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 at Leviathan 2013

Yesterday I attended Leviathan, a small local wargaming convention, and was convinced to take along my new WIP gladiator rule set, Blood on the Sands.
I managed to have quite a few games and a couple of people even sat in to try them out. A lot of blood was shed!! The rules are progressing nicely and playtesting continues to iron out any unbalances. Gladiator fighting is a tricky business.

A retiaruis and secutor - always a fun bout.

The secutor draws first blood to the flashy netman.

Although he put up a good fight the retiarius is defeated, but is granted missio.

The mighty Livia, a descendant of Xena no doubt, over her fallen foe Dacum.

The state Dacum finished in - a large hole in his stomach and his shield arm near missing!!
