In my last post, I started the process of painting some Panzer Grenadiers, and wanted to give the impression of an oak-leaf camouflage. In this scale, it's not easy, especially as I didn't want to spend an hour per figure. I thought I could get an impression by simply dabbing using an old stiff paintbrush. You can judge for yourself how successful it was. Personally, I think the brown I used was too dark for this scale, and looks almost black.
Comments, suggestions and criticisms welcomed... as always
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.
