The Scarlet Claws

My five year old daughter Niamh asked me recently if she could have a go a painting a miniature, so I said sure thing and found her plastic marine from in the garage. We sat down to paint and this what she came up, got to admit I'm very impressed its a far better effort than my first attempt at painting a marine. The only help I gave her was tidying up the base.
I asked what she wanted to call it, she said scarlet, so we went with the Scarlet Claws.

Niamh in action,

Shes painting a Night Goblin here, which didnt turn out so well.

She is also pretty good at Space Hulk.
My Mrs will kill me for turning her into a geek.


  1. That's not bad.

    The paint is pretty much in the right places, and there's even some shading in there.

    Cripes, I think she paints better than me!

  2. Thanks Jason, she drybrushed and inked, pretty cool huh. Liking your blog.

  3. Great start for the new Scarlet Claws, a very strong choice of colors. My wife warned me not long ago about exposing my daughter to the geek-life, but I think it's inevitable. Cheers!

  4. Papa JJ, its great get her into it mine loves it, just put up witht the eye rolling from your wife.
