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.

DBA Redux

David Lawrence has been a fantastic asset to players of DBA in Canberra and the surrounds. He runs a number of competitions which are always well attended, and has been running Landwaster since 2002. So David being a proactive organiser, started harassing me about what army I will use on Nov 20.

I have cast around, have lots of options - but decided it was a good chance to force myself to finish painting the Ayyubids:

Ayyubid Egyptian, IV/20

1x 3Cv (Gen), 5x 3Cv, 2x 2LH, 1x 3Ax or 3Wb or 7Hd, 2x 4Bw or 2Ps, 1x 2LH or 2Ps 

Not a very competitive army, but should look pretty. The Mirliton minis are nice.

Quick - to the painting cave...
