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.

A Very Arkansas Civil War or the 2nd American Civil War 1930s

I've decided to open this campaign idea back up. I am thinking I will use 1/72 scale toy soldiers and Memoir '44 along with a homebrewed skirmish game to fight out the battles of the campaign.  For now I think I will keep the campaign confined within my home state of Arkansas.  I will write up a better background but for now it will be FDR was ousted in a coup and the union fell apart. When the union fell the state government declared a republic and nationalized both the State and National Guards. Workers in Pine Bluff organized the Arkansas Workers Party with the intent of turning the state into a communist nation. The of course Charles Lindbergh sent a faction of his cronies down to the natural state to ensure that the state becomes a part of a larger future fascist America. Here are the flags of my factions:

The Arkansas Republic

The Peoples Republic of Arkansas
