Dad's Army/Home Guard Commission

Even though my posts have been fewer of late, I have still been busy with hobby related activities.
I have been doing a lot of commission painting recently - actually over the last twelve months- which is brilliant as I am currently out of the workforce on "doctor's orders". I would quite like to paint as a part-time job if I could build up my client base over time. Anyway, at the moment I have been painting for a fellow Tasmanian wargamer & collector who has been great to work with and I can show you some sneak peeks of some stuff I have been working on for him.

What I can show you at the moment is a Dad's Army/Home Guard project using Wargames Foundry 28mm miniatures. They are great character figures and capture the look really well.


From L to R - Sgt Wilson, Cpt Mainwaring, Cpt Square, Fraser, Godfrey, Walker,
Pike, & Lance Corporal Jones.





This drawer contains the rest of the LRDG commission, Home Guard rank & file, civilians, dispatch rider, and even a telephone box.

I am also working on a Plastic Soldier Company Pak 38 & crew, a few British Commandos & other bits 'n bobs at present. Stay tuned.

PS If you know anyone who needs painting done at very reasonable prices drop me a line - email address is on the "Jacksarge's Painting Service" link :-)

    1. Hi Archduke. Yes, the Wargames Foundry versions have been round a while but I think they hold up rather well.

    1. Hi Doug, thanks.
      Didn't get sent a van to paint up, not sure if the customer already has one in his collection.
