Vicar and Hodges.

Yes continuing with some Dad's army figures by Warlord Games. Today we have the vicar and the green grocer Mr Hodges.

Being 28mm they are a little smaller in real life than in the photos but they should be good enough to get the idea. And yes I did muck up Mr Hodges left eye, can't be helped sometimes it happens.

As with most of my 28mm figures they are for Matt and are part of the VBCW collection that will get an outing on Sunday (Barring mishaps). And yes there will be an AAR. (Assuming I remember the camera!)

So 2 more civilians for the project. I realise it is late posting these today so will post 2 more tomorrow! Probably in the morning as they should be finished by then.

The Morris Dancers are still being finished but should be ready by Saturday (I Hope)  as I want to use them on Sunday in the game. I have suggested to Matt that I use the Cricketers and the Morris dancers as they will give a village green feel to the troops and that's about as VBCW as you can get.

Until tomorrow, take care have fun and paint like crazy!

Cheers Clint

  2. Ah, another tip top paint-job by the Viceroy of VBCW, Clint :-) Wonderful stuff and I'm not sure what you think is wrong with Hodges. I didn't notice anything about the eye? Looking forward to the Morris Dancers, and more to come tomorrow as well - you're spoiling us!!!

    1. Thanks Blax, The posting was late today so an early one to morrow.

      I have struggled with the morris dancers, but the ones that are finished already do look quite smart if I do say so myself.

      As for Hodges I am my own worse critic. But I have mucked up the eye.

  6. Good work, Clint, although I agree with you that Hodges' eyes are a bit off.

    1. Thanks Bryan. Computer Monitor died, faded to black and would not revive! So a Little (OK a lot) later than I wanted to be today.

  7. Great additions, but does Hodges deserve to be known as cack-eyed ?
