Nice weather, did a bit in the garden, then on to applying ink washes etc to the Litter.
And then some basing work.
I spread slightly watered white glue all over the base, then sprinkle some 'rocks' (actually, this is decorative gold-covered gravel that was given to us to go in the bottom of a candle holder thingy, but they are nice and evenly sized,) then dip in fine sand (actually from the Baccus Basing Kit).
It is one of my least favourite things to do, so I am glad that's over with.
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.
