The Verger and A German Paratrooper!

I know that sounds like the start of a joke! So expect an "Oooh err! Missus!" to creep in the comments somewhere, I know what you lot are like!

I was going to show you some Morris Dancers today BUT Matt has given me a few more to paint up this week so expect them next week! Now that is something to look forward to! Oh yes it is!

So while I am in a comical mood here are a Nun and the Dad's Army Verger. Or is it a German Paratrooper in disguise, that's the typical shoddy Nazi trick we are so often told about in the Dad's Army series.!  Having looked for the quote I could not find it so I may have made it up and it may be an innocent Nun after all. I will let you decide.

The figures are 28mm and Matt says they are from the Dad's Army set by Warlord Games. I shall take him at his word. Two very nice additions to the VBCW project we will b playing NEXT weekend.  So unless I forget my camera OR have a mishap or Matt has a Mishap that is when they will take the table.

I have provisionally asked for the Morris Dancers and the cricketers to be on my side. So  the chances are Matt will give me something else entirely!

Thanks for looking, All the best Clint

  1. Nice work, Clint. I must say that the nun looks suspiciously masculine to me! Nazi paratrooper in disguise? Could be.

    1. Thanks Bryan. While I grant you there are some butch women I think I agree with you.

  2. Great stuff Clint, "The Deadly Attachment" is a classic episode imho and the face on that nun looks suspiciously like Bill Pertwee's Air Warden Hodges to me; albeit he appears in the set wearing his tell-tale warden's outfit and the nun is listed as a spy in a nun's habit. Wonderful work regardless :-)

  8. Hmmm, I think the better joke is the verger,the paratrooper, and the Morris dancers! ;)
    Very nice work on the CoBs, Clint!
    The nun looks very similar to the one that shepherd the Catholic School not far from my home. She would shoot a stare at me when I passed like she knew I was up to no good! I spent a few years terrified my parents would enroll me there! ;)

    1. Thank you David. I am sure we all have had terrifying childhood school fears. Mine did not include nuns though. So I think you win this time.

  10. Nice work Clint, I am looking forward to seeing the Morris Dancers are they of the armed variety or more traditionally equipped?

    1. Thank you Simon. The morris dancers are a mixture of conversions (to carry weapons) and armed
