This month I have two miniatures meant to represent Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper) from Doctor Who.
First is Warlord Games' Rose Tyler from the Tenth Doctor and Companions set.
The likeness on this sculpt is excellent, but like other figures in the line the lack of exaggeration makes the faces really difficult to paint. I left out some of the clothing details but based my color choices on this picture:
I also happened to have Crooked Dice's (no longer available for obvious reasons) Daisy Taylor figure, which is obviously based on Rose as well. So I went ahead and painted her up at the same time.
The likeness is not nearly as good, but the deeper details on the face made it much easier to paint. I decided that rather than have two figures with exactly the same clothes, I would base her colors on the outfit seen below.
If you've been paying attention, you'll know that I have one more companion to paint from this set, so that will likely be my next post. I've got a lot of other figures, Doctor Who-related and not-related, that I am itching to paint, so stay tuned!
