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!

WHFB Empire Airship WIP +1
The ship is done - as well as the Master Engineer who pilots it, and one of the crewman - a gunner for the Repeater Handgun mounted on a swivel on the forward deck.
Added shields that were extras from the Order Knights kit. I believe the skull mounted at the rear is also from the Knights kit.
Here is a closeup of the Master Engineer peering through his navigating scope - a spare from the Hurricanum/Luminark kit. The Engineer's cape is from the Pistoliers kit, his arms are from the Archers kit.
The Repeater Handgun from the Pistoliers kit is mounted on a pedestal from the Hurricanum kit. The gun rest is from the Pirate Ship - not sure what it's for originally, but found it on the sprue and it looked useful.
The ship is now basically finished - once a proper hot air balloon is mounted rigging from the Pirate Ship kit will be added to platforms around the sides of the ship. The balloon will rest atop the top of the crow's nest at the top of the mast.
