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!

Pole Axing and War Hammering on a Saturday Morning
Just a bit of toying around this morning with the new pole axe, and also a recently acquired war hammer.
Left off the greaves and arm harness to give it a more 15th C. Man at Arms look.
The war hammer is very heavy and quite solid. I plan to take it apart and remove the paint from the wooden shaft and refinish it with the same Dark Walnut as the pole axe shaft. I used a Dremel to cut off the two rivets for the spike - tried to straighten it as it pointing a bit off center. Still not perfect, but a work in progress.
I've found that I like fingered gauntlets a lot better than these mitten style ones. It's hard to pick up stuff with the mitten gauntlets.
Well, thanks for visiting - this interlude has me looking forward to running a War of the Roses game at Enfilade in May.
