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 final Wars of the Roses units done.
So as we finally drag ourselves out of lockdown I thought I should complete and I mean that's it, my Wars of the Roses army. I picked up some decently priced old Citadel WOR figures which are still good quality figures and set to.
I 'needed' these extra figures because Pete of Pete's flags had released a new Yorkist set of standards that I had to buy. Most wargamers understand these two words, 'want' and 'need.' They are important words often used in the wargamers world, when in reality we dont really need them, its just we have to feed the addiction.
These chaps belong to the ward of John de Pole and are in my favourite livery colours.
So hopefully as the weeks progress we will finally end up playing regular wargames and attending wargame shows. I appreciate there is the fear of the consequences of the Indian variant, but looking on the brightside I'm expecting things to slowly relax back into something like normality.
