Our first release is out and some of you are already painting, so please post any pictures you like here. It doesn't need to be just CD stuff either - the more the merrier.

Here we go. Lovely figures! Pity I couldn't do them justice haha  


Anyway, here goes:



May


Tweedy (No idea where that dot of black came from on his nose... I'll have to go back and mend that!)

Yep, boring bases. They're only for gaming purposes... and anyway since they spent a while runing about that park in the first ep... either that or it's Applegrass :p

Thanks for postng up the picture Karl.  That was just a quicky with my Blackberry (you can see that the bases are still wet!) because I was blown away at the lovely detail on the models and was chuffed I'd managed to get them finished in the one afternoon I had free!  Kev is a master of the sculpting art!  I'll try and get better pics with a proper camera when I get a chance.

Have you gamed with new series Daleks? You will need a LOT of opposition for 11 red Daleks! Extermination frenzy!

I agree - the clothes look just the business but the faces (though much better than I could do) don't quite make the mark for me.  And they do indeed look like ventriloquist dummies.

The Dalek is a Dr Who Adventures magazine plastic freebie with some green stuff for the British Army webbing.  I'm not sure what a dalek would do with ammunition pouches, water bottle etc!
Speaking of plastic, cover-mounted toys, here are the "new" daleks

FINALLY found some time to clean mine up and get them undercoated, so I shall be having a go at the Doctor this evening whilst the Mrs is in the bath.

I went for urban/apocalyptic basing (I've been playing City of the Daleks LoL) - the bases are from Fenris Games Ebay Shop - http://stores.ebay.co.uk/fenrisgames



Stage One is complete, onto the painting!

Once again, thankyou for these wonderful miniatures!

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET  

I hope there are a few different designs (hands covering face, peeping over hands and ready to pounce, for eg.) - I might just have to order about 30 of each (would make great statues for my Warhammer Undead army as well as DW stuff )

cool note to self, cure for clinical depression (or CYNICAL depression as my manager put it) comes in 28mm scale!  

On a side note, I was thinking about this while I was dealing with someone's electricity and gas bill at work (heh, I'm good at multitasking): you could do the angels "scary statues" in such a way as to get multiple poses with lower cost - 1 body, 2 heads and 2 arm sets... then you can have them made up using fewer complete casts - just a thought...

We have found that the more 'bits' something comes in the bigger the space it takes up in the mould so the more the cost price is to get cast. Maximum flexibility, yes, but we have to balance that against charging neccessarily more for a single figure. As a small company we don't have economy of scale so we would like to keep things as cheap as we can while allowing us new funds to put into new miniatures.

Where PRACTICAL we will investigate components but the less ham-fisted will just have to buy our (albeit slightly cheaper than a metal kit) wares and get the knives/hacksaws out.

As it is with likely Statue 8 bodies and 8 sets of wings in a mould we end up with 8 complete minis from one spin; compare that to 8 Tweedy's AND 8 May's in the same mould space, and we are already either going to have to charge DOUBLE for an Angel compared to a Tweedy/May or take a hit on our profit margin to allow us to sell them for less than £7-8 each.

Karl and I haven't crunched the numbers yet but we will go with option 2 and let you know likely prices ASAP. What we do know is they will be available single or as a set of 3 (the default is one of each but you will be able to choose your own mix) for slightly cheaper.

Which I don't think you can say fairer than. Nice to see the positive response to the sculpts though. We are totally looking forward to Release 3. And we haven't even started on the Minion, which will also make an appearance.

Daisy...





really nice sculpt by Andrew Rae, due to appear on the Crooked Dice website, hence the extra effort (for me) on the base... chip and burger paper and crushed Fosters can made from Rizla... it will probably get rebased at some point as it won't match anything else and I have little to no urban terrain planned (dreamed of, but not planned)...

Since the chaps at CD have released pics of their scary statues, I thought I should probably get round to slapping some paint on the Angel conversions i did a while back...


If you look carefully, you can see that the Angel covering his face has been working out...


One on his lonesome - I swear there's more definition between the base colour and highlights in real life...


Had to be done...

The angels have the phonebox:



Wait, what? I think you're taking this too literally...



Which leads to what I actually painted:



I really, really need to learn how to take better pictures (my usual method being 'get the missus to do it'). Still contemplating whether to add some scrubby static grass to the bases too...

