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!

Perry Mounted Samurai Completed
In spite of a power outage for over 30 hours, I managed to finish up these guys. Heck, I needed something to do.
I painted up the two remaining horses by battery operated lighting. Not as bright as I'd wanted, but it worked. I had to hold the figures up next to the light to get them done. That little transistor radio was all the entertainment we had while the power was out - actually listened to a news broadcast to hear what was going on.
Power went about 7:00am yesterday due to our winter weather - probably trees falling on power lines. It only just came back on about an hour or so ago - 4:00pm the next day. I wasn't alone, about 300,000 paying customers were out of power for most of this period. That's just the households, so I'm sure you can double that number easily. Anyway, only minor damage to our property - a shade tree our front yard couldn't take the prolonged period ice remained on its limbs. Here are my two boys cleaning up the damage.
The backyard looks okay - the bamboo and pine didn't appear broken, and hopefully should straighten up after all the ice comes off.
