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.

As I am now about 80% through the Imperial forces I thought it would be opportune to revisit the opposing forces. I currently have about 600 foot figures and my target has always been to have 1000. A sort through the remains of the Perry plastic boxes (14 or them) produced 141 usable figures - adding a few spare metals took it up to 144 which seemed a good number to go with. They were spilt 62 Beja and 82 Ansar.
These would be tackled "en masse" - I will do a further post on how this is done after. But now here are the end results.
