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 - Royal West Kents.

I have returned to the Sudan to complete the the final unit for the British infantry. A 36 figure unit for the Royal West Kents., plus a couple of skirmish stands and mounted Officer  I have gone for another red coated unit.



So that gives me 10 British infantry units altogether.

  5. I plan to add this unit in due course. My Godfather and father served with them, the former from 1935 until transferring to the Parachute Regiment in 1954.

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
28mm Napoleonic

On the PREPATION table.
15mm Germans WW2
28mm Sudan


In the PLANNING
Storage wars
