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.

Liebster Awards- plus Cromwells

So, apparently there is some kind of viral/pyramid thing with "Liebster Awards" and someone has passed it on. So here is my WiP Leibster:
2 Cromwells

Starfish Crown

Befehl Panzer IIIF


  1. Nice models, love the PzIII. What's the starfish thingy, please?

  2. Hi Simon, the starfish thingy is the early stages of doing British hessian tape camouflage. If you have a look at (for example) http://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=110&art_id=491 it will give you an idea. Next step is to wet the strips down with thinned white glue.

  3. Thanks, very interesting! Looks like hard work... :-)
