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.

Pulp - Meet the Band

A continuation on the theme. Here we have the Jazz Quartet by Bob Murch.



and with Miss Lilly Von Verde the front woman 

Just need to come up with a good name and build a stage set!

Another of the Femme Fatale range - Wanda Midnight


And the shot of all the employees of "Long Sarah's"

  1. Lovely work again Dave. Your jazz quartet looks much better than my 8-piece jazz band :)

  10. Very nice, as always :-) . I'm going to vote for "The Bix Baker Four", but you can find inspiration for the names of real jazz bands here: http://www.redhotjazz.com/bands.html

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
