bolt action : dad's army

During the dark days of 1940, Britain was under dire threat of Nazi invasion. A massive citizen army, the Local Defence Volunteers, was raised to defend their families and homes. Although armed with old or  ad hoc  weapons and equipment the Home Guard, as it became known, was a vital part of the defence of British shores. Based on these proud defenders of the realm, the classic TV series,  Dad’s Army  produced some of television’s most enduring catchphrases and characters as it followed the adventures of Walmington-on-Sea’s Home Guard platoon.


The boxed set contains 8 superbly detailed miniatures sculpted by Paul Hicks – representations of the cast of the classic TV series, Dad’s Army in Home Guard attire! Included are Captain Mainwaring, Sergeant Wilson, Lance-Corporal Jones, Privates Pike, Walker, Frazer and Godfrey, plus Warden Hodges.


These are some of the best sculpts I’ve ever seen. The detail is excellent, capturing the facial details and expressions of the actors from the show.

I stated earlier that these are some of, if not the best sculpts, I’ve ever seen but at £28 for 8 25mm miniatures I just can’t bring myself to give the set 5 stars.
