My sons first painted miniature

My 5 year old son has been badgering me to paint one of my 40mm Prince August figures.  Well this morning he finished the green base.  The only bit I did was spraying the figure black and sticking it to the base everything else he did himself. 



He has got the paint into the right place and its not half bad - a lot better than my first ever figure.   I will use this figure as part of the Elector of Furstenberg-Lederhosen army. 

I will set a few figures for a game using the simple rules from Charge and see if he wants to play.

Top job which captures the spirit of those Charge / Wargame days. Remember when playing your dad his tactics are attack attack attack.

I think the faeries left a 30 year old changeling...
That is very nice work.

Now then the Count Mattenburg Von Aykliff has been unmasked.

I still remember my great victory against him refighting Fontenoy on our mothers living room carpet in 1975 using hordes of Spencer Smith figures.

That maybe true but knocking out King Tigers with T34/85's was really something.
