So the 'Worlds' is working well, 22 players today as Zach Russell was able to make it down to play.
After Day 2, there are 5 players with reasonable pretensions to the crown, with two games (and potentially up to 50 points up for grabs)...
75 Glen Noonan I/1 Early Sumerian
75 Andrew Card IV/32
69 John Saunders I/64 Early Japanese
Russell III/56 Khitan Liao
63 Tim Montgomery II/3 Classical Indian
Russell IV/55 Ottoman
It would take something of a miracle for anyone else to slip in, so I think the winner will have to be one of these 5... Quite a mix of armies too.
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.
