As I mentioned in my previous posts, I am building a Desert Rajput army for use in DBMM, mainly because it will be colourful and let me use the Museum camels I found lurking in the Man Cave. In the meantime, I committed to going to play a DBA competition this weekend, and so finally had to start slapping paint on. Apart from the Elephant, which I had done some preliminary work on, up until last night, these were basically glued to bases, and undercoated.
So last night, first layer of sand on bases, base skin colour, horse colours and metallics. This morning - first washes for the horses, some base colours, and first wash for the bases. I have till Saturday lunchtime.. watch this space...
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.
