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.

Looking forward to Battleground 2021.
Another blog post, another group of units. These are an eclectic group. Some Irish light cavalry for my Wars of the Roses army. Nice figures provided by Antediluvian Miniatures that are very fine and fit with Perry figures nicely. They carry a Kildare banner and will add a small threat to his enemies I hope.
Next, my final Covenanter regiment. I now have a brigade of four regiments which will do I think. I do intend to add some cavalry and a gun or so. I now need to get my finger out and set up Marston Moor.
One will notice a large dog amongst the troops. I like to shove the odd animal into the ranks to add a little story to them.
Whilst at Partizan earlier this year I had a look at Eagle Miniatures small ECW range. Their photographs dont do them justice and when I saw them in the flesh I knew I had to have some. I would describe them as a similar size to my Hinchliffe units, but with better detail. Really quality figures. Before any ECW buffs start researching which regiment this is, its mine. I made the flag up and opted for a simple white uniform. No doubt they will rout a lot due to poor dice rolls but they will look good whilst doing so. The officer leading them is Empress Miniatures, Essex.
Tomorrow I will be attending the Battleground wargames show at Stockton. I am really looking forward to the day. Pendragon always do a good show AND its free to get in. Hopefully I will get some great photographs etc of the show.
As I type this I intend to put an additional post on my Renaissance blog, button at heading at top. This is regarding my new little project.
