The Fifth Doctor

The Fifth Doctor
25 mm






I'll admit I've never actually watched an episode of Doctor Who featuring Peter Davison as the Fifth doctor; my knowledge of the stories comes entirely from reading the Terrence Dicks novelizations as a child. (I think the last time I saw this actor he was elbow deep in a cow...). Still, I've been looking forward to painting my Doctors, including this one who wears celery.

Cult of the Octopus God - finished!

The Cult of the Octopus God
15 mm





These turned out so well, I should have done three or four! Oh well, I can always do a couple more if I feel like it :) Keeping the same swampy theme of course, I decided their tentacled faces were not masks, so I kept the green skin/pinkish tentacles and black eyes from my previous Great Cthulhu. Just to tie everything together.

EDIT: another version of these, the "official" Khurasan paint jobs by Spacejacker. More colourful.

Swampy...


Battling the heat wave and painting are not 100% mutually exclusive.

I'm going to try and finish these guys this week, I like how the bases turned out... the rest, we shall see.

Domo Arigato

D-84
28 mm




Took me long enough... The quilted pattern of his clothes was so damn fussy to paint. I think the result looks decent enough.

I really, really need to paint more, and make better use of my time. I have the Octopus God cultists to work on too, and they haven't progressed much (I blame trying to paint the Italian seasoning).
