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.

I used to be quite adept at making my own terrain boards and the like, although I never mastered the art of dry brushing yellow? Dont ask me why. Anyway I decided to try my hand at making some compulsory snake fencing, which one needs for the ACW. These images are my first attempt at the fencing, and to be honest they seem okay. Having done some more research I think my fencing is a little sophisticated for the era, and should simply be laid flat roughly hewn lengths of timber with a rock base. I will see if I can make a fist of them later. Being of the age I hoped to buy some value [cheap] fencing but there seems to be a shortage, probably because it is a bit time consuming. I have bought a couple of Rendra fences just to see what they are like. Of course these aren't cheap, but look very nice.
