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.

Recruits Con 2017

I attended Recruits again, this year. It still fun and a great value. However it seemed to me that attendance must have dropped a little bit. I am assuming this is due to moving the convention from September to August. I made over $300 in the silent auction with 13% of that from 3D printed items which was nice. Unfortunately due to time constraints and auction responsibilities I was able to catch a game. I do hope that next year I can stay Friday and Saturday night. It seems the Friday night action is getting better and there were several big games that lasted after 5pm.

Here are a few pictures of some of the tables this year.

This was part of a terrain board collection in a large wooden
box with wheels. The price was $500. It did not sell.
