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.

Hammerhead 2018 - Shoot Out in Serenity City

Next weekend I will be at the rescheduled Hammerhead 2018 show in Newark Upon Trent. Originally could not make the date for Hammerhead , but due to it being postponed by bad weather it fell on a free weekend. A few quick messages with Martin, James and Scotty later and we have a weekend away planned with an evening in Newark and day running my cowboy game and hitting the trade and bring and buy.

We are on table GA15 - as Guisborough "Occasional" Gamers in the main hall. so if you want to pop by , or chuck some dice and see how you stack up against the Bounty Hunter we look forward to seeing ya.

damn - the Judge is tough!


  1. Have fun guys. I'm glad the rescheduling worked out for you.

  2. Great to hear that Serenity is back on the table, have a fabulous time chaps.

    1. Thanks Michael, it’s certainky overdue for a run out .

  3. Beautiful, as ever. Wish I could be there to see the live game!


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 .
