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.

Just a Quickie.. Daimler II - Hasegawa

So, since the new kits arrived today, chucked one together. This is sure no 'fast-build', 48 parts, some of which are very tiny indeed. But the moulds are brilliant, everything fits together with beautiful precision, and the model itself is very pretty. Hasegawa also do the Humber Armoured car, but this one is a bit more unusual.

So here it is in all its glory...  ready for a cleanup, some stowage, and an undercoat tomorrow.
