#484509 Fantasy Minifig Contest: RESULTS!

Posted by Nightstalker on 27 May 2017 - 07:47 PM

When I saw a figure based off of the Mage Emperor, I pretty much knew that was the winner. One of these days I'll win one these contests. Congrats Dalton!

On another note, please tell me we'll have another one of these contests?

The benefits of using BrickWarriors' reward points. Every last item is unreleased. I love the new curved sword, even if I have no idea where it comes from. 

 

Perhaps you all could help me out with it?

 

Anywho, not much of a showcase, but more of a, "Hey see this sweet loot!" post.

#484318 Dalton's Assorted Artwork and Random Stuff

I really like the various TLG items that are found in many of your drawings. It is pretty neat seeing an artist's rendition of them for actual people.


#484226 Custom Minifig Resources

Posted by Nightstalker on 05 May 2017 - 04:25 PM

Hello denizens of SSLF!

 

 

I noticed we didn't have a solid list of custom minifig resources listed out, so I figured I'd go ahead and set one up. Hopefully this will inspire some additional creativity when it comes to making cool figs. I'll also go ahead and give a couple of interesting little details about each vendor (especially since I've ordered from all of them).

 

This will be an ongoing list, that I'll add to in the OP overtime.

Let's get started!

 

1) Saber-Scorpion Decals

Link: Listen, if you made it this far into the forum, I really hope you realize where the, "Shop," button is.

 

Examples: Again, if you made it this far, I'm certain you've searched the rest of the site by now.

 

- I can't create a list like this without recognizing this site first. In case you somehow missed it, this website primarily sells custom minifig decals. They range from various themes from military, sci-fi, fantasy, medieval, and so much more. The decals are similar to that of a regular sticker, the only exception is that you have to cut them out rather than peel them off of a sticker sheet. They're also pretty durable enough to stand light playing (i.e. not dunking minifigs in water or throwing them across rooms). Another bonus about this site is the ability to create commissions! Both minifigs and decals are always made at the same standard as the other decals. All you have to do is provide a detailed description and/or images to assist in the process. Depending on the complexity of the design, and Scorps availability, designs usually take anywhere from one to two weeks. You'll also receive a screen shot of the commission, prior to it being shipped, just to make sure it looks right. Overall, if you're looking for a quick way to spice up minifigs, this is a great solution!

 

 

2) Brick Arms

Link: http://brickarms.com/index.php

Resellers:

- Saber-Scorpion: Again, if you're looking for the link, you haven't tried looking that hard on this site.

- Others: http://brickarms.com/resellers.php

 

Examples:

sci-fi-pack-2017_gallery_2.png

allies_pack_2015_colorized.png

pnc_operator_black.png

 

- With the ever growing popularity of military themed builds, one company still stands pretty tall for delivering some of the best firearms and armor on the gray market. That is Brick Arms! You'll find products ranging from the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I & II, Vietnam, Modern Wars, and Sci-fi Wars. Their products have the best quality you can find in the gray market. The weapons and armor are durable and intended for play; they're basically on par with TLG products.Usually, if you're looking to grab some heat, I'd start by checking out the various re-sellers for specific goods. It is also worth noting that many of their products come in various colors, allowing for a diverse array of colorful weaponry. Another thing to mention is that some re-sellers carry the coveted prototype weapons. Keep an eye out for those, because they sell quickly!

 

 

3) Modern Brick Warfare

Link: http://modernbrickwarfare.com/

 

Examples:

m5a1ris__77272.1421768904.380.380.jpg?c=k9_armor__47870.1384629066.380.380.jpg?c

m08b__72643.1378064101.380.380.jpg?c=2TS0403P2-01__37397.1473862547.380.380.jp

 

- You might not have heard of these guys before, but they're pretty darn good. Modern Brick Warfare is a re-seller of Minifig.cat products, specifically their modern weaponry and gear. They sell a wide variety of products including body armor, custom headgear, custom weapons, custom accessories, minifig packages, Tiny Tactical mods (allow for modification of minifig gear), and so much more. The gear is made of high quality plastic, so you don't need to worry about it breaking. If you ever take a look at a lot of the military figs being made today, you'll probably see some of their products being shown off. I specifically like how advanced their weaponry gets, simply because it's one product without the need of any modification. The other thing to note is that they also have other unique items such as dog armor, drones, gas masks, watches, and other gear to make your figures get as tactical as possible. I've picked up some of these goodies at Brickfair, and I can say you won't be disappointed!

Thanks for the feedback.

Skorn was originally based off of the Uhlrirk Charger from Mage Knights:

#484121 Minifig Showcase!

Posted by Nightstalker on 22 April 2017 - 03:28 PM

Once more on a Saturday! 

 

Welcome back folks,

 

You all will have to forgive me for the short post, but seeing as how it is the 22nd of April, I figure it's time to introduce my Minifig Contest Entry #2. This time, this is a custom minifig, which means gray market pieces were used.

 

Hope you enjoy!

"Blood knights. That's what they call them. Initially, I wasn't sure whether we called them that because they were vampires or because of their crimson armor. That was until the 9th Legion encountered them. 'There's only a handful of them!' they said. But none of us knew what we were up against. Unholy magic flew at us from their line. Those of us that weren't caught by the magic considered ourselves lucky. At least until they closed in on us. I was fortunate enough to get knocked into a ditch and forgotten, but I cannot forget the screams of my men as my eyes darkened. Once I regained consciousness, I rose from my would be grave, only to see the entire 9th Legion, mounted on pikes. And that, my Prince, is the last time I stepped into that dark forest around Necropolis. For I know if I return, that I will only find my grave."

