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!

Victrix Napoleonic Austrian Mounted Commanders and Skirmishing Infantry
Here are the two mounted commanders that came with the Victrix Austrian Grenadiers; along with the left-over foot figures.
There aren't enough grenadier bearskins for all of the figures, so ended up using some helmets and a shako for some of the foot. You would have to use bicornes for all of the officers and standard bearers to have enough bearskins for all of the foot.
The crested helmets really do give them an Austrian-look though.
Although there are no plans to build a sizeable Austrian force, I did order a box each of Perry Austrian infantry and cavalry. Maybe they'll be coupled with the Russians for some 6th Coalition battles. Anyway, just wanted to finish up the box of Victrix Austrian Grenadiers - hate leaving figures unused. Thanks again for stopping by the blog and hope you all are doing well and enjoying the hobby.
