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.

Preparing for Cancon

With only five days to go, I managed to get the base coat onto the Wallachians. Dry brushing,  flock and tufts to do. 


  1. Well advanced on previous years I note!

    I trust you have a medico clearance for the event? ;-)

  2. Good luck with Cancon. I'm not going to be there this year.

  3. Sorry you wont make it, it should be a giggle.
