|"Where there's life, there's threat."|
This 28mm model of Lady Winterly is produced by “Crooked Dice Game Design Studio” and can be bought together with Travers, a “hard military brutalist", as code SKU: Deal 15 from their Classic Miniatures range. A “cold political calculator” and wearing a dress somewhat similar to that worn by actress Jacqueline Pearce in the April 1979 "Blake's Seven" television episode "Star One", the miniature makes a terrific proxy for Supreme Commander Servalan.
As the figure was going to be mainly white in colour she was initially undercoated with some "Vallejo" White before being washed with Pale Grey. The Federation leader’s costume was then dry-brushed with more White, before I picked out her areas of flesh using a combination of Heavy Skintone and watered-down “Citadel” Reikland Fleshshade. Finally her earrings and heavy eye shadow were picked out using “Vallejo” Turquoise and a dab of “Citadel” Asurmen Blue.
|"Nightmare Of Eden" WIPs - These menacing Mandrels need their claws and eyes painted next|
Sticking with my current interest in Late Seventies science fiction television programmes I have managed to undercoat and dry-brush five Mandrel models from the “Doctor Range” of miniatures sold by “Black Tree Design”. I have high hopes for these impressive-looking humanoids from the planet Eden, as I plan to use them with my pre-ordered copy of “Lost Patrol” by “Games Workshop” to game the four-part story “Doctor Who And The Nightmare Of Eden”.
I actually have a lot of ideas surrounding the "fast-paced game of kill-or-be-killed", and hope to use it in order to create quite a few "Doctor Who" based scenarios set both within a jungle environment and elsewhere as well. I've even bought some hexagon-shaped pieces of MDF with which to create some 3D tiles, so expect to see the Timelord battling Voc robots on board a huge sandminer vehicle in the near(ish) future.
|Super-hero WIPs - The Human Torch, Hank "Beast" McCoy and Captain America|
I have also recently been playing an awful lot of “Wizkids” “Avengers Verses X-Men” “Dice Masters” game, and as a result of using Beast, Spider-Man, the Human Torch and Captain America in many of the battles, have found myself slowly progressing four “Heroclix” models of the aforementioned super-heroes. Indeed I’ve become so taken with the "critically acclaimed dice building game" that I have already almost finished my dynamically-posed sculpt of the X-Man Hank McCoy, and both washed and dry-brushed Johnny Storm.
