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: Spanish Warehouse

I have finished my first purpose built structure for Blood & Plunder, a Spanish style warehouse. The building features a removable roof and doors. The pan tile roof is made from a non-slip mat, which I will do a tutorial on shortly.

Blood & Plunder: Port Wall Continued


Continuing with the terrain for Blood & Plunder, I have completed another long section of port wall with a set of stairs. More of the same techniques used here and here, but I thought I'd show how simple the stairs were to make.
The port wall and stairs
Scribe the blue foam as described under the gun battery tutorial
Use the bricks as a guide and cut out the steps
You should end up with something like this
I created a small landing by inscribing a block of blue foam and also completed a length of wall
I fixed the stairs and block of foam together with PVA and the aid of some toothpicks
The three parts all glued together
The length of wall has some wooden pylons dispersed along it
I also made some "iron" rings to set into the wall, which were made by bending some small gauge wire
Painted, along with a waterline stain...
...and the "iron" ring set in place
The finished length of wall and stairs
The new section in position
