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 - "Indostan: The Jewel in the Crown", the link to which is found by clicking the small image below-left.

"The Alamo" - Warhammer Historical Rulebook

I picked up Legends of The Old West "The Alamo: Victory or Death" from Warhammer Historical yesterday. I've read over at the Indian Mutiny Wargaming Yahoo Group that they used a home brew version of it to run their company based games, which look really interesting. Although not overly happy with the Legends of the High Seas supplement, I think the unit based Alamo rules could work. It is a nice book and well worth a look, as is most of their stuff - for eye candy alone!
As a bonus, in the future, large naval engagements could be handled with the new Trafalgar supplement which looks great as well, tying the whole thing in.
The only other options we have tried as a group is Triumph and Tragedy - a set of rules created by a few guys over on the Lead Adventure Forum. They are very good and I recommend them.
