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.

Guess What - Part 2

I think it might be a little easier to guess now..  sort of taking shape.

PS.  I hadn't realised before how hard it was to drill holes in dice...


  1. Oh, that's made it a bit tougher but hey, I'll give it a go!

    1. A dice tower that failed to get off the ground.

    2. A Gobi privvy especially designed for number twos (I'm assuming number ones are dealt with round the back).

    3. The court where Vlad the Impaler passes judgement on dice rolls.

    4. The retirement home for the dice used in the last tournament.

    There, must hae it in that lot!

  2. Close.. but no coconut.. it's what you build using cocktail sticks and paper when you realise three days out from a DBA tournament that you have no camp for your Ottomans.. now in glorious (and tacky) Ottoman technicolour.
