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.

And now for something completely different ...

I've had some Foundry Darkest Africa miniatures for quite some time now, bought from an Aussie in Perth for a good price. Although based on GW plastic bases (yuck!), which I will probably re-base one day,  the paint job is pretty good.
My idea has always been to do an African safari with them - pitting the great white hunters against lions, rhinos and elephants, but of late, that idea, along with the quarry, has changed. Mind you these are only the little ones. I say, pass me the elephant gun, that's a good chap. (Click the images to enlarge)
