Who do you think you are kidding Mr Hitler, if you think we are on the run,

we are the boys who will stop your little game.
 To many Brits of a certain age, that will immediately bring to mind this.

You may have noticed I've added a progress bar to the right, the code for that came courtesy of @RTGamer on Twitter, so big thanks to him.

The mini's currently in that are an unlikely bunch of chaps, character from a BBC comedy series called Dad's Army. Dad's Army was the nick name given to the units that made up the Home Guard during  World War Two,  so called because they were all soldiers past their prime and unable to enlist in the regular forces, often veterans from the previous world war.

Anyway, enough of a history lesson, these are the figures in their current state.

I've had them knocking around for about 8 years or so, I finally figured out what colour to go for with the uniforms. (Please don't tell me about the different dye batches and variations in the uniform colour, I know, I don't care, I just want the damn things painted)

So there you go :)


  1. Looks good! I like ow you captured the greenish color of the Dungarees that the home Guard were issued earlier in the war

  2. @Chris the problem is, I can't remember what colours I used there, so I'm going to use Vallejo 921 to paint the base coat, hit with a brown wash, then basecoat again leaving the recesses, then a highlight

  3. always fun when that happens.... Not!
