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!

40K Land Speeder(s) - WIP
Just a quick update to show the basic color pattern - highlighting and decals still need to be added. This follows the color scheme of the famed Gulf Porsche 917s which dominated Le Mans in the early 1970's.
The 1:32nd scale Airfix Porsche 917 kit has been chopped and reconfigured to approximate the footprint of the GW Land Speeder. The crewmen, weapons and ancillary parts have been magnetized to allow the use of the Porsche model in friendly games with non-GW models. Conversely, the parts can be used on the proper-GW model for more model-restrictive games.
Here is the "regulation" GW Land Speeder.
All weapons are magnetized and interchangeable between the two models.
Here are the magnetized components off the models.
