In honor of the new Doctor

First lot of pics of my recent efforts of taking photos of miniatures. Despite researching this I still can’t get a decent field of depth.

As to the new Doctor. Out on a limb here – because I don’t know what folk are saying because of my hermit like existence – but IMHO – it’s rubbish! We are about 5 or 6 episodes in and there has been one ‘not bad’ episode. The rest range from pretty poor to rubbish.

Don’t get me wrong – I think Peter Capaldi makes a great Doctor (potentially anyway) but the story-lines and some of the writing are terrible. Some of the dialogue can be sharp but come on, the rest is pretty pants.

Anyway, 15mm Doctor Who and assistant here. Obviously my take on a ‘future’ Doctor with smoking jacket (how un-pc) and hat. He’s from Bluemoon Manufacturing’s range of Vampire Hunters. The assistant (we’ll call her Amy) is a not-Walking Dead survivor from Khurasan Miniatures. The Tardis is a thrown together papercraft thing (with caved in roof because the thing was so fiddly).Doctor Who, Assistant and Tardis 15mm

Well, if your gonna mess with the good Doctor, why not a new disguise for the Tardis. The privé disguise could work both ways – “No way am I going in there!” or “My God I’m bursting”.Doctor Who, Assistant and Prive 15mm

 

15mm Sci-fi bonanza. Motley Crew.

No not the rock band but this mishmash of spacefarers. I believe the centre 3 are inspired by a cultish westernised tv show but cannot see the origins of the big guy or the bot. Any suggestions?

Sold as a set by Khurasan. The vehicle in the back is a repaint of a toy I picked up ages ago. Part of a set that was contained in a fold out planet. I can’t recall the make or range. Googled it!

15mm Sci-fi bonanza. Movie Stars.

As I said in an earlier post, I’ve been re-bitten by the sci-fi bug. And, despite having plenty of miniatures (and terrain) of a futuristic nature in 28mm (and 6mm) I decided to go down the 15mm path instead (part of my rationale justified this by the fact that I had ditched my 28mm fantasy for 15mm so why not sci-fi too). I also blame the likes of Khurasan Miniatures who seem to be at the forefront of a 15mm renaissance at the moment. For me, they do for sci-fi what Demonworld and Splintered Light does for fantasy in 15mm.

Anyway, in a bid to try and master miniature photography (failed) here is a series of posts of recent acquisitions and paint jobs. Curses on all the manufacturers represented here for producing such good stuff.

Mostly Khurasan here. The movie stars; a robotic cop, a red demonoid and an archaeologist dressed for the gym. The liquid robot is from 15mm.co.uk.

15mm Horror Werewolves from Blue Moon

It’s been a while since my last update so a few batch posts to follow now that I’ve sneaked in a bit of ‘me’ time. Here is a ‘pack’ of werewolves from Blue Moon. I like the variation in werewolf ‘types’.

See them here.
