Litko Bases!

Litko was kind enough to create a customized 1" version of one of their bases for me that includes all six hexsides ("bearings") numbered and lined.

If you look at the images of our new miniatures, you'll see them (as well as the larger 1.25" bases they are based on). You can see a close-up of the 1" base in our photo gallery here: https://www.facebook.com/starfireboardg ... 3235631046

As a result, Litko has created a "Starfire" tag to make it easy to find the bases, and we have the option of suggestion more of their bases, custom pieces, etc. I'm going to go through their collection and make some suggestions, but if anyone has any suggestions on what could be useful, you can suggest it here and I'll put it on the list.

The peg looks a little big on top - does it fit "our" plug, which is 1mm radius (2mm diameter)?

Obviously, they have pegs:

Direction of Movement Indicators

For LEL ships, we have a need for "Direction of Movement" indicators. I've used these with the new bases, and they work very well.

Here are some ideas we may be able to incorporate:

Some possibilities for "flash markers" for flash detection of previously undetected ships.

A bit of a stretch, but was thinking could use these with the miniatures to indicate wrecks?

http://www.litko.net/products/Mini-Miss ... YBFCEZf2f4

Use as drone miniatures?

http://www.litko.net/products/Scanner-B ... YBFMkZf2f4

Could be used with the miniatures as "detect" markers

http://www.litko.net/products/Space-Min ... YBFcUZf2f4

Maybe buoy markers with the miniatures?

http://www.litko.net/products/Tractor-B ... YBFmUZf2f4

These might also be neat as a visual effect for tractor beams with the miniatures

Streaming air with the miniatures? Eh... probably not, but an interesting idea.

It does not. To use the basic flight peg that they offer, I've used my dremmel to make a smaller "peg" on top. However, I have not found a peg that does fit yet, so...

Edit: Now that I'm thinking about it, I should probably put up an image that shows what I did.
