Product Update: New Omni-Stand Releases

We continue to adapt and expand the Omni-Stand line. We have added a few new items to the store and made some changes to others.

We have struggled with our telescoping rod supplier for years now. We are very happy to have replaced them. What does this mean for you? Well better telescoping rods!

All the telescoping rods have been rolled into one item in the store and some changes have been made to the regular rods. They now have 7 segments and telescope from 5" to 25". We have had lots of requests for rods with more segments and are very happy with these new rods.  We are also adding two new types of rods.

Telescoping with Gimbal (Flat) - $3.99

Telescoping with Gimbal (Screw) -$4.99

The Gimbol rods have a mechanical joint that is stronger then the ball magnet and allow you to get the cinematic positioning benefits for larger and heavier aircraft. The screw type gives a solid mechanical connection that will hold up just about anything. Even die cast aircraft.

We also have a few new base options. First up is the Etched Round Bases. These bases have 30 degree firing arcs etched onto them. They should work great for Full Thrust and other games that use clock face movement.

Prices:

30mm Etch Round Base - $1.39

40mm Etch Round Base - $1.64

50mm Etch Round Base - $1.69

60mm Etch Round Base - $1.74

We have also added some new options for oval bases. The small ovals are designed for long thin models like jet bikes and the large oval bases are perfect for larger flying models.

Small Oval (75mm by 25mm) - $1.39

Medium Oval (100mm by 60mm) - $1.99

Large Oval (120mm by 90mm) - $3.99

Product Update: Fabric Mats now available in 80" by 60"

Well it's been a bit of a long road. Longer then we'd like but we can now offer the Fabric mats in 80" by 60"! All of our patterns will be available in the new size and we will begin testing new patterns so we can expand the line to include even more great images.

US Shipping will be $8.00.

Unfortuently, we where not able to get International shipping down so it will remain $39.95.  We will continue to work on lowering the cost but at this point it doesn't look like we will be able to.

80" by 60" mats - $79.99

60" by 50" mats - $69.99

We incorperate the overlays into the printed images so they are uniform and will not fade over time. This pic shows you what the Blue Nebula pattern looks like with the overlay.

New Products: 28mm Modern Laser cut Terrain kits

We are continuing to develop new and innovative ways to combine styrene and MDF to make some great look and easy to put together kits. The new set should be just the thing for those of you who like you zombie games or even modern military games in 28mm.

28mm Shopping Mall:

This set of buildings is designed to work together to make the staple of modern city terrain, The Shopping Mall! The standard and extended roof buildings are designed to stagger alternatively. Two extended roofs cannot be placed next to each other. The corner building works with either style to give you an inward 90 degree turn. Great for making L-Shaped or U-Shaped Malls. These stores can also be used as stand along small stores.

Prices: Standard Store - $16.99

           Extended Roof Store - $17.99

           Corner Store - $24.99

28mm Convenience Store

Where better to survive the Zombie apocalypse then a corner convenience store! Lots of food and supplies. Plenty of gas to make cocktails.

Price: $29.99

28mm Gas Station Island

Need to add a little something to your convenience store? Why not a pump island. This island comes with 4 pumps in 2 rows and should make a great addition to any table.

Price: $24.99

28mm Fast Food Restaurant

Another great hide out for the end of the world! This MASSIVE building is the largest we have made to date. It was so big we decided to include an etched floor plan inside. Better check the bathrooms before you settle in... The slopped roof is design to be easily removed for access to the interior. It is 400mm by 280mm by 110mm! A great center piece for your next game.

Price: $59.99

Assembly videos are in the works and will be posted soon. Links will be provided in the product descriptions as they are uploaded.

New Product: Magnet Applicator Tool

We have a new tool that should help tame those pesky magnets. This device allows you to put a magnet precisely where you want it without getting glue everywhere or messing with tweezers.

Simply press the plunger to reveal the steel rod inside. Pickup the magnet and move it into place. Once you release the plunger the steel rod retracts into the brass casing and lets go of the magnet. You don't even have to wait for the glue to try! Great for epoxy users.

The tool is designed to work with large and small magnets. All the way down to 1/8"! You can use if for even smaller magnets but you'll have to wait for the glue to dry or else they will be retracted into the tool with the steel rod.

Magnet Applicator Tool

Price: $7.99

We also have a video of the tool in action.

Introducing Fabric Mat 2.0

Back in December, we made the choice to shutdown our normal Fabric mat production. This was due mainly to increasing printing costs and lowering quality. So we set out on a mission to find a better and cheaper method of production. The result is Fabric Mat 2.0.

