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.

And Now for Something a Little bit Different.
I came away from Muster on the Parade Ground at Middlesbrough feeling that I should have a participation game for any future shows that I might want to stage a game at. So during my painting hiatus I decided to buy a few 1/32 plastic medieval figures and paint them up to see how effective they looked. Basically I wanted to put together a set of figures for a Lion Rampant game [ although Ive never actually played the rules]
Anyway I have finally based some of them up;
I must admit I have enjoyed painting them up. I do have quite a few more to paint so hopefully there will be enough to put together a decent sized game. The figures are in the main Airfix 1/32 foot figures, with some Italieri cavalry and knights. Both are no longer available, so cost more than I should have paid for them.
Dont ask me why I didn't use the Plastic Perry's, Warlord, Victrix etc, I always seem to make things a tad difficult, but the intention is for the figures to be used by young people, so bigger is better,
If I can stay focused then I hope to have enough to put on a game at the Shildon Show in November, but then best laid plans etc....
