|"I would call security - but they might leave you alive."|
This 28mm scale "pewter" model of Doctor Sim as played by Aleksandar Jovanovic, is produced by “Warlord Games” and, along with a figure of The Ghost, forms part of "The Return Of Doctor Mysterio" boxed set. "Clever and cryptic", the chief scientific operative at Harmony Shoal was first seen in the December 2016 BBC television "Doctor Who" Christmas Special and has an "alien organism" for a brain...
Initially primed with a double layer of "Citadel" Chaos Black and dry-brushed with "Vallejo" Heavy Charocal in order to bring out the sculpt's details, the "scary little German fella" subsequently had his trousers painted using a combination of Dark Grey and "Citadel" Nuln Oil. I then 'picked out' his shirt with "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey and his pistol with "Citadel" Ironbreaker, before treating these areas to a wash of (more) Nuln Oil.

The extra-terrestrial's skin was painted using "Vallejo" Heavy Skintone and "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade. His facial scar, indicating where his head had once been sliced apart in order to facilitate the removal of the man's human brain, was achieved by simply 'drawing' a line of "Vallejo" Heavy Red across his face, washing it with "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson, and then tidying it up with more "Vallejo" Heavy Skintone.
Disappointingly, especially considering that this model was on sale well before "Warlord Games" released "Exterminate!" at "Salute", there is currently no way to actually use Doctor Sim in the Nottingham-based company's "Doctor Who" rule-set. As a result I plan to have the "important individual" lead an 'invasion force' of Zygons against the Tenth Doctor in a game of "Mutants And Death Ray Guns" by "Ganesha Games", and then 'downgrade' him to a trouble-shooter for any passing renegade Timelord...
|Boromite Overseer WIPs - The Commander has now had half of his reflex armour painted and washed|
With my eyes still firmly fixed upon painting up the myriad of miniatures I acquired at this year's "Salute", I have made some strong headway with the nine plastic Cybermen and two Cybermat Swarms I require for the introductory scenario of "Doctor Who: Exterminate!" Admittedly these slightly softly-detailed figures have proved rather straightforward to paint, but I still have some more left over on their remaining sprue, and have yet to even assemble the first of my Daleks.
In addition I am also persevering with my 500-point Boromite Scouting Force for "Beyond The Gates Of Antares". This Overseer will be my army's leader for the foreseeable future, so I very much want to ensure that all his overly-detailed reflex armour and formidable-looking Tractor Maul are given the same attention with a paintbrush as they'll warrant on the tabletop.
