One more post about sharing the hobby with young children. In my previous post I mostly talked about teaching the game to my nine year old daughter, but I am also trying to involve my 5-year old girl. The game is beyond her, instead I painted up one of the Warhammer Fantasy houses for her playmobil. It works great. The building is a tower from the Fortified Manor Set
.....and was very easily converted with some balsa wood and a piece of the Fantasy Fences and walls set.
Before primer I worked on fixing the seams with green stuff, but I was running out of time, her birthday came up much faster then I wanted! Anyway, the sculpt does need a lot of green stuff on the stone work, but oh well, she won't care.
My wife insisted in painting it in happy colors, so the roof got a nice 3 layered red and I painted the doors yellow.
In the end I wanted to keep it usable for my own games and I think that worked out just fine.
And here are some of the new inhabitants...
Long story short: the GW houses for Fantasy make great gifts for kids and it provides hours of wonderful hobbying for us.
