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.

I thought it would be nice to post smy newly painted Minden Miniature command groups. I wasnt too keen about 'doing' one of Frederick,but it was such a good likeness of him that I thought it would be churlish not to paint the figure as the king.
As I have previously recorded I'm not convinced about his role in history,and the tag of 'The Great', but the victor re writes history so who am I to argue with that. Still a very good model.
Viewres will see that I have discovered Minitur grass effects,which are top notch for personality figures.
These are my personal favourites,and I have painted them as Hanoverian commanders. I am currently basing up the Minden civilian sets,which I can throughly recommend,they would mahe great AWI rebels and are all open handed.I understand that they didnt sell very well,which is surprsing as they are suitable for all sorts of units,and scenarios.
