Dr Who

This year saw the creation of the 11th Dr Who.  Perfect for a football team!

I didn't like watching Dr Who when I was a child as it scared the life out of me!  I think it was the Daleks that scared me the most.  

Here's my attempt at Dr Who throughout the ages.

Star Trek

"Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before"

I'm not a massive Trekkie, but I do enjoy the original Star Trek films and watched the Next Generation series when I was a kid.  Continuing with the space theme following on from the Star Wars post, I thought it would be fun to paint some Star Trek characters.

Here's how it turned out

L-R: Scotty, Bones, Cpt Kirk, Spock

L-R Worf, Cpt. Jean-Luc Picard, Lt Riker
L-R Data, Deanna Troi, Dr Beverly Crusher, Geordi La Forge

Star Wars

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away........

.........I decided to paint Star Wars figures!  I love Star Wars. It's been one of my favourite films (if not THE favourite) since I was a kid.  Whenever I mention to people that I paint Subbuteo figures, the first thing they all say is "you should paint a Star Wars one".  When I say everyone, I mean EVERYONE!  I've lost count of the amount of times I've been asked to do this.  Well here it is.  It's the only time I'm painting these figures so enjoy the pictures!

L-R - Luke Skywalker, Obi-wan Kenobi, Princess Leia

L-R - Han Solo, Chewbacca

L - R - Boba Fett, C3P0, Lando Calrissian

L - R - Dave the Stormtrooper, Darth Vader, Trev the Stormtrooper

My latest order is for a team of wrestlers.  Well I haven't watched any sort of wrestling since Wrestlemania in about 1992, so I didn't have a clue who half of the wrestlers were that i needed to paint up.

Hopefully they've turned out ok!

L - R: Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Triple H

L - R: Terry Funk, Bobby Lashley, Rey Mysterio, Shawn Michaels

L - R: Rick Rude, Undertaker, Brett "The Hitman" Hart
All 11 wrestlers
If you fancy a team of wrestlers (I can attempt to do whichever ones are your favourites) then email me.  The email address is at the top left of this blog.
