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!

Hinchliffe Models Taisho - WIP +3
In the home stretch - only need to do the weapons - bow, quiver and sword/scabbard; oh, and the large knot for the back of the armor.
I got lazy and failed to paint the inside of the shoulder armor.
The dragon fly motif was a favorite for samurai as it was believed to never back up - that is, retreat.
A large knot will go on the back of the cuirass.
During the Heian period, kote - or sleeve armor, was usually only worn on the left, bow holding arm.
