But today, I'm looking higher. Should I be making terrain high enough to hide a squadron of Vendetta? The question really is, are we trying to create high flying aerial dogfights or strafing runs through the streets of Los Angeles. I already own and have building of 9 inches or higher. But as a tournament organiser or group host, are you obligated to provide a hiding place for a Storm Raven. I don't think so. It would be nice for 1 or 2 that might obscure, but for the ground part of the game to flow you can't have a table full of spires and multiple story ruins. Squads would be climbing out of one building into the third story of another. There are just not enough turns in a game for that.
But, for all the jets and drop ships in the 41st millenium, I am really surprised that the only warrriors to not employ aerial combat are also the dogs afraid to teleport, too. I hope the best for them.

That got me thinking of the direction of my painting that has been less than what I want it to be. When I first decided to start a blog, I was setting a 2 week painting goal. 1 squad and 1 vehicle painted start to finish in 2 weeks. This is the perfect goal for me at that time. Well, since my 2 year old decided that he doesn't need to sleep anymore. My painting has dropped off, but the blog has picked up. Despite that, I am going to restart my efforts and I want to concentrate on my Dark Angels collection. I call it a collection more than just an army due to my level of involvement.
|Ancient warrior or new addition?|
I decided to go for a long term goal for my painting. This week I will be posting my list on the The Independent Characters podcast forum. This will include the remainder of my Dark Angels battle company. Included in this list will be 2 Tactical squads, Devastator squad, and veterans for the chapter. I am going to add only 2 characters, just to keep with the force organization chart. And for theme, and the fact I should really paint it, the Fortress of Redemption.
This will be giving me a long term goal of November. Which should work well for me as long as my boy decides to start sleeping again. 1850 points should be attainable. Of course, I will be putting updates here as well. Talk to you next week.

Alright, I am back this week for an update on our city fighting terrain project. We have 5 buildings structurally assembled and based. The final vision is to cover a complete 4 foot by 6 foot table with a tile system. Every tile will have some kind of feature on it. From buildings to a park piece, and the roads to finish the table off, we should have everything we will need for a believable cityscape in the grim future. The geography of this near desolate city has been bombarded by years of warfare and strife.
Also,on a side note, I painted my Aegis Defense Line. But, I neglected to take a picture. I guess I have content for next week. Talk to you all then.
