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.

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.

"American Idol"...

Domo Arigato

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).
