the Ice Warriors cometh...

a quick distraction to get my mojo back (oddly have found painting a real chore since I bought new glasses - prescription did change, but can't really see what that has to do with anything)...

BTD Ice Warriors (since Jon at BTD was able to track me down an Ice Lord for the normal price as opposed to the tenner eBay would demand)... not much to them really, a lot of green (must do Tre's gobbo's at some point), bit of red... the GW washes came in handy...

need to finish the bases and varnish, but I like these as is really... half toying with doing some snow on the bases, but that's a bit dressy for my bases... tried to do some wrinkles/scales on the Ice Lords skin, but you can barely see it in the pics... I did a hint of teeth as well which seems just enough...


one of these guys will double as Harma in full Dalek Killer mode...

the lenses were a bit of a pig as, when you really look at them, I don't think a single one matches another... reds have come out better than I thought though... all in all, I'm happy enough and feeling mojo'd...

Nice paintwork, I really must get around to get a set of these sometime (too much else to paint at the moment though)

I never realised the guns were metallic, for some reason I assumed they were green like the warriors

nope, silver (had me worried there)

Good find!

I had it in my head the guns were green, must had been hiding behind the sofa at the time!

Lovely blog - just came across some useful looking 28mm scarecrows that might be of interest for the DT era adventure:

What a fantastic blog! What rules/system are you using these minis with?

You've inspired me to pick up the Heresy minis so now I'm looking for something to use them with :)

How have you found Black Tree to deal with? I'd like to order some of their Dr Who minis but I've had some horrible experiences getting my WW2 minis off them.

Great work on the blog!

ah... who has time to game... : ) but Invasion Earth is still available from BTD, the DWMG is free and nicely supported and someone on the Ganesha Games yahoo group was talking about using Flying Lead and Mutants & Death Ray Guns...

personally, I haven't had a real problem with BTD... if it's just Daleks you want, maybe try eBay for the MU stuff...
