     Most of all, I want to thank the many folks who have visited my blog, and those who have left encouraging comments along the way.

HAWKs Complete Their 2014 Armies-For-Kids Project

Last Sunday, a group of HAWKs (Harford Area Weekly Kriegspielers) got together to complete this year's Armies-for-Kids Project.  This year the HAWKs will be giving away 6 painted and based sets of opposing 28mm Napoleonic Armies (One French and one Allied) to six lucky youngsters who take part in a specially designated "kids" game at this summer's Historicon.  This is the fourth year that the club has done an Armies for Kids project.
The armies this year were generously donated by Jay Hadley, Ed Mohrmann, and the staff of Nashcon.   Also, Chris Johnson is constructing a set of paper terrain to give each child along with their armies.  The HAWKs will also be giving the kids a ground cloth, dice, rulers, and rules to go with their armies.
Next year the HAWKs will be working on a 40mm ACW project for the Armies for Kids 2015 based on a core donation of troops from Maynard Creel. If any of you have 40mm ACW you'd like to donate to help fill out this project so more kids can participate, please contact me at  We are also always looking for donations of any armies for future projects.
