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.

Samurai Progress

First stage of basing complete, just the white glue and sand. Next steps are a black wash, then some dry-brush, flock and tufts (thanks 'Leadbear').

They haven't turned out as nice as I had hoped, my fault, not the castings. I probably should have layered up from white, not gone black undercoat, light-grey wet-brush and washes/glazes. Still, a good base distracts the eye, and I am considering going back and adding more highlights to the faces.

I might.. but then again, I should have made better progress on the Franks for Wintercon by now.
