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 & Plunder: Sloop

This is the first Blood & Plunder ship I have completed, the Sloop. All in all I am very happy with the quality of this piece and equally pleased with the finish I've managed to achieve. Everything pictured here comes as part of the kit, except the sails, which are made from calico. The rigging was a bit fiddly, but not overly hard and in my opinion adds a lot to the finished model.
You can buy a sloop of your own from Firelock Games.


  1. Agreed looks great well done!


  2. Looks Great!
    Quite a lot of kit for your money and you've made a great job of it.

  3. A jolly nice little model, well done!

  4. Thanks all for the comments.

  5. What with your excellent terrain making in your last post and the finish you have achieved with this boat, I look forward to seeing how your project develops.
