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.

Artillery Crew and 6 Pounder

Here is Dave's first British artillery crew. Both the gun and crew are Front Rank and part of their Jacobite Government range. They were commission painted, but I can claim that I at least painted the gun. British might grows, albeit slowly.
The gun does look a little inadequate compared to some of our Indian ones, but you know what they say a large gun makes up for ;). (Click the images to enlarge)


  1. Artillery Crew looks excellent! Cant wait to turn the guns loose on those foreign Indian chaps! Well now im here I can start writing some commentry from the British point of view of the battles!
    Tally ho!

  2. Very nice crew and gun.Dean

  3. Nice! (although if I was ever tempted to send out minis for painting it would probably be the guns - one of my least favorite things to prep and paint. No personality or character. Just machines. ;) )

  4. Thanks for the comments guys - unfortunately guns are some of the few things I assume I can't stuff up!

  5. They only stuff up when I try and fire the damn things

  6. Great looking gun and crew
