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.

Pz III Command Tank

Been playing with one of the PSC Pz III kits. I have the other two painted up, one as a 1940 France version, the other as a later one in use in 42-43. The last one of the set of three, I decided to tart up a bit.

So I started by adding the command radio aerial, just a bit of bent wire on more wire uprights. Then a few boxes, bags, camo-net. I added wire grab handles, lifted the Notek with a bit of sprue, added a flag on the turret roof, ammo box, rifle, a front rail for stowage, some bristle aerials, bent the fenders a little...  and I am pretty happy with how this build is turning out.


More to follow when the paint goes on. It will end up being a 2nd Pz Division command tank.

And a kind soul has just pointed out I need to remove the splash guard and move the turret forward..  More surgery coming up.

And now, with splash shield shaved and turret repositioned. Actually gives it a very different look.
