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.

Gaming - Paper Soldiers and a bit of painting .

Things finally aligned this weekend to meet up with the guys from the local gaming group . We are putting on a demo game at Battleground at the end of November and John wanted a target to get his WSS paper soldiers collection completed and out on the table . 

We set up the main 12x6 with some simple terrain so we could work through the rules on a page stuff that he’d created too .

The French and allies , against the Brits and Allies . 

Pretty sure John has ruined a few pairs of scissors doing the cast of 1000’s . They are all based on MDF based to give a little heft . 

The French carried the day - with some seriously good dice rolling - much to the British commander -John - chagrin. 

The French are putting the Brits under real pressure by the end if the game 

A good play test was had - a few simple tweaks to make and some more paper buildings to add to finish off .

Bren also had his St Nazaire set up out - as it’s getting nearer completion .again this was to do some play testing for a future multiplayer game for us .

I have completed some paint table lurkers to get the brushes moving again - and it’s now all clear ready for a load of 10mm Naps for Gerry and to crack on with my other winter projects .
