Welcome to AGSH. A solo-wargames 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 2mm to 1/6 scale.

"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.

3D Printed 28mm U.S.S. Monitor - ACW Ironclad

Over the course of several days I printed out the pieces for the Union Ironclad, the U.S.S. Monitor. Though not my scale. I thought it would be a fun print and assembly. I may print another in 6mm but before that I intend to print the Confederate Ironclad the C.S.S. Arkansas. This model will be listed on my Toy Soldiers for Sale page and if not sold in a month or so will travel with me to Recruits Con for the silent auction.

3D Printed Hex Terrain Tiles for Random Mini Campaign Maps

It is my plan to use these hexes to create maps for random one off mini-campaigns. I am working up a method for drawing and placement. Here are some pictures and an example of the draw.

Begin with first drawn hex in center.

Place new draws clockwise from top.

Continue with clockwise placement.

Now I added a rule where any arctic tiles are placed on the top
and bottom of the map.

Now if I can only find the scenario and cards for Tigers in the Snow...

Tour of the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola FL

I have been to the Naval Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola. This was my third and longest visit. Three plus hours touring halls and displays and loved every minute of it.

Tour of the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum & the USS Razorback.

I had the opportunity to visit the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum and their submarine the USS Razorback. They have some great dioramas and I will post pictures of those later in the year. For now here are some pictures and a short video I made aboard the submarine.
