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!

Eagles of Empire Bavarian Line Infantry
Here are two 8-man squads of Bavarian Line Infantry - one with dark green facings and the other with orange facings.
I used Vallejo Ultramarine Blue for the base uniform color and highlighted with Vallejo Deep Sky Blue. Maybe a little lighter than the actual uniform color, but this helps distinguish them from the darker blue coated Prussians and French.
The nice flag was downloaded from Warflags. Osprey says most flag staffs had a "sitting lion" as a finial, but a few units did have the spear point.
As with the Prussians, it appears no two figures are posed exactly alike - very impressive.
This is what they looked like after staining with Minwax Tudor Satin stain.
And with the basic block painting prior to the staining.
I must say, I kind of like the Ultramarine Blue look, before the highlighting. Next up are the French Line Infantry. Until then, happy painting and good gaming to you all!
