I'm trying to think of ways to defend my LEGO castle. Is there a way I can shoot some flaming arrows into the hearts of the invaders? Maybe some burning oil?

  • Deciding how to defend your castle admittedly sounds like a subjective question. – mindstormsboi May 14 '20 at 1:31

Burning oil is the easier of the two, since the basic flame elements

can connect into a realistically looking stream of liquid fire:

Depicting individual arrows is a lot harder due to the absence of a single arrow piece (aside from the proportionally way oversized harpoon piece), and adding a flame piece is even harder. Your best bet would probably be adding a flame piece, any of the several sizes available to a shield:

Or use a flame piece with a shaft as a combined arrow and flame:

But if 3rd party pieces are not out of question, you can get some convincing results, in this case with Brickarms arrows:

    It may be worth noting that the current version of that flame element can no longer connect in this way. – jncraton May 14 '20 at 14:19
  • I just emailed brickarms and they say they don't sell arrows anymore - too bad. – Monte Gardner May 14 '20 at 15:23

    That flame shaft looks like it could work. Could I combine one of those with a signal paddle (part #3900) somehow, perhaps with an appolo stud (part #85861). Then attach the paddle to a stoplight to allow for some arbitrary rotation. Would that work? – Monte Gardner May 14 '20 at 15:29
  • @user3794648 Yes, both would work. – zovits May 15 '20 at 7:02
