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.

Space Soldier Somewhere in the Arkansas System

Took these photographs in Beaver, AR not too far from the one lane wooden suspension bridge. The middle picture was the money shot but I failed to get down in the mire to take a proper photo and this was the result. Still I'm learning and am finding enjoyment.



25mm Fantasy Ogre Lords Army

I rebased my Ogre Kingdoms army onto round bases and have developed a new set of 25mm fantasy battle rules. I am also working on rebasing my Empire, Orcs, Night Goblins, Lizardmen and Skaven forces too. I will post more on the rules in November.

Yours Truly....

Thought I would post some pictures of my granddaughter and I at the #ozarkcornmaze this year. Some of you frequently show yourselves in pictures at the club or show and since I have no show this year nor any club at all I will post these.

Combat Photography - 1.12 Navy Seal

I borrowed my wife's camera this afternoon and drove out to the lake for a quick set of toy soldier combat photography. The model is a McFarlane Military Series U.S. Navy Seal about 1/12 scale. I am very pleased with how well this little adventure turned out.

3D Printed Cobra HISS Tank 1/72 Scale

I am enjoying printing 1/72 scale models of GI Joe vehicles. I picked 1/72 because the plastic soldiers for that scale will be easier to convert and look the part then some other scales I first had in mind.

Custom Plastic Soldier: U.S. Navy Seal

I made this toy soldier back on August 1. I am very proud of him but I can see some areas to improve on in general. I used parts from three different plastic toy soldiers to make him.

GI Joe/Eagle Force & Cobra Command Logos

The GI Joe Cobra bug has bit again. So I printed and painted these up. They will adorn the army boxes for each force.

G.I. Joe Cobra Fang Helicopter

I've returned to collecting 1:18 scale toy soldiers, particularly Elite Force, GI Joe & The Corps. I have no gaming intention with them just "toy soldier still life" photography. Anyway I printed out a Cobra Fang attack helo but I made it too small for 1:18. I'll fix that later but for now this one may see use with traditional plastic Army Men.

The Fang looks perfect for the Galaxy guy or other
plastic Army Men.

Somewhere in Rhodesia....

Major Ian Butler, Rhodesian Light Infantry, on a patrol in the bush somewhere in Rhodesia.  This is an M.I GUTS. figure from the 80s that I found in a mystery bag at a local thrift shop.

54mm Napoleon & Imperial Guardsman

I casted the guardsman from Prince August molds over a decade ago. The Emperor I bought online.

3D Printed Warhammer 40,000 Thousand Sons Chaos Space Marine

I made this CSM to serve as a collectible and a kill team model.




3D Printed 2mm Blackpowder Infantry Block

This model was designed by Forward March Studios. It printed out very well. I've never even considered 2mm before as I thought 3mm was small enough but now that I can print my own miniatures, yeah, I'm in.

3D Printed Warhammer 40,000 Salamanders Space Marine

My pictures don't do this model justice. I am very proud of making and painting this figure. I want to make a shadow box display of a space marine for each chapter I like.

25mm Cave Lurker

I printed this model on my new printer. I like how it came out. I haven't decided whether to add it to an army, a warband or make it a creep.
