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.

Maus - WIP

I had an hour or so the other day, and thought I should whack some paint on the Maus. It's not even as if it fits with any of my other stuff, but I do have a nephew who is a bit of a Panzer nut, so he may get it.

Still a bit to do on this one, I am going to have a good play with weathering etc. But here's how it look after initial mask and airbrush, decals, some chipping and some initial weathering.
