A really nice setup, notice how the minifig is kneeling, also notice how the blast of the bullet have been made. Interestingly the ammo belt is really cool: Certain zip-ties fit perfectly into the recieving end of Lego bricks, so painting them gold makes them look like ammo belts.

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

Boer War Lego custom minifigs

Boer War Lego custom minifigs

(1st Battalion, Royal Tabnerian Rifles custom minifigs by david tabner)

There is a real movement amongst Lego custom minifig builders to create massive uniformed armies of custom minifigs, this is usually popular with Star Wars Lego minifig fans, and there are massive Clone minifig armies. This however is the 1st Battalion, Royal Tabnerian Rifles, an army of custom minifigs inspired by the Boer wars, some of the details you might notice are the pith helmets, brown shoulder epaulettes and crossed ammo pouches (from the tusken raider starwars Lego minifig) Whilst  all the pieces in these minfigs  are standard, you can consider them a custom minifig as they different Lego elements have been selected to create a new minifig.
