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!

Ii Naomasa in 120mm - WIP +3
Ii is pretty much finished; although his sword still needs to be painted and attached. The horse and it's bells and whistles are next.
I left the sleeves plain - without decorative mon or other designs. Didn't want it to become too "busy" and detract from the overall look - which seems appropriate for the Age of War.
The brigandine work at the top of his suneate, as well at the neck and shoulders are nicely sculpted.
The slots in the back of the cuirass are for the sashimo holder. I may not add a sashimo as I don't think high ranking commanders wore them.
