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.

BLOG-CON planning.

Well its fast approaching. I have sourced for us our very own banner so you will be able to take photographs under it.

I went to Foundry last weekend - it looks a great facility for us. As there are also some great offers on for buying figures. I am sure there will be a an outbreak of "SHINEYBLOODYITIS" with all those tempting goodies.

I am working on repackaging the cowboy collection so I can carry as much as possible with me . But if anyone wants to see anything in particular in the flesh let me know and i will be sure to pack it.

Quantity Has a Quality All Its Own - 6's!!! lots of them

My good friend Scotty is in the process of having a turn out of his man cave - and came across some 6mm Adler lads I painted for him far too long ago. So I thought I would tempt Ian (Blog with no name) and Lee( who's blog link eludes me!)

The Austrians

 Yes the flags a big! but you just gotta do it!!

and the token outnumbered French !

I really don't think the eyes are up to these anymore - pity because you can certainly knock a lot out in short timeframe

Meanwhile I am starting on my own new "man cave" - gaming and painting room!! Huzzah!

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 .
