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.

Sudan - Baggage camels from Santa

This is a thank you to my secret Santa , who kindly gifted me a set of the Redoubt baggage camels. You can never have too many of these. This gift was bumped right up the queue and is the first item completed this year.




plenty more dusty stuff to come ...

  4. Nicely done Dave - those blues add a great splash of colour. It was great to watch them get painted and then photographed on the google chat!

  6. Santa sent you 2 wise men and a camel-train full of presents? Somewhat mixed-up stories there, I think!

    Very nicely finished, as always :-) .

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
10mm ACW, 28mm Stradiots

On the PREPATION table.
ACW Terrain, Egyptian and Sudanese troops for the Sudan

In the PLANNING
Death in the Dark continent stuff
Pulp Alley
