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!

Carroccio of the Archbishop of Cologne
Or at least my interpretation of it from what some sources say was in the form of a wooden castle.
This is a converted model of an Old Glory Hussite war wagon. I widened the wagon and also added crenelations to the sides. The cross at the top of the flag pole is made from styrene plastic - scoured to make it appear to be wooden. The tower is from an Academy Roman Warship kit.
The tower and standard are removable.
This will be the Army Standard Carroccio for an Early-HRE Clerical Army. I'm still waiting on some spears from North Star to add to the knights of this army. Otherwise, the army is basically finished. My next project will likely be a unit of Foundry Silvershields - also needing the North Star spears/pikes. Oh, I guess I will add a team of oxen to pull the wagon; at some later date.
