Hmm, didn't really expect this one. Not much info there yet tho. It'll be interesting to see the mechanics.

Ha, you beat me to post this! I'm intrigued to see whee this goes, as it looks to be along the lines of the existing game - did Warlord buy up the existing game to use as a framework?

The existing game is a fan-made one by Crooked Dice.  Did they ever have an official licence?

Black Tree Design no longer have the licence, but they are supposedly allowed to finish selling their existing casts.  They seem to find new casts in a corner of the workshop every few years...

Plastic Daleks...  :D

Methinks I'll be placing an order at Crooked Dice sooner rather than later. Say no more...

All new game, all new figures. Show your support of the 'Stalwarts' by buying at CD and Heresy, plus even Black Tree and Who North America who kept the torch alive.

And be ready for the WOW! Effect from Warlord...

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what happens to all the "not xxx" figures. I think I have all the ones I want, but I'd probably better check...

I have mixed feelings about this.  We have been running a Who game with home baked rules and will likely continue to do so.  I would like to have some modern Cybermen and some well done modern Silurians.  I was under impressed by the Terminator Game miniatures.  This was especially the case with the tiny, resin, expensive character figures which didn't seem to look like anyone.

Interesting development. I predict the quiet demise of Beyond the Gates of Antares.
I am all in for modern Plastic Daleks. The original Citadel ones were actually pretty good but undersized next to modern figs.

I really like the Crooked Dice and Heresy figures. I might have to order the ones I don't have, just in case. I hope the Warlord ones don't end up too over-caricatured. Plastic cybermen and daleks must surely be on the cards. It seems like a shrewd move for Warlord; I had no interest in Beyond the Gates of Anteres but I've already subscribed to the Dr Who newsletter. I imagine I'm not alone!

Between this and "Doctor Who: The Complete History"  ( http://www.dwcompletehistory.com ), I think I can wave goodbye to the concept of "disposable income" for the forseeable future.

I quite like the DWMG we already have but will keep an eye on this one.

Very interesting. It seems almost disloyal to look forward to this when others have kept this going for years with professional quality free rules. I may keep to the free rules but use the figures to expand.
There is a limit to how far you can go with "not" sculpts, and I definitely want a box of plastic Cybermen.
Warlord will have paid a fair bit for the licence so we can expect lots of goodies.


And a box of plastic 70's UNIT troops.
