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.

Just to prove I havent thrown myself off a cliff I picked up a brush and finished off a few part painted figures. In the past Ive found that if one paints something a little different from what you normally paint it seems to help cleanse the palate. Hence the lovely Hinton Hunt figure kindly given to me by Iain Mcmillan.
The organ gun is a 3D one which I bought from E Bay. The company supplies four crew so I was able to use two figures for a couple of commanders albeit in later costume style than the times of the Burgundian Wars.
The cavalry are Perry plastics and have been sat in the queue for weeks now. I had trouble with the reds and have now resorted to Games Workshop ones. God knows what Vallejo are doing? I have only two more gendarme units to glue and paint and that should definitely do for the Burgundian army. I already have too many for a normal sized Billhooks game, but enough to host a decent sized Pike and Shot battle.
People should recognise the billman. He is available from Wargames Illustrated and is meant to be Andy Callan??? He is a very nice figure and will act as a Yorkist sub commander, not that I need anymore.
So I am still functioning and getting down to business, well at least lifting a paint brush. My next task is repainting some old Garrison and Lamming ancient Egyptians for my Persian horde.
