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!

Foundry SYW British Grenadiers - WIP
Not much to look at right now, but wanted to post a painting update. Slowly adding some color to these guys - so far only the flesh and the facing colors. They are going to be Louisbourg Grenadiers with a unit each of the 22nd, 40th and 45th Foot. Probably hard to make out in the photo below, but I tried to give different tones for the two buff colored facings of the 22nd and 40th foot guys. I also see that in my production line painting method, I forgot that the musician should be in reverse colors.
Here are the caps for the different units.
Next will be the white lacing and then the red coats. The painting method I'm using is the same as I've used for Napoleonics - black undercoat, leaving certain areas alone to simulate black-lining. Also, plan to use Minwax to bring out the fine details like the those on the caps and lacing.
