Who do you think you are kidding Mr Monkey?

Yes It's true. Paint Monkey has had a busy weekend. To the effect that I have managed to get 22 figures finished. Ok I had to Varnish them this morning but still. So today here are a collection of  "Foundry" Dad's army figures. I am very sure you will be able to pick out your favourite characters. (That said I can't find "Fraiser!") But most of the rest of them are there. Ok no "Hodges" or "the Verger", just those that are actually in the home guard. again no Mrs Pike!

The horde including a flag bearer. The Flag is NOT Walmington-on-Sea! But has been requested as part of the "Anglican League." This should make them suitable for some VBCW actions. I am sure Petal Kaput will be able to tell you all a lot more.

 The Main Characters are great fun to paint and brought back much nostalgia. They have all been painted for my mate Matt so they may not see the table for a few years yet. But who knows!




A Lewis Gun Team. This should give the Platoon some hitting power.















Walker, Godfrey and of course "Don't tell him your name......"







Captain Manwarring, Sgt Wilson and Corporal Jones. No I have not painted up a butchers Van for them!









I shall start some more of my own figures up next. So expect some Lace War (Queen Anne's War) figures in a few days time as I have them primed, but may well take a few days break I'll see what I feel like! I do want some more done for a planned game this weekend so I think it's likely the next batch are primed prepared and just need painting and basing so It is possible that I shall get them finished. But I might just not get round to it.

Thanks for looking today and with luck I shall post again Thursday or Friday.
All the best Clint

  7. Excellent renditions PM; but who will be the opposition that won't appreciate having it up 'em ?

    (I'm guessing the Camel Corps)

    1. As they are painted for a friend (Matt) I have no idea who will be the opposition for them. Thank you Joe.

  11. Very nice minis, Clint!
    I too have never seen " Dad's Army", but I'll play my Colonial Cousin Card and say I did watch "Hogan's Heroes" and "F Troop"
    My cousins and I would also wrap aluminum foil contraptions on the TV rabbit ears and catch Blake's Seven and Dr Who from Chicago UHF station on Friday and Saturday late night. Satellite/cable TV is really spoiling today's youth! ;)

    1. The Americans did Re-Make "Dad's Army" for their own audience called "Rear Guard" which I have never seen. Good that you watched B7 and Dr Who though Thank you David that did make me chuckle.
