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.

Wild Geese, done!
Well I've completed my Wild Geese Brigade, and I am glad to see the back of red uniforms. To be fair the figures were a real pleasure to paint, but red can be a probmatical colour, well at least for me.
Ive added a couple of Irish Brigadiers to complete the units, and now look forward? to Crann Tara releasing the Fitzjames Horse so I can complete the Irish contingents.I didnt photograph my fifth Irish regiment,because being Willie figures they are so very different from most of the other units.
Anyway, there they are, I now just have to decide what attributes to endow on them from the Blackpowder book. You have to give the units some special qualitity otherwise they just wouldnt be the Irish.
I also completed another unit of French cavalry, to bolster the cavalry units. RSM figures are a pleasure to paint,and I find I can knock them off pretty quickly given some spare time. Oh to finally retire, whilst still fit enough to paint.
