A Lead Odyssey begins...

2011, A Lead Odyssey. After prevaricating for some time, I finally decided to start blogging, and record my Lead Odyssey. Which is nothing to do with Lead (Pb) the metal, and is unlikely to require my return from foreign climes in a ship with black sails.
Simply, I collect, paint and play with toy soldiers, in all sorts of sizes, plus all the accoutrements that go with them. After all, what would our tiny toys terrify the enemy with if they didn't have elephants, tanks and chariots? Traditionally, these toy soldiers were made of lead, and although now they are made of all sorts of obscure alloys, the 'lead' tag has stuck.

  1. Welcome to the dark-side - it's now enough painting the little buggers and shoving them around, but it's great having a way to talk about them!
