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.

Anticlimax - Metal Magic Asterix Figure

So this fellow has been hanging around for a while, and today with the rain tumbling down, paying bills and generally it's pretty miserable, I thought I would take a break from the 15mm Early Imperial Romans, and paint this guy up.

Anticlimax, from 'Asterix in Britain' drinking a cup of hot water with a spot of milk.




The one thing I realise is my flesh technique is fine for 15mm, but too clumsy for 25mm. Hmm. Time to retire the Citadel 'Bronzed Flesh' and Citadel 'Flesh Wash' I have been using for years.
