28mm Painted 11th Doctor Who, Daleks, SWAT Team or............

......owning a Brewerton!

Recently won these beauties from James and some unpainted extras when he had his giveaway, as a painter myself I have no problem with other peoples painting especially if they're this good!

I already own a Michael Awdry!

.....and a Dux Homunculorum!

....even a Battleaxe!

....and a Loki is on the way.....soon!

So I'm collecting some of the masters (well Battleaxe might be pushing it!), retirement shouldn't be a problem, Antiques Roadshow 2043 here I come......

Stunning face work and basing on the 11th Doctor, although some say he's the 12th?......

Exterminate....sorry I couldn't help it........



The facial work defines the figures......



......even if just hidden behind a mask the face work is good and then there's the bases......


This is what makes the professional painters worth their price...........

and then there's the great guy (Crazy Joe) over at Happy Valley who sent me 20 15mm Warbases casualty counters because I mentioned that I didn't know they did them on his blog and hey presto they arrive in the mail, chap deserves more followers and a pint if I ever meet him!

Seb, a fellow Reject sent me a shit shed load of 15mm sci-fi when I won in his give away and then some...............

I also won a packet of 1:35 scale plastic skateboarders from Maverick Collecting  in his giveaway a little while back.....

Need to do a give away of my own soon, probably when I get a job............

    1. First time I've heard a Dalek called cute:D

  21. The Doctor looks great, but oooh those Daleks look great all together like that. I'd like to have an Amy Pond figure as she's my favourite.

    You are missing a figure from one of the greatest painters of our time. A woman who is a legend in her own mind-Anne O'Leary. A woman destined to become obscure before she's ever been heard of, a woman who is silly and a woman who paints figures with....BOOBIES!

    1. It would be a pleasure to add an O'Leary!!!!!!!

    2. I'll look through the lead pile and find something I think you might like. Would you want a babe?

      Delete
    3. Whatever is easiest cailin, I'll leave it up to you!

      Delete
    4. Babes are the easiest things for me to paint so it will be a babe. I'll pick you out a really good one.

      Delete
    5. Anne drop me a delivery adress to exilespaintinghotmail.com I have the Amy Pond figure (only the flesh done so did not include in the give away) she is your if you want
      Peace James

  24. You are right the faces are lovely even behind the masks.
    Glad you are on a winning streak, let's hope it overflows into real life and is not restricted to just blog life!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That is great indeed! And to have all those painters contribute to your retirement fund is just amazing! Makes me want to just send you a model and hope it makes the cut ;)

  26. That's a big haul of lucky loot. There seems to be a lot of free stuff flying around the Blogosphere of late, and that's a pretty cool thing IMHO.

    Hope the job hunting isn't getting you down (been there, done that, hated every second of it!).

  39. You deserve a bit o' luck, Fran! Here's hoping it swings over to the job too.

  40. I was so sorely tempted to take these as my prize from James. But think as I already have a hell of a lot of Dr Who stuff, getting my other miniatures painted was a better deal. Glad they gone to a good home though.
