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.

Warning, burbling clown is interviewed on respected podcast.
I failed to mention in my last post that I had taken part?? in a podcast courtesy of Yarkshire Games. Id very kindly been put forward by Colin Ashton as someone who might provide something interesting to say about wargaming. Im afraid poor Ken lost three hours of his life he will never get back. I was very impressed by the professional way Ken conducted the whole event and I never thought I would need to use my old media training. Needless to say I talked the legs of a donkey but hopefully Ken can edit the whole thing into something of interest. Its on you-tube I believe, just search Yarkshire Games.
I completed a right mix of figures these last few days in between putting part of my garden to bed for the Winter. First the Carnegie regiment of Scots.
I bought a few unpainted Macedonian cavalry from E Bay, I think they were Agema but dont quote me on that. They are very crisp sculpts and easy to paint.These will be added to my slowly building Successors which I hope to finish before I reach complete gagaism.
Ah yes, some more Kern. I didnt need them as I have enough but for completeness sake I painted a few foot archers. Not my best effort but acceptable I suppose.Skirmish archers in Billhooks arent very effective but being Kern they can melee if needed so are always handy.
Finally another unit of gallowglass. These are a mixture of Antediluvian Miniatures and Perry. They are compatible size wise. The Antediluvian figures are based on a Durer sketch from that time and are lovely figures, definitely recommended. The sculptor really made an accurate copy of the sketch with these figures, truly remarkable.
