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.

Ronin #8 for Curt

I completed this lad as the entry fee for Curts 3rd Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge . The figure is by Zenit Miniatures , and is a really detailed sculpt. I wanted something with a little colour to it to draw the eye, so settled on a more muted dark colour for the armour with some of the details picked out in red, yellow and white.






So thats it for the various mixed stuff for the challenge - one for unusual entry to do over the period.

There is potentially the first show attendance of the year coming up this weekend at York , not sure if I am going or not yet - but if any of you good readers are let me know - it would be nice to arrange a meet if i get there.

  5. The detail against the dark armour works well Dave. A unit painted like this would be superb. I watched 'The Last Samurai' on Friday and seeing this little chap has got me tempted to start yet another new period.
    Cheers,
    Pat.

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

On the PREPATION table.

In the PLANNING
Death in the Dark continent stuff
