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.
Right then, time to get cracking on with a stalled project. One of the big benefits of the new man cave is the second large table which allows me to overflow from the painting area while doing preparation work. A while ago I had de-sprued the contents of 10 boxes of Perry Mahdist, so at least they are just ready for a mass assembly session .
So first WIP shots.
130+ figures sorted! extra metals added for variety casualties and hiding ones. Extra order to Martin at Warbases required!
Bits box has not gone down much
The creation of one of the desert column support elements.
I have really got the wind in the sails with this project and want to get the mahdist force done swiftly.
