Of the NSDs, so far I’ve made the “Standard” NSD with the sucker arm, the Assault Dalek with the cutting claw, an Emperor’s guard with the Multi Spectrum Scanner (as it’s called on the box) and Thay with removed panels.  I have to make the one with the syringe, another Emperor’s guard (it has something like a toasting fork) and the wrecked version of Caan.  Maybe also the opening version of Sec and the one seen in “Dalek”, since they open differently.  Perhaps one with a morph for the destruct sequence, too.  And the latest version of Davros’ chair.

That should keep me busy for a while.

i’m wondering how to alter the surface settings in this one, so that it looks the same as the original as daz obviously ignores some of the poser settings.

Ooooh, a Dalek which opens up would be amazeballs. Also cannot wait to see your model of the New Paradygm.
I also still hope one day you’ll get around the the classic era- STW Dalek from the McCoy era.

Also, a suggestion for the NSD. A Victory Dalek with gear belt, posable sucker and tea tray?

Oh yes, I forgot about the “Ironsides” Dalek.  As for the New Paradigm, there are several very good ones already available but I suppose I’ll have to do one eventually.

I have the Classic Special Weapons Dalek partly built but I really need to get it finished off.  At the moment, though, I’m more interested in making non canon stuff.

Great news, I’m still furtling with surface settings in DS to see if I can make this one look like the Poser render smile

Can you point to where the NP Daleks for Poser are hosted? I’ve found a really nice Lightwave one, but it doesn’t play well in poser. And, I trust your models over anyone else’s, as I’ve never had any hassle with your works.

I look forward to your Special Weapons Dalek and future nan-canon work (which I have to say on the record are pretty amazeballs.)

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner.  It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. 

Anyhow, there’s a New Paradigm over at Share CG, by billy-home.  There may also be a couple of others but that’s the one I use.  Billy is a great modeller and an all round good bloke so you can be sure his Daleks are all first class.

Thank you for the compliments regarding my Daleks.  You’ll be pleased to know I have a major new set in the offing which will give a ludicrous amount of variations.  I intend these to be the last in the STLB series but I’ve made them in such a way that additions and updates will be easy to incorporate.  It should also be pretty easy for end users to make their own custom additions and to that end, I’ll include a short tutorial.

Then, I guess, it’s back to the canon stuff; I’d like to get them all wrapped up and maybe make some small changes to some of the Classic models, even though I said they’d be the last versions for the 2012 package.  Oh well.

I have several other ideas for non canon Daleks which won’t fit into the STLB continuity so they’ll be standalone versions.  I am not giving anything away about ‘em but I guarantee one of them will be like nothing you’ve ever seen.

Yup.  You must have noticed my last few sets have been called STLB something or other.  It’s because they are ST Daleks (as are all my non canons), influenced somewhat by Librarian-Bot.  The stepped fender, recessed oval panel between the gunboxes, the big neck rings and some of the dome lamp styles are taken from his designs.

The next non canon Daleks will be off in a different direction so they won’t fit into that category.

BTW, billy-home is called Billy Bowers on Share CG.
