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.

Maurice & Cancon

Well, a pleasant surprise, I ordered Maurice on 2 January, and it was delivered to my office today 11 January. 9 days from ordering US to Oz. Well done Brigade Games.

Cancon is also looming. Looks like we will have at least 24 players for DBMM2 this year, which is very pleasing.


  1. You could consider using Windows Live Writer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Live_Writer for updating blog posts.

    I use it all the time on my WordPress powered site as it provides WordPress support as well as Blogger.

    Perhaps it bypasses the Picasa issue.

  2. Blogger picture uploader is working ok with me.
