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.

Gaslands: MOAB 2018

After a late change in plans this years we opted to run Gaslands instead of another Very British Civil War game. It turned out to be an OK decision.
We managed to put on 4 games in total, one of which featured 10 players! The feedback was very positive and we received many comments from our players, who were all wonderfully enthusiastic about killing each other's cars and were all great sports.
A complaint about the shouting and cheering coming from our table was just the icing on the cake.
The amazing terrain was produced by Adam of The Rook and Raven who is more than happen to take advanced orders on the crowd filled bleachers and gates. 

WHAT A LOVELY DAY!!!

Fury Squadron - Heroes of the Aturi Cluster - Mission One

We have begun a Heroes of the Aturi Cluster (HotAC) campaign. HotAC is an X-wing miniatures fan-made game that pits you and your friends against an automated Imperial AI. It is very good and really gives you the sense of flying as part of a squadron. The AI is surprisingly efficient at making a decent go of blowing you to hell.

The rules can be download for free here.

For a link to the report of our first mission - Local Trouble - follow the link below:

Blood & Plunder: MOAB 2017

So MOAB is now over and was a great success. I couldn't blog any further progress on the build because I was really pressed for time.
In the end I had a week to make around 14 MDF buildings from The Rook and Raven, which I hope to revisit soon and show a detailed tutorial on. These buildings will be available publicly soon, but feel free to contact Adam who will be able to give you some further details.
Here is the finished table:
