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!

Victrix Middle/Young Guard Completed & Ready for Black Powder
Here are a unit each of Fusilier-Grenadiers, Fusilier-Chasseurs and Voltigeurs of the Imperial Guard as they may have appeared while participating in the Peninsular War.
After the Minwax staining, a bit of highlighting was added - particularly on the edges of the clothing.
I was pleased to find a few flags from a previous box of Victrix French from years ago. This particular set didn't come with flags. Granted the numerals on the flags don't correspond to the units, but at arm's length you really can't make them out.
With four bases, the units can be formed into Attack Column or Square, as well as Line and March Column.
16 figures per unit looks good enough for me, and it allows for more units to deploy on a smaller table; not to mention that much less figures to paint. :)
Voltigeurs of the Guard
As mentioned in the previous post, this set comes with 60 figures, so there are 12 remaining figures which I haven't decided how to paint up. In the meanwhile, I will start on the box of Perry British Line Infantry. Thanks for stopping by and best wishes to all!
