More work underway. I spent a productive afternoon drilling out the hands of some of the Spearmen, so I could add banners to each element. Then when I went to find some brass wire, of course the smallest diameter wouldn't fit the holes I had drilled. Doh! - back to the pin vice.
So now; undercoated, drybrushed light grey, and ready for some serious painting.
The 'heavy cavalry' supplied in the Essex 'Sui & Tang' line are not accurate, but I don't have the time to order alternatives and finish the painting before Cancon.. oh well.
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.
