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.

Billy The Kid


In between doing some work on the cavalry I have been tickling the brushes over the Andrea Miniatures "Billy the Kid". I am beginning to sound like a broken record when i say these figures are superb, but I just can't help it - they are!



I really enjoyed painting this one. I also used the new Scale 75 paints for the flesh. I must say I am very impressed with the quality. They also dry very matt. So I think i need to try some of the colour packs .

Not bad comparison , although perhaps should have had darker trousers,
 

Painting what appears to be a ribbed / corduroy jacket was "fun"


 And here is a group shot of all the Andrea figures together.
 

So  I need your help on which figure from the range to choose next to order up from Historex, just leave a reply , the one with most votes will be the next 54mm project.



Wild Bill Hickock

High Noon - Gary Cooper

Pale Rider

Magnificent 7 - Yul Brinner

Winchester 73 - James Stewart

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

On the PREPATION table.
10mm Mamelukes

In the PLANNING
Death in the Dark continent stuff
