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.

Geezers!

These guys are from the Geezers Range from KillerB Games, which is designed to let you game 1970s cop shows. I had a lot of fun painting these, and hunting for models to match (the observant may notice the Sweeney Granada  in the background), but so far their only outing has been bug-hunting using the Ganesha Games Fear & Faith Rules. Lots of fun, and we discovered bugs don't like sawn-off shotguns..

  1. They need an Audi Quattro to fire up, Barry looks like Gene Hunt to me.

  2. Hmm.. a Quattro might be fun, but I am still looking for a 77 Cortina for a certain weedy detective.
