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.
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.

Some Preliminary Photos

Here are some pictures from our trial run of Sharp Practice - the ones I mentioned that were not worth showing, well, um, here they are anyway. A lot of the miniatures need their bases finished and some of the terrain is still work in progress, note in particular the red towel thatching. We are getting closer to being able to start this campaign for real and I believe our stuff will represent the British in Indostan well. As can be seen the photos aren't great, but you get the picture, no pun intended. (Click the images to enlarge)
