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!

McFarlane 7" Space Marines Salamander - WIP
Still need to paint the chapter icons on the pauldrons, but the main figure is pretty much done.
I stripped off the initial green because it wasn't drying; figured out the spray paint was a lacquer and didn't react well to the plastic. Ended up re-painting it with a can of Army Painter Goblin Green from a local hobby store. This was the first can of Army Painter spray paint I've ever bought, but I have to say it's a good paint. A lot more expensive than the stuff I usually would use from hardware stores, but I couldn't find a green that was close for Salamanders. In fact, some may say it's a bit light, but I like how it turned out.
Next up is the Space Wolves figure - which I ended up picking up a can of Army Painter Wolf Grey since it's another unique color that I couldn't find a match for at hardware stores. Anyway, the Wolf Grey might also be a good base color for the soon-to-be released Wargames Atlantic Poilus which I plan to get a box of. Anyway, thanks for the indulgence and until the next post, best wishes to you all.
