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.

Indians & Banditos

Well the title says it all. Another top up of kit for the Old West  , which  rounds off the figure collection and provides all the various elements required for the the "Serenity Campaign".

So first up  the natives from the Northern Indian Territory - these are the  factor that will unite all the various factions, and of course they will be happy to cause trouble at any time. These lads are by "Artizan Designs"

Coming up from the South we also have a nefarious band of "Banditos". These are by Knuckleduster (as is the casualty)

And some transport for the Man with No Name

So a few more items left to sort out, some more unmounted horses, wounded horses,few more wagons
and i think it will be finished


  1. Nice work, the ponchos look great!

  2. Yep, damn good all round. I like the Northern Territory guys the best.

  3. It is a great feeling when you just have to top and tail a few pieces to complete a collection.
    What a collection it is too, not just all those figures and buildings but that fantastic train as well.

    1. Thanks Pat, sure is... I keep finding extra little bits n bobs.I have had to stop myself getting extra train stuff!

  4. A lovely selection Dave, particularly like the war paint and detail on the ponchos - superb Sir!

  5. A fantastic group of models, Dave. Your Far West is full of live!!!

    1. Cheers Paul - took a bit of playing with and not entirely sure i was with the end result - but they are certainly good enough for gaming!

  9. Very authentic Dave, love those Mexican patterns...


Work in hand


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.
