This should be re-written a bit: Corey's the only one I know of who
ignores the clockface method of movement. I use it, and as far as I know
the rest of our group still does...

Keeping to clockface makes it easier to interpret other people's
orders - and it happens to correspond with weapon arcs, too.

Using sides & points of the hexbases works well, for the smaller GZG
- I still wish they all came packaged with the full metal clockface
but then I'd have a smaller fleet 'cause of cost...
