During the dark days of 194, 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 18 superbly detailed miniatures sculpted by paul hicks – representations of the cast of the classic tv series, dad’s army in civilian and home guard attire! Included are captain mainwaring, sergeant wilson, lance-corporal jones, privates pike, walker, frazer and godfrey, plus warden hodges, the verger and reverend farthing.
Also included are plastic bases and a leaflet chronicling dad’s army and how you can field them in games of bolt action on the tabletop.
