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.

Need Grey Paint- and some more White applied

Further progress - lights in yellow and red, and highlighting some panels in pure white. Once I source some dark grey paint for the tracks, the next step will be lacquer, some decals, some more lacquer and then a light pin-wash on tracks and some of the details.

Ramjacks and Valiants (Thunderstrike in the background)

Buggies - two types of Infantry Support (Firewall AA at the back)

Bastion and Ramparts (plus Command buggies)

  1. I do like these mate - they look the business. I may have to do my FWC British(ish) next - just as an opponent for the green and golds :-)
