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.

So now I have had hours of fun scraping my Hard Drive and other locations (how many USB drives does a man really need), but unfortunately, until recently, I have only had a fairly cheap Caplio Digital camera. It is good for most uses, but macro isn't one of them. Other photographs are courtesy of a series of Blackberrys of various quality. I now have a very good Canon EOS, so I am hoping that I can get some better pictures to include on the site.
