A Day at the Home of the WAB Corner

Last Saturday, Dean M. invited me to his home to play in his epic scenario re-fighting the Siege of Haengju.  Now Dean has already posted a detailed narrative of the painful blow by blow on his blog and you can check it out there.

But I had taken some additional pictures that show the beauty of his miniatures and the overall scope of the battle, so here they are:

The Korean defenders are unable to stop the ferocity of the Samurai who successfully breach the first defensive wall.

Ultimately the Japanese breach the upper wall and route a sizable number of the Korean defenders!  Unlike actually history, today at the home of WAB Corner, Japan is victorious!  A great day and a great game.  Thanks Dean for putting it together and James for being a sporting opponent.

WAB- Late Era Christian Spanish (1101-1250 AD)

As T3 and the Warhammer Ancient Battles World Championships 2014 draws ever nearer, I am making a dedicated drive to have a newly painted army ready for the event.  After much debate and pouring through miniatures, I have decided to go with Late Christian Spanish out of AoA2.  I will be sure and update everyone with photos and details as I progress towards my goal.  August 15th, is not that far away!  Wish me luck.
