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.

Plans Change

So some spoilsport pointed out that in DBMM 200 (240) you can't use 4 generals. There goes my plan for CinC, Sub, Ligurian and Gaesati allies.

So Plan 'B'..    and 'ze little paint-brush' has been busy tonight.


No prizes for guessing Plan 'B' :-)

Washes, some initial basing, and detail work such as shield highlights tomorrow... 

And some basing this a.m.   ready for some serious brushwork tonight.. 

Could it be 'Fulliautomatix?

Chariots, Druids, and what looks suspiciously like some Spaniards...
