So one of the guys in my local gaming club has a company that dose custom laser cutting and we have been convincing him to make custom cut templates for the various games we play. Recently we got him to cut us some plastic X-wing templates and I am really happy with them as they wont bend and wear down like the ones that come in the box set. If you guys are interested I suggest checking him out http://www.appliedpe...ve.com/acrylic/

Is it just a camera trick or are the 45 degree banks wider than the turns and straights? They look friggin' dope. Take the X-wing off the range ruler if they're to be sold, though. :)

Yeah the X-wing on there was a custom thing he did just for me because I'm a friend, he isn't going to sell it with them. Also any thye are exactly the same size as and thickness as the ones in the core set any thing looks off its becauser my camera sucks and the photo was at an angle.

Get him to put them up on the website, and I'd seriously consider it. (c:

I can think of three or four sets that could be considered sold at my venue.

The "pew pew" on the range ruler is a nice touch.

It should be 45 for the bank and 90 for the turn.

Pass on this message:

I MAY buy a set of range rulers, but i'd DEFINITELY buy a plastic manouver dial for each of my ships.

Hey, if they get posted for sale on the website I'm sure to pickup a set. They'll allow me to play for fun and save the originals for tournaments.


  • Rebels: 5 X-wing, 3 Y-wing, 3 A-wing, 3 B-wing, 2 Hawk 290 and  a YT-1300
  • Imperial: 9 Tie fighters, 3 Advanced, 3 Interceoters, 2 Bombers, a Shuttle and Firspray 31

There is no reason you couldnt use these for tournaments they are the exact same size.
