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.

Rajputs Finished

So I reckon they are about done. A final lacquer or three tomorrow morning to seal them is all that's needed now.

The observant may notice two bases with camels lurking down the back, as all of a sudden I realised that in DBA I will need baggage. So these two bases were co-opted and bases done.

Apologies for the lighting.. nearly midnight now.

The army assembled


Those hard-charging nobles


  1. Very nice mate and I'm sure they'll perform admirably for you tomorrow :-)

  2. Thanks guys.. I found them pretty easy to paint, and I kept adding stuff to the horse barding and then realising it still wasn't wild enough... I need to visit more Indian restaurants for inspiration... perhaps work on how a red-flocked wallpaper horse bard would look?
