Wings of War Mounting Tutorial

Its really easy to use our new mounts with existing Wing Of War stands.



The process is simple. Take a standard WoW peg and glue it to the bottom part of the magnetic mount.


Now cut and sand down the pin from another peg and glue it to the upper part of the joint. Now you should have all the parts you need to incorporate our magnetic mounts into your next WoW game.



Now the rest is easy. Just plug in your pegs like normal and attach the top and your ready to plug any of your miniature into the new base that's capable of accurately depicting 3D movement. Also you can keep adding pegs to indicate elevation just like normal so your game play doesn't work any different it just looks a lot better.



Universal Magnetic Mounts are ready!

Ok got the production run of our new Universal Magnetic Mounts. They come in two sizes. The small ones are great for 1/144th scale planes and small to medium starships. Even metal ones. The larger work for some rather heavy stuff and work great with 1/72nd scale aircraft. Even bombers if ballanced correctly

Now you can add yaw,pitch, and roll to your next game. They might be a little tricky to mount to your current stands but nothing a little epoxy can't handle. We are designing our own flight stands so stay tuned for those.  They are sold in sets of 2.


Here is a short video to help show off our new mounts.

Magnetic Ship mounts are ready for production

Looks like I got everything ready new prototypes are looking amazing and will be available soon. Stay tuned for pics of the final ones in use soon. 


So you might be asking the important question How much they gonna cost? Well heres the run down


Small ship mount suitable for 144th scale airplanes and frigate to cruiser scale space ships 2 for $5.00

Large Ship Mount suitable for 72nd scale aircraft and larger battleship class stuff 2 for $8.00


Each unit comes with a magnetic sphere with mounting hardware attached and stand mount that has the option for glue or threaded attachment. Pictures coming soon. Oh and they look WAY better then the last prototypes I posted. Same top part but the bottom is a lot nicer not just a nut.



Magnetic Ship Mount final prototype

Finished the design of my ship/plane mounts to go with our flight stands. 



The stand is strong enough to hold a large metal ship and should work great for 1/72nd scale aircraft. The smaller varient is for frigates and cruisers. It will also work great for 1/144th scale aircraft. The base is 4" to give you a size comparison. 

Each unit will come with a telescoping stand and a minature attachment. Flight stands will be sold seprately. Currently we only offer 4" and 5" hex flight stands. Next project is a round base with a clock style marker for use with games such as full thrust and other games requiring bases like that. 

Some minor details to work out before we can go to full production of these units but they will be available soon. 


New Flight Stand Prototypes










Got some great news! I was asked to design a better stand for space games. So here is the prototype. Got some DFM (Design for Manufacturing) to do but the concept has been proven and I can move on with trying to make a production model.

What we have here is a magnet stand that will hold rather large ships and even small ones. The wedge allows for rotation up to a rather steep angle. This large a ship will not go the complete 90 without falling off but anything smaller would work. This is a full thrust carrier and is rather heavy. The main point of this stand is to be stable during play and removable easily for storage. The rotation is a benefit if needed.

Other varients may come out later if demand is there. These would be a stand capable of rotating on 2 axis instead of just the one and maybe a smaller set for frigates and fighters.

The production will have two diffent size bases. a 2 inch circle and a 4 inch circle. The ship shown is more suited for a 4 inch base. Also may release hex varients. I need to do more research to see what most ship based games use. Let me know what you would like to see. Bases will be laser cut and have an etched compass rose.

Stay tuned for more information and pricing as I get the design finalized.

As a side note other projects currently in the works are a 15mm (maybe scaled up to 28mm in the future) terrain system for dungeons and Scifi. It will be modular and cusomizable with 2d rooms for the basic stuff and doors (think space hulk) But an optional 3d component with walls and bridges and many other goodies.

Also some of my products will be available at Heat of Battle at the WWII museum in New Orleans this weekend. See Bobe's Hobby House for details.