Sad as I am, the basing material is a custom blend of several sands and grits... seasoned with the occasional interestingly shaped knick-knacks (and in the near future, detritus from the sprues of urban rubbish I got from Black Cat Bases, all manner of chip wrappers and f** packets...)

If anything, in hand the jacket looks like it could do with lightening - it was an absolute bugbear to paint, trying to work up to a lighter colour without going bright, until I fubar'd and ended up with an almost lilac looking highlight, which got knocked back with a couple of washes... (and yes, the Daisy was painted with lots of reference to yours, accompanied by much head-shaking and grumbling under my breath...)

I like the way the white came out.  It's different than the scheme presented in the store.  It will help me come up with my own when I'll have to paint mine.

One thing though, I would have picked a few more details with contrasting colours, like the knee joints, the pack, straps or cargo pockets.

Aw man, those are nice.  My figures always end up staying in original T-1000 colour.


That's the name of that colour scheme.  I'm an adept too.

Oh my Ghod, gents - you've just legitimised almost 4,000 lead figures in my collection ... you have my undying thanks and admiration when ''Er indoors' gives me grief about buying more figures before I've painted the ones I've got - now I can give her the real reason

Thank you, thank you, thank you

Paul

Oh and Karl - love those figures

Citadel Jo Grant
Thought I'd post this here as Colonel Blimp kindly gifted this from his lead mountain to feed my Citadel Who obsession. Painted by Mark Dixon of ArtWho9.

That's a very nice looking Jo Grant!  Mark always manages to use a nice blend of colors... I'm far too lazy to mix paints and play with shades.

I have some painted Astronauts and Statues I will post, possibly later today. Similar to Karl's, but with the datapad a bit more modern.

Citadel 3rd Doctor that I finished a month or so ago. Finally had a few moments with a camera to get a quick picture, which unfortunately isn't generous to the browns (which aren't spectacular anyway).

The old Citadel stuff really do have some exaggerated comedy poses going on.

Finally matt varnished the lastest load – I use the Army Painters model dip on a few of them which gives a nice effect but ends with your lovely miniature all gloss varnished.

3 Scary Statues. The other 3 I have are going to get a more grey/brown base coat.



My ARC Astronauts. I find I can't get Melody looking like, well, err… Melody. But apart from that I like them. The suits are simply white with dip on top – I like that brownish 'lived in' Astronaut suit look. Amount of work to get – 2%. And I managed teeny tiny Union flags. My eyes…



The guy with the datapad has obviously been in contact with some time travelling aliens. I like tiny anachronisms. Didn't do his eyes on the grounds that it's quite tricky to get in there with a brush without getting eye all over the face.

Here are my latest miniatures





I must say I'm really, really impressed with the sculpting on these (no really).  While painting them I was reminded of painting Ral Partha miniatures in the 80s.  Anyone remember them?  The miniatures that is, not the 80s in general...
Most of the old figures I'm thinking of were sculpted by Tom Meier (if I had a godlike-genius award to bestow, he would be the recipient.  Hope I spelt his name right.)  Painting the angels' feathers and the female faces took me back about 30 years.  Time travel?  It'll never happen........

Nicely done Mr A! Is it me or could you do with dialling your Background layer down a bit? It's seems to work against some of the colours sometimes - but then I'm always a fan of a neutral black.

Cheers, I still have Tweedy to paint, hopefully will get to him this weekend  

Bases are covered in a sand/grit mix with the odd piece of (clean!) cat litter added. Once the glue is dry I paint over it all with Dulux expresso delight 1 emulsion (I get a 250ml tester mixed that lasts ages) Then when that is dry I use cheap craft paint to highlight, specifically Anita's brand coffee then ivory. Finally finish off with a clump or two of static grass

How many people would want a 'slithering thing' which may look like 50% of something similar from a very old episode of a show about time travel? It's a fair few hundred £ to do a miniature, which needs to be recouped and made profitable for the whole venture to keep continuing.

With 7TV coming up there might be room for such a creature; we have one of our villainous groups planned post-rulebook who are very interested in nature. Think island life, lots of pagan dancing, burning of policemen etc:

"Alderneigh?"
"Yes, Lord Winterisle?"
"Unleash the shrubbery! They shall feed on those who trespass our sacred ground…"

Good make tho, it does look very much like a certain 'official' model. Are you planning on doing anything else?

