Why is this here..


A Lead Odyssey is about my hobby, collecting, painting and playing with toy soldiers. It will cover the various rulesets I use, the figures I am painting (very slowly), and some games. Thanks to Harry Pearson for the Achtung Schweinehund reference. The uniform jacket in the picture was adapted from a safari suit, the weapon is a wooden sub-machine gun made by me and my dad. Cool eh?

I play a range of scales, rules and periods.. scales are anything from 6mm, through 15mm to 28mm for little men, but I also use 1/1200 for Napoleonic Naval, and 1/3000 for Pre-Dreadnought period Naval.

My tastes are eclectic, but I have avoided most 'Fantasy' Games for a few years, as I couldn't get into the usual suspects for Fantasy Battles, and didn't have a decent group to play role-playing style games.

French Part 2

Discovered some 30 x 30 mm bases lurking in the bottom of the paint box. So was able to base up most of my French. Also touched up the FT17, but a comparison of the two models shows they are hugely different in size. I think one of them is Minifigs and one QRF, but I can't remember which! If anyone can help - please post.

So here's Angel & Eva, with their supporting cast of 75mm, and Hotchkiss MG. Mixed in there are a FOO, a General (with compulsory Red Kepi), at rear, the rifle bases, at front the Trench Raiders, with bombs and pistols.
