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.
Today saw James come over to run a playtest (we are both playing Germans next week , with rest taking allied roles )from the beach landing part of next weeks big game. With naval gunfire , waves of bombers , then DD tanks and landing craft mechanisms to work through . I helped to work through the initial complex items and firm up some things re the landing schedule and stuff to be written down for the allied players . When this table is added to rest of it next week , it should ensure some problems to overcome and a good visual treat . It also served to focus the effort on a few bits this week