My thinking was that as they are in the "official" line and i have seen them included in pics of many poeples existing Dalek forces that most newer collectors/gamers would want one  or more (i did!) still im not the one running a mini company so i will give you the benefit of the doubt.
I used the btd model as a guide as the stills i could find were very poor and you hardly see it in the dvd.
I only did the one as there was just the one in the story but ultimately i think i will do more.
I will be having a go at several other monsters but would rather show the finished article than come out with a list that never gets finished.

Fantastic gallery of pictures here! And Karl, those pics are excellent. Shame they didn't make the grade, as you put it; the painting is terriffic. In all, top quality stuff. And now to sully and soil it with my attempts at paint splishy-splashy!


Okay, well I've shown you Tweedy and May (CD); here's some Mythos-related pics to go with the "tweaked" DWMG for Lovecraftian games.




A couple of Mi-Go in all their Fungal, Yuggothy glory (Black Cat Bases)


Cthulhu himself (or possibly one of his Star Spawn followers) (RAFM)


a couple of angry Shoggoths. (RAFM)


Great Race of Yith (RAFM)


DWA daleks; the Cult is alive! (DWA)


The 10th Doc (Heresy)


Deep Ones... aahherr... I mean "thon pesky, glaikit sea divvuls!" (Black Tree/Harlequin)


The Casual May looks perfect for an Investigator mini as well! Think I'll be pickeing me one up come next pay day... and those scarecrows!!



Zero hour... at first light!

I love the miniatures you guys do, and I've just started a huge collection of BTD and CD figures to display as an illustrated history of Who in miniature. I already have Casual May, Melody and Daisy, and I've just ordered some Robo-Rodents, Corn Dolls, Scary Statues and Minions. Added to these, I've also got hold of the DWA iDaleks, Sontarans and Cybermen thanks to lurking here for a while.  As far as painting goes, I've started work on the BTD Doctors. Here are the first five.



I promise I'll put up a few pics of the CD minis as soon as I've painted them.

Thank you- no, that's definitely a BTD/Harlequin mini. The only Citadel Who stuff I had was back in the 80s, and was the box of Daleks and Cybermen. I wish I still had that- I painted the Daleks in every major variant from The Dead Planet up to Remembrance, and used a D&D Doppleganger with a Dalek base for Davros, and the gun turret from a Matchbox Humber scout car on a Dalek base for the Special Weapons Dalek. They looked pretty good IMHO, and I don't know where they've gone now- several house moves down the line and they've gone.

Nice work GW.

I thought there were three - was the one with the whomobile or T-Rex one of the variants?

I'm a big fan of the original Citadel sculpts. I know the style is not everyone's cup of tea, but I just love 'em

I always hoped Harlequin was going to do more alternative Doctor poses, like the Fifth Doctor and the Sixth Doctor with vests (Planet of Fire and The Two Doctors). And the Second Doctor and Sixth Doctors with umbrellas... Troughton's would obviously be in a sad state of repair.

the Fifth Doctor and the Sixth Doctor with waistcoats (Planet of Fire and The Two Doctors).




that's a very good idea idea... and if a certain company were to make them, would help make them more generic looking and less like iconic characters...

Wasn't fifth in more of a cricket jumper? You could do 4th in a waistcoat as well (wasn't he wearing one in the Shada clips from the 5 Doctors?). And I agree, these would be more of a generic figure - obviously suitable for characters in 7TV

in Planet of Fire, the 5th wore a waistcoat... Lanzarote was probably not wooly jumper suitable... my god even Turlough was wearing scarily tight shorts... and I never want to see those in miniature before anyone suggests it...

when he was in his cricket jumper, the 5th was usually in his full outfit - can't think of any instances of him spending much time in just his jumper...

and this is suddenly the wrong thread for this conversation... where's a mod when you need one?

I love the miniatures you guys do, and I've just started a huge collection of BTD and CD figures to display as an illustrated history of Who in miniature. I already have Casual May, Melody and Daisy, and I've just ordered some Robo-Rodents, Corn Dolls, Scary Statues and Minions. Added to these, I've also got hold of the DWA iDaleks, Sontarans and Cybermen thanks to lurking here for a while.  As far as painting goes, I've started work on the BTD Doctors. Here are the first five.



