    Kids say the best things

    I was painting my Lord of Change today and my three year old daughter was sat across the table from me with poster paints and a ream of paper (by far the best toy in the world).

    She looks up at me and says:

    "That's a Bird."

    "Yes." I say.

    "That's a naughty bird, Daddy, it eats all the people."

    I just thought I'd share that.
    Any other parents out there with cool stuff from their kids?

    Haha, awesome!

    Can't say I'm a parent (be rather worrying if I was), although my LOTR figures have received some... interesting attention from a few somewhat younger friends of mine (and my 13-yr old brother's friends).

    I've got a 3 year old as well. He just likes to climb up in his chair and watch me paint. It's not easy to keep this hobby with a kid. I get one game a week if I'm lucky and I'm only able to paint really slowly. Most of my army isn't even primed yet. My wife nags me a bit about the hobby (both cost and time), but in return she gets to do her knitting stuff with which I don't complain.

    I'm waiting till my boy is old enough to start learning how to play games. The game store I go to also has board game nights. My playtime will go up if I can take him with me and give him a game to play while I play mine

    About the same as I have to say about designer handbags and makeup, not a lot. we're different people with a lot in common, those differences are as important as the rest. I'll shut up now before people start thinking I'm deep or something.
    Last christmas I got a waveserpent and 10 Dire avengers along with a bunch of other stuff from her. I think that says it all about how she feels: Resigned acceptance.


    As to time, I get up at 4:30AM, which gives me at least 1.5 hrs to paint or trawl the internet. Alas, I haven't played a game in months.

    your wife sounds like my mum lol!!!
    always "put this away" or "how would you feel if your sister got hold of that" or even "if you dont tidey your room i will go up there with a bin bag and throw away what i think is rubbish!!!" and always with the finances "how much have you spent on warhammer this month?" i reply "around £40" "how much have you spent on food" i reply "i havent"
    then im treated to a long rant about how much time i "waist" painting making and playing with my minis and how i sould go out more (after just arriving home from a 6 hour cycle ride with some mates).

    i also only get 1 game a week (if im lucky) it is so anoying the one day im free (sunday) its begginers day so i cant play on sunday (hence 6 hour cycle rides...).
    o well its summer now so i have all the freetime in the univerce! (sadly only game workshop on saturdays as i require a lift from my mum to my nearest shop) and she refuses to drop me any other day...

    If someone helps you REP them...

    Aha! I win.
    I haven't spent more than a pittance on GW produce since my student days, having bought like a bat out of hell beyond my ability to paint. I still have units and regiments galore to paint before I even think of getting much new stuff.

    I do make exceptions for particularly gorgeous models like the Chaos Spawn though.

    I think that GW need to change Sanuinius's name officially to Linguini.

    If they do that then they should add the prefix 'Don' to every primarch and re-write the Horus Heresy in the style of the Sopranos.
    There's a fluff book we'd pay good money for.
