One of my favourite comic book characters growing up was Union Jack Jackson of Warlord comic. UJJ was a British soldier stranded in the Pacific, helping the US marines to fight Japan.
Jackson firstly had to win the trust of the tough veteran soldiers like O’Bannion and Sarge.
When I got my box of the excellent Warlord Games Bolt Action plactic US marines I instantly decided I was going to make Union Jack and his chums. I used heads from the plastic US army set by Warlord to give me the right helmets and square jaws I wanted, and my friend Si kindly made me some tiny flag decals.
What do you think? Do you have and child hood heroes you’d like to make in glorious 28mm plastic.
