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 British Artillery Completed
Greetings all. Just finished up the Victrix British Artillery set. Still need to base the limbers, but the main pieces are done.
From left to right: 5.5 inch Howitzer, 6 Pounder and 9 Pounder.
Apparently, the 9 Pounder wasn't in use in the Peninsular. The crew for this gun is in the post 1812 uniform with "Belgic" shako.
The bases are 85x55mm, so the crew fit around the guns quite snugly. I wanted them to have minimal fooprints for gaming.
The French batteries are now also on 85x55mm bases.
I may get a French Horse Artillery battery later. The British already have a couple of RHA.
Still have the British Light Dragoons and French Chasseurs a Cheval to work on - but I may start on a set of Perry French foot first. Thank you very much for visiting, and wishing you all the best!
