The first game involved He111s from the 1st Air Div hitting some Soviet defensive positions while evading the Yak9s from the 347th Fighter Regt.
Fortunately for the bombers some Me110Gs zestorers from ZG1 are also in the area to run interference.
The final tally in this opening game was 2) bombers down and 1 damaged (20 pts for Soviets). 2 Yaks down and 1 damaged and only 3 bombers hit their targets (15 pts for the Germans) Using Heinkels to go after ground positions at lower levels is just not cost effective.
If you are in the Atlanta area in August and are free Tuesday evening come and join us at Giga Bites Café in Marietta.

What rules are you using?

Are you using altitude at all?

Are the additional washers on the bases just for weight?

How did you attach the "antennas" to the stands?

CY6 also has bases and stands with altitude and speed dials if you prefer. Many people like the telescoping do-dads. There are usually 6 tactical altitude levels in CY6 in different Altitude bands. Different altitude bands can be represented on different cloths. Useful for Pacific Dive Bombers and Torpedo Planes in the same mission -Kind of like 3D chess.

I use magnetic pickups for the telescoping stands. Unhinge the pocket clip and put that end on the furniture caster. Then screw the pickup onto the caster.
Both items can be found in online stores
