Warlord Games gets Doctor Who miniatures game licence.

Recommended Posts

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 latest series of Doctor Who but encompasses all of the Doctors, their companions and their foes. So, expect to see Sea Devils as much as Weeping Angels, Leela as much as Martha Jones, and a long, brightly coloured scarf as much as a fez (fezzes are cool, by the way...).

The potential for miniatures from ALL the incarnations of the Doctor Who series available in one place and scaled and styled to match each other is what I find most exciting.

And because it's licensed, there won't be any of this "not-[X]" nonsense, and it should look just like the character, and not very close but a little off to avoid lawyers.

 

And I wish I knew how long the license was for, as well.  So is this an issue of buy it now, before our license expires.

While I'm excited I'm also worried. Warlord Games likes their miniatures a lot. I wouldn't be surprised if the pricing on these ends up in the GW pricing range.

I wonder what they will make out of the game. Hack'n'Slay is not the style of Dr. Who.

Maybe win through scenario points and objective holding.

I see flash and thunder. I see a website.

 

What I do not see are miniatures or an online store.

 

Someone wake me up when there's product.

They don't seem that horrific.  Â£5/$7.80 for a single metal human.  A lot of Reaper's human-sized are getting up to $6-7.  Even with the exchange rate it's not awful.

Black Tree Designs have a vast range of Dr Who minis

They do, but they are old school 25mm and only go through Sylvester McCoy's time (and DON'T include the Rani which is a TRAGIC oversight! All hail Kate O'Mara.). The style is passable but the sculpts are a little simplistic and small.

 

The worst part is the customer service. Black Tree takes ages to deliver and they are notorious for getting orders wrong.

      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.

      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      Story
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.

      Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers. 

      Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey.
       
      Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.
