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.

Back in the Groove.
Well after a bit of a setback over the weekend I am back in the painting groove with another regiment of Union troops and a command base for a regiment of Union in skirmish order.Having now realised that one doesnt need specific skirmish figures apart from specialised troops in Picketts Charge I have created another unit.
In the background of this image is a maize field based by John.I really like the effect. The pieces were obtained from a model railway company.
I have also painted up some Reform bases and started on some Rout bases, just to make the whole game look pretty.I have also finally finished painting my 79th New York Volunteers, those of tartan fame. I had to have the unit simply because it was a ridiculous idea to clothe a unit as such. I found them a pain to paint, and frankly didnt like the actual figure, but they are done now.
