Showdown in Khafji – Desert Storm Collaborative Build
When: Friday 1000- Finished
Location: Main Room
The opening salvos of the land battle later known as Operation Desert Storm took place in the northern Saudi Arabian town of Khafji. While most of the invading Iraqi forces were turned away by the US Marines and US Army Rangers, a column of invading troops occupied the town on the night of January 29, 1991. Your mission is to organize the coalition forces into a cohesive force and dislodge the invaders.  We will be providing some basic landscape materials, armored vehicles minifigs and BrickArms weapons to help build this diorama.  Participants may also bring their own models and figures to add to the build. You can read up on the Battle of Khafji on Wikipedia or watch this video.

Hell at Bütgenbach – Battle of the Bulge Collaborative Build
When: Friday 1330- Finished
Location: Main Room
“Gentlemen, This is Where We Fight and Die” 
Participants will recreate the 26th Regiment (1st Infantry Division) defense of Dom Bütgenbach against and overwhelming force of German tank destroyers, infantry and armor during the early days of the Battle of the Bulge. Popular history has named the siege of Bastogne, Malmedy massacre and Battle of St Vith as the most well-known episodes of the Battle of the Bulge. However, it was at lesser known places such as Lanzerath Ridge, Rocherath-Krinkelt and Dom Bütgenbach, where valiant delaying actions and a do-or-die defensive stance ultimately defeated Germany’s’ Ardennes offensive within hours of it’s start. We will be providing some basic landscape materials, armored vehicles minifigs and BrickArms weapons to help build this diorama.  Participants may also bring their own models and figures to add to the build. If you want to read about this battle, here is a good place to start.

    My Son Andrew: Why do all of the Lego brickarms conventions hate st. Louis. I would LOVE to come to world war brick and i live by st. Louis so it would be very expensive to go and my family can’t afford to come during June and they don’t like the idea of going to Minnesota where it’s cold. I WISH I COULD COME BUT I CAN’T!!!!! :(

      Every Weekend Pass holder receives a goodie bag at the door and yes they generally contain some kind of rare / exclusive BrickArms products. The Weekend Pass also gets you access to all of the classes and workshops being held. Sometimes there is more than one activity happening at any given time, so you may have to prioritize your participation.
