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.

I picked up these figures ready painted at the Scarborough show earlier this year to give my Indians some mounted figures. They are Wargames Foundry figures, and i thought they were nicely done and at a reasonable price from Colonel Bills. They are a bit more plains wars than the rest of the collection , but then that's an excuse to get some U.S. Cavalry.

I have been photographing them to make up cards and I particularly like this one. I need to come up with a name ...

Maybe they will get a run out at Blog-Con. Things are still on hold with the mine project until later in the autumn when i get the main work room sorted.
