Further to our last article with some images of the new Warlord Games Fires Of Pompeii expansion for the Exterminate Skirmih Game, we are happy to reveal the packshot which is the first of Warlord Games Exterminate Expansions to feature the NEW Doctor Who logo.
We have just managed to catch up with our friends at Warlord Games about their Doctor Who Miniatures Game range, EXTERMINATE (Available from Element Games).
Their latest 2 boxes are looking really good, we have managed to snatch some fantastic images really showing off the potential of these miniatures that are aimed both at collectors and gamers.
We start with the Mire, which are available now, then push on to the Fires Of Pompeii set due August 2018.
The Mire are a race under the leaddership of Odin in the Peter Capaldi episode of Doctor Who, The Girl Who Died.
The Warlord Games Mire Box contains 3 miniatures, 3 Mire (one without helmet) and Odin plus Exterminate Game Cards needed for use of the miniatures in the Exterminate Game.
Lead by Odin the Mire hunt down other warrior races, turning their strongest warriors into liquid, which they then drink as their ‘nectar’, feeding on their adrenaline and testosterone. In reality the Mire choose weak opponents deliberately so they can easily defeat them and thus cultivate their fearsome reputation.

Fires Of Pompeii
From Peter Capaldi’s first appearance in new Who, though he was not the title role for this one, Fires Of Pompeii saw David Tennant’s Doctor challenged by the Sibylline Sisterhood and the Pyrovile.
We are waiting on full details of these, but in the meantime check out these images of painted miniatures.

You can find out more about these and all Warlord Game’s Doctor Who ranges on their Into The Time Vortex website.
A few more exclusive pictures from Warlord Games Doctor Who ranges, including the ever popular Special Weapons Dalek.
Wargames company Warlord Games produces the 38mm figures for painters, collectors and for their wargame EXTERMINATE.
The winter range is made up the following troop types, each with just one major TV appearance to date.
Draconians, from the Jon Pertwee serial The Frontier In Space.
Movellans, enemy to the Daleks from the Tom Baker story Destiny of the Daleks. Though have had a minor appearance in the Peter Capaldi story, The Pilot.
The Special Weapon Dalek. Dripping oil, the imperial Dalek with the Steam Punk gun, rivets and visor. Seen in Remembrance of the Daleks and begging for a return this is a classic Dalek variant from the last of the Classic Doctor Who stories.
Release dates are subject to change but the Draconians should be in shops in November 2017. The Movellans should be available from in December 2017 and the Special Weapons Dalek is due out in January 2018.
Warlord Games really hit a home run with their Doctor Who Into The Vortex miniatures / skirmish game when they released it at Salute 2017.
The Warlord stand and the Exterminate core set for the game was my first point of call and first purchase of the day.
In the Exterminate! miniatures game your Cyberman and Dalek forces can recruit neutral factions, improving their chances of success and adding even more variety to your games.
These highly detailed plastic Cybermen and Dalek miniatures are ‘push-fit’ allowing them to be easily built without glue.
As well as this core set with plastic miniatures Warlord Games have an ongoing release of metal miniatures for use in the game, or for collectors / painters. Previous releases have go included Judoon, Zygons, various Doctors and Companions and a medley of monsters.
Here’s a sneak peek of two figures from the forthcoming Voyage of the Damned episode set. Astrid Peth as played by Kylie Minogue and David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor.
The other three figures from this set will be revealed shortly.
Again Warlord have captured the essence of the characters in 38mm*. With the moulded named bases these are ideal for the collector in addition to the gamer. I suspect that the gamer will be mounting these on 30mm bases for the sake of the game.
I just wish I could paint as well as the person who prepared these minis for these images.
August 2017 Warlord Doctor Who Releases
Ogrons: often used by the Daleks to do their dirty jobs
Hailing from the outer fringes of the Mutter’s Spiral, Ogrons are tall, ape-like humanoids of limited intelligence. Due to their great strength and mindless obedience, they are typically used by other species as mercenaries.
The most common employer of Ogrons were the Daleks. In Day of the Daleks, they used Ogrons to control the human population after their 22nd-century invasion of Earth.
An ordinary Viking girl killed after a battle with the alien Mire, Ashildr was resurrected by the Doctor using a Mire repair kit which was able to fix her physiology.
