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.
I have finished up the remaining mounted troops for the Mahdists that were in the lead pile. This consisted of 12 Baggara Cavalry , and 12 rifle armed Beja camel riders - both lots by Perry. This take the total mounted force to 80 figures altogether - not far of the original intent of 100. I might go for 50 Baggara , and 75 camels.
All the mounted out for a ride...
the new camel riders
the new Baggara.
The lead pile for the Sudan is steadily shrinking - may need a top up!
