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.

The "Cooler King"

Catching up on "little distraction painting" posts this week.  So cue the music to "The Great Escape".

Here we have The Cooler King, the Scrounger and the Surveyor. These are from Ebob's Great Escape range (you don't say...). There are various other prisoners, stooges, guards & goons available. You can also download the various buildings in paper pdf format. One of the reasons I love this hobby is the sheer variety of figures available.  These are beautiful sculpts.






Right now where can i get a motorbike from....



I have not watched it in an age - might just be weekend viewing. Wonder if he will get over the wire this time.

  3. Superb painting on these Dave.
    Empress Miniatures do motorbikes with their modern range, Afgahns. I don't know if the figures are seperate or if they are a one piece casting?

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
Sudan stuff

On the PREPATION table.

In the PLANNING
WW2 & modern micro armour
