This Dragonbutt Custom Minifigure features some amazing body armour and wings, and a great use for the Brickforge pauldrons. The minifigure has been painted to the highest level with some great dry brushing. Here are some painting tips by theraconteur.

I start with a base coat of black, and then use leadbelcher silver citadel paint for the metallic look. I have a scrap piece of paper for scrubbing my brush against after dipping it in the silver to get a dry brush, and focus more on the edges to highlight the black. It’s also good to use irregular directions when brushing the piece.

Overall this is a fantastic custom minifigure and very useful tips – well done!

Casey Jones Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Custom Minifigure

Arnold Bernid “Casey” Jones is a character from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles who is a vigilante and wears a hockey mask and sometimes cut-off biking gloves and carries his weapons in a golf bag over his shoulder.

This amazing custom minifigure by G-Bricks has been made from scratch and then painted with Citadel paints to a very high standard.

Stand-out features include the hood, mask, and shoulder spikes however what I really like is the goalie blocker and golf bag.

G-Bricks is well known for doing military pieces, so it is nice to see different characters and as ever the minifigure is packed full of small details everywhere you look.

Well done!

Phoenix Customs American Super Soldier Custom Minifigure

Phoenix Customs American Super Soldier Custom Minifigure

The American Super Soldier by Phoenix Customs is a high quality pad printed (the same as LEGO) custom minifigure and is one of my favourites. Inspired of course by the Captain America: The Winter Soldier suit that Steve Rogers wears.

This Captain America features a custom design with pad printing on the front head and torso, back torso, as well as both arms. It comes with a Dark Red Round Shield with a Star and includes a collector card featuring a render of the minifigure.

As you can see from the photograph the quality of the printing is amazing, and if you have never bought a custom minifigure from Phoenix Customs, you will not be disappointed by this one!
