Chris Palmer This past Saturday members of the HAWKs got together to paint over 400 20mm plastic WWII German soldiers for an “Armies For Kids” giveaway game they will be running at their upcoming one-day miniatures gaming con, BARRAGE .
Six lucky kids who take part in the game at BARRAGE will walk away with both an Allied and a German army, complete with tanks, infantry and machine guns.
The HAWKs had already painted the Allied troops at an earlier painting day.
This project was made possible by Ed Mohrmann who donated a large box of 20mm WWII figures, and John Acar who donated four 20mm tank models. A couple of the HAWKs also chipped in items from their own collections to fill out the units.
