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 #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

Work in hand

The RULES!

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.


On the PAINTING TABLE
15mm Terrain bits
15mm WW2 Germans

On the PREPATION table.
28mm Sudan.

In the PLANNING
15mm Napoleonics .
