Well, hope you are all having a good time!
Santa clearly read my letter because he delivered 3 Dr Who figures (mix of heresey and Crooked dice) and a set of Captain Scarlet type figures also from Crooked Dice. So when I have some free time I will paint them up and post a picture or three!
Been wanting to do this for a while…it also needed to be very cheap.
Sometime ago my attention was drawn to the fact that large 28mm scale Daleks were available on ebay. They were plastic freebies with a Dr Who magazine here in UK. Easiest to obtain are the New Paradigm versions which are brightly coloured.
Have to say my favourites are the Gold “Ironsides” style dalek from 2005 series. These can also be found on ebay from time to time, and i would imagine they also were free gifts from the same magazine..though these are more difficult to get and only ever in small numbers.
I have now collected a large force of both types and look forward to finding some time in new year to get some paint on these as well as do a few conversions…Like a Special weapons dalek.
A suitable Davros figure is available from Black Tree design but I cut him from his Dalek mobility scooter and cut down a new paradigm dalek base to bring him up to th required height….this resulted in three rows of sensor domes rather than four…but that is a minor detail to me….he is a new paradigm davros!
Now that I have The Ironside Daleks they will be painted Gold…one will become the supreme dalek the rest will be Davros’ Praetorian Guard. The New Paradigm versions will be painted in the various bright colours from the show.
I have also used a Warlord games Bolt action SS Vampire removed his fangs and made him a high ranking Kaled officer, it will give davros someone to hang out with as daleks have a limited range of topics to talk about.

Likely to be the last of my De Agostini models…..Cloud city which I will use as some sort of Space station/mining station or trading post.
I promised I would make a Roman V Celts Battlescene for my wifes School to Help Year 3 Children with their Roman Topic. However this was brought Forward by 4 months so I’m having to get on with it.
I Decided that the scene would depict a much scaled down “Battle of Watling Street” and Boudicca would be amongst the Celts.
I have managed to assemble all the parts I need and so far we only have Boudicca and the Roman forces complete….Celts will be up next!
Here are the Romans with a few shots of the completed Boudicca.
The figures are modified in some cases….they are legionaries but have the shields from the Veteren set as they are nicely battle damaged.
Finished for a while but not had time to post.
