While I’m busy with Star Wars , on the other table there is Games Workshop battle raging. Now, I don’t actually know what any of these things are called, they are the realm of The Headmaster Jeremy, who paints them…..I think his daughter Emily also paints them……Headmasters don’t have a lot of free time…………anyway Some of these figures are supplied via G.W. through their School Alliance progam, and some have been purchased with club funds. The Children also get to paint and keep some GW figures…sadly i failed to take pictures of all their space marines and Stormcast Eternals they have been painting over the last couple of years.
The pictures below are from their most recent battle
Dreadfleet is up next for the school club, and i also have my own version. Had one run through with the rule system to test, which was a lot of fun. Way to complex to use the rule system in school, so will have to rewrite in a more basic form. Impressed with the detail of the ships, in fact everything in the box is great, bit of a shame GW binned this after such a short space of time, but copies can still be bought in mint condition on ebay.
I still have a few ships left to paint in the school set and virtually everything in my box is unfinished. What i have painted for school is pretty much standard paint schemes, i have managed to get my hands on a few extra ships which i plan to convert or paint differently from the standard scheme.
This computer console is by a company called figurebitz although i modifed it to include some screens made from pics printed onto some photopaper and some clear plastic. the kits are also available from crooked dice.
I decided to make the kit into a Rover Control Console for my village project, as a means to activate the Rover, guardian of the village.
Nice little kit goes together well but no instructions so i good idea to look at reference pics of the model to work out how it goes together. No doubt i shall be buying some more!
I have a few other models from the range which i will be posting as and when they are complete.

One of the visitors to this site, customer of my decal sheet….and clearly also a Crooked Dice customer too Ted Eckel, sent me the photos of his finished Prisoner themed diorama, cleverly utilizing the Moke Box. I was so impressed I thought I’d Pop it up on my blog to show you guys.
Ted, you have made a great job of that Rover looks good too in the background, Moke looks very cool it has to be said, and number six’s badge is very effective.
Thank you kindly for sending the Photos Ted.
I have lots of visitors to my blog who are 40k/Space crusade players so here is a little treat for them.

Fully assembled and painted to a very high standard the full list of units are as follows
A well painted 40k army. A mixture of steel legion power and catachan

Lots of infantry …a mixture of heavenly lead and practical plastic.
A rare chance to get your hands on such a huge piece of nostalgia….but you’d better be quick!!!!
I don’t normally give advance warning of other companies releases, but I was pretty pleased to see these two figures which are going to be out in March this year, according to the Crooked dice newsletter.
Both are suitable for populating the village!
I have been telling several prisoner fans about this in the last few days but they don’t get the newsletter so couldn’t see the picture….here it is.
Can’t wait to get my hands (and brushes) on these!
