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.

Sample Paints - 20mm WW2

I painted up some samples to get the colours and so on, and the feel for these 1/72 figures. The picture quality isn't great - but here goes.

 Rear view of the US lieutenant, and a Brit Bren Gunner, the green on the Brit needs to be darker.

One of the Armourfast/HaT Machine Gunners pack doing duty in a Sdkfz 251/1 of the 2nd Panzer Division. I am still waiting for numeric decals to arrive.

Front of the GI Lieutenant, still needs shading on the flesh and the webbing, plus the metallic bits.

And a close-up of the Panzergrenadier in Splintermuster, you can't really see the 'rain-stripes'. I should break out the good camera.
