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.
If you do find anything remotely interesting on this blog please leave a comment, it's what keeps these sites going and their authors motivated - Thanks for looking.

India - Large Rural Hut

This is another Indian hut with a thatched work area. It has aloft area accessed by a ladder out the back. I used filler again but with only a few patches of wattle and daub showing through. (Click the images to enlarge)

India - Rural Hut

I finished off a couple of Indian huts today. At least they are what I think Indian huts might look like.
They are cardboard based, with a covering of "weed mat" and a towel thatched roof. (Click the images to enlarge)

M.O.A.B. 2009

Rotary and me went to MOAB yesterday at Sylvania in Sydney - it was pretty good and I enjoyed myself (I think even Rotary did as well!). We've been before and it hasn't been too crash hot. But it was better this time round, probably because I'm so keen to get some wargaming up and going. They had quite a few games on (mostly Warhammer) and some had decent terrain. There were some good stalls and I picked up some cast terrain pieces from Battlefield Accessories, some gabions, dressed stone and rock walls. For the price they are very reasonable. Rotary picked up his Hyboria/Conan boardgame for a decent price and some cool resin skull piles from Mike Broadbent. I hadn't realized there were so many Australian distributors and got a good stack of business cards. One thing that was seriously lacking was participation and skirmish games, which there was none of either.
