Doctor Who is back on Saturday, August 23, 2014.
I have four metal models from this range that I bought some time ago, not sure if that was the only ones I bought or if I have merely mislaid and lost the others…. I thought I had ten, but there are only four.
I gave the models a white undercoat. Here is one of the models, an infantryman advancing.
I will give the models a base coat of khaki next.
I have been thinking about how I might use the models once I have finished painting them. I did think they would work well in a Victorian Science Fiction Scenario alongside my Steam Tank.
Another idea was to use them in a Doctor Who scenario fighting the Robot Mummies or the Cybermen. They are almost the right era for the Robot Mummies and would make for an interesting pre-UNIT or even Torchwood scenario.

Just one week to go now….
The Eighth Doctor is faced with a choice that will change the course of his life…
Special mini-episode ‘The Night of the Doctor’ to reveal the Doctor’s dark chapter. Starring Paul McGann, this BBC iPlayer exclusive will for the first time ever reveal what became of the 8th Doctor. On the eve of his most terrible battle, the Time Lord is faced with a choice that will change the course of his life. The darkest of days are about to begin. The Doctor has always been a man of secrets – and now they can be told…
I really enjoyed this mini-episode, I think it was a brave thing for the BBC to do, and I really appreciate the fact that Paul McGann took part. Nice clever way of bridging the original series with the new revised Doctor Who.
Now looking forward to the 23rd November for the fiftieth anniversary episode.
