Okay, so since thrash seems to be paying attention to this thread, here is my opinion on the Brickwarriors line- first off, I regularly buy from all of the custom lego accessory providers, and do already own quite a few of the brickwarriors line. So here goes-
All the resistance/GoW weaponry, it shares the same problem I have with most of Hazel's weapons, in that they are too overly detailed, and simply don't look all that great when given to lego figures. They just don't really fit in with the style of lego.
Meh (the Okay stuff)-
The bandanna, I just don't think this was necessary, TLC already has a fantastic one, and while this is a nice alternative option, I don't see (myself at least, can't speak for others) buying these over the TLC version, it simply doesn't stand out enough.
The Minotaur head- my reason for this is that simply, TLC is coming out with, what I see to be a superior Minotaur head early next year in it's next minfigure series. However, your head does have greater posing versatility going for it, as the TLC one takes the style of one of the ewok heads, and isn't pose-able, but yours just doesn't look as nice.
The Revolver- both TLC and brickarms have several versions of this, and honestly, unless you go into fantasy variants, I just don't see the point of doing something that has already been done so thoroughly, and so well. Note that this excludes the snub-nose, that is pretty sweet.
The gangster rifle- To me, this has a very uninteresting design and simply does not stand out enough for me to care very much about it.
The Cowboy Hat- Same reason as the bandanna, I just feel this wasn't needed.
What I like:
The Tommy gun- yes brickarms is coming out with one, but you got yours out the door first, and it looks great, works great, and is definitely worth the buy.
Special Forces SMG- this gun frankly, looks nothing like any smg I have ever seen, but it does look pretty awesome, I would personally classify it as some sort of sci-fi assassin's pistol.
Russian Assault rifle- While there are several others similar to this on the market, yours is unique and well designed enough to stand out among the crowd.
Sniper rifle- Love this gun, clean lines, classy design, and seriously badass looking scope make this one of my favorites.
buffalo rifle- see above
lever action- great design, I'd say this is thus far the premier western-era lego rifle on the market today.
The Axe- this was needed, badly, knocked it out of the park on this one, great design, no one offers anything like this, and it is totally awesome.
The Scimitar- I LOVE this sword, yes they have been done before, but yours has a superior design to any other curved blade on the market- would die for this in trans-colors.
The Fedora- Finally, someone makes a decent 20s-era gangster hat, this has so many uses, and such a great design, excellent job on this one.
The Bandolier- this looks amazing, fits amazing and is just all around awesome, also love the clip in the back.
Dynamite- finally, a solitary stick of dynamite- so many uses, simple, solid design, this is a great piece!
Sombrero- although TLC does make this, it is not available in many colors, and yours is of comparable quality, therefore making this worth it for the far better palette.
Derringer- awesome design, awesome size, just all around awesome
Snubnose- see above.
The Armors- your armor is top quality, and stands proud among all the other armors that custom Lego accessory makers offer (both of your armors) The armor looks great, and is very functional, I think that these are your strongest points, and something you should develop further, asI agree with what several of the other users have said that armor has a much more open market than weapons are in terms of what is being offered on the the custom injected lego market today.
The GoW and the Assassin's helmet- see above.
The Bowie Knife- I personally love this knife, and the job you did on it, I've been wanting a bowie knife for my legos for quite some time and you have pulled it off flawlessly, it's a great, functional design.
The assassin's dagger- This is, in my opinion, far and away, the best knife ever to hit minifigure scale, it looks and works awesome, the size is perfect, and the hilt is fantastic, this is probably my personal favorite piece of your entire line, just an absolutely marvelous job on this.
Thoughts in general-
I think that this new line will stand up well and definitely has a lot of promise, overall much more pros than cons. I love the wide range of all types of accessories from different eras, and I think that, if you don't quite have it now, you will eventually have something for everyone if you continue on in this manner. My biggest complaint though would probably be the overall lack of color choice, although I assume this will be fixed given time. I would love to see the bladed weapons in particular in trans- colors. Also, if you are taking suggestions for weapons, I think you couldn't go wrong with a knight's lance, I've never cared much for TLC's version and think that it could be done far better. Anyway, sorry for the wall of text, and hope my thoughts have been helpful in some way. And of course, thanks for bringing us this great new accessory line!
