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.

2016 in Review

Happy New Year! 2016 started out pretty strong in the hobby but some unexpected changes occurred in mid-September that ground my war to a virtual halt. My painting numbers more than tripled from 2015 but the amount of battles fought dropped to less than half of that year.

I don't expect a big hobby rebound in 2017 but will aim for a steady progression of my war effort.I am still feeling a strong pull to microscales and may begin to push further in that direction.

2016 Painting
3mm: 220
6mm: 7
10mm:
15mm: 3
1/72:
14
25mm: 4
54mm: 1
Terrain/Acc: 7
Total: 256

 2016 Battles
Ancients: 1
Risk: 1
Colonial: 3
Fantasy: 5
World War II: 4
Total: 14

14 fights! 14 fights??

I got more time than that over a 4-holer in the ROK! You need to get your shit together, Marine!

In all seriousness, I understand all too well encroachments by 'real life,' I hope it's nothing too rough, and hope you and yours are having a great holiday season.

V/R,
Jack
