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.

"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.

Star Wars - 3D Printed Assault on Hoth Miniatures

I started printing these pieces after lunch today. They print pretty quick and are close enough for my abstract gaming mind to imagine them being what they represent. The small shield generator hex is the original, the large one is one I sized up to Memoir '44 standards. I also reworked the files for the Hoth Turret and the Dish Gun but I haven't printed my reworks yet. I think this will be a fun project. It is an interesting mix of scales. The soldiers come out to around 12mm. The AT-ST is closer to 3mm.

WW2 - 3D Printed 28mm Russian T-34 Tank

I am not sure how long this took to print as I went to bed and then work. I suspect 13+ hours. Anyway it came out great I think!

Game Day; June 10th 2017

My son James came down to visit me today. We went to the theater to see "The Mummy" starring Tom Cruise. Then came home and played a game of Risk 2210, Stratego and Checkers. As I mentioned in my previous post, it has been a good day.

My Reaper Bones 3 KS package arrived today. Been a great day.

15mm Warhammer 40,000 - Space Marine Terminators

I resized these from Epic scale to 15mm. They printed out very nicely. I printed out 2 bases of SM Terminators to go with my 15mm Ultramarines force currently in development.

3D Printing - Warhammer 40K Chimera 28mm

I decided to run a test print for my DaVinci and chose the 28mm Imperial Guard Chimera. It took 13+ hours to print. I think it came out really good. Cost to print was well under $2.00. I am very pleased with it.

Print supports removed.
