Back to the ADLG (l'Art de la Guerre) Rules Board

With the purchase and painting of far too many Perry 25/8mm medieval figures having been successfully concluded in less than a year – racing ahead of many other odds and sods on my painting table in the process – the time came to let the rabbit see the carrot and head down to the glorious West of England to take part in a hastily arranged but still over-subscribed 25mm ADLG competition at Devizes Attack! 2016.
The Perry figures were duly packed into the box and the car, and soon the 6x4 table was graced with the first ever Madaxeman.com 25mm ADLG competition army – an "all the toys" Condottieri affair.
The results were a visual feast as the 60mm x 60mm multiple-rank basing format (or 60mm x 40mm for some stuff) of L'Art de la Guerre appeared to work really well in giving a sensible balance between having enough moving pieces on table (around 20-odd), with enough figure density (2-4 ranks for everyone) but still leaving space for a degree of maneuver which prevented the games descending into the sort of head-on table-edge-to-table-edge slow motion crash that has sometimes (often) bedevilled unit-based 25mm games in the past.
Glory at the eye candy, be mildly entertained by the usual crap captions and inane post-match analysis, and educate yourself with a host of rules hints, tips and explanations for the Most Popular Ancients Competition Ruleset In the World Right Now…. in full-on plastico-vision Big Toys widescreen !!

Always fun to read the Axeman.
Is the repeated hint in battle-1 intended?
