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.

I generally dislike markers in a game. Apart from being a bear of very little brain, who prefers not to have to remember states, I generally dislike table clutter. If I have invested in aesthetically pleasing figures, terrain etc.. I don't want it cluttered up with chits, tokens, bits of paper, etc. But sometimes, you just have to have a marker. The ones in the pictures above are from Litko, who make a very nice range that I use especially with DBSA.
The game was DBSA vs Thomo, who took my German East Asian Fleet vs my French. Sadly for him, many of the explosions seem to be on the German ships, (in white).
