Thanks both! That cape really does work well doesn't it? I sidelined it for use with a real Ainley but alas, maybe next year. It nicely conceals the Pertwee body underneath and - among his other incarnations, makes him fit in more due to it's color. If I did Deborah, I would've retired to my own 1:1 replica of Tracy Island to annoy my Polynesian neighbors with very load music :lol: (in all seriousness, I wouldn't sell him, even if by some miracle I did find get).

It would've been his birthday I hear today! So first up, Ainley with my other TV Master's

Still not convinced in the face...I think it's the eyebrows..,

And I got some stuff in the post! So first up, Kroton!
Image
Now I left the paint a little unfinished as the entire Cyberman is pretty playworn and, rather than repaint the whole chap I thought the rougher paint's a little more sympathetic with his current "weathering" So, sooo great to have this team finished, though of course I'm now thinking about Destrii...

While I'm chuffed to add Kroton to my shelf, it's not as good as having got this team done:
Image
Technically, technically a custom, as he was cockeyed and I repainted his eyes, was tempted to do the eyebrows but I'm not that crazy :lol: Can't believe I have a season 7 set up now..

Image
And finally, Sarah from Pyramids! Now, two things, I know the bowtie is inaccurate but I both quite liked it, and, that outways the effort required to take it off and to make it look good in my opinion. I also think I went overboard on the eyeliner, in an effort to disguise the factory paint smears on my original and to make her younger... My thinking was, CO have to make a young SJ next year, and regardless if its the Genesis look or this, I can just retire her to a PoM setup!

Wait I share a birthday with Anthony Ainley? I never knew this, does that mean I'm also an evil genius with a penchant for velvet? :lol:

Nice line up of Masters, a gallery of evil, nice to see Ainley in better light. I don't think I've properly seen your Liz before, it's amazing! The likeness is incredible, what head did you use? And the SJ is great too, looks nice alongside Pyramids Tom.

Yes. However, you are also a silliboi with no shoes.

Actually Deb kindly returned my shoes to me today. Sure they were covered in lemonade and cheese, but it's the thought that counts. I shall treasure them forever as a reminder of our historic concert.

The birthdays were actually yesterday so if Dan’s birthday is today then he’s out of luck.
