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.

Stuart & Sdkfz 231 6 rad

Just a quick update.  So here are the pics.


  1. You must have quite a tank park by now - must be time to make a Bovington sign to go in front of the collection ;-)

    Looking good mate.

  2. more than you could imagine.. just really enjoying the therapy of building painting and weathering the kits. The more complex the better. So now, from being ancillary to a game (Chain of Command), they have been so much fun themselves. I now have everything from an Airfix type 97 Chi-Ha to a Dragon Jagdpanther..
