Well, somehow yesterday despite drink being taken, Thomo and I got to play the Rajput vs Teutons game - we finished the DBA Cancon Championships last year with me unbeaten, but we didn't actually play each other. Ever since he has been teasing me that as I hadn't beaten him, it didn't count.
Finally last night, the might of the Teutons faced the Rajputs... unfortunately, no pictures, and somehow the goose-steppers prevailed. So there is only one. I understand a slightly used Rajput army may be up for sale shortly...
And in other news, it seems Thomo managed to take pictures, and remember what happened... note that his account may contain traces of bias....
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.
