Dad’s Army – Part 4 (28mm Figures)

So here we have the final two figures in the Dad’s Army uniformed set of 8 figures.

First up we have Private Walker, described in the Warlord Games flyer as”… exempt from conscription in the regular army due to a severe corned beef allergy.  This frees him up to concentrate on his wholesale business – and with goods of all kinds in short supply Walker’s ‘connection’s can come in surprisingly useful.”

Secondly we have Private Pike for whom the narrative states – “The youngest member of the platoon by a long way, Frank Pike is an enthusiast of American gangster movies and proud custodian of the section’s Thomson sub-machine gun.  His mother insists he wrap up against the cold and frequently turns up on parade to make sure he is looking after himself.”

My attention will now be given to the 10 remaining figures.  As previously mentioned, the range comprises of 18 figures.  As well the 8 main character’s in uniform each one has also been cast in a different pose and dressed in civilian attire.  For those of you who remember the series an add on set featuring the Vicar and the Verger comprise the remaining 2 figures.

The civilian figures will present a greater painting challenge given stripped suits were the order of the day.  It will be interesting to see how that goes!  In the meanwhile images of the latest two figures below together with a group shot of all 8.

  1. Wow, very nice mini’s. A particularly like how you were able to work in some bright colors with the scarf and bag. Particularly juicy targets for snipers perhaps but, hey, you can’t have everything. 🙂

  3. Great set and I really like the brown/khaki on the uniforms. Definitely gives a nice texture and I’m definitely loving the guy with the Thompson. My grandfather carried one and he always loved it -especially compared with the M2 grease gun. As stated by others, just brilliant!
