Picking up those brushes again.

Hi and welcome to the occasional mutterings of Dave Doc, a military modeller and some time gamer. Gaming and model making has given me a real education, History & Geography(obvious really), Artistry, Politics, Economics, Logistics, Project Management -you try building miniature armies without the last 3.

I will use the blog to record my creations & the odd occasion I actually do some gaming.

I have always been inspired by the aesthetic side of gaming. Playing on well constructed terrain using excellently painted units is always a joy.

Out of here for a bit

It's pay back time for a productive winter. So apologies to the various bloggers I follow and interact with, I am only checking in infrequently. I shall continue the daily plate spinning activities over the summer period.

So normal blogging will be interrupted for a period.


Thanks to those who have enquired over my wellbeing.. It's appreciated!

But as Arnie said.. I'll be back.

Wargame Bloggers Quarterly #4

The very latest issue is now out. Filled of course with some fine eye-candy. Just click on the picture!

Work in hand

The RULES!

No more than 3 things on the PAINTING table at once. Nothing new added until something is finished.

PREPARATION work is done when I don't fancy detail painting. Cleaning up, converting, undercoating etc.

PLANNING is expressions of interest or things that have inspired me to be created with no definite timescale as yet.


On the PAINTING TABLE
10th Hussar for the Sudan

On the PREPATION table.
Naval brigade.
CamelCorps.


In the PLANNING
120 Mahdists.
