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.

And the winner is...

me apparently,

Thanks to that kind Mr Awdry over at the wonderfully eclectic and frequently inspirational 28mm Victorian Warfare  who has nominated me for this "blog-o-sphere" recognition. Cheers Michael.




Now i just need to find out what it all means.

But in the mean time , some of you may remember the hearse i completed a little while ago - well I eventually found a figure I liked to use for a driver - complete with rifle at hand to ease his journey to "Boot Hill". I needed to chop his legs of and remake them.





 There have been a few cowboy games of late and I will get some write up's posted shortly when i get the photo's sorted.


Some comparison shot of various civilians for the guy on the LAF
 Black Scorpion, Blue Moon, Artizan, and Knucklduster (the unpainted)

  2. Congrats on the award. The fact that a quiet lurker like me comes back (eventho there's cowboys all over the place, and oh I don't like them!) is a certain sign of quality.

    Keep it up!

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
10mm ACW, 28mm Stradiots

On the PREPATION table.
ACW Terrain, Egyptian and Sudanese troops for the Sudan

In the PLANNING
Death in the Dark continent stuff
Pulp Alley
