So having had to leave Targe early, (having tried the patience of my darling other for 4 hours or so), I left a figure to be entered into the Black Watch Quaich painting competition, and was pleasantly surprised to win it.
Having to return to collect the figure, plus be photographed with the prize, I found myself the fortunate recipient of a personally inscribed copy of 'Scenarios For All Ages' presented by Charles S. Grant.
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.
