As you can see clearly in the photo, I have not yet painted the base. Once it's complete the flyer will get its own post. At this point I have no idea when, or if, I'll ever get to use it in a game. Keeping it on a table with my Revenants tells me I probably made the right choice in making the support rod 18". With the slide into the model and the curve of the wings the bottom point of the wings only clears about 14". It should clear most terrain one would find on a table.
