Chance in a million here.

I remember in my collection of Wargames Illustrated mags there was an article with a scenario for the Doctor against the Daleks; the only thing I can remember is that the Daleks were trying to thaw out some of their frozen compatriots while the Doctor and UNIT were trying to stop them.

The article might date from the 90s. Anybody recollect that one? If some kind soul could let me know the issue number or (raises hands to heavens) would be willing to scan it for me I would be deeply, deeply grateful!

Thanks for that, Flashman! I found and ordered that one already. This was another article, probably embedded and not appearing on the cover. Like I say, my hopes aren't high on this one…

Tiny Tin Men has an excel database for many of the wargame magazines. It covers WI up to issue 259. So it should be in there.

Take a look.

And yes, I do know I am awesome.

That you are, that you are. Can't thank you enough for the lead – what a resource! Must say I'm not finding the article though…maybe my memory's off.

Thanks Scum1234. That is a great link.

Big maybe.

Miniature Wargames magazine early 2000s. I have it in a cupboard. A pain to dig out.

It had a 54mm Dalek game for salute. It had several Dalek factions and unit and Cybermen. Great photos.


This seems to be the games site.

Words are failing me. H Man, that site is about the best thing I've seen. It's all the more perfect because my own Doctor Who project is in mighty 54mm! And I had no inkling that group existed. I can't thank you enough. Really.

If you would be willing to find that mag I would:

1.) love to buy it off you

2.) pay for a scan

3.) or just know the issue number – maybe Scum's link can help there

Contact me at machaselton AT sbcglobal DOT net if we can work anything out.

Thanks again!

Found the WI article: "Containment" in issue 195. Issue found and ordered. Thanks again, Scum!
