I like the camo pattern painted on this custom minifig, but i think it would have been better done as a decal rather than with paint, the main reason i say this is because when you look at the details painted on they aren’t very straight, on a decal you’d be able to add this in and make sure it all site correctly before apply it to the custom minifig

This modified custom starwars blaster is made out of only Lego parts, and is minifig scale, the maker, added a funny comment:Purist Allergy Info: may contain traces of cut flex tubing, clearly the dividing line between lego customizers and custom minifig makers and the Lego purists is getting wider, custom minifig must be the bible of satan then!

(WWII GI custom minifig by ewok master)

Whilst wwe covered WWII minifig soldiers before, this custom minifig is a little unique, mainly because of the accessories this minifig has. In particular is the cantee whichs looks like a single round plate, along with the silver brick arms pistol. The Helmet and rifle are also painted, giving more of a realistic feel to the minifig.

Lego Minifigs for military vignettes

Whilst for most of use who make custom minifigs the dream would be either Lego actually make military collections, or we can get our hands on some durable minifigs with custom decals, the reality is getting decent military themed minifigs is quite difficult, you need to really plan out what you want to acheive, since the Indiana Jones collection does have some Lego minifigs with a Military theme, and StarWars has a whole range of storm troopers, its not so difficult for sci-fi or WWII custom minifig makers. But if you’re hopeing to make something modern, get ready to do some serious hunting.

so Lets take a look a the themes that work for military vignettes:

Cowboys – Lego Cowboy theme

Knights and castles – Lego theme

WWII – Indiana Jones Russian and German soldier minifigs

Modern – Dino Attack (these are now out of production so you’re going to need to source these), Power Miners Lego themes.

Sci-fi – Lego Starwars theme.

You’ll find that in order to build up a large army of minifigs, you’ll either need to buy loads of sets of Lego, leaving you with plenty of potentially useless spare parts and costing you an arm and a leg, or, you’ll need to search on the second hand Lego community to find individual parts, in this instance you’ll need to potentially  buy the minifig in seperate parts, ie legs seperate from arms, torso seperate from head etc, this can add to the cost, but you’ll be able to get exactly what you need.

In other instances you might have designed a custom decal for your Lego minifigs, your best bet here is to source the lego minifig whos plastic is as close to the base colour you want, then, using brasso remove the existing decal and apply your own one instead, this might take longer and costa bit, but the results are supurb.
