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.

Out with the dice

The Austrian Grenadiers I painted for the Wargames Holiday Centre have had their first outing down there. I was there for the weekend for a re-fight of the 1813 battle of Dresden. Invariably of course you expect  that the nice new shiney troops would misbehave on thier first outing and be doing lots of running away. These guys however had a great game battling away on the eastern side of Dresden , even managing to see off an assault by a force of the French Old Guard.

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 .
