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.

In Memory... Donald Featherstone.

A legend in the wargames community passed away this week.  I never had the pleasure to meet Mr. Featherstone but from what I've read he was very kind and attentive to those he met while at the UK conventions, always eager to autograph a book.  I am lucky enough to possess several of his books and one has his autograph.  Mr. Featherstone is considered by myself and many others to be one of the fathers of modern wargaming along with Charles Grant, Tony Bath and Jack Scruby.  

Rest in peace good sir.

Mr. Featherstone at home in his last years.
