Early Doctor WHO - Logo.
(1). Colonial Fiction 25mm.Since around the mid 1980's I have dappled into my Colonial Fiction - now in 2017 I have re-built my Wargames Foundry Collection of roughly 1860's era Royal Navy figures- along with Civilians and the enemy of 'Mutineers'. I have only painted the figures and have not yet embarked upon building anything as yet. I'd like to build a Gunboat (HMS Thistle) along with Launches and a set of buildings that will be in a fantasy style of architecture.
(2). LASERBURN 15mm.In the early 1980's I did have a collection of Laserburn 'Table-Top' Sci-Fi figures which were given away/sold. Now in May 2017 -I await the arrival of a sizable order for the Laserburn 15mm figures to arrive. In the mean time I have started on scratch building some Sci- Fi buildings with more to go.
I will be painting up my Laserburn figures as 'Empire MARINES' vs 'The REDEMPTIONISTS'.
(3). Doctor WHO 25mm.In the late 1980's I had a small collection of Doctor WHO - figures by 'Harlequin' miniatures...I had the 4th Doctor (Tom Baker) and the dreaded adversary the 'Master' along with some Cybermen and Daleks. I had scratch built a TARDIS for the 4th Doctor. Regretabley all of this small collection was sold in 1993.
This evening I have placed an order for the Doctor WHO 25mm figures to replace my loss.
I count myself very lucky and fortunate that these older figures are still available - I have ordered the 3rd Doctor ( Jon Pertwee) and companion 'Jo'....also the 7th Doctor ( Sylvester McCoy) along with his companion 'Ace'....I have ordered a band of ICE WARRIORS and also 'UNIT' Troops....all up I have ordered 46 Figures along with a TARDIS.
Not sure how long the Doctor WHO order will take to arrive from the UK - though very much looking forward to it.
The 7th Doctor.
My three choices of PROJECTS are all Fictional and are suitable for Skirmish Games - which pleases me as I will be gaming Solo. There is a lot of scratch modelling to do which is also challenging.
