Cybermen were a “race” of cybernetically augmented humanoid. They varied greatly in design, with different factions throughout time and space. The two major groups, from which all other known versions derived, were the Mondasian Cybermen, which originated on the planet Mondas – Earth’s twin planet in the Doctor’s Universe – and the Cybermen created by Cybus Industries, which originated on Earth in an alternate universe.
They attacked Earth on many occassions, providing a lot of potential for gaming scenarios.
Back in the 1990s Harlequin Miniatures produced a licensed range of 28mm metal miniatures and I have three Cybermen. They are Mondasian Cybermen from the original series rathe than the new versions that arrived on our screens in 2006.
The first thing I did was to “cement” the models to their bases using some Green Stuff.
I then gave the models a white undercoat using Citadel Skull White spray.
After the undercoat I gave the models a basecoat of Citadel Boltgun Metal.
I then gave the models a wash of Citadel Shade: Nuln Oil. This added shadow and depth to the model.
For the bases I started off with a basecoat of Citadel Base: Castellan Green. I then used some railway flock, combined with a tiny amount of Woodland Scenics foliage. I finished the bases off with some Citadel Mordheim Turf.
That’s the models done. I think I would like some more, as I am not sure if three are enough.
