lol, anyway I like the hoverbase, as I can stick FWs under teh engines to hide. It's good to get extra space for the FoF attack on DFs too. But it's being really sneaky.

I haven't glued in the landing gear yet (so that I can fit more in the box I store my tanks in) - so when it comes to game time, I find it's a lot easier to get a flying stand out rather than 3 bits of landing gear that tend to detach themselves mid-game.

Personally, I like landed. Since it is the base that counts as where people are allowed to land, they can easily assault me if I use FoF. Therefore, I keep it landed so they have to around the tank to assault me.

Actually, it's the model, not the base. It doesn't matter if you're landed or not, they can not come within 1" of any model they are not assaulting, and so cannot assault you while doing a FoF regardless as to if your HH is on a flying base or not.

Mine are flying always until shot down. I show them as shot down by removing the flying base.

Also, Mace, I cut the legs off the landing pads and glued the pads directly over the holes for the gear. It gives the appearance of "gear up" or retracted.

Landed DF's and HH's block LoS, which isn't always a bad thing. It isn't always a good thing, either. And can anyone clear up the rule on landing and moving for me? I didn't find it in the FAQ.
