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.

Orinoco Miniatures , my prize.

My prize for coming third in this years Analogue Hobbies painting challenge was kindly donated by Michael over at Orinoco Miniatures. It was a pack of each of their current ranges. Some very nice figures covering some little known (well to me) conflicts in South America.









They are really clean castings, and look as if they will be a joy to paint up.



Michael also supplied some rather fine flags for the period from Flags of War.. The ever present Irish!





Time to source a bit of reference material.

A big thank you to all the sponsors of the challenge for their wonderful prizes.

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
Pulp Alley
