  1.  

    I think the lion is about right...though I'm tempted to paint him in white armor and make the shoulder a black horse...and name the guy "Sir Sebastion Bishop, the fortress of Kingston and defender of Queensbridge."

     

    There's an NPC encounter and urban setting that writes itself.

     

     

    I might have done somethign like that as the Castle that Walks.

  2. 560 odd down.

     

    11 to go. 3 of which are scenery (And not counting going back and stating the figures that have SW stats in the Deadlands Marshalls Guide.)

     

    Since my Pledge is wave 2 and I got a shipping notice on Tuesday, that means it is a race. Admittedly I have a little while for the trouble some final few items since it is being reshipped for me to the UK.

  3. Bear in mind Kyra is standing on a lump of broccoli.

     

    As she will be on the table in front of the Model.

     

     

    Scenery usually needs to be a bit bigger than scale to look right. First because the figures are on bases that end up making them taller and secondly because the figures are bulkier than they would be if they were strictly to scale.
  4.  

    Although, Kyra does not look all that big, relative to this.  Top of head meets same place, she's just wider than him...

     

    And he is a bit of a bean pole, so it's all good.  ::D:

     

     

    IIRC that's one of the reduced size props though. And David Tennent is over 6 foot tall [1.85m].

     

    Whereas Kyra isn't supposed to be unusually tall. Her figure's half a head shorter than Rex's and since Mel Gibson is 5 ft 9.5 [1.77m] that would make her under 5 ft 6.

  5. For D&D, though, that's about right, innit? Because a one-inch square is 5x5?

     

    IDK... will it be in scale with human minis from Reaper? That's my main concern...

     

    Scenery usually needs to be a bit bigger than scale to look right. First because the figures are on bases that end up making them taller and secondly because the figures are bulkier than they would be if they were strictly to scale.

     

    Thus 1:43rd cars looking better than 1:56th because they look too low and the seats look too small.

     

    Kyra for example is 1.5 inches from bottom of base to top of headress.

     

    Here's a quick and dirty scaling.

  6. The base is a 1 inch square.  

     

    Which would make it 1/54th scale. Since a Mark 2 MacKenzie-Trench Metropolitan Police Box is 4ft 6 inches square and 9ft 6inches tall.

     

    The BBC props where they deviate from that tend to do so by being short and fat.

     

    That might look a little small on the tabletop when seen next to Rex for example. I tend to have to use 1/48th or 1/43rd cars to get them to look right next to figures.

  7. Don't forget, just over a month to get a KD mini painted up with the chance to win absolutely nothing other than the adulation of your peers, and the accomplishment of painting up one of these great models. I mean the KD models, not these lovely assistants of mine. And by lovely assistants I mean my fat cat. Don't paint my cat.

     

    Koshka is Russian for cat isn't it?

     

    She's not that fat.

  8. As far as I know no one is making official 28mm miniatures for the newer Doctor Who series. I wish they would. I hear that issues of the tie-in fan magazines in the UK sometimes come with premiums like little armies of plastic Daleks, but I'm not sure how easy such things would be to find on this side of the Atlantic.

    Dr Who: Micro Universe Prepainted collectable 28mm figures on 10sided 30mm bases.

    There were 7 Ship sets, six with a fixed figure not in the main set and a fixed ship and one with three ships, two duplicates form the rest of the set and one a repaint of the Sanctuary Base ship and three fixed figures one of which was from the random set.

    Plus a Tardis Shaped carrying case with space for one of each of the figures.

  9. Doesn't Hasslefree allready make Tardis'es in resin? :)

     

    Ainsty. Both transparent and not.

     

    Since they also do an ISO container and Atenociti are doing a variety of bins for Mars Attacks, I'm not yet convinced.

     

     

    That would work well...but really, I want a butler-style Ood. So classy!

     

    Doctor Who Micro Universe Ood would probably be your key words on ebay. Ood were commons and not as in demand as Daleks.

  10.  

    And, let's not forget, you can always soak them in Simple Green no matter what paint the kid uses if you have dire need of the miniature in the future.

    Not sure what a suitable alternative to simple green is in the uk?

     

     

    Dettol. Soak for 24 hours and then scrub under hot running water with an old toothbrush.

     

    Though I haven't yet tried that with Bones.
