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 - KGL LI and 71st Highland LI
These are two small units of skirmishers which I hope to use as infantry support, along with Rifles and Voltigeurs (also in small units), in a mainly cavalry Black Powder game.
KGL LI on the left and 71st Highland LI on the right. I quite like the look of buff colored straps and belts - as on the 71st.
The majority of my other British infantry are in stovepipe shakos - but I rather like the later Belgic shako too. Particularly the cords and side plume.
Painting British are a bit simpler overall than French. The latter having a lot of piping and lapel work. However, painting French elite fringed epauplettes are much easier than painting British wings.
Before starting on the Perry cavalry, I may work on some leftover Victrix Middle Guard for a small unit of skirmishing Chasseurs a pied. Thanks again for dropping by and wishing you all a great December!
