Also practical. The maneuver template, critical for wheeling was going to be a tad unwieldy (which it is at the best of times). I've always used it, but, as it's an optional rule I thought the basic wheeling rule would be fine. As I found out yesterday, it's not. It allows units to wheel at super speed, something that was sure to cause cries of anguish etc etc.

|Positioned marked and measured. As close to three inches as fiddly possible|
