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.

Cold War Gone Hot - More Soviets

Just another top up for my Soviets , with a mixed bag of T80's , BTR60's MT-LB, BRDM2s, and BMD3s. Plus some OT64 and OT65s  for other WARPAC forces - anyway enough of what would seem to be random collections of letters

So currently that completes the various soviet stuff I have from the lead pile , until I get a bit more infantry

I am going to do some small NATO forces from the Brits, Germans and the US to complement the stuff the other guys have , just so I have forces for both sides as well.

I picked up some more building from Timecast at the York show, and these on the workbench now as we have another game in couple of weeks.

  5. Dave, I think you're going to need a bigger wargames table! :)


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 .
