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.

Rebased Both Imaginary Armies for New Wargame Rules.

I have finished rebasing my fictional armies for the new wargame rules I am developing based on my Brigadier General wargame. Unit base sizes are 1" square with the DSH baggage camp on an 1.5" square base. All these bases are pre-made wood pieces bought at Hobby Lobby in small bags. Each bag comes with 135 pieces for $2.99 retail but you can always slap their 40% coupon on that. As you can see the Bittburg Army is smaller but has enough to field a good game. I am in the process of cleaning up some old models to add to them. The models on the round bases are officers with the larger base holding the general and the smaller bases holding captains. The square bases with a single foot model are skirmishers. Units in my new game are thus far Army General, Captains, Muskets, Guard, Cavalry, Artillery, Militia, Baggage and Skirmishers. Nothing fancy and very abstract.

Sounds and looks good. A really nice small and manageable army (or 2 armies). Probably perfect for a small table, too.
