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.

Houstons Ships Part 3

Some progress...


  1. My Lissa ships have arrived - more later. Plenty of yards, no sails.

    Interesting collection. I will need to make some scans of the odd Conway's page on my next trip home to brin back for reference.

    They look a bit rough but should paint up well I think.


  2. Peter took a couple of Pics of his and thye looked quite plain. i think it will take some work to gte the paint job looking good. But rigging will make a difference.
