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 - Evac team

 After a coupe of weeks off from the brushes it’s back to it now. First up off the production line is a casualty ,stretcher bearers and medic set from Full Metal Miniatures . Pretty good figures to paint , and  provides a nice vignettes piece , and something useful for scenarios.



More FMM and The Assault Group figures on the table , along with a platoon of NVA .

With the further easing of Covid restriction we will be back to some face to face gaming from next week , so there is a Nam game booked in with Martin and Scotty .. 


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.
