My granddaughter isn't quite old enough yet but she does like to watch me paint my soldiers.

I hope to. I have given them some old Airfix WWI figures and some tanks. That was a big hit.

I hope to have many years before there are grandchildren…

As often as they visit! Our youngest grandson is 5 and he loves to play Panzer Kids with 15mm tanks

I have corrupted my children long ago. They are now 21 female, 18 male, 16 male. They love to crush their enemies and hear lamentations of the women and men….(notice one daughter; she's more blood thirsty than the boys). They all plan on bringing Grand kids over to corrupt too. On a side note had my Mother (their Grandmother) play in a "Fistull of Lead" Western shoot out over Thanksgiving last year. She was hesitant at first and then really got into her role on the battlefield. She has been talking about it ever since, and cannot wait till this Thanksgiving to play again.

You actually need grand kids in order to play with them.

Not sure if my vote really counts. Son lives halfway across the country and they only get back here a couple times a year.
My now 13 year old grandson and I have been enjoying our semi-annual
Memoir '44 games the past three years. Its about time now to bring him into the miniatures fold. Sad to say, but as a veteran and long time gamer, I usually come out on the short end of the stick in our contests. But as everyone knows, ya don't roll dice against a kid! LOL

My 'partner's' granddaughter enjoyed refighting Hastings, threw lots of sixes and wants to paint the figures (but too soon to tell if it will stick) … but my goddaughter is a regular at DBA and Bolt Action events (and is doing well). You could say the older girls wargame – but they play on computers rather than with figures (so not really my cup of tea though they do try to get me playing).

So not too bad in these parts. Wargaming is alive and well.
