So I was down the club very briefly last night, unfortunately, I was feeling way too sick to play, but Jason handed me a bag of 15 Airfix WWII Aussies. Cheers Jason. I remember these well. Nice figures and it will be the first time I have painted figs this size in 30+ years.
Andrew also handed over the Achamaenid Persians he had for me, a mix of Black Hat and Chariot figures. They will go very nicely with my existing Chariot DBA Army. I just need to remember how I did the basing.....
Speaking to Andrew, he was playing some Polemos Napoleonics, using 6mm figures. I really need to finish mine. And I got talking about SAGA from Gripping Beast. Now as it happens, somewhere, I have a box of Gripping Beast plastic Hirdmen.
Don't you love it when a plan comes together?
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.
