Few characters of British television are as beloved as the one that Warlord Games have now previewed. He is none other than the Lance-Corporal of Warmington-On-Sea Home Guard, Jack Jones the Butcher.
As with all of Warlord’s Dad’s Army miniature Jones has been sculpted in both his uniform and his civilian butcher’s apron, wielding either his trusty bayonet and rifle or the asagai spear he got when fighting in the Sudan.
Memorably played by, the sadly recently deceased, Clive Dunn, Lance-Corporal Jones’ cries of “Don’t Panic!” and “They don’t like it up ‘em” can now be heard being cried out over the battlefield.
I think that Warlord have done a particularly good job in capturing the appearance of Jones. I am really looking forward to seeing how the rest of the platoon fare and will definitely be picking them up when they are released.
How do you think Warlord did in sculpting old Jonesy?
