Gor, it's been a long time since the last Dr Who Wednesday! To look at DrWWeds #10 you have to go back to March!
I'd love, if as a result of that, this was a long post full of lots of things I've been doing in the last two months, but it isn't. Who do I blame for this? THE BLOODY DERLICKS!!! More on that later.

Spotted on the Web
I haven't even posted about Warlord's new Dr Who figures that were put on display at Salute*. The consensus is that they're rather good - though the naysayers have been mumbling about the scale - a rather 'heroic' 28mm apparently. As I say, I haven't seen them in the flesh, and in any case will reserve judgement until pricing info comes around.
* I'd hoped to see them in the flesh on the Warlord stall at Dicini - but they hadn't brought them along due to space constraints.
On the Paint-Table
My painting queue has been dominated by Dr Who for a long time. Who do I blame for this? THE BLOODY DERLICKS!!!
|That'll Learn Them!|
About the last time I posted a DrWWeds, I thought I had finally cracked the secret of Dalek Balls*. "Just carry on like this, Edwin,. Do an hour or so each evening, and you'll soon crack it". And so in my hubris, I got carried away. Now there are about two dozen of the buggers in various states of non-completion TAUNTING ME!
* I know people say the secret is to use a straw, but I just haven't tried that method.
Of course, they aren't the only culprits. I hate to say how long those Ood and Silence have been a whisper from being finished. Let's just say it's been a while.* Over on FaceBook the Official Doctor Who people have a Monster of the Month, posting all sorts of clips, snips photos and fan art. Lots of good reference material. May was Ood Month**. Did you know that Oods had spotty necks? No, neither did I. I'm not painting bloody spots on bloody Ood I assure you!
* I put them aside to concentrate on the AHPC Five.
** No news as yet on who will be June monster - betting is that it won't b e giant moth creatures.
