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.

Some SYW Hinchliffe goodies.
I would love to take credit for these lovely painted figures but apart from the mounted officers they were obtained ready painted from Ian Hinds. However actually painted these Hinchliffe SYW Austrians truly deserves some credit because they are quality painted figures.
I added a couple of Pete's Flags to the units and look forward to using them soon.
Similarly I cannot claim credit for these beautiful SYW mounted dragons that are probably meant to be Saxon chevau legers. Well thats what I will be using them as. I particularly loved the use of pins to replace their swords a la Peter Gilder.
I also purchased some badly painted Garrison SYW artillary which I repainted/ touched up to make several French battalion guns and one heavy piece. Its not that I really needed anymore guns but as I regress wargames wise I felt the need to have some Garrison figures in my armies. Its not the sum total of my painting efforts come the New Year but its the only finished figures to speak of.
I have been a bit busy with other matters but have managed to begin the re jigging of my wargames room with the intention of creating more space and less weight on the joists. I think it would probably be easier to simply start a diet.
