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.

Crafting: 6mm Matchstick Toy Soldiers

I read Steve Turner's article on "How to Construct Home-Made 6mm Scale Units from Wood" over on the Lone Warrior website and thought I would give it a go. Below are some pictures from my effort. Very small time & money investment but overall I am not very happy with them. I've seen some homemade armies in 6mm that look great like Kenneth Van Pelt's 6mm Romans & Celts.  I crafted 30 toy soldiers but will not add that number to my yearly total as it seems false. Instead I will add 2 to the 6mm numbers, 1 for each row of matchstick troops.
