be interested in Doctor Who miniatures for a while, but only just got around
in painting them up.
There have been a few company's who had the licence
to produce Doctor Who miniatures. Harlequin miniatures did do a great
range before they went out of business. But the good news is that
Black Tree Design has still got
stocks (through now very low) of the Harlequin Miniatures range and also they do
sometimes come up on eBay.
Also there is a range of collectable toys
miniatures based on the new Doctor Who series, called Doctor Who Micro
Universe. They are about the same scale of the Harlequin miniatures, but
they are now out of production (2009) and can be found in bargain bins and
Citadel Miniatures (Games Workshop) back in the 1980s had a
range of 25mm Doctor Who miniatures and they sometimes do come up on eBay.
Also the BBC children magazine, Doctor Who
Adventures has a free toy in each issue, sometimes the toy is the
right scale for 28mm. A new Dalek toy (sometimes know as a idalek) has been
produced which is the right scale, about once a year they come with
the magazine or check ebay.
Doctor Who Miniatures Game
The owner of this web site has developed a complete rules system called "Doctor Who
Miniature Game" for
downloading, with additional downloads for monsters and scenarios.
The rules are very highly recommended because they try to recreate the
Doctor Who's stories and not just a set of short them up rules. The 2nd edition is now available to
download and there is also a news group to discuss the rules.
Doctor Who Invasion Earth
Doctor Who Invasion Earth is the only set of commercial wargames rules
published for Doctor Who, now out of print.
Matakishi's Tea House
The owner of this web site has developed many rules systems, including a set
Invasion, which he has now developed profiles for Doctor Who
The Wonderful World of Nozza
The owner of this web site has developed profiles for the "Chain Reaction
and "5150" rules, including Doctor Who (Chain Reaction 3 is now available to
download for free form Two Hour
The South London Warlords
games club have developed their own rules, "War of the Daleks". Worth
There are now many
great 28mm miniatures manufactures that you can find additional miniatures
from, to enhance your Doctor Who Games.
I can recommend for UNIT troops the "Mo-Fo Falklands" British Troops from
Gripping Beast, because they are
a good match with the Harlequins UNIT miniatures. but if you want
Ultra Modern miniatures for UNIT then check out
The Assault Group.
For vehicles for UNIT , check out
Sands Models and
For Resistance fighters, check out the WWII resistance fighters from Black Tree Design and
Bolt Action Miniatures (now
owned by Warlord Games).
Also check out "The Geezers ('Shut it')" range from
Killer B Games, some could be
Gripping Beast also got
some very interesting miniatures from Woodbine Design (TWDC
Specials), very useful if you want to run a "Family of Blood" scenario.
Crooked Dice have also
produced some very interesting miniatures, once you seen them you probably
will want them.
Heresy Miniatures have
also got some very useful miniatures, check out their Sci-Fi range for "Dr
Hugh McCrimmon", "Dr Masterson", "The Inspectors" and a few others. Also from their
fantasy range the "Giant Slugs" could be used as the maggots from "The Green
have also some useful miniatures,
"Maria (HFA005)", that could be easy be converted into "Rose" by changing
the gun into a mobile telephone.
Black Cat Bases has got a large range of miniatures, one could be
used as "Captain Jack".
Artizan Designs and
Copplestone Castings are
worth checking out, and there are many other companies which you could use
their historical miniatures to recreate a Doctor Who story.
This is pretty obverse, the entire range of BBC videos, DVDs and any
Doctor Who books with great pictures. I can recommend a series of books; Doctor Who, Monsters and Villains,
Aliens and Enemies, Creatures and Demons (now combined into Doctor Who: The
Ultimate Monster Guide (2009)) (List
of reference books).
