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.

Year in Review and Forward Thoughts on the New Game Year

Despite my paint and game totals I did accomplish a lot in 2012.  Started several new periods/genres, sold a ton of minis that I was never going to game with and purchased a ton more that I will.  I still have thoughts of consolidating my six wargame blogs into one, but am simply not going too.  There exists too much uniqueness to my 6mm Republic of Prussia and Duchy of Saxe-Huack blogs to mix them with others.  I have many thoughts on new and existing campaigns for the coming year.  I will continue to sell off minis that will not be gamed by myself or family and use those funds to purchase items that will see use and bring merriment.

Created my VSF Campaign.  Continued work on Balkans Campaign and WW2 German Army, WW1 French.  Colonial battles were fought.
