  1. Here is a Black Tree sculpt from their remarkably extensive and comprehensive Doctor Who line. This was DW420, Professor Kettlewell, but I've repurposed him as a mathematical genius visiting Miskatonic from Howard University. I love the hair. Bonus points if you recognize the equations! He looks like he cares for his abstruse and rarefied mathematical theorems, his coffee, and jaunty bow ties, and that's about it. The shabby suit and body language really help sell the character. Brainstein here is one of my favorites.
  2. So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.
  3. So I hear Paizo's got this new game, Starfinder, up and coming. And I am not sure what to think. Pathfinder filled a need; I tried 4th Edition D&D, and did not much care for the radical changes after several years of 3.5. Pathfinder was just an extension of the d20 system, and worked well as a generic fantasy game ... that, as splatbook after splatbook and so forth, grew steadily less generic. Still a fine game, although it begins to show signs of splatcreak*, as the sheer amount of rules pile up. Makes sense they'd want to expand their base of gaming; a one-game company is vulnerab
  4. As the 2016 Frostgrave campaign wrapped up, I've started working on my new wizards. Or at least possibilities for my new wizards. The now out of production Ecclescake (9th Doctor) and Doctor Payne (War Doctor). I started by cleaning them up and assembling them, and tonight I used Reaper's brush on primer followed by a brown liner wash. These are really great sculpts, and I'm sad that Heresy had to stop making them.
  5. These are two official, licensed Doctor Who figures from Black Tree Design: DW405, Zygon, and DW424, Zygon advancing. The Zygons are sneaky shapeshifting aliens who sometimes make an uneasy alliance with humans. In classic old Doctor Who they are mucky brown-beige things. In New Who they are more purply and speckled, and not always evil (although they look it). All of Black Tree Design's line is from Old Who. These are very much old-fashioned stuntmen-in-rubber-suits aliens. Nevertheless, I painted these up more in keeping with the New Who colors because I think they are
  6. I LOVE this figure! This is Kate Stewart, daughter of Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, the long-time character on "Doctor Who" played by the late Nicholas Courtney. Played by Jemma Redgrave, she is the head of scientific research in UNIT. (Crooked Dice is one of those places that plays coy with minis, so they call her "Department X Cuckoo") I love this figure because I love the character, but also because it is a terrific mini of a middle-aged woman of authority, suitable for a prime minister, president, or other important female-type person with dignity. She reminds m
  7. These are two Zygons, classic shape-shifting monsters from the British cult TV show "Doctor Who". They are genuine, licensed by the BBC, official, NOT knock-offs from Black Tree Designs: DW424 (Zygon Advancing) and DW405 (with raised hand). Zygons have appeared both in classic Who ("Terror of the Zygons", 1975) and in new Who ("The Day of the Doctor", 2013, and "The Zygon Invasion" / "The Zygon Inversion", 2015). Black Tree's sculpts are all old, dating to the '90s, and only cover the earlier period of the show pre-hiatus. These Zygons are based on the rather rubber-suity original se
  8. My husband gave me some birthday minis from Crooked Dice, which specializes in British TV and movie homages. This is a set (also available individually) of the "Doctor Who" characters Madame Vastra, a Silurian (reptile) warrior, Jenny, her human wife, and Strax, her Sontaran (sort of a potato-head alien) butler.

  9. Good news for Doctor Who fans. http://doctorwhominiaturesgame.com Warlord Games is absolutely delighted to have secured the licence to produce a miniatures game based on the BBC's enormously popular TV series, Doctor Who (back on BBC One on September 19th!). So delighted we might just have a celebratory jelly baby. As lifelong Doctor Who fans ourselves, we are extremely pleased to have the chance to bring this iconic series to the tabletop with a game system you all know and love as well as the official range of miniatures to complement it. The licence covers not just the lates
  10. This is one of Crooked Dice's many classic British television homages. Crooked Dice calls him "Hugo Solomon (New Version)", but he is pretty blatantly the actor Jon Pertwee, who played the third incarnation of the Doctor in "Doctor Who" from 1970-1974 (with a return guest appearance in 1983). Whoever the sculptor is captured an amazingly close likeness. I painted up the figure, however, not as the Doctor but as a weapon-shunning magical-academic type for Shadowrun, the cyberpunk game. Although I was trying to paint the figure as not-the-Doctor, between the player's clothing color choice
  11. These are three different miniatures representing Jon Pertwee's Doctor from "Doctor Who". Pertwee played the third incarnation of the Doctor from 1970-1974, with a guest return in 1983. So there's a cute story here. My husband is playing a sort of an academic in a Shadowrun game, someone a little flamboyant but not into weaponry or the usual Shadowrun visual tropes. I mentioned that the Doctor would be a pretty good proxy for that sort of thing, and he found me Crooked Dice's unofficial (but a very good likeness of) Jon-Pertwee-as-the-Doctor figure (as well as a good number of other Cro
  12. My husband gave me a number of Doctor Who-related miniatures for my birthday and I've started painting them up. They include figures for Jon Pertwee's Doctor and the Brigadier, so when I noticed that this figure, Bombshell Babes #10019, "Dr. Helen Salinger", looked an awful lot like the Pertwee-era companion Liz Shaw it just seemed natural to throw her into the mix. I've already gotten her a bit off and running. I glued her to a base, primed her white, and washed over her with Burnt Umber. I've already painted her face, hair, and glasses. Liz Shaw doesn't wear glasses so I've painte
  13. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-36370997 He was also in James Bond films and "Doctor Who".