The new mats feature a thicker material. They are made from thick fleece which is comparable to felt without all the pesky fraying. They also lack the gloss look that most vinyl mats have. The synthetic fibers take inks a lot better then the heavy cotton.  The result is absolutely stunning. Rich vivid colors and deep blacks gives our old patterns new life and opens the door for even more patterns to be developed in the future.  Here is a side by side of the two versions.

The new version is machine washable. This was not possible with the old one because they ran the risk of fading. Now you can't be tossing these in the wash with your next load of laundry but they can be cleaned if something tragic happens like a spilled drink.

You'd think that all these great features would come at a cost. However, we are excited to be able to offer these mats at a much lower price then our previous version. 60" by 50" mats will run $69.99. However, this price doesn't come without some restrictions. In order to keep the cost low, we have decided to have the printer ship directly to our customers. This puts a few restrictions on us. The mats can no longer be mixed with general orders from our store. We converted them to buy it now buttons.

To celebrate the return of our Fabric Mats, we have decided to offer free shipping to all our US based customers. Unfortunately, Our international customers will see an increase in shipping costs. Currently we are forced to use UPS for shipping and that will cost $39.95 for all international orders.

We are working on a major store upgrade and integrating our system with the new printers. This will allow us to reduce the international shipping cost and release new sizes. We have plans for 80" x 60" and 40" by 30". This will take some time so we decided to move forward with the 60" by 50" mats.

Feel free to email us if you have any questions or issues with the new buttons!

New Laser Cut Buildings. Now with curves!

We are still experimenting and stretching the boundaries of laser cut terrain. We have several new buildings to offer. The styrene allows us to add curves and create more interesting shapes.

First up is some 15mm scifi dwellings. These represent small buildings or frontier colony homes.

Medium Habitat (104mm x 104mm x 33mm)

Price: $14.99

Small Habitat (130mm x 60mm x 33mm)

Price: $11.99

We also have a new skyscraper for those of you playing 10mm games like Dropzone Commander and Heavy Gear.

10mm Half Moon Tower (120mm x 63mm x 300mm)

Price: $24.99

We have also expanded the scales available for the Quonset huts. It is now available in 10mm, 15mm, and 28mm.

Quonset Hut Kits

Price: 10mm - $5.99

          15mm - $7.99

          28mm - $11.99

New Products: X-wing Compatible Large and Shuttle Bases

We have added some new base options for the X-wing players. We got our hands on the large ships for Wave 2 and we now have a compatible base for the Millennium Falcon and Slave I. These also work great for anyone who is building their own custom ships. We also had several requests for a shuttle base. We have made a new base that is compatible with the token from the base set.

We have also added new color options for the templates. The Movement, Firing, and Range templates are now available in fluorescent green and transparent red.

Prices:

Large Starfighter Base - $3.99

Shuttle Base - $1.99

New Product: 15mm Quonset Hut

We have been working hard on researching a new method to make affordable terrain with a laser cutter. We have combined the flexibility and paintibility of styrene with the rigidity and ease of assemble of MDF. This allows us to create buildings that where impossible with MDF alone. We have a lot of new designs in the works.

The first in this series is a 15mm Quonset Hut. These buildings where an essential part of any WWII allied base and would make a great addition to any Flames of War table. The kit comes unassembled and unpainted.

Price: $7.99

We tossed together a quick assembly tutorial.Check out the video here.

 

New Products:Flat Pack Terrain

We all could use some more terrain in our lives. You can easily find great shapes in every day objects. Boxes, product packaging, and bottles make great bases for buildings but it can be difficult to convert them into great looking terrain pieces. Enter Flat-Pack Terrain sets. These laser cut styrene details glue onto almost any shape. The styrene is thin (0.020") and can bend to cover slight curves. They are thin enough that you don't have that unnatural glued on door look. With some work, they can even be blended into the structure for a more realistic look of inset doors. The styrene holds paint better then mdf and they take washes and dry brushing great.

We currently have 3 sets of door, windows, and vents available. We also have three styles of vehicle sized doors. They are available in 28mm and 15mm. The vehicle doors work great in different scales as well. The 15mm versions make nice wide doors in 28mm and the 28mm ones are large enough to work as massive hanger doors for 15mm.

Each set contains several pieces help together by a sprue frame that is easy to remove and clean. Prices range from $1.99- $3.99 for 15mm and $3.99 to $4.99 for 28mm.

Here are a few samples. Check out the rest here.

Omni-Stand Updates

We have added several new options to the Omni-Stand system.

