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.

Bishops in the War

Not muscular Christanity, but the British self-propelled artillery. A Valentine chassis, a big metal box and a 25lb artillery piece. They were all welded together to make a spectacularly ugly armoured fighting vehicle.

It's an ESCI kit, dating way back, liberated from a friend's stash, but I really liked the look of the thing. I also started playing with 'chipping' and I am quite pleased with the result. And yes, I know I got the doors reversed...
