Welcome to "Adventures in Lead", a blog dedicated to the hobby of miniature wargaming. The figures and terrain on this site are mainly for a campaign set in exotic "Indostan", a distant land bearing remarkable similarities to 18th century India during the Seven Years War. Bits and pieces from other projects may pop up here as well from time to time, including colonials, gladiators, pirates, dinosaur-hunting and even some RPG'ing.
The actual campaign journal and after action reports for the Indostan campaign can be found on their own blog - "The Jewel in the Crown", the link to which is found by clicking the small image below-left.

The Bandits of Putpari






















 














  















































_______________________________________

The game was played on the 26th July using the Sharp Practice rules. I played the role of the Putpari Bandits and Umpire, while Dave played the English.
 
Dave did a great job of holding off the bandits, although the English did suffer quite a few casualties. The funniest moment was when Mr. Lovejoy sped off with his daughter to the safety of the farm, but realised they did not have any soldiers with them and had to leave again.
 
In an attempt to lessen the lengthy writeup that usually accompanies an Indostan game, I have replaced the text with a lengthy string of images instead, "comic-book" style.I have had some comments that the stories were too long, so I'd love to hear what people's opinions are about the change of format. Hope you enjoy it!
