So with the Christmas frenzy now almost over, and in the brief hiatus between Ham and Hogmanay (that's Scottish New Year to you..) - I fled from the evidence of stuffed toy disembowelment into the Man Cave - and finally cleared the workbench so I could actually paint there.
View from the door, it's small.. and I am not going to show the view to the right, as it is monumental chaos.
But the painting desk is under a South facing window, and everything finally organised.. Hurrah!
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.