 

- Commander of the 9th Legion of Dakerion, Bartholomew Cain to Prince Caelan Alexandros, Prince of Western Dakerion

 

Though his name was unknown to the 9th Legion, he became well known in the dark halls of the Necropolis. Illaren Skorn, Blood Lord of the Blood Knights, earned yet another merit to his growing list of victories. Having served as a general for Dark Lord Uhlrirk, Illaren is no stranger to battle. Long has he fought both the Dakerion Empire and the Lenarian Elementalists of the Deepvale Forest. Over the many years, he has refined his skill, making him one of the toughest vampires of Necropolis. This eventually led to the creation of the Blood Knights, who were meant to symbolize the true power that vampires and dark magic could achieve. 

 

The Blood Knights are the elite knights of the vampire army. They are stronger, bigger, and much faster than the typical soldier. Along with their physical superiority, each knight is trained in harnessing the dark arts. Their magic is capable of tearing life essence from their foes and restoring their own. This alone makes them difficult to kill. However, the Blood Lord is capable of performing a unique spell. By sacrificing a small amount of blood, Illaren can form a dark aura around him, which is capable of causing foes to spontaneous bleed. Though the effect is slow starting, it causes severe pain, which grows exponentially as battles carry on. Their crimson, plate armor and two-handed axes are standard equipment for each knight. Apart from the unique color, the armor is enchanted to increase the potency of dark magic and provide additional magic reserves for the wearer. The axe is also enchanted to cause additional dark damage.

 

Blood Lord Skorn is typically viewed as a butcher by all kingdoms and empires. Though Dakerion deals with vampires the most, the Fallgrad Alliance has urged everyone to avoid the lands surrounding the Necropolis at all times. If the warning of the Fallgrad Alliance is not enough, perhaps the impaled trespassers, which decorate the far west of the Deepvale Forest, will be good enough. But by then, it may be too late.

#484027 Fantasy Minifig Contest: RESULTS!

Posted by Nightstalker on 15 April 2017 - 06:48 PM

Oy! Don't be scared of me. Trust me, what I'm coming up with is easily beatable!

 

I'm honestly curious to see what all the entries will be. Again, there are some really awesome customizers on SSLF.




#484026 Minifig Showcase!

Posted by Nightstalker on 15 April 2017 - 06:43 PM

Happy Saturday folks!

 

Sorry for the day late, but I've cooked up something special for today! What is? Well folks, that special is... *drum roll* Minifig Contest Entry #1! Before I get to the actual post, let me explain a couple of things about this figure. First off, everything used in this entry is from TLG. Yep, my first entry is a purist entry. Honestly, I've never made a purist entry in any contest, so I'd figure why not try one here. That being said, I combined the coolest pieces I could find from TLG. At some point, I'll probably consider using some gray market pieces to spice him up, but for now I think he's pretty darn cool. Last, but not least the description for what parts were used can be found underneath his backstory.

 

So sit back and enjoy!

"Listen 'ell yaz 'ittle gits! I'mma 'bout ta 'ell yaz 'bout ma boy Kagaz! 'E ain't one o' me warband, but 'e been fightin' wit us long enuff. 'E be da son o' da Big Boss, but 'e ain't no greenie. Dat boy be fightin' like one o' us! Ain't no knife ear, stuntie, 'o dem 'umies get da 'etter o' 'im. I done been in battle wit' 'im. I seen 'im chop da domes off dem knife ears, like it was nuffin'! 'E be runnin' in wit da' rest of da boyz, an settin' da example. Wit' a battle cry an' a choppa, 'e be makin' dem crownies run for it. I dun seen 'im rip out da spines o' 'is foes wit 'is 'ands. Outta git 'im up 'ere 'gain one day. 'Et 'im run wit da rest of ma boyz!"

 

- Boss Steeljaw

 

This is Kagaz Urgol, son of Warchief Gromack Urgol, the leader of the Altrairian Alliance. Though he was born among the orcs of the plains, he learned to fight like the tan orcs of the northern mountains. Reckless, swift, and strong are some of the words, frequently used to describe him in battle. As a front line fighter, he has received numerous blows that should have felled him, but his unbridled rage continued to fuel him far beyond the limits of a typical orc. Because of this, his mere presence among the orc fighters inspires them to fight even harder. Very few members of the Fallgrad Alliance have faced him in battle and lived to tell the tale. Those that do survive have told stories of him cleaving through crowds of men, elves, and dwarfs like they were nothing.

 

Despite his prowess as a warrior, he is frequently scolded by his father for his reckless actions. Unplanned raids and massacres have started large conflicts with the Fallgrad Alliance, which has resulted in many casualties on both sides. This has not won him the favor of his people, but it has increased his standing among the mountain orcs. Still, his clan maintains the hope that he will one day acquire the wisdom of his father. He has already shown that he has far surpassed his father's skill in battle.

 

One little known fact about Kagaz is that he is actually imbued with demonic magic. This magic allows him to regenerate from wounds at an alarming rate and enter a berserker rage that is much stronger than your typical orc. Because of his unnatural powers, the Fallgrad Alliance strongly urges soldiers to avoid fighting Kagaz, until they can fully understand the nature of his power.

Okay... I just had to say this. Having stared at your artwork for the past couple of weeks, I really like your drawings of Nox.

 

Honestly, that knight looks so bad@$$!

 

That is all, and keep up the good work!
