G-Bricks have painted one of their excellent sculpted Alien Warriors which have now been cast for mass production.
It took 4-5 sitting to finish this and he started with some spray on grey primer, then went with a very, very dark grey base coat (intentionally not black) and then dry brushed with some good old Leadbelcher. After that, he used about 4 gallons of Nuln Oil, then went over with a little more dry brushing with some Ironbreaker and finally sealed with a heavy coat of gloss varnish.
The result is incredible and I really like the metallic reflection on the frontal lobe of the skull.
This is what the Alien Warrior looks like unpainted.

In early 1944, Germany introduced a new uniform to replace the pullover camouflage smocks. It was made up of a tunic and trouser combo. The camouflage pattern is referred to as “Dott44, “Erbsenmuster” or “Peas Pattern” and was meant to be used for all seasons.
Each custom minifigure features a 360 degree custom printed body, printed head and arms. The soldiers comes with a custom printed BrickArms Stahlhelm helmet and the Panzer Crewman comes with a custom printed Brickforge Field Cap.

It is not often that the same character is released by two different vendors at the same time, however this Mystique custom minifigure has been released by both Christo and Phoenix Customs. You can read about the Shapeshifter Custom Minifigure by Phoenix Customs.
This Mystique Custom Minifigure by Christo is a high quality pad printed minifigure and features a single sided printed head, front and back torso print, arm printing, and printed front legs. She also comes with a fantastic custom hair piece.
As the character is so popular I would imagine that X-Men collectors will buy both versions.

This Scavenger custom is an excellent apocalyptic Fallout 4 inspired minifigure that uses an Amazing Armory helmet. The torso and legs are sculpted by G-Bricks and then painted to a very high level by McLovin1309.
The stand-out feature is definitely the helmet and the painted rust effect looks incredible. The attention to detail is always top notch and I love the chain that is connected to the rifle. The rifle itself is very nicely painted and the wood effect looks great.
Overall this is a very nice sculpted minifigure that is showcased to the maximum with McLovin1309’s painting skills!
