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.

The Portable Wargame by Bob Cordery

I've been reading Bob Cordery's Wargames Miscellany blog for a few years now. I have quoted him on the left panel here under Wargaming Advice.  I've always found his blog interesting and often times rewarding reading. I recently purchased the epub version of his wargames rulebook "The Portable Wargame" and have enjoyed reading it and found it close to what I had in mind with my Not-HotT homebrew rules. So it's given me more to think about and perhaps some mechanics to cannibalize. It's well worth the price and after reading it I picked up the second book "Developing the Portable Wargame" epub. It too has a greater value than the small price I paid.

His use of the "Exhaustion Point" mechanic is genious! I am very happy with both purchases and will probably pick up the paperback versions too.

Pearl Harbor at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum

From an earlier visit this summer. The Pearl Harbor diorama is amazing.
