Tabletop wargaming with the little one  

Had great fun having a game with my youngest daughter last night. She’s only 8 and is slowly falling I love with Warhammer. She especially likes it when I do the voices for the “little guys” as she calls them haha. 

She played the 101st Greenskinz and I was the Tau. Neither army has seen any action on the tabletop before tonight so it was kind of cool to play with them for the first time with my daughter. 

As a reminder to you all I have my own bastardised, summarised and simplified set of rules. I simplified them even more and the kid caught on very fast. She’s a clever one. 

We ended up playing for just under two hours and it was lots and lots of fun. 

At one point she was giggling and fidgeting so much that she knocked over a bunch of the Tau fire warriors. I just said that they’d passed out from the heat and this made her giggle even more hehe. 

She especially liked one of the Tau leaders who was also an amazing ballet dancer and pirouetted out of the way of an oncoming Ork tank! Haha. 

Here’s a few shots from the battle. 

Happy New Year everyone

Cheers

  1. From my old seminary days (don’t ask even Gurus can make some mistakes) “As the scripture teaches, `Train up a child in the way she should go: and when she is old, she will not depart from it. ‘ (Prov. 22:6.) GET EM EARLY I SAY!!!!

  2. I really enjoy your battle reports. All too often battle reports come across as being a very, very serious business but yours are just fun which takes me back to playing games as a kid. If we ever cross the globe to meet in real life you’ll have to teach me your simplified rules (rules can’t be too simplified for me!) – and do all the voices for the little men of course!

      1. Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you’ll live, at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our FREEDOM!!!

  3. At the rate GW is screwing things up with its fans, I hope that there is stuff your daughter can still look forward too in the future. As a person just getting into the miniature side of things and seeing the shady shit GW are pullling I am am reluctant in commiting towards the painting side at the moment. At that negative note. Hope that 2022 will be a great month for you man.

    1. Well she will inherit all my junk one day hehe. I think all big corporations do whatever they can to make money and GW is no different. I certainly don’t agree with a lot of the things they’ve done but, sadly, business is business.

  5. Aww, looks/sounds like you guys had an absolute blast. ^_^
    My dad always collected Lego sets so as a kid I had an insane amount of them at my disposal to play with. I imagine that’s how it is for your little one and all your “Little Guys”. Haha
