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 Duke"

My submission for the favourite character round in Curt's challenge (visit the gallery and vote for your favourite submission) was driven by all those boyhood cowboy movies. Of course you don't get much better than that icon of the western genre John Wayne - "The Duke". This is another of the 54mm figures by Andrea Miniatures. They a really are fantastic to paint. The sculpt on this one really captures the look and classic stance. I looked around for various images and selected what I thought was good colour scheme.

I have another classic 54mm set planned for the last challenge round.

I have enough of these figures to think about a small game now I think.

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.
