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.

The Grand Kingdom of Westmark

The Grand Kingdom of Westmark could more aptly be titled an empire, since it is a confederation of eight petty kingdoms ruled by a single High King.  One hundred years ago the Eight Kingdoms were united by King Robert Baratheon, the other 7 kings still held power in their domains but swore fealty to Robert and had their titles changed to "Lord of" whichever of the Eight Kingdoms they ruled.  Those whom Robert trusted were sworn Wardens and allowed to maintain an army.  Westmark is ruled from the city of King's Landing on the coastal plain.  Robert tried in vain to add Everwinter as a vassal but he was soundly defeated by the Winter King's armies.
