The Doctor explores the huge and diverse universe in his famous TARDIS, accompanied by his loyal companions, the Doctor combats a variety of foes, while working to save civilisations and help people in need.

The game called Doctor Who - Into The Time Vortex will cover all of the Doctors, their companions and their foes, spanning more than fifty years - so look out for long scarves and jelly babies as well as sonic sunglasses! Warlord Games has also announed the production of at least the Judoon - Inter-Galactic Police and the Zygons (most likely in pewter) as these were previewed at Salute 2016. Even more exciting is the news that they will produce plastic miniatures to bulk out the quantities of Dalek, Cybermen and UNIT Troopers needed for your Doctor Who adventures. Somebody else thinking Dalek Civil War?

From this years Salute convention in London, we know that at least the Tenth Doctor Who miniatures were sculpted by Russ Charles and painted by Kirsten Williams. The miniatures are scaled around 33mm high which is the now prefered scale for modern wargame and roleplaying miniatures.

Available for pre-order are the 10th and 12th Doctor Who and Companions boxed sets, each featuring five high quality pewter miniatures representing the Doctor Who's and their loyal companions ready for adventure on your tabletop! These sets retails for £19.99 so very affordable for five of these marvellous miniatures.

10th Doctor Who and Companions Boxed Set "Coupling a boyish charm with an, at times, ruthlessly uncompromising darker side, the Tenth Doctor was ably assisted by companions such as Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble and Wilfred Mott. Facing and confounding Daleks, Weeping Angels, Cybermen amongst a legion of other malevolent adversaries, the Tenth Doctor prevails with a cheeky smile, improvised plan and great hair. Really great hair... This box contains the following unpainted pewter miniatures: the Tenth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, Wilfred Mott and 5 plastic bases for use in the Into the Time Vortex game."

12th Doctor Who and Companions Boxed Set  "Taking the facial features of a man he had saved in his tenth form as a reminder that the Doctor saves people, the Twelfth Doctor has struggled to come to terms with his inner demons since regeneration. Outwardly brusque, the Twelfth Doctor is rarely seen without Clara Oswald at his side, keeping him in check. The pair are sometimes aided by the unorthodox Paternoster Gang. The Twelfth Doctor has faced perennial foes such as Daleks and Cybermen while overcoming other, newer adversaries – armed with little more than his sonic sunglasses, an electric guitar and his 'attack eyebrows'... Pictures not yet available This box contains the following unpainted pewter miniatures: The Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswald, Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint, Strax and 5 plastic bases for use in the Into the Time Vortex game."

This offers economic buildings with high detail which are both easy to assemble and paint. Thanks to the nature of the kits the detail of the resin can be painted prior to assembly - so no more tricky bits!

“The Jacobite rising of 1745 was an attempt by Charles Edward Stuart to regain the throne of Britain for the exiled House of Stuart. It occurred during the War of the Austrian Succession when most of the British Army was in Europe. Charles Stuart, known as "Bonnie Prince Charlie" or "the Young Pretender", sailed to Scotland and raised the Jacobite standard at Glenfinnan in the Highlands of Scotland. He was supported by a gathering of Highland clans who promised their men to the cause. The march south began with an initial victory at Prestonpans. The Jacobite army, now in bold spirits, marched onwards to Carlisle, over the border in England. When it reached Derby, soldiers were recalled from the Continent and the Jacobite army retreated north to Inverness where the last battle on Scottish soil took place on a nearby moor at Culloden. The Battle of Culloden ended with the final defeat of the Jacobites and with Charles Edward Stuart fleeing with a price on his head before sailing to France.”

As it is designed to carry humans in safety its armour is a mix of kinetic shields and fixed emission hyperlight type armour combined with a composite armoured transport shell. This plastic kit comes with the C3T7 Transporter Drone and 2 accompanying drones (Can be used as Spotter, Shield or Batter drones).
