Any excuse to play little soldiers! School oracy day.

No need to call social services! School oracy day is not even a even a little bit rude so take your minds out of the gutter!

First lesson saw my Geography pupils debate if it was right to drill in the Artic for oil (we decided yes!).

Second lesson had pupils walking around with boxes on their heads being robots for Coding and after lunch my English class got to play Mordheim (lite)!

The rule was they could only pull off their moves if they could describe it in a dramatic way to represent the narrative or use specific linguistic devices set by me!

Ended up in a nail biting finish and the kids have asked to play again next oracy day, so I am calling that a winner!

With the release of 8th edition 40K this weekend Lano and I are planning another speed painting challenge but might only give ourselves 12 hours this time!!

Look out for updates Saturday night!


  1. Excellent idea Riot, having to describe the action in detail sounds fun :-)

    1. Cheers man.

      I had to ban 'twang' as an onomatopoeia after about 3 turns ;0)

    1. Thanks.
      I pooped a brick when SLT walked in and started filming on their ipads!
      But today it was shown to the staff as an exempler so I somehow pulled it off!

    2. Oh well done you, nice when things go our way!

  4. 12 hours to paint the set? You need to YouTube live stream that...

    1. We have decided against it.

      We are just not that excited about 40K to warrant it. Also we figure the re-sale value will not make it worth while financially

  5. Atmospheric and beautiful report!
