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.

Terrain - trees and bits

 It’s been a while since the last post . The day job involves keeping the world connected through CV19 which has had its challenges  and continues to do so , along with managing to grab an escape on holiday to wonderful part of Scotland . As the dark nights close in its time to up the production- so I am clearing out a bunch of terrain pieces over the coming weeks 

First up is a set of larger trees. These are by Busch and are in the height range from 90 to 140 mm and are the largest ones I have suitable for 15mm. That gives me at least 250 trees now. In addition I have some 6mm size conifers that mate Scotty found in his stash and gifted to me . I have started  making  a few large bases of these. Plus I am working my way to a 100 feet of hedging/bocage (66 feet so far)  so I have another 8 foot under way  . This batch will have a higher profile using some D shaped beading as a base .


Next up I have more 15mm. Normandy buildings then it will prep for the winter challenge time.



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.
