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 Samurai Light Field Gun - WIP +1
Finished the crew; the sculpting where the lacing goes is raised so dry-brushing really sped things up.
The backs of these guys have holes for attaching sashimono; which I may add once I order some from Perry. Although I wonder if a gun crew would wear these with the type of duty they had to perform.
Here are a couple more photos from different angles. Not sure how many folks have seen Dixon Samurai in person, so maybe this will help assess how they look. I think their cartoonishly wide faces are the main drawback for them fitting in with other lines.
The Old Glory Mounted Samurai I won off of ebay arrived today too. Although the horses look really good, I think I'm going to go with the Dixon horse for Nagamasa. His wide faces makes the OG horses head look odd; the Dixon horse also has a fairly wide face!
