There is no sign of the Daleks I ordered on 13 Oct, but as the order that arrived today (which I placed on 28 Oct) included Davros, I feel I can raise my self-imposed moratorium on this post.
Now, I knew that the colour of Daleks indicates a heirarchy, and although I'm not a rivet-counter, I wanted to get it right. Do you think that there might be information on t'Internet about Dalek colour schemes? Boy, is there!*
An evening's pottering about told me the BTD's Dalek is suitable for models between 'Evil of the Daleks' and 'Remembrance of the Daleks' (ie, 1967-1988). Also, the hierarchy isn't as marked as I remember it (the more colourful ones - including "legendary 'red-top'" - are from the Peter Cushing movies).
So, if and when I get around to painting them, I shall go for one of the following schemes for the drones**:-
|'The Chase' (1967)|
|'Death to the Daleks' (1974)|
|'Genesis of the Daleks' (1975)|
However, rather than just going for a 'Black Top' as a leader, I couldn't resist this guy...
As is no doubt obvious, this is the Dalek Supreme from 'Planet of the Daleks' (1973).
