Charity Project

On a Dr Who  forum someone posted about a set of head casts for custom projects, for charity
The charity provides food packages for struggling food banks and the like so for a donation you can purchase some casts of doctor who heads unavailable in the CO toy range in 13 scale 
not a opportunity to be overlooked ,Malcolm aka baby jelly was the sculptor Mark aka peladon the caster 
There was naturally a long list and i waited a few months for mine and because of delay got a bonus surprise added,now there is customer service for you free en gratis to boot
There was a Large Candyman figure for £25 but somehow didnt grip me ,still thinking about it 
But i opted for the Haemovore head  
Candy Man 


the cast heads
there was few to choose from ,Primored from Inferno and female Haemovore as well as Male 

Still unsure about purchasing candy man  its money i don't have and room that docent exist so will think on
So as due to CO neglecting the 80's ,realy go count how many 80s baddies you have besides Daleks and Cybermen ,and it being my era i really would like to build some stuff from it and if this is only way to go,so be it 

Its a shame as so many great monsters and designs came out of the 80s from the Deamon in Battlefield the Heamavore ,Robot clowns that kill phycotic robot of a bus conductor the Rani and Tetraps , and the Terilitples to name a few 
i doubt we will ever see much 
so in period costume my heamovre,i sculpted hands did the paint, made a mess dirty down  and really cool thing glows in the dark a eerie blue and the eyes to
It is a cheapo vampire boy couple of quid and my new head ,look i went for was just old.centuries old  so skull exploded showing brain all mottled under it ,swollen head puffy face ,yes im sick i know 

so what about my extras?

Zoe head and Auton head ,
Auton Spearhead from Space 1970 and Terror of the Autons 1971 ,the figure available in a ridiculous overpriced box set with stuff i don't want, so this is a bit of a god send ,so the body for the Auton is a lazlo,yes i must be actually the only one person who found a use for this figure got for a pound from forbidden planet 
problem didn't realize is he is short like 5 foot tall short ,my excuse is the factory was running out of plastic ,head and body was a full repaint and sculpted a scarf and the head was painted and done with various shades and glossed over

Zoe 1968/69 the second doctor companion not one i would buy personally ,given to me free, ill model the heck out of it ,
this was a hard one to paint and as black and white stories tad difficult to find color reference and i need a body ,could not find a cat suit so used the "Invasion" Pictures i found and a Star Trek body and sculpted a dress /pinafore and all that was needed like blouse collars etc was sculpted on and  a lot of paint done over a week 
All the usual suspects washes shading i don't want to do half a job 

so there you go my latest creative output and im very pleased with what i have
