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 Questions -
Do you want to live forever
Yes - stupid question...
Fame or fortune?
Fame - fortune is fleeting but quite frankly, neither.
What miniature are you most proud of having painted
My Jagdpanther I have been painting for months - you will get to see it eventually...
How do you deal with hobby burnout?
I just paint a different period. At the moment, 1/72 (20mm) WW2 kits are such a relief from 100's of ancients and medieval.
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
Because it never stays still..
Star Wars or Star Trek?
If you could only buy from one miniature company from now on, which one would it be?
No idea. I paint armies - not one mini. I wouldn't mind some EWM stowage..
What is your favourite take out?
Don't do take out - if I did.. probably Vindaloo, or any form of curried meat with Nan, Pappadum and rice,
