Warlord Games have secured the rights to a big intellectual property. They are going to be working with the BBC on a Doctor Who Miniatures Game

Doctor Who

From Warlord…

“Warlord Games is absolutely delighted to have secured the licence to produce a miniatures game based on the BBC’s enormously popular TV series, Doctor Who (back on BBC One on September 19th!). So delighted we might just have a celebratory jelly baby.

As lifelong Doctor Who fans ourselves, we are extremely pleased to have the chance to bring this iconic series to the tabletop with a game system you all know and love as well as the official range of miniatures to complement it.

The licence covers not just the latest series of Doctor Who but encompasses all of the Doctors, their companions and their foes. So, expect to see Sea Devils as much as Weeping Angels, Leela as much as Martha Jones, and a long, brightly coloured scarf as much as a fez (fezzes are cool, by the way…).”

It will be interesting to see where this goes as I wouldn’t have automatically thought about a miniatures game working for Doctor Who. Mentioning it has a game system we all known and love sounds like we’re going to get something Bolt Action themed in terms of mechanics.

I wonder if they’re going to look at a board game type deal to begin with?
