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 - Crupellarius and Dimachaerus

A couple more Blood on the Sands armatura sheets for your viewing pleasure. This time two "exotic" types, the Crupellarius and Dimachaerus. Historically, little is known about either of these types as they are mentioned only once or twice, but both make for some interesting "spice". Matt Leahy (Dr Mathias) has done an amazing job on these considering there is little to go on and I know the Crupellarius was really worrying him - especially that helmet. I think he's done a great job. Well done Matt.



  1. Very fine indeed. They both look really interesting to bring to the arena!

  2. Looks great. How close are you to releasing it.

  3. Wonderful reference for someone getting into this period.
    Thanks for sharing,

  4. @Chris - as you would know mate these things take time. The rules are complete and heavily play tested, but they need a lot more polish before I can release them for purchase. Putting a time frame on this is almost as difficult a task!

  5. This is absolutely stunning and even reading the play report made me feel like I am in the mind of a gladiator! is there any chance I could get a copy of the rules or be involved with playtesting? i'm in Australia, have a group of historical wargamers and we'd love to take a crack at this.