I promise I'll put up a few pics of the CD minis as soon as I've painted them.  


Love that 4th Doctor! I've never seen that version painted up and it looks surprisingly good for a Harlequin (just like that 3rd Doctor, which is superior to their first). They've only got a master pic of it on their site and I've always thought it was meant to be a later version of Tom (with the all burgundy costume) and stayed away from it.

Fantastic work - certainly puts my painting to shame

Seeing spots before my eyes now - 212 i-Daleks in 7 weeks - finished the last one tonight.  I'll get some matt varnish on them and post some piccies up

They'll pale into isignificance next to Mark's though

Hello there, having bought a load of CD models, I thought it was about time I started to paint some them.



Nothing fancy, as I like getting my models quickly on the table.

Nice paint job on the statues Blaxkleric. I also like the conversions you've made to the minions. Is that the astronaut's pad you've given to the chap with the moustache?

If I may make a suggestion, you should get yourself some anti shine varnish. The overly glossy finish on some of your figures detracts from what is an otherwise effective paint job.

Badger, yes the data pad does come one of the astronauts. I've swapped their hands in order to give me a 'third' ARC explorer 'pose', as I wanted my Melody Lake to be accompanied by 'Proper Dave' and 'Other Dave' (using a curly minion head). I plan to organise most of these models on TSS three-figure movement trays.

I keep debating whether to use matt varnish on my models, as these days I simply use GW 'Ard Coat' (as opposed to PVA glue), but I'm from the shiny toy soldier era, and (although I appreciate many these days aren't a fan of glossy models with red cheeks) I like the look. Having said that they're not as shiny in the flesh as they appear in the photos... but I may well give it a try in the near future. Thanks for the suggestion, I'm always interested in what people think and how they paint up their models.

Inspired by the Silurian Cave System (though not to the point where I'd dare try and make something similar), I've started painting up some of my Armed Minions as UNIT from "The Cave Monsters". I've a few more to go, including a minor Scientific Advisor conversion.  



A few of the blogs I regularly visit dedicate a month to a particular period etc, but I thought I'd have a go with manufacturers instead... So nothing but Crooked Dice miniatures for the next four weeks.

It's pretty simple. I had three armed minions, did two with alien heads and left the gun as it was for them. I thought it looked too sci-fi for the hard hatted human (I was looking for something more Bond villain style) so I carefully sawed off the barrel just behind the ring, drilled into the remainder and glued a piece of straight paper clip in place. It's not a period accurate SMG but it does fit the general style.

Malcolm Hulke renamed a couple of his Target novels including this one and Frontier in Space which he called 'Doctor Who and the Space War' - which I still think is rather charming

The Silurians debut is infamously the only story to have 'Doctor Who' in the actual on screen titles - as it screened as 'Doctor Who and the Silurians'.

Also first appearance of Bessie!

Many thanks. Other Dave isn't quite as dark as in the photo, but I'm not that happy with the Professor's face as my style (highlighting the face with Elf Flesh) has somehow made her face look as if it's been scarred with burns  

I've already finished painting my scientific advisor... Nothing like a conversion to get the painting mood...  

His nose is again somewhat exaggerated (like my Brigadier's moustache) and the Sonic Screwdriver has worked out okay. The rope around his shoulder (as per "The Silurians") hasn't come out so well, but once I've painted up another couple of my UNIT minions I'll put some photos up, so you can decide.

Agent Pandora King
And Solomon's partner, the delighful Ms Pandora King.




Pigs in Spaaaace
And finally a silly experiment to see the Pig Minion head on an astronaut body

Sadly not, he's a one off conversion for the Salute game - but I'd like to see us produce an original figure of Solomon at some stage.

Fantastic mini's with great paint jobs!
If CD ever do a Hugo Solomon figure, I'd personally prefer to see him clean shave, looking a bit like a young David Warner (hmmm...don't know where that idea came from   ). Maybe with longer hair than normal, this is the 60's/70/s after all.

Hi all.

I've just about finished my Austin Powers Shaguar. Just needs a final touch up to find bits I missed and straighten the edges a bit more. But anyway here it is:

Or rather there it is! As I couldn't figure out how to upload my photos so I've put them in my Doctor Who folder (Ste T's photos). After all I do intend to do a number of "Dr Who meets...." crossovers sometime in the future.

