Welcome to AGSH. A solo-wargames 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 2mm to 1/6 scale.

"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.

Prussian Navy Adds First 4 Vessels.

The Prussian Navy at last set to sea with 4 new vessels for their Baltic fleet. The Prussian ships were purchased from Venezuela in an arms deal signed last year during a visit by the Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. The photo shows 3 cutter class vessels, the Pillau, the Goldap, and the Neidenburg and 1 patrol craft.

Note on minis: I am not sure of the manufacturer or scale, I think 1/3600.

Here are the first 2 elements (MG) of the Principality of Huack Royal Army. Also pictured is an element of Moden Guards (on loan from my WW1 German Army.) The MG crews are in their Huack Red uniforms with khaki trench coats.

British Colonial Army

Note the piper!
Artillery, MG and Cavalry on the painting bench.

The Zulu Impi

The Zulu Impi! 2 Generals, 9 Warbands, 2 Skirmishers and 2 dead markers. In the center front we have Chiefs Unga and Bunga. In the rear flanks are the skirmishers with captured British rifles, with one wearing a red service coat. Only 1 of the chiefs will lead the army at a time. Most likely Unga.

French Army General Element

Not quite a French Army but I did manage to paint quite a few figures, mostly Colonials, but I was motivated for the command element of my soon to be WW1 French Army. The kneeling soldier is a junior officer holding a map.
