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.

Whose Side?

Whose side would you choose? Actually, maybe now we have visual evidence of how Germany managed to keep going till '45 when Italy bowed out earlier...

King Tiger and L33... I thought the comparison might be fun... 


  1. Reminds me of the pictures of the Type 95 tanks on the deck of the Sherman tank.

  2. Italy because it would make for a far more interesting game. ;)
