By sponsoring the Scouts Model Maker Activity Badge, Games Workshop hope to provide young people with new and creative ways to learn skills for life.
Games Workshop seeks to inspire new generations of young people by helping them develop the inventive and artistic skills that are an integral part of the Warhammer hobby, and introducing new worlds of imagination and fantastical possibilities.
Warhammer is an incredibly creative hobby that encourages social activities and group interaction - a notion shared by Scout Groups across the country, making it a perfect match!

Are you an Explorer?
Explorer Scouts resource - Warhammer Skills Development Programme (14-18 yrs)
With the Warhammer Skills development programme, young people can now collect, build, paint, play and read their way through the Warhammer universes as part of youth achievement awards. It supports Explorer Scouts with their Creative Arts Activity Badge, their Scouting Top Awards as well as the Skills section of their Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award too. In-fact, a Scout can use Warhammer Skills to meet the requirement for all 3 awards at the same time!
This programme can be used by any Explorer Scout regardless of whether they're a complete beginner or already have some experience of miniature model building and painting. Flexible for each award and young person, the programme centre's around each participant’s individual goals. It can be completed in any Warhammer store across the UK, in your own Warhammer club or Explorer Scout meeting place.
To help Explorers track their progress, Warhammer provide a free handy workbook that will guide them and their chosen Assessor throughout the process. The programme booklet helps Explorers choose the right models their project and explains what equipment they need to create unique achievements. If young people are completing the award in a Warhammer store, the store staff will also demonstrate new techniques and help to document new skills as part of the process.
To register and find out more about Warhammer Skills Development Programme, simply visit the Warhammer Alliance website.
Please note if an Explorer Scout will be using Warhammer Skills for their DofE Award, applications must be made by their parent or guardian if they are under 18 years of age.
