Here are some custom minifigs that I have been working on for a while, and am finally posting on MOCpages.
About this creation
If you are going to use any of my ideas, please give me credit. Sorry about the main picture, that's my Lego partner Euan holding a 30mm round at an airshow when we went to see a Black Hawk. I just put it as the pic because this page is pretty miscellaneous.
My custom Clone ARC Trooper that I made WAY before the new Clone Wars sets came out. I put the new stuff on him just to make it more accurate than just the chest decal.
My custom American soldier, with decals based on the Brickarms American, brandishing my custom Flame Thrower.
Custom Nazi with a custom FG42.
Custom Riot Police with custom riot shield.
Custom Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden 2.
Here he is waving his sword, all ninja like. **See game for actual ninja like sword waving**
His custom painted Dragon Sword and sheath. For the sheath, I took a spring from a clicking ball-point pen and wrapped it in electrical tape, then painted it.
Custom Welsh Guard. I used the foam tip from an Xbox 360 microphone, spraypainted it black, and made it his fuzzy hat. The rebel soldier face from Star Wars sets worked perfectly. I custom made the decal using Photoshop.
In response to a pesky kid, I am being forced to put these pictures up to show the difference between a Welsh Guard and a Beefeater.
This is a Welsh Guard
This is a Beefeater
If there are any Brit's out there, please, help us settle this dispute.
Pedantic Brit here. The first pic is actually a Yeomen of the Guard. A Beefeater is a Yeoman Warder and they wear (but very similar) predominantly black / blue uniforms. The second pic is of a Grenadier Guard (evenly spaced tunic buttons) not a Welsh Guard (tunic buttons in fives). Cool build though.
Okay someone has already settled this probably but yes you are right. Welsh guards are the ones at buckingham palace and the beefeaters are positioned in other histric places in London. The kid is some what right though as we Brits often see them side by side so easly get muddled up (When you o look around London like at the Tower there are both when I wentt there were) ANYWAY, great creation(s)!!
Hi, nice minifigs, i really like the arc trooper. :P
I'm british, and i'd like to settle your dispte by saying that, you are both right.
Beefeater and welsh guard are names given to the queens royal guards when they do to different jobs such as patrolling, or guarding the jewels. The names "Welsh guard" And "Beefeater" are infact job titles. Hope this settled evrything. ^_^
Its quite interesting to see Welsh guards with modern weapons. I saw a picture of two guards the other day, one had an M240 machine gun and the other had a L85. Its just funny seeing old gear with new guns. Was the Warthog military owned?

Using the microphone cover was pretty creative. I think the flamethrower guy was my favorite. Also, is that round a 25mm, maybe a 30mm? Anyway, great job!
Yep! My best friend (Euan Webb, My MOCing partner) and I were at an airshow, and a guy had a Warthog there, and showed us the ammunition bin, where about 500 30mm rounds were there. He let us keep a round with the explosives removed, so you were right!

To Joaquin: I have BEEN to the the Tower of London, and the people there call them Beefeaters, and they look just like your "Welsh Guard" so yeah. Plus, I'm 10.
Apparently, you didn't listen to me when I told you to look on Wikipedia or Google Images. I just put up pictures of the two, a Welsh Guard and a Beefeater right after my MOC, so please, stop arguing for something you're wrong about, and look at the pictures.
Quoting Aidan Andrews
I don't think he's a Welsh guard, he looks more like a British Beefeater ( a guard at the Tower of London).
Well no offense to you, but as a 9 year old, I wouldn't expect you to have as much common sense as a 17 year old. If you don't believe me that it is a Welsh Guard, please, feel free to Wikipedia it. If this still does not satisfy you, then be my guest to look it up of Google Images, and you will clearly see that you are wrong. Originally Beefeater was a derogatory term used by British sailors about the tower guards. Apparently they were jealous as their diet was notoriously bad and the portliness and high color of these yeomen, was due to their daily ration of ale and beef. The Beefeaters were the guards who protected the Crowned Jewels of the Royal Family. The Welsh Guardsmen are now the ones who stand outside of the Jewel House at the Tower of London. Trust me, I do my research before posting a MOC.
