Hi!

I would like to upgrade my upcoming Eclipse miniatures with acrylic flight stands, but the ones Games Workshop sells are too big in my opinion.

I've found some alternative flight stands from [geekurl=http://www.litko.net/categories/Flight-Stands/]Litko[/geekurl], but not much more on the subject.
One further problem is that I don't know where to order Litko stuff in Germany, too.

Does anybody know of more cool and fitting flight stands that can be bought in rather large quantitites for not too much cash?

I will need at least 84 flight stands for all the miniatures Eclipse will ship with.

Thanks!

Antti's (see the Xeno Project thread) flight stands are from em4miniatures.

Try em4miniatures, that's where I bought mine from: http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/MINIAATURES_BASES.html

I suggest you buy some spares too, since the bases can be a bit fragile if dropped, for instance.

EDIT: Oh, I see Sampo already answered this...

Brilliant, and the bases are quite cheap, too.

Hopefully they ship to Germany, too...

Thanks, guys!

EDIT: Just ordered 8 bags of the acrylic flight stands for ~10 Pounds. Wow, what a cheap buy. 120 flight stands are inbound... yay!!!

You can buy tiny magnets (like the ones used for attaching the aircrafts to stands in Check Your 6!) to glue at the bases and ships so they can be easily removed and stored in the box.

(50 magnets for $10)

As a looooong time Warhammer 40K player I have lots and lots of Neodym magnets ready to use in my manyfold bitz boxes. That should not pose a problem.

Anyone knows how long it usually takes em4miniatures to send out orders?

I think they were fairly fast with my orders. I don't think it'll take them more than a week.

Brilliant - still too many weeks until Eclipse hits Essen 2011...

Sorry to necro this thread but I couldn't find an answer to my question.

Has anyone bought both the magnets and the stands? I couldn't find how many magnets I need for the 84 ships.

Do I need 100 magnets (1 magnet=1 ship part and 1 stand part) or 200 magnets (1 magnet = 1 part)?


Also, are the stands much bigger than the interceptors? Do you feel like the stands have just made a really big fight impossible on the hexes?

Thanks in advance!
