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.

On the Painting Table

A very nice selection of 15mm WWI French for HitT (Hordes in the Trenches). Mainly Minifigs. Not much to them, spray black, wet brush 'Space Wolves Grey', added bags, belts and rifles, so now just waiting for that to dry thoroughly before doing a wash, and then flesh. And I just have to wait for my bases to get here from the UK. I am hoping that having to Blog my progress should get me motivated to do more painting.
