This 34mm tall metal miniature of the Master is manufactured by “Warlord Games” and can be found in the "I Am The Master" boxed set from their "Into The Time Vortex" range. "Horribly disfigured" and on his last regeneration, this particular grisly-looking incarnation of the renegade Time Lord used the source of the Traken Union's power to help him merge with the body of Consul Tremas in the January 1981 BBC Television story “The Keeper Of Traken”.
The figure was initially undercoated with "Vallejo" Black surface primer, and treated to a layer of Black. It was then heavily dry-brushed with Heavy Charcoal before being washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil. The evil villain was subsequently dry-brushed with (more) "Vallejo" Heavy Charcoal and had some of this tattered clothing additionally highlighted with some "German Grey".

The Master's decomposing hands and face were carefully 'picked out' with a combination of "Vallejo" Iraqi Sand, "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade. His 'lifeless' eyes were 'dotted in' using dabs of "Vallejo" White and more Strong Tone Quickshade, whilst his energy pistol was treated to a combination of "Citadel" Ironbreaker and Nuln Oil.
Impressively bringing two Fate Tokens to the table in the Nottingham-based company's "Doctor Who: Exterminate!" rule-set, this "Unique" single model faction, is able to withstand "Wounds (2)" as well as 'equip' the "You Will Obey Me" Adventure Card for free. This means that "once per turn" the Master "may attempt to hypnotise" any enemy character (except Special Characters or Incorporeals) within 6", and even if he fails to take control of them, they can still be "Shocked."
|Draconian WIPs - The regal aliens have had some of their details layered|
Alongside the two remaining Cult of Skaro Daleks I have recently started painting, I have also begun work on a piece of appropriate resin scenery for them to protect. The Genesis Ark comes as part of the "Maximum Extermination!" expansion set, and having based it upon one of the 40mm thin-lipped circular bases I use for objective markers I have been loyally layering it in between some of my other mini-projects.
Finally, having sat somewhat unloved on my painting table for a while, I have finally started properly progressing two of my Draconians. I've actually found the tremendous detail on these Noble sculpts a little intimidating (especially that on their back), but now armed with the relevant reference material I hope to finish this pair of reptilian humanoids reasonably quickly...
