So the Sui showed up to Cancon last year..
But for some reason, I had never finished the baggage or the artillery. So I cobbled together some figures from the spares box, Chinese artillerymen, peasant horde, and leavened them with some mules and a couple of Roman engineers. I had intended to show 'Great Wall' repairs, but this didn't work out so well. Oh, and I had gone and bought an acrylic 'turquoise' colour, which I rather like.
Anyway, here they are:
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.
