Steampunk Dalek!

Matthew Badham and the Forbidden Planet International blog have discovered this fab Victorian Dalek via Boing Boing, the creation of Promus-Ka also put this short animated clip on YouTube, complete with silent movie-style caption cards proclaiming “exterminate!”.

The artist describe the animation as a short CG animation project by MechMaster (www.mechmaster.co.uk), based on a design “Promus” created a few years back.

Although the Dalek would I imagine surely fast run out of fuel with the level of armament in use, it’s a fun design. You can download desktop backgrounds here (Standard) and here (Widescreen).
