Forest Ranger by Balakov
Forest Ranger
One of those test shots that turns out better than you expected. I was trying to get a nice 'light through the tress' effect, but that little scout trooper looks pretty badass with that backlight.

The trailer is out, and it's full of awesome!
My Little AT-AT by Balakov
My Little AT-AT
I posted a little work-in-progress of this on Instagram last week, but now I have acquired the correct grey coloured pieces (thanks bricklink!) to complete my variation on Angus MacLane's chibi AT-AT.

It took me a while to add articulation to the legs and get two axis movement of the head, but I managed to fit everything in and not ruin the look of it too much.

I love this little beast, I can't stop playing with him.

The tiny Snowspeeder is from one of the Christmas advent calendars from a few years ago. Slightly modified to add some orange as it looked a bit monochrome without it.
I've finally made prints of some of my work available here on DeviantART. It only took 6 months, but I'm pretty good at being lazy.

Balakov's Profile Picture
Mike Stimpson
United Kingdom
My name is Mike, I program computers during the day, and thrust my photography upon the world at night. If we met, I'm sure we'd get along.

I do seem to take quite a lot of photographs of Lego, although I'm more of a photographer than a Lego builder. I also enjoy messing about with landscapes and portraiture, but don't get a chance to do those as often as I'd like to.

I'm a big fan of Ansel Adams and Henri Cartier-Bresson, though it probably doesn't show in my photos.

If you're interested in commercially licensing any of my photos please contact me at the address on my website

I'm known as Balakov on Flickr , and have prints for sale on RedBubble… as well as here on DeviantART
