This is the first in a series of posts on a project that I have been working on in fits and starts for years: a set of forces based on the long-running BBC program Doctor Who. My preferred rules are the excellent Doctor Who Miniatures Game (DWMG) which are available on the internet for free at: http://www.drwhominiatures.co.uk/. The website also has a lot of scenarios for both classic and new Doctor Who, and there is an active Yahoo Group for the game as well.
The first force to be posted are the Sontarans. The Sontarans are a warrior race of clones. They are one of the older villains on Doctor Who, with their first appearance in 1973's The Time Warrior and their most recent appearance was in 2008.
My Sontaran force currently consists of 2 squads of 6. Each squad has 5 clone soldiers, one armed with a laser rifle, and 1 leader. All of the miniatures are 28mm from Black Tree Design. They are mounted on slottabases, with a metal washer underneath for storage on magnetic sheeting. All were painted in fall 2010. Click on the pictures for a close-up.
