    What is a Tie/In?

    If he does, will you be very put out?

    Need a D&D player or two...

    Few words more awesome than these have ever been spoken!
  3. Yes, I drilled out the base with a 1/4” drill bit and glued a 1/4” diameter x 1/8” thick magnet flush with the bottom of the base (this creates a shallow well/shaft for the rod to fit down into which helps hold it stable). Then glue a 1/4” x 1/8” thick magnet to the ship. Keeping things level is the hardest part. I haven’t tried using a steel ball, that could help. The well/shaft is pretty useful. I drilled too wide of a hole in one base and had to use a wider diameter magnet. It still works fine, the magnets are easily strong enough but the ship wobbled whenever I moved it. I bought the various magnets at KJ magnetics, no kits.
  4. I was frustrated with how crooked and wobbly large bases are and how often they fall off when you pick up the ships. I’ve been magnetizing mine with magnetic rods. The rods come in various lengths from thin discs up to 2 inches tall. I’m using 1”, 1.5” and 2” rods. The 2” rods are about the same as 2 pegs. They’re super stable. The trickiest part is making sure everything is level.

    Assault on Picutorion (Ep I)

    Ahh, that's too bad. To me, you're one of the greats. Hopefully you'll sneak an occasional peek and maybe come back at a later date when things settle down. Take care.

    2.0 HotAC work thread

    While I’m totally going to buy into V2 myself, my gaming group and I will stick with original HotAC (V1) probably well into 2019 and possibly “forever” depending on how everything pans out in the long run.
  8. Perfect timing. I’d use the list of contents of the conversion kits kinda like a buying guide and hit the aftermarket.
  9. Yeah, that's a huge undertaking. I have custom cards, markers, dials etc for 5 ships but only one custom damage deck for my Firefly. Which reminds me, I never did make one for my pocket Star Destroyer. So maybe 100 or so total. Wait! I forgot about my space station WIP. I wonder if that needs a damage deck too. No, I'll probably keep that as simple as possible but it'll still need at least a few title, crew and other upgrade cards. Hmmm, things are adding up quickly.
  10. If Strange Eons gets a V2 update, then I'll convert mine. For me that will mean several dozen cards but I'll enjoy doing it since I don't get to play as often as I would like and this will be a nice filler during dry spells.

    X-Wing 2nd edition announced

    Looking closely, I don't see any nubs on the ship bases. Are these a new design, maybe with recessed guides?