Added a racing green Bentley for use by Steed as well.

Still waiting on my figures from Old Glory as they were out of stock. They are notoriously slow when they have to re-order from the states!

Currently working on expanded house rules for vehicles so that I can use them in car chases. After all what's a TV show without a car chase every now and then?


Regards Ste T

Having hopefully finally shaken off my obsession for Hard-Hatted (1970 UNIT) soldiers (by getting another pair done so I can now field six), I've finally managed to slap some paint on four of my Corn Dolls as well   However it'll definately take the emergence (and immediate purchase) of an evil bearded mastermind before I get round to doing the other four

Having behaved myself impeccably at SALUTE, and sticking to my Back of Beyond shopping list on my return within a couple of days the things I saw at the Crooked Dice stand had worked their way insidiously into my mind.
So a few purchases later, including the beautifully produced rulebook (looks just look the old 70's Cult tv annuals). I have painted my first Star, No.6 the Prisoner, and a capture bubble (Rover), I hope you like.

I think they are ideal for modern pulp games where the settings can vary so much, nothing worse than grassy bases in middle of your secret urban hideout
Bought mine from here http://www.oshiromodelterrain.co.uk/gamingaids.html, brilliant service and very helpful, the ones in the picture are the thinnest he can do 0.5mm, available also as cavalry/bike bases and in different diameters. these are also cheaper than most washers.

I've started basing some minis for 7TV this week on resin bases (Lair-type metal flooring).  The same thought about bases not fitting in with the different environments had crossed my mind as I did it. The clear bases seem a good option.  Now you have put a real doubt in my mind  

Excuse the barrage of questions....
What diameter bases did you opt for?
Is there any problem with stability if the miniature gets knocked?
Have you just glued the 'de-tabbed' mini to the base or pinned it ?
If pinned, any problems drilling the perspex?
What glue did you use? (worried about superglue fogging the perspex)
Any other problems/hints?

Its easier for me to change now rather than after everything is painted etc.  Many thanks for your indulgence.

Hi all.

I've been planning to do a Batman list of heroes and villains (hey the 60's show was cult TV....honest).

To this end I have been utilising my much loved discovery of heroclix for most of the characters though I plan to get some Copplestone penguins and I've already ordered a couple of Hyenas.

However, I also wanted to include vehicles and I recently picked up a corgi Jokermobile.

And now on to the point (............yes, I actually have a point....well sometimes)

For all those planning any underwater adventures (mentions of sharks, frogmen and deep sea divers seem to indicate there are some.) My Jokermobile came with a Bat Submersible, which I had planned to re-sell. However other than the bottom plate it is remarkably generic and could be used for any 2-man minisub (hey its a shark's fin not a bat wing....no really!).


So here's some pics:




and press either of the domes on the top and:





Cool, think I'm gonna keep.

Those clear bases look excellent... certainly a lot better than my sand and grass ones (which do look a bit odd when fielded using my Refinery scenery  ).

However, there's no way I'm going to start rebasing my models yet again (having started earlier this year)

Some simple paint jobs for my Plastrons, Pandora King and... Vashta Nerada. I've put how I painted them on my blog (for those interested), plus the 'converted' minion I plan to use as Captain Hawkins, my Brigadier's Dependable Deputy  





Just slowly painting up my 'Femdroid Harem', and frankly struggling as my ‘black-lining’ painting technique doesn't readily lend itself to Andrew Rae's excellent sculpts. In addition, the figures’ bases, which I've already sanded and painted, have almost completely covered over the detail of the Femdroids’ slippers; somewhat ruining the silky and fluffy aspect of the scantily-clad nighty-wearing models.

Here is my first contribution, a Casual May figure I hope does not offend.


On the subject of basing, I am using 25mm diameter bases with a 24mm circle of Slaters' 7mm scale (that is 40mm scale to us) paving for all 'normal' figures and 7mm scale granite setts for futuristic/shipboard bases. In most cases this requires the removal of most of the 'base' of the figure, not so bad for slot type figures, a bind for the older style solid base- I need a better razor saw.

For WWW2, I am using the larger 30mm bases. Must finish the "Five rounds Rapid, Chaps with wings" figures.

