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.

Eagle Decoration For My Wargame Table

Saw this at Hobby Lobby and thought it would make a great addition to my table.

WW2/Memoir 44 Dice Tray

Thought I would try to make a dice tray for games of WW2 and Memoir '44.  I printed out a US Army Broken Star logo on photo paper. I think this was a mistake for the ink is still wet after several hours but we'll see how it turns out.  I bought the tray at Hobby Lobby along with the Modge Podge to seal it up.  I tried to glue the printed picture down with craft glue but it wants to curl at the ends.  I will post a photo once, for better or worse once I have it finished.

WW2 - Start of 6mm United States Army

I have begun assembling my first United States force for my Brigadier General Solo-Wargame.  The 188th Regimental Combat Team under the command of Lt. Col Arthur Charles Butler.  So far I've spent $19 total on them.  That price includes 2 GHQ USA WW2 Sample Packs and 1 Sherman Tank with mine roller and rocket launcher off of eBay.  The 2 GHQ Sample Packs will give me 1 artillery element, 1 armor element, 3 infantry elements and a start to my HQ.  So that's 4 complete elements and a start on 2 more.  Not bad for less than $20 invested thus far.  I have the models glued down to cardboard so I can spray primer them this weekend.  I will post pictures of them once primered.

WWII - 6mm Soviet Brigade: The October Guard

Have almost finished the first 12 elements for my Second World War 6mm Project.  I present my first Soviet force for Brigadier General, the October Guard.  More elements to come and must finish the HQ base.  I still want to add light armor (LAR) some T34s (AR) and artillery (ART).  Thanks for stopping by.
