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.

A Skirmish on the NWF

Had a good game of Triumph & Tragedy set in the NWF, loosely based on the TSATF scenario "the Patrol" and inspired by this Last Stand Dan post. The idea is that a British patrol must repair a sabotaged telegraph cable within a small village while the dastardly Pathans come down from the hills and cause them havoc. Unfortunately I had to guess on the exact numbers of Pathans compared to British and rightly ballsed it up! The Brits made short work of the Pathans and were never truly threatened. To add injury to insult the Bengal cavalry reinforcements arrived on turn 1, the ancient Pathan cannon exploded on the first shot and when a furious mob of tribesmen finally did swarm the British screw gun, the wily Lieutenant chose to detonate the explosives he had hidden there, denying them the satisfaction. All in all a fun game with need of some tweaks to make it playable.



  1. Well the Pathan's really did have a bad day.
    Great sounding game regardless of the outcome :-)

  2. That's a crackin' looking game, Furt!

  3. That's a crackin' looking game, Furt!

  4. Good stuff! We all have these odd games at times, when nothing goes as expected.

  5. Regardless of how the game went - it looks very fine.

  6. Great looking game, Tsatf is a very underated set of rules.

  7. Looks great, love the smoke appearance. I look forward to reading more in the future.

  8. Furt, your table looks great, I'm glad you had fun! I'm the one who ran that game on Dan"s blog at Recon-2016. I would be happy to share the force make up with if you if you are interested?
