THE INDEPENDENT WARGAMES GROUP.
Being a Journal of views, prejudices,ideas and photographs of wargaming not just nationwide, but hopefully world wide.The name IWG was adopted in the early 1980's in response to the then dominant Wargames Research Group, but things have moved on,and wargaming appears to be in somewhat of a Golden Age, so sit back and hopefully enjoy my rantings.

Well, its been quite a productive week for me, in that Ive managed to complete one full regiment of my Hanoverian line,and the half regiment of Guard Horse Grenadiers,and I have also started my unit of Garde Foot grenadiers for my imaginary principality. This is a bit of a first in some ways,although when I was first starting wargaming,I did paint a lot of French napoleonic Airfix as a make believe country.I remember that they had red crossbelts? Why the deviation? Well I have now read so many blogs, plus Charles Grant over again,that I had to deviate a little. I had some spare! Russian RSM figures [can you have such a thing] that I decided to give it a go.
I must admit it has been quite liberating.
Things might get a bit tight time wise for my painting,as we finally break ground on Monday,to start building my home. I have tried to put the design of my wargames room to the back of my mind,well just until we have at least a shell. But I must admit it is a tad exciting, I just hope the builders have plenty of spare foamboard off cuts for my new terrain
