As contrary to my intentions my Painting Challenge submissions have had a distinct Dr Who theme* I needed to restock the lead pile. Accordingly, I bought these BTD figures when they came up on eBay.
*The Wife: "Are we ever going to get to play that Frostgrave game? Where are my wizards?"
The fillip that the Painting Challenge throws up worked its magic and the Yetis were soon painted,
I didn't want to go for the proper colours (which make me think of honey bears), but instead did a simple job, with dry-brushing in various shades of brown. They'll also do as generic furries in other games.

|Patrick T gets in touch with his Inner Yeti|
With the bases, I wanted to represent their origins in the wild
It seems that Yetis have a nemisis...
|"OK boyos! Back to the hills!"|
Secondly, a stray Cyberman who escaped the bunch I submitted for the Nostalgia Round. He too is from BTD.
And finally, I submitted one of the ever-popular Weeping Angels*. This was one of a bag of mixed figures I picked up in a charity shop. I think they were freebies with Doctor Who Monthly. The Angels were an odd soft plastic which didn't take paint particularly well. It left them quite sticky (which in hindsight made static grass a rather poor basing choice!)
* Only one of these three was started and completed during the challenge.
Coming Soon! (I Hope...)
