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 boy is back...

Normal service has been resumed. The last few months have been a hectic whirl juggling a host of things resulting in little hobby time.

 Many thanks to the guys who have been in contact enquiring for my welfare, much appreciated, another great side to the blogger community.

The lead mountain has been completely topped up with a whole host of extras for the "Old West"  collection. Talking of which I am taking it out on the road again next week to Scarborough for the Wartorn show, so if you are there pop by and say hello, or pull up a chair and try your hand at "Blazing Dice" in Serenity Flatts.

I shall be back around you blogs this week catching up.

The paint desk has a project or 3 on it again , so some new creations to share shortly.

So for now will leave you with a bit of Thin Lizzy.....

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.
