I'm pleased with my drop ship as it looks a little home made and so ties in very nicely to the old 80's Dr Who look. I kept it quite stark and simple and didn't try to cover it with markings and decals. The Cyber-race I thought wouldn't worry about such things.
There is a nice Cyberman logo from the very early years I could have put onto the doors but chose not to in the end, choosing the simple look. I just let the silver colour say it all.

Last week I got the chance to cobble together some French gear and fight for Napoleon. It was great fun too. Although my group is not a 'French' one, with a few greatcoats and the odd shako we became a fighting French Line regiment.
Of course over here in England, everybody wants to be a redcoat or a member of the 95th Rifles, so the poor old French regiments need all the help they can get. I love playing French because you get to wear a shako!
The pictures were all take by Ian Timothy and Sarah Ford.

Now, last week on a trip down town, I ended up buying a DR Who Cyberman magazine. It celebrated Cybermen though out Doctor Who over the years. Now I love Cybermen, well the crap 80's ones anyway, so enjoyed flicking through it and seeing how things have developed over the years.
Well, it inspired me to get back on my Cyberman war game project and I wasted no time in chopping up more plastic Cybermen to make into casualties for the game.
However, I also started to think about some kind of landing craft for them. I did loads of research on line about Cyberships and it didn't turn up a lot of detail. Well, I thought I had better grab some of those Shampoo bottles and make one. So I did and very enjoyable it was too.

I based it on the early Manchester's regiment so there is plenty of variety in the uniforms to give it that early war look. Some even have the latest red coats, there is also plenty of Parliament grey in there too. A fun project this one and something I'm sure to pick up again before too long.
