Daleks Added to Dr. Who Miniatures Game


EXTERMINATE!!! – on the tabletop that it. Take a look at the plastic Daleks coming to Warlord’s Dr. Who minis game.

Warlord has teamed up with the BBC to produce Doctor Who: Into the Time Vortex – a 38mm scale miniature game set in the Who-verse.

Warlord Games is absolutely delighted to have secured the licence to produce a miniatures game based on the BBC’s enormously popular TV series, Doctor Who. So delighted we might just have a celebratory jelly baby. As lifelong Doctor Who fans ourselves, we are extremely pleased to have the chance to bring this iconic series to the tabletop with a game system you all know and love as well as the official range of miniatures to complement it.

The licence covers not just the latest series of Doctor Who but encompasses all of the Doctors, their companions and their foes. So, expect to see Sea Devils as much as Weeping Angels, Leela as much as Martha Jones, and a long, brightly coloured scarf as much as a fez (fezzes are cool, by the way…).

The starter game will offer different modes of play including Battle mode for straight up fights and Adventure mode which offers story-driven missions. They have core sets lined up, and some monsters with more in the works.

They recently revealed the Dalek models for the game – and they look pretty sweet. These models snap together with no glue needed.

    There was a dr who game that didn’t have daleks?

    • orionburn

      There was but the last version you played featured The Silence, so you don’t remember.

    • Bran D

      The real question is how do you add Daleks without them being as OP as they are supposed to be?

      • Talos2

        Relative to the doctor?

        • Bran D

          Even the doctor was horrified when the daleks came back. Not to mention he’s been killed by them.

      • Xodis

        You only give them a single Dalek and let the opposing player take everyone else…including Cybermen lol

        “…We would destroy the Cybermen with one Dalek! You’re superior in only one respect…..You are better at dying….”

        • Bran D

          Thats one of my favorite scenes…Identify yourself…no, you identify yourself…was a great little dialogue lol.

          • Xodis

            Yeah, everytime I think of it I have to go watch it lol

    • Kritarion

      I came here to post this.

  • euansmith

    The way that they eye-stalk fits in to its socket is rather clever.

  • Xodis

    Holy crap! I missed this?!?! My wife is going to be PIISSSSEEEDDD

    • JPMcMillen

      It’s not that surprising. While Warlord may be making the game, they aren’t allowed to sell it in their online shop to US buyers. You actually have to go to that Doctor Who: Into the Time Vortex link to purchase them.

      • Severius_Tolluck

        well that explains why I didn’t know they existed. Only ones I have are from way back when with GW making them!

        • JPMcMillen

          Lucky you. I always regret I didn’t get them (or the Cybermen) back when GW were selling them.

          • Severius_Tolluck

            If you act fast I think there is a few on ebay still from time to time.

  • Douglas Burton

    Wait. Did the article say this is 38mm?

    • JPMcMillen

      Yes, another game that fell victim to size creep. What’s going to suck for it’s player base will be the lack of any appropriate sized terrain. I know there’s a company that makes terrain for the 35mm Marvel/DC mini’s, but there’s only so much of that available. Given all the places the Doctor travels, they really should have made the mini’s in a scale that was compatible with 28/30mm mini’s as there plenty of it around that can represent anyplace, anywhere in time from the ancient past to the distant future.

  • Lord Elpus

    I still love, play and paint the old Harlequin/ black tree design game.. I might just use these rules with the other miniatures..

  • Kaylum Dicks

    What, no Matt Smith Dr?

    • Spacefrisian

      Doctor John Hurt will be twice as good now.

    • Xodis

      Probably trying to figure out who the 5th model in his set will be. He only has the 2 Ponds and River, so they either need to throw in Cpt Jack or Rory (which doesn’t fit), or Lady TARDIS into the box since they put Claire in the 12th Doctor’s box.

  • Sleeplessknight

    Exterminate! Annihilate! Destroy!

  • Emperor’s Champion

    i just want to paint some of these right now.
