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 War Begins...

I've been running up to a my own personal campaign for an alternate WW2. In my setting the Axis forces have virtually conquered Afrika and Russia is about on it's knees.  The U.S. African Expeditionary Force under the command of BGen Mark Clark landed in South Africa to help defend it from the encroaching Axis forces.

Major Arthur C Butler, General Clarks HQ tactician was given command of his own Armor Battalion and assigned to the 72nd Regiment. Col. Howard of the 72nd ordered Major Butler to liberate the towns of Holkiss, Kinto and Dutch Mills.  Major Butlers BN would be facing an entrenched enemy battalion.  The Major was given the additional asset of Bravo Co. 1/72 Infantry to assist him in his mission.

The Italians are 1/72 Airfix models. Also are two pictures of a M44 Sherman I painted up.
