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.

Paint table Saturday update, and The Sudan Inspiration

It does come round quickly.

There has been more progress on the final items for the Mahdist army, the Baggara cavalry , and Beja Camel are just about done . I am awaiting a restock of a few paints , varnish and basing material which is due for delivery on Monday.





Meantime work progresses on preparing their opposition




I have also found some old photos of Peter Gilders collection which are the inspiration for this project.





















Real eye candy I am sure you will agree.

Have a great weekend

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
10mm ACW, 28mm Stradiots

On the PREPATION table.
ACW Terrain, Egyptian and Sudanese troops for the Sudan

In the PLANNING
Death in the Dark continent stuff
