Raising a mini wargamer

It was supposed to be another trip to our local Games Workshop to pick up a couple of supplies. My daughter Claire was super excited to go to “Daddy’s store!” to pick up some more of “Daddy’s guys!” (Dark Angels Space Marines) She very happy to go into the store and started leading us everywhere to look at “Castles” and other “guys.”

The store clerk, Thomas, saw how enthrall we she was with everything and sprang into action. As I was picking up my supplies he walked over with a fully assembled and primed “guy” for Claire to paint herself. This simple act of kindness completely made Claire’s night! She was so excited that night that she wanted to bring the little model to bed with her.

Claire waited patiently all week and today Claire got to start painting her guy. Enjoy these cute pictures!

  2. Oh, look at how intent she is! How wonderful to be able to bond with her dad like this!

  3. I remember my 7yrs old cousin looking with such intense fire while we played ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice memories when I bought him a skaven unit of gutter runners and he started to collect skaven army. It was 16yrs ago and we still play together. He lives in Amsterdam and me in London but it is our gaming that make us meet couple times a year ๐Ÿ™‚
