I wasn’t sure where to post this, but General Sci Fi seems as good a place as any.
Here I’ll chronicle my painting of Crooked Dice miniatures for Doctor Who, other cult TV and 1970s based miniatures. It’s a step away from my first love 6mm but a welcomed distraction.
These were an experiment in changing my painting style. I’ve always painted all of the basecoats on a figure slapped on a brown wash over everything and then re highlighted everything, but with these I’ve been practicing painting each area with a Basecoat, a selective shade and highlights using a lot of Matt varnish mixed into my paints to smooth transitions.
First up Captain Jack Harkness
Next up some figures for Cult TV gaming
Number 6 aka Dangerman
Ed Straker of S.H.A.D.O.
And finally four generic villains
A corrupt industrialist
His strongarm enforcer
A radioactive man caught in a failed experiment
And a Kung Fu master who sells his services as bodyguard to whoever can afford his price
I’ll continue to add things here as I paint them up. Next on the painting table are Number 2, a generic resident from The Village, River Song, The 7th Doctor, Dorothy “Ace” McShane, Benny Summerfield (from the Doctor Who Virgin NA novels), Nick Fury and a Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle.
