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.

A Mysterious Box

A Mysterious box.. what can it be?

All the way from Japan...

An airbrush... 

I haven't used one of these in ages! - should be fun. Now all I have to do is buy an adapter for the Japanese plug to Oz... and we are good to go.


  1. I can't tell what brand it is. What did you get?

  2. Airtex Meteor, 0.3mm needle but a low power compressor. Cost with postage about 12000 yen, which is maybe 110 Aussie dollars. Arrived within 8 days, well packaged and it should be interesting to experiment with.
