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!

Old Glory Viking Dragon Ship - Completed
Fashioned a mast out of a 1/4" dowel from Michael's; used a piece of bamboo stick for the crossbeam and a piece of cloth soaked with white glue for the sail.
The flash from the camera kind of washes out some of the colors - the red stripes on the sail are a bit darker in natural light.
I'm not a navy man so not sure how the sail would actually be rigged, but I used thread to tie the sail to the crossbeam. Thread was also used to cinch up the sail; the red strips were painted on prior to rolling it up.
Not sure if you can tell in the photos, but the oars don't line up with the rowers' hands that well, but they look okay overall though.
I'll try to take some more photos when the lighting is better - also need to add the helmsman and leader too.
