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.

1942 1/72 German Armour Finished

So here they are in all their errr... glory... 




 
Now that I see the close up of them, the decals look a bit wonky in the pics. I shall have to go back and fix them up.
 
And blast you movies...  Apocalypse Now is on at the moment, it's Robert Duvall and the Ride of the Valkyries, and I remember I have a GHQ battle box of 6mm Hueys tucked away in the lead pile.  Except then I would have to do my 6mm NVA...  hmm..  Cold War Commander is appealing.

  1. Fresh from the car wash. They are very, well, grey mate!

    I reckon they need an oil wash (I know, they can take hours to do) and in this case, definitely weathering ,,, otherwise they look like they are fresh from the back of a magazine! ;-)

    They do have a certain ev-vil appeal though.

    Paint the Hueys, paint the Hueys!
