Well my 6 year old son has decided to get in the painting game as well. Months ago I bought him some cheap army toys for him to paint and a few weeks ago he wanted to paint real Dust Tactics guys. Well I wasn't going to let him anywhere near my guys but after checking with my wife we decided to let him buy some with his money if he wanted to. He is a good saver and rarely has reason/opportunity to buy things so I got him a couple of squads online for only $7.

Here are his version of the Laser Grenadiers. I tried to get him to wash but he was happy how they are. I'm not a father that pushes to hard. After a couple of suggestions, I let him do whatever he wanted so he enjoy his painting.

Here are his Battle Grenadiers. The seller also threw in an extra guy so he has a squad of 7. He was so excited by this. The only painting I did to help was the iron cross on the shoulder pad.

He has also painted up a Laventiy Beria and an Airblaster and I need to take photos of that.

Sturmpioniere, I painted in blue. I am thinking of gong back and changing the "eyes" to red instead of German yellow. I like the red on the Laser Grenadiers and have also painted the Heavy Laser's eye's red (WIP, hopefully coming up in a few weeks: dark grey and gold with big brass laser).

Death Dealers: my wife painted these except for the fine details that I finished off such as the goggles. We kept the base green of the model.

Everything your family and yourself painted looks great. Can't wait to see your sons airblaster and tank.
