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.

Blood on the Sands - Counter Example

Just a quick post to say that work is continuing on Blood on the Sands. Dr Mathias (Matt Leahy) has completed the last components of the game for me - the counters.
Without Matt's help the game would be truly a different experience! Thanks again Matt.

Your comments would be appreciated.

Blood on the Sands - Counters


  1. I like the "mosaic" look to the counters very much.

  2. Very nice signature mosaic game markers. Nice touch/class act.

  3. They're beautiful! I know I've been quiet recently, but I have been following (and even playing a bit) the development of BotS, and it's getting pretty damn perfect. Good work, sir!

  4. Awesome counters...what we'd expect with anything he does...!

  5. I've been a keen reader for some time. Will the game eventually be available to buy? I love the look of it. I'm quite smitten by MTS but this looks even better

  6. @ Major Catastrophe - I've been very slack with the blog lately, but work continues on BotS and my plans are still to publish the game. This thread http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=51608.0 on the Lead Adventure forum is still active and updated regularly.

  7. Hope to see this game available soon - just like a number of other gamers I am still searching for a Gladiator game that I am happy with & this looks like it might be the one!
