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!

1:12th Airfix Bengal Lancer - WIP +2
Here's the Lancer prior to Minwax staining. The turban wrap was the best part - trying to figure out the pattern using the box art.
And here he is after a near-fatal accident - as I was trying to insert the pencil into the bottom of the figure more securely, the tip broke off and he went flying up and hit the ground breaking off his left leg and prying off the lance. Luckily nothing serious and the leg can be glued back and lance squeezed back into the hand. The hardest part was wiping up the spots of stain on the floor and figuring what else to put the figure back on. The yellow is darker in reality - the camera flash makes it out a few shades brighter. The first photo is with natural light (well taken in normal overcast, rainy Pacific NW winter weather).
Once dried, he'll get a finish of Testors Dullcote and given highlights.
