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.

Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge

It is that time of year when our own corner of the blog-o-sphere is invited to particpate in Curts winter painting challenge. Well done Curt..

http://thepaintingchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/the-seventh-annual-analogue-hobbies.html

I have been involved since the second one , and its been a highlight of the year in terms of getting stuff done , and making new friends.

We are running some on line paint and chat sessions amongst the challengers via the Google+ and Facebook pages. So if you would like to meet up "virtually" with fellow particpants feel free to join either/both groups.

I intend to finish the Sudan project this winter - there i said it!

Battleground Show - 26th November

Its coming up time for the bookending show of the year at Stockton on Tees. Battleground as a show seems to be going from strength to strength. A perfect time for stocking up on winter goodies and presents to oneself as well. I really need to get my head around a new project for next year - though that may be subject to a move of the man-cave to new and improved location.

Myself and friend Steve will have the Sudan collection out this year (we did the cowboys last year).

It will be run as participation - and can take 4-5 players, and takes about 3 hours to play. I have places reserved for "Roy" ; "Roger" and "Martin C"so there are a couple left yet.

                        


I am looking forward to it - so if you are there pop by and say hello..

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.
