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 #3 , and jungle progress.

 The last of the marine squads has been finished . 


This completes the current batch of US forces , I have a few nice vignettes pieces by Full Metal and The Assault Group  on the paint table along with a platoon of NVA. The stash of air assets is growing with 3 helicopters and 2 aircraft now in the to do pile . I have started making some telescopic flight stands - more on those another time.

The jungle terrain to fill the 8x4 has also now been completed by Scotty.

‘Nam 68 - Marine Squad #2 , and “Up Country” table build

 The second marine squad is completed . Gaming bud Scotty has been knocking out the jungle and trees etc - it now fills  a 35 litre RUB . I reckon we want the same again for a really cluttered table . That will then spread out easily for the really large table we plan on doing in the future . 


The progress on the 8x4 so far 


And some sandbag positions completed - Scotty has a Fire Support Base in the planning too 

Things are coming along nicely
