Welcome to AGSH. A solo-wargaming blog dedicated to my father and the world's most noble hobby; collecting toy soldiers. Here toy soldiers clash in great battles from scales of 3mm to 54mm.

"Truly it can be said of him, without count are his soldiers & beyond measure his might." - Prince Edward in reference to Lord Butler & his invasion force departing London for Mars.

3D Printed Cobra HISS Tank 1/72 Scale

I am enjoying printing 1/72 scale models of GI Joe vehicles. I picked 1/72 because the plastic soldiers for that scale will be easier to convert and look the part then some other scales I first had in mind.

Custom Plastic Soldier: U.S. Navy Seal

I made this toy soldier back on August 1. I am very proud of him but I can see some areas to improve on in general. I used parts from three different plastic toy soldiers to make him.

GI Joe/Eagle Force & Cobra Command Logos

The GI Joe Cobra bug has bit again. So I printed and painted these up. They will adorn the army boxes for each force.

G.I. Joe Cobra Fang Helicopter

I've returned to collecting 1:18 scale toy soldiers, particularly Elite Force, GI Joe & The Corps. I have no gaming intention with them just "toy soldier still life" photography. Anyway I printed out a Cobra Fang attack helo but I made it too small for 1:18. I'll fix that later but for now this one may see use with traditional plastic Army Men.

The Fang looks perfect for the Galaxy guy or other
plastic Army Men.

Somewhere in Rhodesia....

54mm Napoleon & Imperial Guardsman

I casted the guardsman from Prince August molds over a decade ago. The Emperor I bought online.

3D Printed Warhammer 40,000 Thousand Sons Chaos Space Marine

I made this CSM to serve as a collectible and a kill team model.

3D Printed 2mm Blackpowder Infantry Block

This model was designed by Forward March Studios. It printed out very well. I've never even considered 2mm before as I thought 3mm was small enough but now that I can print my own miniatures, yeah, I'm in.

3D Printed Warhammer 40,000 Salamanders Space Marine

My pictures don't do this model justice. I am very proud of making and painting this figure. I want to make a shadow box display of a space marine for each chapter I like.

25mm Cave Lurker

I printed this model on my new printer. I like how it came out. I haven't decided whether to add it to an army, a warband or make it a creep.

Fantasy Hill Giant or Ogre

3D Printed Hill Giant or Ogre for 28mm gaming.

15mm Warbeast

3D Printed Warbeast. I am still undecided on which army to assign this to.

Death Korps of Krieg Grenadier

3D Printed Death Korps Grenadier.

54mm Chaos Warrior

3D Printed 54mm Chaos Warrior.

House Stark Sigil Shield from Game of Thrones

I printed out the dire wolf and attached it to a wooden shield a friend cut for me. Painted them up and glued on the dire wolf and then mounted it to the wall. I like it. Lannisters are next.

60mm Dragon Knight from the Sorcerer's Legion

I like this model so I decided to upscale one from 28mm to 60mm. I love my new printer.

The Sorcerer's Legion - 28mm 3D Printed Fantasy Army

Since my new printer arrived I've had the pleasure of producing figures of all sorts that are of a much higher quality than what my old printer produced. This army not only has 3D printed figures but also 3D printed bases 2"x3" with 3 dice slots in the back to track hits. I will post more pictures of the army once I start painting it.

50x40mm Plastic Base with Hit Die Slot

I designed and printed this base tonight. It arrived to late to help some units but will see service with others, particularly 3mm ACW and Samurai.

15mm Fantasy Battle - The Pass at Celimbor

15mm Fantasy Battle. After his defeat Arferazon humbly submitted himself before the Horned King, Anerion. The king bid him to rise and comforted him with strong words. He then assigned to him a company of unicorn riders and another company of knights. He also resupplied his men and raised his host back to full strength.

Arferazon decided to catch Galbux at the Pass of Celimbor. The very entrance to the Wood Elf Realm. He put his plan into motion to stop the orcs as they entered the narrow neck. He also sent a company of archers and the unicorn riders to ride over the Rovanon Hills and attack the trail elements of Galbux's army.

The Lord of Oak's army.

Galbux's forces are strengthend by a wandering band of orcs.

The Dragonflies begin to harrass the enemy and slow their advance
at the mouth of the Pass.

The Unicorn Riders and Elven Archer company are coming
over the hills.

The battle is bloody. Both sides grow weary.

A break for the elves. The orcs in the vanguard break
and retreat to regroup.

Elvish losses.

Orc losses included the Great Orc Galbux, Elflsayer no more.

The Woodland Realm is saved from the green menace.

15mm Fantasy The Battle of Green Rock - Black Rock Orcs Crush the Wood Elves

The Black Rock Orc Warlord Galbux is known by many names. Galbux the Vile, Galbux the Rock are but two of them. Today he earned a new one Galbux the Elfslayer. Galbux led his orc army down from the mountains and towards the woodland realm of the Wood Elves.

Elf scouts reported the approaching army. Anerion, the Horned King dispatched a force under the command of Arferazon, Lord of Oak to repel these approaching invaders and send them scurrying back to their mountain caves.

The battle commences.

Arferazon hides his retinue and a company of Elf-Spears in the
a grove near the Green Rock. He plans to spring an ambush on
the approaching Orc Warlord.

The battle goes back and forth and at first looks promising
for the Woodland Realm. Above a host of Elven Knights lock
swords with a menacing horde of Black Orcs. Both sides appear
worn and near collapse.

Arferazon's forces take their first loss as the Black Orcs
destroy the squadron of Elven Knights.

Black Orcs reinforced with Warq Riders approach the narrow
pass as Captain Fezil's warriors aided by Dragonflies wait their
approach determined to stop them.

The main battle, Arferazon sprung his trap but Galbux is
cunning and devious. The battle was long and bloody.

The Orcs break the Wood Elf line and Arferazon's host is split
in two. Although Orcs are falling and the field is turning black
from Orc blood the tide of battle is turning against the Elves.

Arferazon and his retinue survive and return to warn the Horned
King of the Orc victory. The Lord of Oak feels crushed.
