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.

2017 in Review...

Happy new year wishes for 2018 to all whom read this.  I had some hobby activity each month except March. I began toy soldier still life photography this year and it's been a fun addition. My painting numbers were plain dismal. However I did find time to rebase many models for use with new home rules. Speaking of those I discovered The Portable Wargame by Bob Cordery and love it. I have meshed his rules up with my own and come up with a system that scratches my particular gaming itch for army battles. 

I had a pretty good Spring and Summer in the hobby but things trailed off in the fall at the start of deer season as hunting has become a new hobby for me that I enjoy. I have given up on some parts of wargaming; for example 28mm Warhammer mass battles, but will use those models for Frostgrave-Mordheim type games. I simply don't have the time to paint 28mm models. Again, best wishes and happy new year.
