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.

Blood on the Sands Custom Dice

 A good mate has made me a few sets of prototype dice for Blood on the Sands. I'm very keen to try them out when next demoing BotS. Each player only requires a set of six dice, and although the dice are not necessary to play BotS, I think they add a heap of theme to the game and make determining what actions your gladiator can take much easier for new players. They will also serve as a great aid during the process of finding a manufacturer.



  1. They looked great 'in the flesh' at ShireCon this weekend mate! Need to get some of my own :-)

  2. Thanks Paul - always great to see you out and about mate.
