Red Terror by VoteDave Red Terror by VoteDave
It has been suggested that one of the (many) reasons for such a negative reaction to the New Paradigm Daleks was that we only saw one of each different colour, meaning that when lined up they looked like a rainbow and/or an attempt to sell toys. However, had they shown more than one of each, for example, an army of red drones who all looked the same (in the same way that we tend to only see bronze drones all the time), then they would not have looked so much like the Power Rangers.

So, I took my previous pic [ votedave.deviantart.com/art/Ne… ] of the Paradigm Daleks, and turned them all into Drones, just to see how they would have looked if they’d all been the same colour.

Personally, I like the coloured hierarchy of Dalek society, and wish we could see more of it. If Moffat had stuck to his guns and filled the Dalek Parliament in “Asylum of the Daleks” with identical red Drones, I think he could have got away with the Paradigms.

they really do look superb! I for one are fed up with the current bronze daleks, they need to either repaint them or bring this design back!

I agree that the bronze Daleks could do with an overhaul for the Chibnal era. I quite like the design, but perhaps if they just gave them a new colour scheme; personally I'd like a silver/gunmetal grey look to them. And perhaps, like we saw with the Paradigm Daleks, other colours for more senior Daleks, along the lines of what we saw in the Cushing films.

Don't know if you've ever read a graphic novel featuring the 11th Doctor called 'The only good Dalek', but that one featured a lot of the red Drone Daleks.

I do indeed remember that graphic novel! :) (Smile) 

I recall reading it and looking forward to similar TV stories featuring the Paradigm Daleks. Alas, it was not to be.
