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 decided to have a quick review of the Young Garde contingent I am painting for the Great Game in Glasgow next June.I feel I am making some progress and I am finally getting into the swing of things.
To relieve the monotony of painting blue figures I painted up my brigadier base of General Duhesme. In real life he was wounded and died on the battlefield at Waterloo apparently finally expiring in Blucher's command tent.From my research he was clearly a very brave die hard republican notorious for his pillaging. Still the Emperor gave him command of the Tirrailleurs of the Garde so he must have had some redeeming features. Given my record with generals no doubt he will die again next year.
Eventually each battalion with have a company of skirmishers. All the units will have movement trays and their respective causality marker.
