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.

So I ordered some Dragon Armor pre-builds, on sale from Milsims in Melbourne, and they arrived yesterday.

The Box!

Tiger 1

A pair of Jeeps
Lovely models, cheaper than plastic kits, extremely detailed and well painted. They still have Maus, E100, Stug, Tiger, Jagdtiger, Sturmtiger, Jeeps, LVT etc..  go have a look. A great bargain.

  1. Combat Tanks magazine over here was much the same - nice painted model and the magazine for less than a plastic kit.
