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.

Game On - Hammerhead Show 4th March

I have booked a big table for the upcoming Hammerhead show to give "some" of the Sudan collection another public airing.

You will find me on table GB10 - Guisborough "Occasional" Gamers. If you are there pop along and say hello.

I have a "big" Sudan game planned - using Black Powder and bits from the "Sands of the Sudan.

If you are interested in game let me know.


  1. Hope it goes tremendously well Dave.

  2. Dave, see you at hammerhead - and I've dropped you a line about the big game using your 'contact me' button. :-)


Work in hand


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.
