Covenant of Antarctica Fleet - Final pictures.

Hi,
      well its finally done.  Sorry about the lack of updates over the past couple of weeks as I have been having a few health issues.  Didn't stop me painting for long so I've completed the CoA fleet.

Picked a more modern camo scheme as I think it suits CoA.  Tried to make it something that would blend in with ice bergs and break up the outline of the ships.  Quite a horde of small ships but backed up by the Skyfortress.  Got to be one of my favoutite models for Dystopian Wars.

Enough of the chat and on with the pictures.

U.N.I.T - Final pictures

Hi,
     here are the final pictures of the third Doctor, Jo Grant, The Brigadier and U.N.I.T troops.

A real pleasure to paint.  I am a long term Dr Who fan but these are the first figures I've painted.  Been watching since Destiny of the Daleks so you can guess at how long.  Also a bonus was that the sculpt of the figures are fom one of my favourite stories, Day of the Daleks.

Plan to use them for 7TV first and then the Dr Who miniatures game.

So heres the pics.
