Yesteryear Feature – Harlequin Miniatures

Doctor Who 28mm Harlequin Miniatures

Harlequin Miniatures made a range of Doctor Who classic figures in 28mm scale from 1997 onwards.

These were available ready painted or just the casting to paint yourself.

The range offered just about every imaginable character that appeared in Doctor Who, some in a different pose, but it went well beyond that to include props such as Tardis Consoles, unit vehicles, the who mobile, a war machine and Bessie.

Some sets were made and many of these along with some of the figures are now highly collectable.

The Doctor Who movies are also covered. Black Tree Design took over the sales of the remaining unpainted stock.

Images of some of our own figures including and Auton, Cyberman , The 3rd Doctor, The Master and an Ogron.

A Tlotixl, Zygon and Ice warrior in close up…

All The Doctors were represented as well as companions…

An Ogron, Morbius and Auton…

The figures look at home in the extensive rage of scenery and buildings made for war games…

    I heard that warlord games recently got a license for doctor who miniatures but would black tree design keep their license?

    I’m no fan of Warhammer or anything like it, but It would be cool to spice up a game of Warhammer by throwing something from Doctor Who into it like a Dalek or something, just to make playing a game such as Warhammer abit more interesting.

      That was a different range, in a slightly different scale made by the people who made Warhammer back in the 80s.

      Two reasons, it’s part of the fun and it makes you buy their paints.