Karl/Dags: how do you secure the more dainty feet to the resin bases? They do look good.

What diameter bases did you opt for?     25mm, these were 0.5mm thick the thinest he does, and they really disappear when put on different terrain, the thicker bases may work better if you are using larger scale vehicles.

Is there any problem with stability if the miniature gets knocked? None at all so far

Have you just glued the 'de-tabbed' mini to the base or pinned it ? Where a decent surface area on figures feet is available just glued using "Gorilla" Super Glue, if only one foot have pinned.

If pinned, any problems drilling the perspex? Drill really easily ( I use a pin vice )

What glue did you use? (worried about superglue fogging the perspex) No fogging so far.

Any other problems/hints? If going to Varnish figures, do so before basing as Matt varnish can fog the bases am experimenting with Gloss varnish, followed by Matt varnish will let you Know the results, If mispositioned you have no choice but two throw base away, but these are so cheap that the odd one doesn't hurt to much.
I hope this helps. I am a complete convert to these now have even been cutting bases off old Ral Partha Shadowrun figs (very chunky)

I'm really undecided as to what to do now, having stuck 3/4 of the current batch of painting to resin bases before I saw your original post
I think I'll get some bases from James at Oshiro and try some test pieces first.

Here are the remainder of my Doctors, plus an early attempt at an iDalek. (Sorry it's not Tweedy!)



here's a diorama, using the Glasgow Police Box, BTD (harlequin) figures of 4, Romana II and K-9 on a resin base that looked suitably like a sand quarry in Surrey.

I actually did mine on a word document so that I could re-size them to several sizes until I could pick the right ones to fit. The CBBC site has a template for the modern Tardis signage that could be re-coloured and re-sized, I suppose...
The Glasgow Police Box is rather taller and slimmer than the Tardis though, more in keeping with the Hartnell era than anything.

I'll have all this to do again several times over now!

Thankees, but I'lll be fine   I'm more of a Dr Who fan than a wargamer, so I've already got the signage in several fomats that I can twiddle around with!   I've also scratchbuilt a Tardis to 1/8th scale to go with a Comet Dalek kit, so that's where i started off from with the labels.

Some more Reaper's from Dags. The diver looks cracking on the clear base. A female companion for him up next.



Ainsty castings do a rubber boat, perfect for those sneaking-about-the-evil-supervillian's-island-base missions:

http://ainstycastings.co.uk/ad.....e807aa6aacd21e5d7d1d

It was actually designed to be part of a light pontoon bridge, but the bridge pieces never got built. The boat is chunky enough to carry a couple of based figures.

Cheers,

Guilty as charged, thankyou very much for the kind words. I make the masters as a hobby, I don't make a living from them, but I do get a huge kick from seeing the used on other peopl's game boards.

I recently had an accident which resulted in nerve damage to my dominant arm, and am very slowly getting back into building stuff for "new" Ainsty, after Andy rescued it from Old Crow. We might not see the likes of some of the epic Ainsty systems again, but I hope to make some interesting items.

True tales from a RPG:

Andy, in power armour, taking stock of his weapons fit: "So I've got the heavy, beamed energy weapon, multiple rocket launcher, heavy bolt gun, smoke grenades, teargas grenades, blast grenades, shrapnel grenades and a flamer." (pause) "Am I still carrying my Samurai sword?"

Not entirely sure about the underscale CG Captain Scarlet series SPV, though.

This is what an SPV should look like:



Give the Fembot a red costume and she'd make a pretty good Trillian from HHGTTG.

I've finally managed to put brush to resin and metal after a while, and first up is my collection of Tardises. The one on the left is the Glasgow Police Box from Fenris games, and the others are the rather splendid Constabulary Communications Cabinet from Ainsty. So, from left we have: The original tardis as used during the Hartnell years, the battered lighter blue version as used from the Davison years onwards, the darker blue battered version used since 2005, and the latest version as used by Matt Smith. I chose these ones as representative of the major appearance and colour scheme changes that happened through the years- my Who collection is more of a miniature 3D history rather than an RPG collection.



