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 cattle baron.

I have finally managed to source a reasonable number of Longhorn cattle after long wait and search around.. These are 1/64th made by ERTL. They come pre-coloured with a mix of plain and patterned. A spray with a matt varnish and then dab of dark brown and a few differing washes broke the colours up. 25 head of cattle. Makes for a bit of fun with the castle rustling scenario, or the stampede through town.

Of course that means i may need to get a Cattle Barons house - which is another new item in the "to do" list.

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.
