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.

Like a tiger!

A post on the blog, Adventures in the Indies, reminded me of our tiger. What would a game set in India be without a tiger? Here is a Foundry one from their BSBRV1 Tiger Hunt set. To accommodate this figure into our game I have tweaked the Sharp Practice random events to include a tiger. Should be a nasty hindrance (or worse) to some unsuspecting victims. This is one of the things I really like about Sharp Practice - the ability to have these little events happen that really make the game. Now tell me, who wouldn't want their little lead men  to be mauled, dragged off into the bushes and eaten by a tiger? (Click the images to enlarge)

  1. Very nice, terrain, tiger, human bait, everything. Dean

  2. Love the tiger! Must get the elephant mounted and hunt the blighter!That skin would look good on the floor of my campaign tent. Tally ho!

  3. I agree with Dean!
    I enjoy painting figures of animals in between painting units.

  4. Grrr.. Look out behind ya mister !

    Nice tiger and 'vignette'
