Azazel’s Bitz Box Unit Contest


Azazel’s Bitz Box hosts mostly painting challenges.  This month’s challenge is for units.  See post here:

So, I decided to finish up a few units that had been partially completed for a while.  These are all related to my Operation Sea Lion games.  Warlord sells the characters from the British sitcom, Dad’s Army (  I have the older Copplestone Dad’s Army figures (not authorized), but I couldn’t resist these too.  The Warlord figures come with both the characters in civilian clothes with identifying armbands and the characters in uniforms.  Here they are:




Captain Mainwaring




And here they are altogether:

Dad’s Army characters in civilian clothes

Dad’s Army characters in uniform

And here’s some other stuff I finished recently.

Dolly Madison rescuing the portrait of George Washington before the British burned down the White House during the War of 1812.  Figure from First Corps.

Some Reaper power armor infantry

A gamer

The brain in a bottle…

A better view of the brain

Female defenders of Little Baisley by the Sea, the town I use for all my Sea Lion games.

Civilians from Little Baisley by the Sea

Hell hound from Reaper

And a last look at some defenders of the town. I really like the sculpting of the two figures on the left!

  1. Really cool grouping. Somehow I think that Dolly Madison never was portrayed before looking at a brain in a bottle, so that’s a trailblazer! I like the faces (and I think the gamer was at Barrage?)😁

    The group of Dad’s army has so much character. And the Brit women are well done too. You put a lot of nice subtlety in your painting Buck, always love to see your stuff. Welcome to Azazel’s challenge!

  2. Love the Dad’s army gear. Jones especially. Really like the brain in the bottle too hehe

    Thanks for the kind remarks!

  4. Excellent stuff! I was brought up on Dad’s Army so really like them, particularly the two versions of each figure!
