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.

British Solar Empire: Lt. Butler's Detachment

Arriving in London, our hero Lt. Geoffrey Arthur Charles Butler reports to the Admiralty and is informed of his next assignment.  You have been selected to lead 14 British Tars to an exotic location....Venus, inform your men as you deem fit, only ensure no dissent.  Suffice it to say you will encounter dangerous natives, wild beasts and a deadly landscape.  Begin training your men immediately, for you will set sail soon to stake the Queen's claim in a great unexplored vastness.

These 15mm minis are based on U.S. pennies and will conduct their battles using the FUBAR-VSF rules.  I wanted to flock them with a neutral material that would be suitable for battles in a myriad of environments from Africa, India, and Mars to Venus and the Moon.
