Dr Who Figures

The children's magazine Dr Who Adventures always comes with freebies.  The latest bundle consists of the following


 The gift most likely to be of interest to us is the monster build kit.


It contains a Weeping Angel, a Sontarian, a Cyberman and a Silurian.  They seem to be about 54mm.


At £3.99, you might think it an expensive kit, but if you know youngsters interested in Dr Who (who will hopefully also like the other stuff in the bundle), it might serve as an intro to modelling or painting miniatures.

I think I'm going to make it up for the youngest of my many nephews, who's Dr Who mad.  I'll update you on progress.

I haven't done anything on the other nephew's Zulu War figures since my last update.  The Wife has decided that it would be quicker if she painted the Zulu figures.  She appears to be more of a stickler for historical accuracy than I am, and has spent a day on the internet researching their costumes.  She's finding it interesting: I might get her some figures for her to get in touch with her Boer roots.

  1. Sounds like a plan with the boers, good price on the figures.

  2. Looks fun. It's a shame we can't get these in Oz.

  3. Thanks for pointing that out about the freebies with the Mag as I might give them and paint them for someone I know.

  4. Cool stuff Edwin. Sorry I've been so silent, I've been having trouble keeping up with all the blogs I read.

  5. Not just youngsters who like Dr. Who figures. I just saw the "Dr Who" figures on the 7TV website and was sorely tempted. :)

    1. Yes, I know! What I meant was that they'd make a nice 'starter kit' for a youngster - a nice subject, only half a dozen pieces and a manageable scale.
