New blog post:

In September last year I finally tracked down a copy of the ADLG rulebook. I even managed to get in a practice game and began looking closely at the rules.

Since then not a lot has happened. However I've just found out that there will be a ADLG competition in this year's Northern League. I don't have any details yet but there's a distinct possibility of me going to at least two of the rounds this year.

As my thoughts turned to entering competitions (with a set of rules that I've hardly played) it occurred to me that my rulebook was going to get quite a bit of use. Sadly the rulebook isn't ideal in these circumstances.

I have done the same thing with my copies of Impetus, and the follow on books. Planning on also having my copies of Volley & Bayonet spiral bound, along with their follow on books as well. I am actually surprised that more rules don't come this way, as it makes reading them, as well as referencing them during the game, so much easier.

Great idea.

TKindred -My copy of Impetus was spiral bound from the start, straight from Lorenzo as published. How was yours bound? A download perhaps?

Never saw the need for the army lists to be spiral bound- I don't need them to stay flat during a game. Although if I had split a book as Martin did I would have all the bits rebound in this fashion.

My copy of Impetus came without the spiral binding. It wasn't a download, but one I purchased off of ebay. Maybe it was an early edition?

Don't know.
You did the right thing though – make life a lot simpler.

Nice idea, cheers.

Went to my local printers and had my copy split and ring-bound today. A great idea.
