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.
