Welcome to AGSH. A wargaming blog dedicated to my Dad and the world's most noble hobby; collecting toy soldiers. Here toy soldiers clash in great battles from scales of 3mm to 54mm. Also the historical records of the imaginary states of the 6mm Republic of Prussia, the Kingdom of Aksum, the Principality of Huack, the Khedivate of Turkoslavia and the Duchy of Saxe-Huack.

"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.

HOTT Battle Pic: Lizardmen vs. Wood Elves

My daughter and I fought a HOTT battle today. She commanded wood elves while I led the lizardmen. My forked tongue minions inflicted heavy losses on the elves, 12AP. Here is a close up pic of lizardmen elements bringing the smack down upon some tree elves. The lizardmen won the battle with their only loss being an ensorcelled mage.


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.

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.
