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.

Red Banner Fleet - stopping Now!

So rather than keep reworking these, I have decided they are done...



  1. They look good mate - I like your deck markings - a little finer and more elegant than mine :-)

    Hull numbers are going to be an interesting challenge that I think I will avoid taking up!

  2. An experiment with the pen suggests I might want to look at decals for the hull numbers...

  3. Nice. Will have to follow you down this path one of these years.

  4. Don't wait years, it's nice and quick and easy and cheap.
