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!

1:12 Scale Airfix Bengal Lancer - WIP
Continuing my efforts to paint up remaining large scale figures I've had for a long time, here's the next project. It's a plastic 1:12th scale Airfix Bengal Lancer, aka Skinner's (Sikander Sahib) Horse.
I picked it up off of ebay many years ago, the original release was in the 1970's, I believe. This one a re-release from the 1990's. I originally planned to convert it into a Norman mounted knight, but after reading up on the history of the Lancers, decided it was best to keep it as is as a tribute to this fine unit - as well as the founder, Colonel James Skinner.
My buddy from Hawaii gave me a Tamiya airbrush set and I considered trying it out on this project. However, since my only previous experience with airbrushing was with those cheap Testors ones using compressed air cans, I decided to hold off. I went ahead and just used left over spray paint for the horse - a base coat of black followed by a lighter coat of brown. Anyway, just a quick WIP post to see what I'm up to.
