|There are some other parts that I have featured in this review, that are not part of the Digger set. These are the main components that go together as the intended set.|
I had picked up some great new LEGO minifig compatible bits that come from the minds over at BrickWarriors, and the one I'm reviewing today is the fantastic Digger Armor Set!
As I was getting ready to review these, the urge to get some custom painting done with this set came over me, as it has a great Warhammer Fantasy/Hobbit-Battle of the Five Armies Dwarven/Orc armor sort of vibe going for it.
Now it had been some time since I really painted miniatures (slaps own hand), so it took a while to get the nerve to jump back in and paint something this small. But true to the quality of BrickWarriors' bits, the designs are made of premium plastic, have clean workable line and form, that look beautiful as is, but also take a paint job very well.
|Along with the helmet, weapon, shield, and breastplate armor, I also picked up (shown in lower right hand corner) the vambrace and shin guard elements to round out my soon to be heavily armored minifigure.|
So I went with a silver, copper, and red color motif, with accents of black and acid green and other little hints of blue and off white throughout it. The helmet and shield above I believe were the most successful, but that's more to the fact that I was fumbling back through my own miniature painting skills like a drunk sushi chef wielding sporks on a Tuesday during all you can inhale spicy tuna roll night.

So if you're looking for some kick ass fantasy armor to round out your LEGO or other brick building sets, you can't go wrong here with the parts above. Thanks for reading!
