smear the mdf/card base with contact adhesive.

That statement reminds me of another Essex girl joke.

How does an Essex girl know if she has had a good night out? .........  The rest of this joke has been censored by Techno.  Shocked  Whatever happened to Free Speech?

Ah, the dreaded Essex bases!
My technique is:
smear the mdf/card base with contact adhesive.
smear the underside of the cavalry base with gel superglue, hold for a few seconds, then press firmly into place, and hold for a few seconds - the superglue causes the contact adhesive to set mmuch quicker. You'll still get the odd one that falls over a minute later, but it works 10 times out of 12.

With these new rules about the goalie's feet actually touching the line when penalties are taken, I'm having a hard time calculating how long a shootout might take.    The combination of time spent on VAR and the huge disadvantage the goalies are dealing with might make for a "cricket like" experience.

Then again, maybe the North Korean referee will just call it over at 6-5 even though every penalty has been scored up to that point.

You are welcome.  We read the rules last night and went, "What!"  Then played them as written.  Really cramped our style.

That is not the intention Terry

I will re-clarify, it is primarily to do with things like Rivers, Ravines and Impassable terrain, as previously they just swanned about with no limitations or restrictions, which seemed a bit odd.

Thanks Steve, yeah it's my second time with the rules and really enjoying them. Takes a lot of the complexity out of the rules and leaves it for the actual tactical maneuvering and strategic decisions, so flows a bit more smoothly.

My vote is for Black Powder.  We play some larger games in 6mm in 2-3 hours.  Itís a good set of rules that keeps you playing until you reach that point when enough of your commands are broken or shaken that you are forced to leave the field.  A number of the players here really like them.

Rules will depend on the scale of game you want to play and the detail or otherwise you want in the game.

Essex is a British wargame company that has been in business for almost forty years. They have very crisp figures, but in order to save weight/metal/money (?) they deliberately make their stands very small and, in the case of cavalry, very narrow, thus making them very difficult to glue to a base without them flopping to one side or the other before the glue has set.

A very fair summary.

Very crisp castings and a huge variety of figures, nations and periods.
But difficult to base.
I wonder whether I should break out my recently acquired hot glue gun to speed things along.

I based 18 of their little blighters this morning and had to do it in two sessions, with a Plasticine scaffold improvised for each one.
