    Hi all,
    This was due to be re-released by Foxwood but I haven't had much luck in contacting them so looking for an unmade/part made kit if anyone cares to part with one?

    Found said item in loft ....it’s all there the downside being I have at sometime painted the corner wall section and primered the figure with Halfords white primer but apart from that it’s all ok.....if interested PM me and you can have it for what I paid plus P&P....also comes with the limited production cert ( no 49))not that that will mean much if Foxwood are reproducing them...Lol 3F50DCF1-375B-48B2-A9A7-922FBDFBB28B.jpeg 2D7DFCC0-74B3-4A5F-AB1C-427614E8CFDD.jpeg

    Foxwood seem to have a habit of vanishing and then reappearing again at a later date, and at the moment they seem to be very quiet again.

    No idea what's going on with them, and as far a I know they have never even had a web site. But hopefully this and other ex-Stormtroopers stuff they've bought the masters for will get a re-release because there were some great pieces in that range.

    This brings back a few memories........I painted this figure (the original Stormtroopers release) in 2009, it was the first figure I painted in Vallejo. I put it on display in a cabinet in my local model shop in Salisbury, & someone offered £35.00 for it so I sold it.

    I published some photos of it on this site at the time, I know they’re still available in the archive because they were commented upon recently but I can’t recall who by.

    It was in Schools of Miniaturistry>Completed Works for June 7th 2010, but I can’t work out how to move the photos to here.......perhaps the mods could help out?

    Nice job that Chris. (y)

    I bought mine off Stu at Euro in (I think) 2007, and I'm ashamed to say that it is still in my stash unstarted after all these years! Not one that I want to offload though, which is why I didn't mention it earlier (didn't see the point).

    Glad to see that Kevin has come through for you Steve. Just shows that it always pays to ask, because you never know!

    If you need another head with airborne helmet, I found the one from this figure (& separate chinstrap) in one of my spares boxes the other day - let me know if you want it.

    I could certainly find a use for it, I have an American Para that I am thinking of converting to combine with your one if the scales match up!

    I wonder what the difference is between the two kits, they appear to be the same kit but the Black-sheep kit was sold as a limited edition??

    Stormtrooper - British Para Corporal at Arnhem 1944 (ST120/03)
    Black-sheep - British Para at Arnhem 1944 (BS120/04)

    Chailey, These might be of interest to you also:

    Stormtrooper - British Para Officer at Arnhem 1944 (ST120/14)
    Black-sheep - Major Allison Digby Tatham-Warter Arnhem 1944 (BS120/03)

    Stu's "Black Sheep" releases were limited-run reissues of some of his earlier Stormtroopers line, and also I think I'm right in saying that he only sold the "Black Sheep" boxings at shows.

    They were the same kits (although some were 'tweaked' slightly), the only difference being that they were labelled "Black Sheep" instead of "Stormtroopers" and in some cases had different box art (e.g. the painted piece instead of just a b/w image of the unpainted figure).

    I like the officer, with my newly acquired para I can see a vignette forming!
