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!

Black Powder Casualty Markers - British Rifles
Made a pair of casualty markers using a spare plastic sprue from a Perry box. One is painted as the 60th and the other the 95th. The backpacks have decals from Alban Miniatures.
The 95th guy was used pretty much as is off the sprue - except for the positioning of the arms. The 60th guy was converted a little - mainly his legs and left arm. Green Stuff was used for the repositioning. As with the other casualty markers, cheap plastic poker chips are used along with some acrylic caulking for the bases.
I also painted up a Foundry Russian Artillery crew as I had left over green paint used for the Rifles. I should've waited longer for the Minwax to dry - the Dullcote is still a little shiny.
