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.

Partizan "in the park" - part 1

Conveniently heading home from holiday coincided with passing near to Newark so I took the opportunity to attend this show for the first time. It seems the club had problems with the venue and had been moved out of the regular hall into tents in the grounds. At least the weather gods shone on the organisers. It seemd to work really well, and probably getting the best day of the year so far was a real bonus. It did get hot inside but once a few extra vents were opened it was bearable.Oh and the beer van...

Queuing in the sunshine!- that does not happen often...it seemed pretty busy until mid afternoon.

I took the opportunity to meet up with Simon Miller to play his great looking  Cremona game - more on this in post two.



It was good to meet up with a bunch of old friends - it was a very sociable day. So time for some pictures

Ian and kids in the dead wastes of Sid's Verdun game 

  

  

 The fantastic looking Zulu game



A delicous irony in the retreat from Moscow game - played on the hottest day so far!


 A some other eye candy










 Well done to Newark lads on keeping the show running - I was certainly very happy with day out..

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
Sudan stuff

On the PREPATION table.
Sudan stuff

In the PLANNING
WW2 & modern micro armour
