Third Doctor & TARDIS

The Third Doctor & TARDIS

I don't do a lot of 28mm painting these days, and these pieces probably demonstrate why.  I got the TARDIS as a Christmas gift last year, and quickly basecoated it... and yeah.  Just finished it this week.  As for the Third Doctor, I've definitely done better paint jobs.  I tried to set up a contrast between his grey wool cloak and his flamboyant clothes underneath, but overall he just isn't that interesting-looking.  Also, there's some pretty slapdash layering on this one :(

The signs on the TARDIS were actually made using this image, printed off on a regular laser printer at 10% zoom.  The result looks amazing, IMO:


  1. I think your shading on the purple and green looks appropriately like velvet. Nice job overall!

  2. Hey
    Loving the TARDIS and the Dr's
    But wondering if you could let me know where you got them from?

    1. The Doctors are from Black Tree. The TARDIS is from Fenris Games.

  3. Hey
    I am so glad I have found this blog again. As doing a diorama for my friend. And needed the above 'police box' signs :)

    I shall get a link up on here for you to see once it is all done :)
    just got to piece together the components at the moment in time for Christmas :)

    1. Yes I'd love to see your work :) Glad I could help!

  4. better if you mirror the image and print on a clear sheet, paint White in the reverse and put on the figure.
