Hi Peter!

A pal and I finished our 5000pt 3 game "Gudge Match" competition today,
between the Dread Wolves (Space Wolves) and the Ultra Marines. Won one
game apiece, and finished with a "Meatgrinder" tie, WOW!

Anyway, we tried out the new proposed flyer and titan revisions today.
Both seemed to work well, and add to the enjoyment of the game.

A couple of questions though:

1) When do Ground Attack flyers fire thier weapons, just after they
move, or in the Advance Phase?

2) With the new flyer rules, when will Drop Pods land? We had them land
before movement, then the troops Advanced out during the Movement Phase.
This seemed to work very nicely.

3) At what height does flying take place? Can flyers weave around
buildings and tall hills? Can they use them to block line of sight to

And a couple observation:

1) Thunderhawks are no longer able to streak all the way across the
table to threaten under-defended objectives. This is "Good Thing", but
it takes a little getting used to. And also possibly exposes them to AA
for a couple of turns.

2) There is no minimum move for flyers, so they could just stay in one
spot, if desired. Neither one of us needed to use this option, however.

Again, great work on the new proposed rules!