Next up, some Daleks. From left, the original Dalek as seen in Dead Planet. I used green stuff to fill in the shoulder slats before painting the miniature. It's my first experiment with green stuff. Next is the Supreme Council Dalek from Planet Of The Daleks- my favourite Pertwee Dalek story. It's actually a Movie Dalek (As the TV prop was) painted accordingly. Lastly, we have Davros, painted to represent Terry Molloy's interpretation.



Finally, not really a miniature as such, but I loved putting this together- I managed to find a Comet Miniatures model of Pat Troughton's Doctor on evilbay, so I gave this the full treatment. The base is decking plate courtesy of Fenris Games again, and the Cybermat is sculpted from Sculpey, with dressmaker's pins as antennae. The image is a bit large, sorry about that...

It's an optical illusion- the others are being viewed head on, and the end one has a bit of side showing, making it look wider. It's also a darker shade of blue and not weathered as intensely, so it appears slightly larger. The white on the window frames also makes the windows appear larger than they are- the actual windows themselves are exactly the same size.

Looks like a resin or a vinyl - 120 or 150mm. A very long time ago (hence the fuzzy memories) I painted something similar for a fellow DW fan - it took ages to do the trousers, as I was working in oills and it took a week to dry between coats. Superb model, though, but I wouldn't want to do enough for a skirmish game...

...then there was the time I painted a 1:1 scale (yes, full size) Michelle Pfeifer Catwoman head-and-shoulders...er...bust.

Hoo boy!

I really sympathise with the suppliers. Half of the forum is calling "Release New Stuff NOW!!", the other half is "there's too much new stuff. I can't afford it all..."

Oh, to have these kind of problems.

Ok, with Doctor Warlock starting his 7tar Trek rules modifications, here are some Last Unicorn Games Trek minis I have and some proxies as well. I bought these painted, by the way.


LUG Lt Commander Worf



LUG Female Security Officer


LUG Female Command Officer


LUG Male Bolian Security Officer


LUG Male Andorian Security Specialist


LUG Female Science Officer


LUG Female Medical Officer




   These next pics are some Battletech RPG figures I bought years ago. When I got them painted up by someone, they turned out as I hoped, like TOS Klingons but in Movie/TNG armour. Enjoy!


Female Klingon firing pistol


Female Klingon 2


Male Klingon 1 advancing with rifle


Male Klingon 2 with helmet


Male Klingon 3 with rifle


Male Klingon 4 with helmet and pistol


I'll have to try and get started painting figures again, as I've been away from gaming for the last few years. Just as a comparison, here's a picture of a couple of my D&D figures.

I did something similar, was gutted and then found a set in a little Toy-Shop in Wales (I kid you not) for £8.99 LoL!

Theres a set on Ebay atm, US though - for £25 (which is STILL really cheap atm)

Find a pic on the web, right click to find it's web info.
or
Upload one of your own to something like Photobucket.

In your message press the icon between the email icon and the # symbol.

That should create [img][/img] (or just type it).

Type the pics web details in between them e.g [img]www.picloc.com/pic1.jpg[/img]

It should then appear.  

Hope this helps.

Photobucket created (I think). All I need do now is take a few photos and do a test run. Hopefully something of mine will appear in a day or two. One thing's for sure, if it works, it'll be something WHO ish

He was indeed a Hasslefree Grant (b) HFA064. Once I figure out what size to do these photos i'll post some pics showing him from different angles. Also waiting for the camera are the other three star tiger members, and a few additional figures that i've added to the team

Thanks for the comments. The Computer bank is my own work. Lots of plasticard and rods and a whole lot of patience. The same with the Monks Tardis. The Monk figure is an old GW plastic fig I bought back in the 80's with added miliput. Now for some Daleks, Hartnell/The Chase era.

I've got The Chase on DVD but haven't got around to watching it yet. What are the Dalek arm attachments? Is the one on the left on soup detail?

The one on the right was used in ep 2 to locate the Tardis on the planet Aridius. I believe they referred to it as a perceptor. The one on the right was ued to locate the lift shaft leading to the Mechanoid city in ep 6.

The Doctor's pants are over the Pond?  Slash fiction?

This is wonderful stuff, Andy T!  I particularly like the Dalek perceptor  (also referred to as a seismic detector, both names being used in both The Chase and The Daleks' Master Plan) and electrode unit (the cutting tool).

