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.

Austrian Horse Grenadiers.
Well I managed to find time this week to paint this unit for Colin's re fight of the Battle of Reichenburg, as the Austrians fielded a unit of Horse Grenadiers in the encounter. I surprised myself on how quickly I put these together and painted them. I still think that Peter Gilders designs for the horses in his Foremost range take some beating. They were ahead of their time in general design and movement. There is always an issue in fielding a newly painted unit in a wargame, invariably they do badly and rout. Still they will look pretty as they flee the table.
