K-9 (sort of finished)

K-9 Mk IV
28 mm scale

Sarah Jane Smith isn't finished yet, but here's K-9!  On a quick temporary base so I can admire him while I work.

K-9 Mk IV was given to Sarah Jane Smith by the Tenth Doctor, after the events of the episode "School Reunion".  He appeared in the spin off series "The Sarah Jane Adventures" which I've never seen, but suspect was only average.

Three (More) Doctors

So these recently arrived in the mail from Heresy:

From L-R, the Ninth (Christopher Eccleston), Tenth (David Tennant) and Eleventh (Matt Smith) Doctors.  Simply incredible sculpts, 9 and 11 especially capture the respective actors amazingly well without being exaggerated caricatures.  They also happen to scale perfectly with my older Doctor Who figures.  I'm terribly slow painting anything 28 mm these days, but I'm hoping I can paint at least one of these up soon.

B-Movie Madness!

"With the swiftness of a deadly cosmic ray, the Earth is invaded by indestructible Moon monsters. Their ghastly mission: death for all Humans!"

Robot Monster
15 mm

So I finally got around to painting one of Khurasan's awesome B-movie critters!  In the original monochrome of course, since a movie this bad had nowhere near the budget to use Technicolor... 

"There is no escape from me!  Very well, I will recalculate... your death will be indescribable.  Fool humans!  There is no escape!"
A slightly more thematic presentation...

Two Doctor Who projects

Our whole household has been sidelined by a nasty flu this past couple of weeks, but just as a sign I'm still alive, I'm currently trying to work on a pair (trio?) of classic Doctor Who figures:

Sarah Jane Smith with the cybernetic dog K-9, and a Sea Devil, all from Black Tree Miniatures.  Not much done so far, I'm afraid, but... yeah.  The flu sucks :(
