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!

Apologies, and a Padded Gambeson
First off, sincerest apologies to my fellow bloggers as I've not visited as many of your sites as I had wished. Somewhat busier than normal at work, and also returning to an earlier passion - Late Medieval armor. Seems the timing for this is fortuitous as there is so much relatively inexpensive reproduction stuff being made in India and elsewhere. I ended up getting a padded gambeson that is very similar to the one once owned by Charles VI of France, and still in existence. Here it is below with the other stuff recently acquired - the belt is actually on loan from my wife.
"We just have to step on his toes and he'll stop."
The gambeson is made in India, and was actually shipped from there and arrived in a only a couple of weeks.
"Yeah, he's up."
I should get some better foot protection, but I just got home from work and opened the box and couldn't wait to try it on. I know I'm getting on my wife's nerves asking her to take pictures of me too.
"Leave the DVD player, it's not worth it!"
Hope to get back to painting soon - but this 1:1 stuff is a bit fun. ;) Cheers!
