Dads Army

I have finally finished my first batch of Dads Army box set characters
 Even ARP Warden Hodges is included, both in uniform and civilian dress! Well grocers overall. They are cracking little figures and my painting doesn't do them justice. 
 Napoleon "Mainwaring" looks a little slim from the front but he has the structure from the side. Pike looks ready to mow down any and all on comers with his tommy gun. Private walker has a crafety fag and lance-corporal Jones is ready with his bayonet. Godfrey looks ready with tea and sympathy and if all else fails an asprin. Frazer's eye brows almost scream we're doomed! And of course Uncle Arthur or Sergeant Wilson that is if your not private pike. I've tried to paint them true to the series, I'm more than happy with the results! 
 The photos hopefully give a reasonable account of these little fellas! I didn't really watch Dads Army while I was growing up but maybe that was a good thing! I get to enjoy the show even more now. 
 so thanks for looking and hopefully i should be posting again real soon
Cheers for now Russ

    1. Thanks Michal, they are nice little figures and fun to paint into the bargain.

  2. Absolutely wonderful work Russ! I have this set too but I'm a bit concerned about painting them.

    1. Thanks Rodger, I really didn't think I could do them justice. They have such character it would of being a shame to loose it in painting.

  3. This is a special set for painting Russ,and i am thinking,`To do ones absolute best no matter who the painter might be`,is doing them as you yourself term it, Justice. Down from the tip of their head ant the white hair, to the last blade of grass on the bases, "I Like E`m All." Beautiful Work Indeed. Well done.BB

  4. Thanks BB, they are such iconic figures! and the civilians in the set look just as good as these little fellas.
    Thanks again BB after seeing and admiring your work, your words mean a lot!
