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.

New Terrain Board Underway: The Crescent Oasis 1/600 Scale.

Have begun work on a new 3mm battlefield. A desert oasis somewhere in North Africa. The battlefield will feature an oasis, a dusty trade road, a small village as well as several rocky outgrowths. This will be my second board with permanent terrain features. The first was the lunar board.

Basic project foamboard from Hobby Lobby $3.59 with a HL 40% Coupon. The board has a cardstock surface on front and back with foam between.

Trade road marked and the oasis cut out..
My first attempt at flocking the battlefield failed as I used a HL spray adhesive glue which did not do anything but make my hands and arms sticky. Will use the tried and true but timely Elmers glue tomorrow.
