors instead of bright ones. Obviously, soldiers in the same unit should be wearing the same uniform, except perhaps for the unit commander who could have some variation. Weapons should be projectile based instead of energy based. Think bullets and rockets, not lasers and plasma…

Non-combat technicians and support personnel should be brighter colors…orange, yellow, red, blue, etc. Again, match the leg and torso color so it has the feel of a uniform instead of just a shirt and pants.

I’m not trying to be overly restrictive here, I’m just trying to get a little consistency within the theme. And please, when making figs, don’t forget the ladies! With their heightened emotional sensitivity making the neural interfaces present in DF mechs more efficient, women generally make better mech pilots…

BTW, I added the personnel guidelines to the first post in this thread as well to help simplify things.

I don't know what Brian's ideas are for soldiers, but my attack helicopter page also has a picture of my idea for a DF soldier.

That fig is really nice, very much in keeping with the DF theme. The only thing I would change would be to not mix the dark grey and dark bley in the same outfit, but I realize this may have just been a parts limitation thing.

John - Light grey would be fine, but just try and make the legs and torso the same color to maintain the look of a military uniform.

Luke – Sounds good, and you’re welcome.

And to everyone, don’t feel like because you’re part of this group, you’re forced to build DF stuff. If you feel inspired and want to give it a go, have at it, but posting new creations is certainly not a requirement for being a member of the group. Better to take your time and really do it right than to rush something out just to post a new MOC. Or at least that's how I see it...;-)

Neither do I. =P
With the Uniform thing, can we make Decals in a Uniform fashion, such as Dark Bley and Tan for mecha pilots, Dark Bley and Black for soldiers, etc.

And, As you may have seen, I have done a bit of DF stuff, but I am better with smaller units. I may try some decent Hardsuits and Another Mecha when I have a decent Amount of LEGO, but with the bushfires here, I haven't had much to do with LEGO.


EDIT:-, OH!, what about Brickforge "Space Marine" armour for the body and just standard LEGO Dark Bley Helmets with black visors, Or Light GREY Rock Raider Helmets?

Martin, you’re welcome to try whatever you would like with the uniforms, but I don’t want to make any strict standards beyond the guidelines I have already established. I think it will allow for more individual creativity. That said, it sounds like you have some nice ideas there.

Although, for my part, I’ve been trying to avoid using dark bley in the DF figs since the vehicles are already almost all that color.

And BTW, your L.T.A.H.E. post is fine. I’ve considered hovering or anti-grav stuff myself, and I just might do it yet.

Brian the DF humans have colonized a lot of planets or only earth because with more planets avery builer can make a different story about how the Czek were found in that planet.. and than how every admiral coordinated the troops on the planet.. this would expand a lot the possibilities of roleplay( if i can call it so ^^ ).. what do you think?

The DF back story and how they encounter the Csek will be fairly early in the colonization process, and all the colonies will be within the solar system, on the most hospitable planets, moons, asteroids, and of course, man made space stations. I want to keep it grounded in reality…or at least something close to it. ;-)

I will have a very specific first encounter with the Csek that involves other important aspects of the DF, but if you guys want to come up with various later Csek encounters, feel free. I would just ask that you don’t get too far reaching with your storylines, so they don’t clash with the one that I (eventually) post. Maybe just stick to the circumstances behind your specific encounter, rather than explaining too much history.

Is there any Dawn Forge star ships then? Maybe they can be Dusk Forge or Star Forge or something else so Dawn Forge stays mech based. Also, as much as I like the awesome Csek, the large walkers like the SCHISM or FOUNDATION classes would be much more epic fighting (and doing well) against other walkers or even tanks and things. Possibly the Csek can have some vehicles too? or just larger bulkier versions of the Csek? I just think that the heavy and massive Dawn Forge walkers (what DF is all about) won't do much against the little buggers so why would the Dawn Forge build them in the first place? I like the plot/story behind the Highway 44 diorama. The whole warlord thing right? I'd imagine he'd have some more modern tank/mech style things than the little Csek. If the Csek get to use vehicles or have larger brothers, I think they'd be more appropriate enemies. Thank you.

I think the csek should stay as they are. You do know that you can make human armies that oppose the DF don't you? Yeah, like Darius Megal who had his citadel nuked by a FOUNDATION, then got killed by a mag-drive railgun.

So this is what the famous Dawn Forge is? I spent a half-hour on Google trying to figure out what it was! It's so popular, I thought it was some sort of television series the LEGO community caught onto or something, but it turns out to be a theme created by a humble LEGO designer and fan.

I've got to say, the level of popularity The Dawn Forge has achieved is quite astounding. But no surprise, NOTHING is cooler than military mechs! This is totally my favorite LEGO theme, I hope to contribute to it myself soon.

I do not personally think that would be a good idea, as Dawn Forge sprung up some time in the future, and what you are suggesting is just dieselpunk.
Even if it fitted the colour guidelines it would not be dawn forge.

HOWEVER... try it, I dunno a Diesel powered walker, post it and if it looks good enough we'll put in a vote as to whether we expand to accompany this.
(me being one of the voters) still think that Brian would think it against his pure elegance, but it's worth a shot.
This world got where it is today by taking risks.
Now people just don't bother.
I say do it even though it is totally against the idea of Dawn Forge.

I'm open to anything, but I think the purists here will be against this. Because Dawn Forge is rooted in a near future time period I think it might not be the best theme for a retro MOC.

Well honestly though, most dieselpunk is set either in an alternate dimension's future, or a near future where we revert back to diesel, such as Crimson Skies-esque stuff. However I think if I make it well enough it could blend pretty harmoniously here as sort of a Retro Futurism blend. I think I'll try a walker or something, and if you mates don't like it then just kick it from the group! Nothing ventured nothing gained after all, right mate?

Here's the thing, Jake; (and I've made similar comments elsewhere) Dawn Forge is not diesel punk, nor is it steam punk, or anything else like that. You're idea does not fit in well with the theme (huge, heavily armored), BUT that doesn't mean your creations won't be cool looking. Go ahead and build whatever you want, and if it doesn't fit some group's storyline, who cares? A good creation will stand out on its own, so go ahead and make some diesel punk things, that sounds like a great idea, it's just not what DF is all about. If Dawn Forge has inspired you to build certain things, that's great! but you don't need our permission to build anything, so tinker away and hopefully your build turns out well :)

Thanks, then I guess I'll build and think up something else for it since it doesn't really fit...Thanks for the advice:)

I think you may have missed Zane's point. Build what you want, if it rocks, we'll applaud! ;-)

Hell, they were talking about putting Dawn Forge into orbit and beyond.
I personally require an excuse to build a SHIP eventually, so maybe that's it.

It's gotta be big enough to carry several mechs doesn't it? :-D
Talking maybe.. 4 SCHISM's in the hangar.
:-P

where did Dominik S's account go?

It's a shame he's gone cause he was one of the few devoted Dawn Forgers

Agreed. Once my parts get freed up after Brickworld in June I will probably make a large Dawn Forge Mech. Right now too much of my dark gray is tied up, as well as my light gray.
