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.

Who I hear you say.. Of course I am sure you know the Doctor.

This was a special request from Andrew so i am sure he will be happy to see this chap. It's the Heresy Miniatures "Nerdlord II". Well the town is need of a new doctor.
In case you were wondering where his transport is:-

Taking advantage of the "heatwave" I also decided to knock off the first of the adobe buildings. The church of "St Miguel" for the cowboy adventures south of the Rio Grande. Welcome to the start of "St Serinidad"

It is a Sarissa Precision laser cut MDF piece. I have however completed it with a proper shingle roof - simplicity itself - available for Warbases in a pre cut A4 sheet for £2. It also has a coating of ready mix tie grout to give a proper abode effect. I found a use for all those spare clear individual trifle pots reserved by Mrs D and made window panes as well.
I shall get some better shots later this week.
There has been more work on the next part of the mine, while I wait for some bits to arrive. The second A3 board has been started, and the first has had more colour and drybrushing applied.

I have worked out a plan for lighting ,so just need to order some bits n bobs as well for that.


  1. A great looking Dr and just love the church, top work Dave!

  2. ....are you?
    Ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh

    Nice looking Doc there Dave. The church ooks pretty effective :)

  3. Very nice the Doc, and also the church.

  4. Just got the same Doctor off James Brewerton in his competition, the church is top notch work Dave!

  5. Cheers Fran. The church was actually pretty easy. It being warm helped to dry off the tile grout quickly which was a bonus.

  6. You have beeb busy Dave! Great progress all round, but I do like that church, very impressive.

    1. Indeed , it's been a productive weekend

  7. The Dr looks the great the church and mine more so.

    Make me look forward to Blog-Con even more


  8. Lovely work Dave. I'm quite liking this mine project of yours... Very cool.


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.
