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.

Well its been a little while since I last posted. This was due to personal matters and family commitments. As a consequence I was unable to attend the Derby show which was a shame in that it looked a good show with some quality large games on show. I would have particularly like to have seen the Thirty Years War game, and the James Morris SYW one. Still perhaps next time.
Anyway I have managed to paint up some more ACW figures, this time the 1st Louisiana Zouaves, which was a very pretty unit. I have actually a full brigade of units from Louisiana but havent completed the bases on the other two units yet. I have realised that the units I seem to select are determined by the prettiness of their flags or their dress.
One will notice that this unit does not contain a full 24 figures, this is down to my cheapness, by sticking the odd piece of Rendra fencing on the bases just to add some randomness.I also padded out the unit with some Perry plastic zouaves, which look pretty good.
