These have been the subject of a previous post, the title of which tells a sorry tale

I find lead mountains uplifting and depressing.  Mostly I find them fun to sort through and dream of units that will be fun to paint and take to the table top.  It's just a question of focus.  But no sooner do I climb one mountain than I see another before me...

  1. Now, we are beginning to see the recounting of a proper lead pile. Still a ways to go, I'm afraid.

    1. It's a long journey with lots of distractions and possible wrong turns and delays, but progress is at least tangible when it occurs.

  2. Hi there. Nice lead mountain, shame if someone was to... buy some of it.

    Well, one of it. Maybe. :)

    I saw an old post here illustrating the 15mm female in hussar uniform from the OLD Glory French Marshals pack. I have been looking for that particular figure, but am not prepared to pay US$30 + postage to the UK for one figure.

    Looks like that pack is in your lead pile. Any chance you'd be prepare to part with the lady hussar? Please say yes!

    Johan Fuch's needs his mistress!
