Warriors’ vignette, “Like Father Like Son”, was a fantastic set to work on. As soon as I was presented with the box I was itching to get on with it!

Inspecting the contents reinforces the good impression of the box art. The resin is presented in the typically high standards of Warriors. For a more detailed examination of the unassembled contents, see Brett Green's review.


The vignette set comprises a base, a chunk of T-34 and the figures of the father and the son. There are 30 parts in total, and the detail in these pictures speaks for itself.



Assembly and Painting


Cleanup of the resin parts was generally easy and all the pieces fitted together well. My only problem was the dreaded large casting blocks on the delicate weapons.

The elements were painted using Valejo acrylics and Testor’s Model Master enamels.


Once all the individual items were assembled and painted, it was time to bring the story to life. All the components fitted well on the base, but the figures had to be moved around a bit to get a sensible relationship. In the end I placed a small piece of rubble from Firestorm Models under one foot of the son. Voila!





The completed vignette well conveys the impression of a father and son reunited for the final chapter of conflict in Berlin, May 1945.


I recommend Warriors’ “Father and Son” vignette to all modellers.
