Custom Figure: 2005 Emperor Guard Dalek

Since there are a few Daleks from seasons 1 to 4 of Dr Who I've given up hope of Character Options ever releasing, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands. Using a cheap new series Dalek bought from B&M Bargains (if you're in the UK I recommend checking out your nearest one....cost me £3.99!) I went about creating a type of Dalek that made a very brief appearance in 2005's Parting of the Ways. The dome was painted using Citadel's Chaos Black paint, and the scanner arm appendage was made using the plunger arm (with the plunger cut off), a silver ball accessory from a Robot Wars figure, and paper clips and a key ring for the wire structure. Scratch-building isn't my greatest talent, but I like to think this came out okay.

Once my other NS Dalek arrives I'll be turning my attention to a far more ambitious project...
