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!

The Assault Group Pike & Shotte Dragoon Horse Holders
These are from the last TAG Pike & Shotte pack from the Panzer Depot liquidation sale a few weeks ago.
Very nice sculpts, and the horses themselves are very nicely proportioned.
They're mounted on Litko 50mm rounds. I suppose they could be used for markers or possibly messengers. Or, I may have to order a box of Warlord Games Dragoons which they can join up with.
I've come to really enjoy painting up figures from this period. The clothing, in particular, with minimal details (no piping, lacing, etc.) and basic colors (mainly reds, blues and grays) - make for quick painting. The large folds in the clothing takes Minwax staining followed by highlighting very nicely too.
Thanks again for stopping by and wishing you all good health and hobby pursuits!
