This site was created late in 2008, just a few years after first becoming involved in wargaming. As you can tell by the name, WAB was my introduction to this community. I appreciate the following and comments this blog receives, and give all thanks and credit to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It may seem odd that this blog appears to focus on the folly of mankind's continuous warfare, but I believe I can still enjoy this hobby so long as I put Him first in all I do. Maranatha!

Dixon's Kuroda Nagamasa - WIP +1
This was a fairly simple paint job; still waiting for the OG horse to arrive which will be his mount.
This is one of those figures that you could say looks better in-person than in a photo. Okay, the Dixon Samurai range is justly known for its so-called "pumpkin heads." I even went so far to call them "gnome-like" in appearance on a TMP post a long time ago.
However, that all said and done, I am happy with this figure (no doubt getting it free adds to the charm). He will be fine leading some OG Ashigaru and Perry Samurai in the near future.
I had hoped to capture the dour look of Nagamasa as portrayed in this painting, but I think the helmet cords obscured the face a bit.