Cheers Graeme. My first try at figure painting was about 1965 with a Dalek rolykin and I've never stopped. The few pics on here is the first time i've shown my work to others. I have over 700 Dr Who figs all queueing for the camera and over 500 waiting for the paint. I may have to start up my own thread as and people might get tired of my Who stuff  

In the mean time, Patrick Troughton and Jamie;

Here's a converted horrorclix "evil cosmonaut". I removed a bit of the legs as the figure was too tall. I also sculpted the visor, as the figure didn't have one. I painted it as the impossible astronaut from Doctor Who.

Now that I have a camera that can get a nice closeup picture of miniatures I'm eager to click away... even if these babies are not quite finished.

These Daleks sure need some clean-up and detailing. The grey section should have a lighter grey, but this picture makes it look almost black. All of them need highlights desperately.



Another model that clearly needs to be cleaned-up, highlighted, and detailed... but I've done much worse. In the background you can see one of my favorite Daleks... or at least it will be when I get more than half-way finished. I wanted to see if I could do a Dalek similar to the red one and blue seemed the natural choice. Oh, it's gorgeous. ...for an evil, killing machine that is.



And now for the Pièce de résistance, because as you can see these pieces resisted as long as they could in battle. They too need finishing, but my son absolutely *loves* the battle-worn Dalek on the left with green fluid (or Dalek blood) oozing out of it.

I'm sure some of you might have had models of Daleks that needed a lot of preparation, but I was too lazy to actually work on these guys... so I went to work on them in a different way. I used a pliers, a hammer, a utility blade, and moderate doses of muscle. In addition to the standard Dalek colors I added green, brown, and rust.



When I'm finished I'll certainly post more pictures... although, I'm working on some Primords (thanks to the Crooked Dice ape-faces), a pair of Tritovores (courtesy of the Crooked Dice failed experiment Insect-heads), Rory, Amy, Captain Jack, and a squad of Imperial Daleks.

Oi gevalt.

Oh yeah. For some reason I thought Femdroids all had massive nipples. Must be the way they paint them

Edit: Ok, they do all have massive nipples. I guess nipple-ectomies are a legitimate mod.

I really need more coffee.

cheers.

I did spend more time painting the dog - and had a real good look at how Kevin dallimore painted fur - and the femdroid model did go through the pain of a nipple-ectomy  

having the picture so large doesn't half show up the mistakes!

just bought some more crooked lead, so more painting for the project soon.

Don't be so hard on yourself, it a nice paint job on misty. A model that is always easy on the eyes.

That picture of Misty reminds me a bit of Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim vs The World.

Nice Misty. Its a look I would go for. Clearly I would have to get her to do her laces up. That's a dreadful trip hazard for a start.

Cheers.   Been collecting toys since '93, and I can count the number of those painted to be less than a hundred. A main reason for the blog.

I agree about the highlights - and to be honest with you, I probably chickened out painting them on [I can't actually remember why I stopped applying paint when I did]. But, as I've said, and no doubt will again, they're just to be played with so I don't think I'll go too far with the paints [and with my levels of motivation, if I get bogged down in too much painting with no end in sight, then projects tend to get "forgotten"].

Received my two school girls [re: my blog "waiting for the postman"] yesterday. Ta CD   But I'm painting up naval toys today, so they'll have to be next on my list. Also, just taken advantage of the 25% sale from CD, so I can build up my 7ombie tv cast, goody & baddy 7tv casts [and then there's my Perry Samurai figures I've used to make a "Shogun-cum-Laura Joh Rowland"-type Bushido cast, just for me].

Wow, that's a lot of words. I'll keep posting my finished fig's, and say thanks to those forum member's who've been over to my blog, using the referring URL from my signature. It all keeps me inspired and motivated.

Speedpainting week. 4 Yeti, 4 Mummys, 4 Gel Guard, 8 Sea Devils, 8 iDaleks, 8 Daleks, 5 Weeping angels and Ice Warriors drying as I type. Quick and nasty to get them on the table, its about time I finished something. Painstakingly slow painting will resume immediately.
(mummy with optional mouldline there and Daleks without matt varnish to vanquish thier foes by dazzling them)

gingerbhoy - love how nicely she  comes across as school teacher in those colors

jp556 - lovely set.  I have to base my just painted Yetis and Ice Warriors, so it was nice to see your snow bases there.
