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.

Another Cog in the wheel

While at Landwaster, I picked up what I think were Dean's last three Outpost Medieval Cogs. So for fun I thought I would assemble and rig them. The only real modification was to replace the mast, drill out the crows nest and deck, then add some 'rigging' and the cast ratlines. For something less than 3 cm long, I reckon it's pretty cute. Time for it to hit the paint shop....
