We played a game with 8 ships total the other day, and decided to mix up the heights on the ships. One Y-Wing was 1 high, a few were 2 high, 2 were 3 high and one was 4 high. I liked it, it gave a greater impression of depth, plus the figures collided less. I'd like to do this more, but don't have enough pegs to really pull it off. Will FFG ever sell them separately? I'm also thinking some of these will break someday and would like some replacements.

I actually spoke to FFG about this the other day, as a retailer. They currently have no plans to (at least officially) but I made it a point to tell my rep to tell his boss to tell his boss that packs of pegs would sell quite well.

And yes, they break quite easily.

Yeah, that's what I'm worried about - breakage. But I suppose once I have 50 bajillion ships it won't matter so much.

I thought of that, but right now, I can field almost all of my ships, so if some break, that will suck...

Hopefully Litko or another company is listening...

A shame that the starters weren't packaged with a few extra by default. This way you could have the option of replacing or heightening pegs as needed.

It is much easier to the see info on the base with 2 pegs than 1.

Now those stupid pegs are like gold due to the cost of replacing them.

I'm sure MayDay games will jump in and start making pegs but theirs will suck even more than the originals.

I'd buy a few packs of pegs and bases as well.

Wouldn't it be cool if someone could come up with functional telescopic ones?

Too top heavy (until I figure out how to install weight at the bottom!)

Personally, when ever I play and demo, I always have 1 team on 1 peg and the opposite team on 2 pegs just to avoid models clipping. Give me a ton of extra pegs.

For use with my Nebulon B I cut pes in half and gave them 6 inch extensions (visible in my pics of the Neb- B) and they are fine.

Would also really like to be able to buy extra pegs...

Funny, I didn't read the rules at all, so I only put one peg per ship. I thought "wow, that's awesome that they provided 3 extra pegs in the base set in case I break one". Then I realized what they were for

I would buy a pack of extra pegs.

You can still play with just one peg on each ship.
That said, the game looks a lot nicer with two pegs per ship...

Corseceng have some telescope stands:

They cost an arm and a leg though, so I'd be very interested to hear of alternatives.
Preferably in Europe (EU).
