Nurse Docerty!

 A little while ago on the painting challenge I painted up Nurse Docherty. She is by Scarab miniatures and intended to look like one of the Black adder crew. As such she should be in khaki! However as her clothes are similar to a interwar period Nurse travelling either to or from the wards (perhaps to another part of town or the accommodation block) I decided to paint her as a VBCW nurse. The figure was a joy to paint and far more realistic than many wargames female characters. She is not a "Dolly bird" type!

She was called Nurse Docerty as the Challenge adjudicators contain a certain Dave Docerty who sometimes calls himself Nurse Docerty! She may indeed be related and she may have told me a fib or two. Who can say.

  1. Are you saying that most 'female' toy soldiers aren't realistic? I thought all women had big breasts, small waists and went around doing jobs that need doing, basically, naked. That's like telling me that Santa Clause isn't real :)

    Its a cracking paint job, mind!

    1. Thank you Roy I suspect many women do exactly that! Santa is real and so is the Easter Bunny.
