Previously I’ve posted about the plastic army man project for Historicon 2011. Briefly, the HAWKs received a large batch of plastic AWI figures from the estate of Wally Simon. Through a series of painting days, we block painted eight Continental armies and eight British Armies. We are running two events at Historicon 11 for four kids each. Each kid who plays in the event walks away with what you see in the picture above.
Of course, they get both a Continental and British army. In addition they get a copy of Big Battles for Little Hands, in which Milk and Cookies rules are included. They also get a green ground cloth, some green moss for wooded aries, a set of suede roads, and two hills. They get a pack of cards a set of six-sided dice. They get two paper buildings to assemble. Finally, they will receive a bag of some extra figures that they can take home and paint themselves to supplement their armies.
This is pretty neat gift for a ten-year old kid!
