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.

Gangs of Rome - Temple

I treated myself to a break from my ongoing work on Roman tabernae for Gangs of Rome and instead dedicated some time to completing a Sarissa Precision Temple. The finished kit makes for quite an impressive and imposing build and will form the center of my marketplace/forum. I opted to make this a temple to Neptune simply because it was the best free Roman god statue STL I could find. I went for a classic colour palette that may well be more Hollywood than historical but I much prefer the clean white look.

I intended to do some pedimental sculptures for the tympanum by adjusting existing 3D files but nothing I came up with looked right. I would love for a 3D artist to design a simple tympanum that would specifically suit Sarissa's temple.

As I have mentioned before, I am really impressed with the appearance of Sarissa's pillars in this range. For mdf I think they really look the part and they have done a great job on their construction, which is both simple and very effective. 

Right - back to butcher shops and bakeries for me...



  1. Great addition to your small cornerof Rome, and big enough to have a fight inside on its own.

    1. Thanks Joe. It is well big enough to hold some action.
