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.

Latest Additions

For the last post of the year I thought I'd share with you some of our latest additions to the fight in Indostan. They include both some of Dave's commissioned miniatures as well as a few painted by myself. The British miniatures are all exclusively Front Rank, the Indostani mostly Foundry. A couple have already been shown elsewhere.
We endeavor to have a game this Sunday, the first of the year (and the first of many I hope), so a report should follow shortly. (Click the images to enlarge)

  1. I'm looking forward to your report of Sunday's game.

    What rules do you plan to use?

  2. Thanks for the comments gents.
    Jeff, we will use Sharp Practice and I think there may be some rockets involved.

  3. Saw you were a follower on my blog (Doc's Art of War) but have only belatedly found yours. Great stuff, love the battle reports and the colourful figures. We game a bit later - Sikh Wars, Mutiny - using Black Powder (see some earlier posts on my blog) but I know a few of the guys would love this stuff! I really enjoyed it.


  4. Great to have you aboard Doc - I have often admired your stuff and love your Mutiny game.

  5. Very nice figures. The Governor's retinue looks amazing

  6. Beautiful figures! Almost too nice to game with! ;) Just bought Sharp Practice myself. I'm looking forward to your action reports.

  7. Beautiful figures there. I've heard very good things about Sharp Practice but have never had a game myself - like AJ I recently bought it too! Looking forward to the report.
