Just finishing Lord S' Ligurian horde. All metal so will need a fork lift to get it into the hall. What idiot decided 36 bases of skirmishers would be a good idea?

Re: Drill and charge

Drilled is for true 90 degree turns and would normally not be necessary in a situation where charging was envisaged, it allows movement outside the usual arc and can be very useful-there are also other benefits of course.
