I hadn't clicked that this may affect Sharclons...

I guess I'll be ordering some very soon indeed :o

(I reckon that they are different enough to escape the wrath of the BBC though... but I can't take the risk. I've delayed too long on a number of occasions and kicked myself :( ).

Looks like Andy thinks they might be: he's changed the Sharclon officer's skin to purple to differentiate him more - http://heresyminiatures.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_64&products_id=319 - while urging people to buy his "entirely generic" scientists while they are still available.

Well... I've bought a bunch of Sharclons now, just in case.

I wish I could have bought more but I can't afford it :(

I hope they are generic enough to escape any challenge... but I doubt it :(

I've wanted to get a Dr. Payne for a while, but the new shipping charges (£7 additional tracking surcharge for all non-UK/EU parcels) are flat-out insanity. I won't pay £20+ to get one £4 mini.

EDIT: ACTUALLY... Maybe I could ride the coattails of one of you who're planning an order while the sale's on? I'll make the thread in the Wanted section then...

Damn it! I've been deliberating all week whether to buy the alternative Hugo Solomon and a few other or risk waiting till the Battleground show in November. I just cannot see that sculpt being topped. I'm hoping for good things from Steve Saleh though.

Hiya - webstore is working fine, just some problems with the top menus. I'll be at Colours with our full range, but if there is anything specific drop me a line with what you are after, as we can't take as much stock with the range getting bigger.

It would be strange if they didn't make them the same size as every other range they do.  Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if the rulebook contained scenarios set in World War 2, the early Roman Empire and the English Civil War.  Surely it's too good a cross-marketing opportunity to miss? 

I know that it would have been effective on me.  I gave up wargaming in the early 1980s, but was drawn back to it when Harlequin put out its Doctor Who range; and despite finding 10mm attractive, I largely stuck with 28mm because I wanted everything else to be compatible with my time travellers.

One Hugo Solomon (can't risk not getting it), 2 delightful plucky assistants, a grumpy ginge and Tucker Newman ordered.

Time lift security would be nice if you could bring them to Colours, and depending on the money situation, department x box set and not doctors packs... I'm sure there are other stuff I want ;D

Have you seen the quality of Warlord metal figures? I really hope they'll at least do Daleks and Cybermen in plastic. As for characters, I don't see it as commercially valid to do plastic sets, so I hope they don't mess them up too badly.

I, for one, wouldn't mind seeing a Bolt Action mod for "battle" type games - I don't think the army list format is in any way suited to represent history, but the core mechanics seemed sound enough.

To be in any way representative and worthy of the show's spirit, though, it would need to include far more role-playing elements. Oh, and proper running rules for all those corridors.  ;D
