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.

Just a quick French

S-Model Hotchkiss 35 with an AB crewman.


  1. Oh now that is just sweet - I really like that beastie and would be happy to lose with it again and again and again!

    Good to see you are back to relaxing with the painting :-)

  2. That is one beautifully painted model.

  3. Thanks guys, I have a Char IB to go with it, but still in the painting stages.
