All photographs taken by me at "The Return of the Garrison" Star Wars weekend, National Space Centre June 2014. Photographs mostly feature members of the UK Garrison, the UK section of the 501st Legion.
I'm honored that one of the characters I co-created (w/ Pablo Hidalgo) for Lucasfilm and the Star Wars Universe is going to be the Star Wars Celebration VI 1:6 scale Sideshow exclusive figure! More pictures in the coming days
It has Been 15 years since the Clone War and the Galactic Civil War. Despite their training to follow orders many clones left the Empire for disagreement for the future after Order66. Now the many brave troopers who walked into the rusty bridge to the H$lls of War against Palpatines Empire can at last rest. Here is where they rest and here is where they will be remembered.
The Legend of Sonic Company
During the Battle of Yavin after the Death Star's Destruction. The empire sent 40,000 Imperial Troops to avenge the Death Star. The Helmets you see in Front of you are the very troopers that defected from the Empire to support the Rebels. Why are they remembered? What is the big deal. Reason they fought an entire 40,000 strong army aimed at crushing the rebels. When it was time to evacuate Luke said to them, Come on we're leaving. But the the squad leader said, Go Go, we have take out that Anti-Ship Cannon at the highlands. Leave us and tell everyone we'll miss them. Luke and the other Rebels took off. while the small band of Sonic Company troopers charged head first into the army of 40,000. Only one trooper got to the anti-ship gun and destroyed it. Luke and his unit got out. that last thing he saw was ball of blinding light and a Mushroom cloud. Sonic Company went with a Bang.

My recently finished Y-wing, painted using an airbrush. This is the first time that I have used an airbrush on a model, and am pleased with the results. I cannot believe that I waited so long to use one. I weathered the ship with my standard dry brushing techniques. I have not yet painted the stand, though I will probably do it in the same style as that on my X-wing.