  14. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1067367405/pinball-arcade-doctor-who I only just found out about this, it's already live. Farsight Studios, creators of The Pinball Arcade, are raising funds to digitize the Doctor Who pinball table. I thought this would interest a few people here. I wanted to add that there's a particular commenter on this one who is on every Farsight KS and pledges to go on about some fraud or somesuch. Normally I don't weigh in on such matters, but in case somebody is thinking of pledging but sees that as alarming, Farsight has delivered every single time. They'r
  15. https://www.flickr.com/photos/xenomurphy/16424818798/?rb=1 A TARDIS interior made of Lego, all used straight as-is, so far as I understand it. Nicely done.
  16. So which of these blue spray paints would you use on a rather large Tardis model? http://www.liquitex.com/us/shop/paints/professional/spray-paint/36093/
  17. Hello everybody! I am enjoying so much this little project (triggered by Jasper's SciFi Challenge!) that I decided it would be better to make it a spin-off thread of my main compiled WIP thread. Instead of talking a lot, I will take you through the pictures. First, I had an idea. Doing a round-base diorama, with the TARDIS center, the Doctor and Amy Pong (two minis I have from Heresy Minis) on opposite sides, like covering each other backs, defending the TARDIS. Some more details are planned, but you will learn about the later. So the most challenging part, building a somewhat
  18. Heresy Miniatures Nerdlord II and Emily Lake, on a styrofoam/cork/plaster base. Scratchbuilt TARDIS (not as clean as I would've liked, but the camera is a harsh mistress). C&C welcomed and appreciated.
  19. Last September graphic designer and computer animator Billy Hanshaw uploaded onto Youtube a as a demo to show off his animation skills. Mr. Hanshaw's animation takes an Escher-inspired symbolic approach, showing turning gears in a clock, an infinitely spiraling clock face, and the Seal of Rassilon melting off the Doctor's pocket watch. Steven Moffat spotted it and liked it so much he arranged with the artist to base the new season's credits on it.
  20. Just saw this on my feed on Facebook from a couple friends and I just had to share this with folks here, since this is right in our wheel house. How to turn Barbies into Doctor Who Weeping Angels
  21. This is the best offically BBC sanctioned fan-made video of clips from Doctor Who I've ever seen. It's by someone called Babelcolour. There is literally something from every episode through 2011 (yes, even the lost ones). The music is a witty mix of the Doctor Who theme and "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This" (they call it "Whorythmics"). And the sound clips are marvelous. EDIT: My link was wonky. Please scroll down to post #3, where Argentee kindly put in a working link. The link may be a little funny. My ipad refuses to let me watch Youtube on Safari, instantly bouncing me to a
  22. I have been a Doctor Who fan for a while, starting as a kid with Tom Baker on PBS, and I recently began watching more of the Classic Who than I had ever seen - until about two months ago, in fact, I had never seen a single Hartnell or Torughton era show. But now that I'm going back and watching everything - and I do mean everything - I thought I'd make myself useful and make sure the whole world knew my thoughts on each Serial I watched. I've been going for 10 Episodes now, Beginning at Serial ONE (Back in the Hartnell Era), and I'm having a good time with it. If you care to follow al
  23. Just got home from Christmas with the fiancee's family. Her sister hooked me up with the T.A.R.D.I.S. https://plus.google.com/u/0/108048511179156444489/posts/SX3Y6YjTAve That's right, it lights up and plays the sound. It's a 4-Port USB 2.0. http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/9223/?cj=true&cpg=cj&ref&CJURL&CJID=1909525 BOOYAH! What interesting NERD Gift did you get?
