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.

The Georgia Cavalry.
Well my ACW project moves on a pace, obviously the distraction of the oncoming Christmas has slowed things down a bit, but I have managed to keep pegging away painting up some figures. I enjoyed painting up some Perry metal Rebel cavalry although they do have an annoying amount of small pieces of flash everywhere.The chaps are the Georgia cavalry, obviously not all of them.
Next are a well dressed, Missouri State Guard, that really should have been a more ragtag unit, but they were easier to paint as they are..
Finally a few skirmish Union troops. They were going to be a part of a Union regiment, but they look better as simple skirmishers. The other half should be completed very soon. I am also two thirds of the way through a Irish Union regiment, although I have started undercoating a unit of War of Religion Gendarmes, which will be a distraction. Talk about a butterfly mentality.