Now with a potentially infinite lifespan, she chose aliases such as Lady Sherade, Ash, El Dir, Alys and the Knightmare, having forgotten her original identity over the centuries.
*correction 24/8/2017 Warlord have let me know that the miniatures are 38mm scale rather than the wargame standard of 28mm, allowing for greater detail and for the figures to be more in proportion than their 28mm counterparts.
Warlord Games is to produce a new line of miniatures and games based on the legendary British comic book, 2000 AD.
The worldwide licence covers miniatures games, scenery and collectable miniatures sets based on series and characters from weekly comic, which is the home of Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Nemesis the Warlock, and a whole galaxy of characters from over 40 years.
Game development and designs are in the very early stages but initial plans are for a game based on the world of Strontium Dog, the popular futuristic Wild West-style series where mutated humans such as Johnny Alpha are forced to become bounty hunters.
Paul Sawyer, Head of Product Design at Warlord Games, says “Many of us at Warlord are ardent 2000 AD fans so the chance to take on a licence to work with the stories we grew up with and continue to avidly enjoy was something of a dream come true. We have many ideas to bring the wonderful stories from our favourite strips – old and new – to the tabletop and work had begun in earnest to do justice (pun intended) to Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Flesh, Slaine, Kingdom and many of their sister strips. If a mere Earthlet might dare to quote The Mighty Tharg, this is going to be scrotnig!”.
Keith Richardson, licensing manager for 2000 AD, said: “Knowing how many of the Warlord staff are fans of 2000 AD and seeing the wonderful craftsmanship in their work has me really excited. Together I’m positive that we will produce some truly zarjaz games!”
Warlord Games is a leading light in the tabletop miniature games industry. Warlord is currently developing games and miniatures for Doctor Who through licence from the BBC and has its own science fiction game written by legendary games developer, Rick Priestley – Beyond the Gates of Antares. Warlord has many game systems based on military history – from the award-winning World War II game produced in conjunction with Osprey Publishing – Bolt Action, to its massed battle games – Hail Caesar, Pike & Shotte and Black Powder. www.warlordgames.com
2000 AD is the legendary weekly British anthology comic and home of Judge Dredd, as well as a galaxy of original sci-fi, fantasy, and horror action stars. As well as producing innovative and provocative comics for almost 40 years, it has brought the industry some of its biggest talents, from Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and Mark Millar, to Jock, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons, and many more. Published in print and digital every Wednesday, 2000 AD is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and remains at the industry’s cutting edge. www.2000ADonline.com
In Project Z you fight to survive in the abandoned streets of a post-apocalyptic world infested by unnatural creatures hungry for your flesh. Scavenge for scarce supplies whilst battling against the dead and the living alike; there are no laws, there are no rules, only the fight.
Project Z is a skirmish wargame from Warlord Games. In this game 1 to 3 players take control of Survivors or a Street Gang fighting to survive against the environment and an ever-growing horde of Zombies. Project Z is a fast and easy to learn game containing 39 detailed self-assembly plastic models, rules, counters and specially designed dice and cards.
The game is best played on a smaller 2-3 foot table, so is great for those who would love to play a regular skirmish game but are restricted on space. Project Z will play nicely on a kitchen table.
Yes the miniatures require assembly, but in about 20 minutes of opening the core Project Z Box you are ready to start playing.
Extensive use of cards and measurement templates means that the game is quick to learn and very rewarding very quickly.
The miniatures are not exactly starter, and you do get to assemble heads, arms, weapons etc to the models which means you have a lot of control over the look of the model on the table. Painting is optional – but a very good next step for those moving from board games to more freeform world of skirmish and war games.
Project Z Core Box Contents
But the big questions is: How Many Zombies Do I Get?
Well in the core starter box you get 23 zombies, 10 survivors and 6 biker gang models. Some of the figures are clearly influenced by certain TV Shows and Movies.
Did we mention that the starter set for Project Z was just £30 (often discounted at retailers such as Element Games)
Project Z Available Expansions
There are a number of add on boxes available for Project Z at the time of writing.
Female Survivors expansion.
From the tiny little girl with an Uzi to the tennis racket wielding sports player, these survivors add character to the games and bring out the fun.
