Houndblower brings us news of the new Brickforge prodcuts that will be debuting at Brickworld later this week. Amongst them are a set of reins, a gunbelt and a surcoat with a sword-loop.
The reins are a great add-on for the commanders of the great armies of the Pirate Forum – you need no longer worry about elastic bands or string to control your horse! Furthermore, as the reins fit over both types of horse head armour, we could be seeing some heavily-armed mounted troops in the near future too. Other uses will be sure to turn up too – a hangman’s noose, anyone?
The surcoats also solve a dilemma for MOCers, who used to have to choose between a minifig neck bracket and 1×1 clip or an elastic band to hold their troops’ cutlasses in place.
If those aren’t to your taste, then the gunbelt provides a less bulky alternative, without the leg-flaps. Pistols, knives and scimitars should all find their place on minifigs’ hips, perhaps with a little modification, if necessary.
