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.

Normandy 44 - Town houses

 As part of the summer order from Tiger Terrain I also picked up more town houses , shops, and damaged buildings . I have completed the first 6 .


And added to the rest of the Tiger Terrain items 


I have a bunch of 4Grouhd painted stuff ,that will also supplement these until I can get some more - hopefully later this year . I also need to get a railway station and some sort of factory , garage etc, and do a cemetery for the town. Always more to do .


  1. Hi Dave in cas e you didnt know - North Star Military are having a sale (11th Jan onwards)(Bargains section) it includes a lot of 4ground stuff (might be something usefull in there) Happy New Year Rupe

  2. These look great Dave, Rupert beat me to it, but I was also going to call out to you the Northstar sale.

  3. Really nice looking terrain Dave 👍

  4. Looking splendid Dave. Very much enjoy this period and your collection is always stunning to look at.


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.

15mm Terrain bits
15mm WW2 Germans

On the PREPATION table.
28mm Sudan.

15mm Napoleonics .
