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.

A Viking we Will Go

Ok, so I found the GB Hirdmen. Very pleasantly surprised at how smoothly they go together. I did one sprue, and I reckon they look the business. They should paint up very easily. I am thinking nice washed out colours with some decorative borders. Lots of ink on hair/beards. Ultimately, they will be going on 30 mm round bases. And there another 34 in the pack  Good value.
