BrickWarriors - Digger Armor Set

by
There are some other parts that I have featured in this review, that are not part of the Digger set. These are the main components that go together as the intended set.

I had picked up some great new LEGO minifig compatible bits that come from the minds over at BrickWarriors, and the one I'm reviewing today is the fantastic Digger Armor Set!

As I was getting ready to review these, the urge to get some custom painting done with this set came over me, as it has a great Warhammer Fantasy/Hobbit-Battle of the Five Armies Dwarven/Orc armor sort of vibe going for it.

Now it had been some time since I really painted miniatures (slaps own hand), so it took a while to get the nerve to jump back in and paint something this small. But true to the quality of BrickWarriors' bits, the designs are made of premium plastic, have clean workable line and form, that look beautiful as is, but also take a paint job very well.
The vambrace armor in the lower left corner is the original dark gray that the set came in. After spraying a white base coat, I followed it with a copper base color. (the blue wire is just a paper clip I bend and push up through some chipboard for holding down small parts as I paint them)
I'm pretty snobbish when it comes to spray paint, as I primarily use Montana for my projects, which is what you see being used above, but I had hoped to jump onto seeing how well the new Ironlak Sugar paints that are out now would work, but that's a whole other custom toy/paint demo I'll tackle down the road.
Along with the helmet, weapon, shield, and breastplate armor, I also picked up (shown in lower right hand corner) the vambrace and shin guard elements to round out my soon to be heavily armored minifigure.
First of all, all of these parts were an absolute joy to paint, and after doing a lengthy run of searching, the custom Lego market has some genuine artists out there creating some extremely cool dioramas and unique characters. I'm looking to do a bit of coverage on this in a later post, as some of the work is just astounding.

So I went with a silver, copper, and red color motif, with accents of black and acid green and other little hints of blue and off white throughout it. The helmet and shield above I believe were the most successful, but that's more to the fact that I was fumbling back through my own miniature painting skills like a drunk sushi chef wielding sporks on a Tuesday during all you can inhale spicy tuna roll night.

While there are a few things I would go back and fix about my own paint application, Brick Warriors' excellent attention to design and form made even this hard to screw up. Eventually, I'd like to build a small unit of these, Warhammer Fantasy style, just to see what that looks like.

So if you're looking for some kick ass fantasy armor to round out your LEGO or other brick building sets, you can't go wrong here with the parts above. Thanks for reading!

FCTRY Guide to Eating Near Javits Center (NYCC, NY NOW, Toy Fair, Agenda, etc)

by
Our friends at FCTRY (makers of the awesome Hillary and Bernie action figures) have offered up their own tailored guide to good food and drink near the wasteland of the Javits Center in NYC. This includes both places that are walking distance from the convention center (in case you can't or won't eat the cafeteria pizza inside, or the dirty water dogs outside), as well as a few more hip and tasty places downtown which are a cab or train ride away.


As an aside, for all you visiting from out of town and attending an event at the Javits Center, PLEASE CROSS 11TH AVE VERY CAREFULLY, making sure you look both ways and pay attention the ENTIRE walk across the avenue. It's wide and traffic comes from both ways, AND makes turns onto 11th Ave from several different side streets. Stay safe kids.