We have also added a new type of topper for the system. These can be used as bases or screw into the top of any rod to hold several medium miniatures on one stand. These are similar to the fighter topper but a lot bigger to hold your swarms of miniatures.

 

Omni-Stand Creature Topper @ $0.89

Finally we have added some organically shaped bases to the line. These are great for asteroids of cloud affects. They come as a set or can be purchased individually.

We have added several products to support the new X-wing game by Fantasy Flight Games.

Telescoping Rods back in Stock and a Sale!

We have the telescoping rods back in stock! We didn't have them in stock for the last sale so we decided to have another one this weekend. Friday through Monday we will be offering 15% off everything in the store. This is not cumulative with the volume discounts.

We have also updated the store and added some more items. We will now be offering the option for black for most of the Omni-Stand bases. We have also reorganized the store a bit. We expanded the sizes we offer for round bases and combined them into one single item.

We have also started offering the Steampunk Template items in both blue and clear acrylic. These are great for those of you who play Dystopian War.

We just received our new laser cutter. We have been outsourcing till now. Having the cutter in house will give us a lot more flexibility to release new products faster and expand our line to include items that would normally not generate enough interest to stock on a regular basis.

We are also experimenting with a few new ideas. We will soon be offering a new service to our Omni-Ruler customers. We now have the capacity to etch custom messages onto the ruler sections and end caps. This will add a new level of personalization and utility to the Omni-Rulers. You can label them by size or add sections to identify specific ranges.

The next few months are going to see a lot of changes and big pile of new products. Drop us an email if there is something you'd like to see us produce.

New Omni-Stand Releases

We have been hard at work getting more bases ready for the Omni-Stand system.

They keep piling up so we are releasing all of them at one time!

We have moved some stuff around on the Omni-Stand store page.

We have condensed the square bases into two categories. Etched and regular.

We added some more sizes to the regular bases in anticipation of the release of Dropzone Commander.

Omni-Stand Birthday Sale!

July 15th 2011 was the first release of the Omni-Stand system. Today, Omni-Stand turns 1 year old. So what better way to celebrate then to have a sale! We will be offering 15% off of everything in the store from Monday (7/16) till Friday (7/20).

We have some new videos as well.

For those who are interested we put together a few pictures of the early prototypes and how we eventually got to the Omni-Stand we sell today.

The early versions were more concept then actual flight stands. This one was interesting.

Remember these guys? These magnetic mounts were predecessor to the current system.

We soon had a working prototype.

Several revisions proved that acrylic didn't like to have threads tapped into it. This lead us to the brass inserts we use now.

We are still working on improving the system and have not forgotten about the flexible and clear rods. Supply and production issues have slowed those down but we are working on fixing those and improving the system.

So Happy Birthday Omni-Stand!

 

New Product: Omni-Stand 2.5" Hex Base

We have added a new size of hex base to the Omni-Stand line. These 2.5" hexes should work great for Angels 20!

The plastic planes that come in the Angel's 20 packs are very easy to convert to the Omni-Stand system. The small mounts fit perfectly in the hole the original flight stand needs. Add a bit of super glue to hold it in.

We have also organized all the hex bases under one entry in the store with options for the different sizes. This should make it easier to find the items you need.

Price: $1.69 each (Volume Discounts Available)

New Product: Omni-Stand Aerial Support Base

The Omni-Stand Aerial Support Base allows you to use a single base to represent airplane support. It has an integrated DiceDock that holds the 14mm airplane dice used in Flames of War*.

Increase the cinematic feel by adding an Omni-Stand Sphere Magnet Add-on or Telescoping Rod with Sphere Magnet.

As with all the Omni-Stand products, you only need to purchase as many bases and rods as you'd need for a game and then mounts for all your airplanes.

Omni-Stand Aerial Support Base

Price: $1.14 each (Volume Discount Available)

Omni-Ruler Retail Display Pre-Orders

We have been working towards the goal of making the Omni-Ruler line available to retailers. We decided against packs because it limits the choices that gamers can make. So we have opted to go with a retail display capable of holding all 12 colors in sections and end caps.

The box will have a double sided label in the lid.

New Product: Omni-Stand Telescoping Rods with Screw attachment

We have added another type of Telescoping Rod to the Omni-stand line. The head on this setup is a screw that is compatible with any of the Omni-Stand Mounts. These rods provide a secure connection that allows you to get larger kits off the ground without worrying about the magnets letting go. It works great with 1/72nd scale fighter kits!

Omni-Stand Telescoping Rod (Screw)

Price: $4.49 (Volume Discount Available)
