The HAWKS began by having club member Buck Surdu spray prime all the figures with Krylon Fusion spray paint, half in blue, half in black. Then each club member took home a couple units to paint on their own time. The club then plans to have a couple painting-bees after the Cold Wars convention to wrap up the painting for this project.
Each figure will receive a simple drybrush and block style paint job, before being mounted on an individual base.
This is the third year for the HAWKs to participate in their annual Armies for Kids project. In the past two years they have given away a couple dozen 28mm AWI and 15mm SYW armies, representing over 1000 painted figures, to kids attending Historicon and playing in the club's Armies for Kids games.
