If we've ever had any doubts they're all dispersed now! Starburst - the best magazine ever. Most concise. Has the best taste! Best design. Best articles*.

Well, another year gone. Next year will be fun. We promise! Ashley's got a great set of tools for his modelworking for Christmas we overhear, and the editing is nearly done. We're also apparentlyup for being in another magazine it seems, albeit just a column. So we'll dig out some unseen images for that. Thanks for everyone who emailed us about the Starburst piece.
And there's more.... (but you'll have to wait). We'll say no more for now.
Just sorting through a few things and found these pics from November (08!) in which you can see the new back-filler models being built by Ashley. He's managed to find a few battered Sevans kits however he feels it's more in the spirit of Devious to create new from scratch. So you can see the new shoulder section castings. These were cast from a new build of a shoulder section using silicon moulds and then cast in resin some with a glass fibre tissue mat and some with glass fibre traditional strands.
Hope you are all out there doing something special for this year's Comic Relief. Even if it's just putting money in a tin.
The word "just" in that last sentence - just putting money in a tin is maybe all you can do - but it's the "just" thing to do.
... is still continuing - reaching a climax in fact. The Two and a Halfth Doctor is still around (having escaped the multi-Doctor mind meld that's currently happening, and then there;s the....) go and see if you haven't already! We've been following this for ages as it is truly inspired and with excellent characterisation and dialogue. And of course they have Doctor Two and a Half who looks mighty familiar!
In a long line of excuses for the lack of progress in the modelwork department, Ashley has now said that his recent construction of a bookcase and matching radiator cover for a room in his palatial abode is the main reason why the dalek models are late in delivery! Not believing him we asked for proof, and here is the offending bookcase - built from scratch at a cost of around three hundred quid. Blimey - seems a lot but then a piece of furniture to buy at that size would be three times that, and the fact that he has built it himself seems to be something he is proud of.
...would be good to have of course, and with luck we'll be able to supply you with some soon... (suppose it depends on what you find exciting). Until then we'll have a few (new?) gratuitous shots of daleks to keep you all happy!
Meanwhile Ashley's been rummaging around our huge archive to bring you some new(ish) images (some hitherto unpublished) to celebrate the fact that it is just one month to go before the War Games is released with some 12 minutes of Devious footage on DVD...!
