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.

Battleground - Stockton on Tees 28th November

Just a few shots..

The Man With No Name surveys the town. We played a couple of games of our Bounty Hunter scenario - both went to the very wire with the final outcome decided just as the train left town - one the Bounty Hunter won... and the other he recieved a fatal wound on the very last shot! Great fun.

Had a good chat with a number of people - - and topped up on paints for the winter season.

  6. That does look splendid, doesn't it. If you were to attend the Falkirk or Edinburgh shows next year, I'd be able to see it up close :-) .

    2. Err, in May sometime, I think. But I wasn't entirely serious, you know. Not that it wouldn't be interesting...

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
10mm ACW

On the PREPATION table.
10mm Mamelukes

In the PLANNING
Death in the Dark continent stuff
