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!

How to Paint Fallschirmjäger Camo - the Resistant Rooster's Way
Thanks to fellow-blogger Aaron's (Prufrock) suggestion of labeling my last post with a How To moniker, I went back through the blog to find stuff that may be of use. Incidentally, I came across some old photos of WIP shots from painting some Victory Force Miniatures FJ in camo. The method was discovered on Resistant Roosters and championed by a painter by the name of Giles. The tutorial is aimed at 15mm, but translates well enouth to 28mm, IMO. Please click on the links for both Splinter and Tan Water patterns. Here are the WIP photos - sorry I didn't take any step-by-step, but the linked site has some examples. The links give recommended colors to use from Vallejo. Again, these were painted a long time ago, but figured it's a good reference. Since then, I've discovered Micron Pens, and would use them to replicate the "rain drops" instead of using a brush.
