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 - The last of the baggage.

 I picked up some Iron Duke miniatures baggage camels to add to the collection , increasing the size of the supply camel caravan and column to 40 camels. There are a range of manufacturers , Connoisser, Redoubt, Castaway Arts, Brigade , Perry and Iron Duke - so plenty of variety.

 So while photographing the new additions I took the opportunity to get a few other units out and take a proper picture or three.

and a bit of period feel

So here are the lastest and final camel additions!

Still a few more bits and bobs left to do for this collection - amazingly enough


  1. Wonderful camels, they look awesome!

  2. Hard to comment Dave on this 😀 a collection very much second to none. Only those who collect and pant their own would recognise the fantastic effort to build such a collection.....but you need a much bigger table !

    1. Yeah , the effort seems worth it when I see it all like that. Yes indeed I need much bigger tables. I am working on the “big game” planning at the mo!

  3. Wonderful stuff Dave. Normally I'm not a fan of people airing their baggage on social media, but in this case I thoroughly approve.


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.
