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.

Now with Added Stowage....

Avid readers of this blog, (ok, just me..) will know I have been gradually building up some 20mm armour to support my Chain of Command forces. So last night, I finally added some stowage that I ordered from Early War Miniatures.

Bear in mind that weathering is yet to happen. So here goes, and the close-ups are unflattering!

EWM Track Sections, jerry cans and tarpaulin

EWM camo net, jerry cans and 'bag'

 Now on with the weathering. Plenty of dust and mud I think...
