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.

Nam ‘68 - Marine squad #1

 Work has been progressing on the US Marines for this project and they will be rolling off the  production line over the next week. I really enjoyed doing these.

The NVA units(Gringo40) have been base coated for starting them next . I have VC sourced (Gringo40)  , and just ordered the civilians (Empress). Terrain wise the jungle stuff is building up , my friend Scotty is doing all of that with a real range of stuff . Orders for village stuff are also on the way .  I am also planning for more urban and plains stuff too . 

I have copies of Charlie Don’t Surf , and The Nam - the way it was . I played through a few turns of The Nam and liked the feel . Also the customisable elements so it will be up for a proper field trial shortly . Just need to get my NVA painted .

Really enjoying doing the whole new project thing . It has the creative juices going , and I have that end vision in mind to help the what I want it to look like when it’s finished.
