My first project will be based on teh Fourth Doctor story Robot
Robot was the first Tom Baker story and featured him and his companions with the aid of UNIT pitted against the Scientific Reform Society and the Titled Robot!
The Scientific Reform Society or SRS led by the dominating and ruthless Hilda Winters presented as twist on the Nazis, a paramilitary group bent on world dominion but fuelled on the belief that the intellectually superior/scientists should rule.
The Story allows the creation of an interesting force to counter the UNIT troops with the bonus of the giant Robot itself while the story provides bunkers and scientific Laboratory, SRS rallies and warehouses as terrain inspiration.
The science/logic angle could also be used to easily create other stories and ties in other classic Doctor Who villains like the Cybermen
Hilda Winters and henchman Jellico in full SRS regalia.
The SRS troop figures are repainted Soviet NKVD troops from the Black Tree Designs WW2 range while the figure of Hilda Winters was from a Pulp heroin set from Pulp figures (the set had several other uniformed figures which i plan to use as Hilda's daughter and other female SRS members)
The Strong green will help to differentiate them from UNIT figures

Professor Kettlewell and R1 Robot.
Both from Black Tree Designs. The Robot has had some conversion, I extended the lower legs to give it more height.
SRS and R1 Robot
In the story the Robot is made from living metal and expands. The larger figure is a collectable resin piece made by Eaglemoss. The figures has been rebased and repainted
