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.

AHPC - Challenge IX

It’s that time of year again for the winter paint challenge run by Curt and the minions. (You mad fools you).  This will be my 8th entry.

I have some stuff prepared ready to go , but perhaps not as much I would have liked , but it’s a marathon not a sprint so plenty of time. I have WW2 stuff  and terrain to do , plus a revisit to the Sudan .

I have a little side duel with Millsy going on for our points totals .

Anyway . Nearly time to twirl the brushes!


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 .
