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.

25mm British Coal-Fueled Walker

Here is the last VSF model I will do in 25mm as I am switching to 15mm.  I had this based up for years and decided I would go ahead and paint it although I'm done with the scale.  I have not finished it, the model still needs a coat of matte to subdue the shiny but my wife took the camera to her mothers this weekend so I had to grab this pic while I could.  I will post this walker, a steam tank and a large squad of British troops for sale next week.

Yes it's an old GW 40K IG Walker fitted out with a 25mm Ral-Partha British Artillery Crewman as the pilot.

VSF The Republic of Texas: Newly Painted Elements

Finished painting and basing up 3 more elements for my Brigadier-VSF Republic of Texas Army, The Alamo Brigade.  My basing brush must have been too wet for the glue did not adhere in some small spots on the base but it's hard to tell without staring close.  Maybe I can patch them with grass later. 

The General's element along with 2 rifle elements.

VSF Venus: Atlantean Crystalmancer

I present the artillery element for my VSF Venusian Army of Atlantis Nova.  Long ago the Atlanteans harnessed the power of crystals and this Crystalmancer commands a mighty blue arcane crystal to bring down doom upon any foe.  Also the Crystalmancer's fighting blade has it's own crystal molded in the hilt making him a powerful warrior.  The ancient alter that holds the blue crystal has vines and vegetation growing on and between the stones, but the powerful crystal sits atop unblemished.

The picture doesn't do the crystal justice.

Brigadier WW1 French Army Cavalry

The first element of cavalry for my Brigadier WW1 French Army.  I have one more element on the workbench and hope to have it posted soon.

Venus: The Atlantean Army

I present the surviving Atlanteans.  An army for Brigadier Victorian Sci-Fi Battles.  Their number one enemy is their escaped lizardmen slaves, whom have populated large areas of the steamy jungle planet of Venus.  Atlantis Nova is the greatest city of Venus and stands stalwart against the lizardmen and the harsh environment of Venus.

I am thinking that these models will feature white clothing and tanned skin tones.  Their plumes will vary and the tips of their weapons will reflect the colors of the weapon crystals the Atlanteans have mastered.  Also am considering crafting a crystal artillery piece.  The individual based models behind the army are for FUBAR skirmish battles.
