We come from the land of the ice and snow

Robot Yeti
28 mm




In between probing the mysteries of cancer biomarkers and looking after No Such Agency Jr-ette, I managed to paint this up. It's a Yeti from the 1967 Doctor Who serial "The Abominable Snowmen"... but I guess you could use it as a regular Yeti, too.

Alas, I think this guy really got his mother's hips.

  1. Your photo caption made me laugh! Nice mini too.

  2. Yours looks a lot more menacing than the original! Great base too.

  3. there's a lot of subtle things going on with this painting and love how them all came well together; there's the yellow-ish hue in the fur... the the glowing eye effect, the contrast between dark and pale fur and finally the base with the footprint on it.

    betther results than the sum of its parts if you ask me! For long I've had in mind doing a yeti-style zoaniod from Guyver or a morlock and your paintjob is encouraging me to start it at some point.

    Saved the pic in my computer :)
