Buck reacts with his gut, but circumstances have left the Bradley commander in control.

The "Sagger Drill" is a tactic developed in response to the introduction of wire guided antitank missiles to the battlefield in the 70's. Those missiles had a hard time hitting a moving target, and by changing direction and speed you could dodge them. Most modern antitank missiles are "fire and forget", so the tactic is less effective. But the phrase "sagger drill" lives on in the minds of old-timers, meaning just to jink and dodge to avoid incoming fire.

You actually do a pretty good job with that photoshop poster effect; I never could get to work well enough for the art I do. I personally like using the cutout effect because it seems to give a more natural look...but, I guess we all have our own ways of doing things.

Thanks! I'm trying to make it look comic-booky... like it was printed on paper. I use Corel Painter 15, with a brush called impasto jitter which kind of flattens and smears colors.
