|Silurian WIPs - A Silurian, A Silurian Attacking and Scibus|
As a result I have scoured my backlog and subsequently started priming a surprisingly large number of Silurians and Silurians Attacking to use as the bulk of a "Homo Reptilia" invasion force. These sculpts are all based on the reptile-like humanoids as they were first seen in the Jon Pertwee 1970 serial "Doctor Who and the Silurians", and should prove pretty straightforward to complete once their "Vallejo" Heavy Brown "heavy duty canvas material" costumes have all been dry-brushed.

Admittedly, this redesigned Silurian is distinctively different to the rest of his brethren owing to him not appearing in the BBC Science Fiction programme until the 1984 story "Warriors Of The Deep", starring Peter Davison. But that individuality makes him perfect in my mind to act as the three-eyed land-dwellers' commander, and opens up the possibility of the "Eocenes" utilising a few more figures taken from the Fifth Doctor's era.
|"Black Tree Design" WIPs - Aggedor, a Sharaz Jek Android and an Auton|
Of course, that doesn't mean I have completely turned my back upon working on a few other "Doctor Who" miniatures this month which I have delightfully discovered during my rummaging around. Indeed, sticking with the Third/Fifth Doctors' tenures I hope to 'polish off' at least a handful of Autons, an Aggedor and a squad of Sharaz Jek's well-armed androids...
