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.

More SYW Saxons, etc.
The months of May and June have played havoc with my painting programme, and to be honest when the sun actually shines it can be difficult to sit at my painting table.Anyway I finally finished a few figures for my Saxon contingent. The infantry are from the Eureka 28mm range, which are expensive but are very good figures. Again I painted the figures in the pre 1756 uniform, with coloured trousers.
This Hinchlffe cuirassier unit are more figures from my secondhand store, which I have repainted as Saxons, still one of my favourite wargaming figures.
Finally a company of French Garde du Corps supplied by Graham at Crann Tara Miniatures, a lovely figure, with only another 18 to paint up.
