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.

New Year - Old Projects

The brushes are out for the first time this year. I am back to The Sudan with the Camel Corps being the first target. It's a large unit project, with mounted versions, dismounted close order , and dismounted skirmish formations. To my mind it's the unit you just have to have for the Sudan

A few different base colours used for the horde of camels.


Plenty of time set aside this weekend to crack on with these.

  4. Camels ahoy! I knew it wouldn't take you long to dust of the brushes and get into the fray.

  5. Its absolutely a Must Have unit for the Sudan - especially after that cracking Camel Corps battle scene in the move Khartoum. River gunboats are of course another Must Have unit!

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
