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!

78th Fraser Highlanders
Finished the Redoubt figures - painted up as 78th Fraser Highland Grenadiers.
Thanks to a very sunny day, the Minwax dried in record time. After spraying with Testors Dullcote, some highlighting was added to the coats; and stripes were added to the pattern.
They'll be part of the force commanded by General Wolfe, along with grenadiers from the 22nd, 40th and 45th Regiments, as well as Rangers.
Incidentally, I met the Honorary Major for the Fraser's (Vancouver, B.C. group) last year at a convention. He was a wealth of information on the regiment. The tartan he's wearing is the clan sett, which may or may not have been worn during the French and Indian War. I chose the Government pattern as the clan one would be lost with the red coat.
A small unit of French Marines, also from Redoubt, are next in the paint queue.
