Introducing Melody Brook...

Here are my first attempts at Green Stuff miniatures...

Firstly; Melody Brook; adventurer and space-traveller.  Here she is wearing a basic sheep-skin and armed with a holstered weapon.  Could be from any time zone; present or future.  Hello Sweetie!

From a practical point of view she's a little on the large side when compared to other miniatures...  something I'll correct for future sculpts (astronaut, combat fatigues and evening gown variants to follow...)

Secondly; The Cloaked Emissary.  A cowled and faceless figure with a heavy chain around its neck.  It could easily be used to represent an Alien Ambassador / Emissary or even a faceless cult member.

The scale is much better on this one as seen in comparison to the 10th Doctor

Next step is to mold from these and I'm going to try to make resin casts.

Smile for the camera...

One more addition to the first batch of scratch-builds.

This time a Smiler from The Beast Below.  Again, this is sculpted entirely from Super Sculpey clay.

I gave the figure a detachable head so it could rotate to show both the "smiley" and "angry" faces.

If you build it...

Those of you familiar with my old Google-Sites page may remember the Krynoid that I scratch-built from Milliput.  Well, over the last month I've been experimenting with a new medium - oven-bake clay.
All of the models below, with the exception of the Tenth Doctor, are scratch-built using Super Sculpey clay.
A bit more practice needed, especially on hands and arms, but not too bad if I dare say so myself.
Weeping Angel

Lady Cassandra


and finally, for now,  a few small pieces of clay helped make the following...


And here they all in with the Tenth Doctor...

More models to come from the new series...  keep watching

Daleks..... part 1

Part One of my Dalek images...

All of these are based on Harlequin Miniature Daleks (with a few minor modifications as you'll see).

Starting with your basic drone / warrior Dalek as seen in "The Chase / The Dalek Masterplan / The Power of the Daleks / The Evil of the Daleks"...


In addition for the "The Evil of the Daleks" I also constructed a throne room for the Dalek Emperor...

The Emperor Guard Dalek is simply a classic silver drone with a black dome...

Then moving on to the Gold Dalek from "Day of the Daleks"...


The Supreme Dalek, as seen in "Planet of the Daleks" is a hybrid.  It uses the skirt section of Harlequin Miniatures Movie Dalek with the upper sections of a classic series Dalek.  I built up the Fender, eyeball and dome lights with Green Stuff.

Then it's on to "Genesis of the Daleks / Destiny of the Daleks" for the battleship grey drone Dalek...

The Black Dalek as seen in "Remembrance of the Daleks"...

Then coming more up to date with a new series "time war" Dalek.  This is simply a classic series Dalek with a cowl made from Green Stuff for the eye-stalk and then painted in the new series bronze colour scheme.   Not technically correct I know but I still think it looks pretty good.

And finally (for now!) bang up to date with a soldier Dalek from "Victory of the Daleks".  Based on a time war Dalek this has had webbing applied to its slats and a couple of munitions packs and a water bottle made from Green Stuff.

More Daleks to come in the near future...

"We are entombed but we live on. This is only the beginning. We will prepare, we will grow stronger. When the time is right we will emerge and take our rightful place as the supreme power, of the universe!" - Genesis of the Daleks

As promised here's a selection of pictures for Tom Baker's first outing... "Robot"
The 4th Doctor and the Season 12 TARDIS crew (including the Brigadier).

And of course they can't do anything without transport....

The star of  the show of course is Professor Kettlewell and his K1 Robot pictured below with the Think Tank bunker.

Season 12 continues with the Doctor, Harry and Sarah-Jane leaving UNIT behing and travelling in the TARDIS.  Below is my TARDIS interior; the console room is built from foam-card whilst the roundels were cut from an old perspex cutting board.  The console base is from Harlequin Miniatures and the time-rotor is part of a pen casing with plastic rods sealed inside.

Coming next... the first of my Dalek posts

Until next time....
The Doctor: There's no point being grown-up if you can't be childish sometimes.

New Doctor.... New site

Hello and welcome, to the first posting of my new site related to the wonderful world of 28 mm Doctor Who.  Some of you out there may remember my previous googlesite... http://sites.google.com/site/doctorwhominiatures/

Well, the new series and the new Doctor have prompted me to regenerate as well....

So here's the first posting.  I hope this site will focus on better quality pictures with additional emphasis on conversions and dioramas.

To get things started I thought I'd start with the "next generation" Doctors, 9 through 11 and of course the ever-faithful TARDIS.   The Doctors are all Heresey Miniature models whilst the TARDIS is from Black Tree Design.

Coming next... It's back to Tom Baker's first story "Robot"

Amy Pond:  Have you ever run away from something because you were scared, or not ready, or just... just because you could?
The Doctor: Once... a long time ago.
Amy Pond:   What happened?
The Doctor:   Hello!
