        Even that doesnt always help. Sure the thawks all come on at the start
of movement - this at least lets you know how many you have to deal with.phew:)
Unfortunately he gets to start them on different points of the back line
and only one moves at a time. Therefore while a FS has shots left there is only
ever (at most) 1 Thawk in range. I wont even go in to LOS problems here (ie
we set a hight for Thawks and actually figure out LOS rather than just assuming
anything - even something right behind a building - can see it or other flyers)
Its an expensive tactic but it allows at least one turn of free movement for
his marines - often enough to grab objectives / VPs to win the game.....
