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 in progress

So, I have tried to swap my 1/72 spares from PSC - and got no interest locally. So I decided that as well as having 1944-45 stuff, I should have some 1942 German Invasion of the Soviet Union stuff. Ok, so I just figured that painting stuff grey was easy.

So I threw together a PzIII G and a Stug III G (early) - from the PSC kits.  Then realised how hard it was to make grey look interesting and real.

So far: - black undercoat..    overspray grey - not so heavy it was dense. Then - dry-brush neutral grey, pick out tools, and wash with thinned GW Badab Black.

So here they are works in progress:
