Warlord Games Doctor Who Range Update

With Thanks to www.warlordgames.com

Last year we announced that Warlord Games had secured the licence to produce a miniatures game based on the BBC’s enormously popular TV series, Doctor Who. Since then we’ve been tirelessly researching episodes both old and new, sculpting miniatures and working back and forth with the BBC to ensure the results are completely authentic.

Our licence covers not just the latest series of Doctor Who but encompasses all of the Doctors, their companions and their foes, spanning more than fifty years – so look out for long scarves and jelly babies as well as Sonic Sunglasses!

The first releases are now available, with lots more on the way. The models are high quality pewter castings, officially approved by the BBC. Our forthcoming range will also include plastic Daleks,Cybermen and UNIT troopers, as well as many more pewter figures.

Into The Time Vortex Box Game

Our first game, Into The time Vortex, will be released in early 2017 and will feature Daleks V Cybermen. The Doctor and his various companions all have a role in setting the scenario, objectives and the special rules for the game. Additional releases introduce many of the Doctor’s foes and allies, each with their own unique characteristics.

The gameplay allows for three different levels of play, ranging from the harsh environment of the Battle, through the world of the Adventure and finally allowing you to take part in an Episode. Each level of play has its own challenges, as dictated by eight scenarios that come with the game. The Doctor and his companions all have key roles in the scenarios and have their own rules that add to the experience. The rules booklets are simple to use. The basic game uses Battle cards that can be played to enhance your own plans or thwart those of your enemies.

There are also clearly laid out Faction Recruitment cards that detail the forces being used, their individual weapons and abilities, plus generic and character specific Adventure cards that may be used to create more advanced versions of the game. In addition, a set of Event cards can be found in the box, providing the means to weld all the aspects of the game together and take part in the type of adventures that make the TV programme what it is.

The initial release consists of everything you need to play, including specially created plastic miniatures of two of The Doctor’s iconic foes, the Daleks and the Cybermen. There are 12 ‘snap fit’ miniatures for each of these factions, plus the Cybermen sprue includes six Cybernates that can aid their larger brethren. Of course, no Doctor Who based game is complete without The Doctor himself, so you will also find a miniature of the 12th Doctor, ready to take part in the action.

One boxed set, three ways to play! But that’s not all, as there are a number of further releases planned which will add more miniatures, cards and opportunities to gain victory over your opponent. New factions, Companions and additional Doctors will become available over time, so the game can keep growing, as will your collection of finely crafted pewter and plastic heroes and villains.

      Well, I will be using Games Workshop/Citadel paints, but you could also use Army Painter or Vallejo.
      Colourswise, for the Cybermen you want a medium silver over the black basecoat, some light silver over the top, a black wash to pick out the details, and then more light silver over the top.
      For the Daleks, a dark bronze over the black basecoat, followed by lighter bronze/gold, plus a brown wash, then pick out the darker details with bronze, and few with gold. Paint the appendages black/silver afterwards.

    The cyberman collectors set is now available on the Warlord Games website for £30. Not bad to be honest.

      For some reason, they only appear in the Into the Time Vortex site, not on the main Warlord Games page, strangely.

    Shouldn’t the return of doctor mysterio set be under the current releases page or has it not yet been released?

      They’re intended for wargames, role-playing games and collectors alike. They all look superb so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing all of those that they’ve listed. Been looking forward to these figures since they were first mentioned on wargame websites more than a year ago.
