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?

So I was playing around making something tonight...

Any guesses as to what it might become?

And the only clue is..  it's still incomplete..


  1. The start of your new bed celebrating the commencement of your new career as a swamy?

    A mantlet for a Chinese restaurant?

    A devilishly painful Scottish version of nine men's morris?

    An arcane cooking instrument to help with the barbecuing of the odd passing wildebeest?

    All of the above?

  2. Close.. but no cigar.. should be finished by Sunday though...

  3. look like tree trunks.... your putting together woods?

  4. Hi Phil, suggest you check the next post, when all may become clearer...
