    Box Mini Stiffeners (Legacy)

    This is a set of box miniature stiffeners, cut out of mat board. When you assemble them, put a 1/8" ball bearing inside them and glue them together, then fold your box miniature around them. They make box minis a little denser, and they rest more easily on the tilt blocks. With the ball bearing trick, they hold box minis quite securely.

    This set matches the mix of box miniatures used for Birds of Prey and the Squadron Strike boxed set, with 3 Large, 7 Medium and 2 Small box miniatures.

    You will need one of these for each countersheet you want to reinforce, so increment in multiples of $10. Once you add more than 6 of them, please increment in multiples of $12 to cover the additional shipping.

    Box Mini Stiffeners (New)

    This is a set of box miniature stiffeners, cut out of mat board. When you assemble them, put a 1/8" ball bearing inside them and glue them together, then fold your box miniature around them. They make box minis a little denser, and they rest more easily on the tilt blocks. With the ball bearing trick, they hold box minis quite securely.

    This set matches the mix of box miniatures used for Attack Vector: Tactical as of 2014, Airborne Alert and Fighter Sweep. If you have an older printing of Attack Vector, use the Legacy box mini stiffener set. This set has 2 Large, 5 Medium and 5 Small box miniatures.

    You will need one of these for each countersheet you want to reinforce, so increment in multiples of $10. Once you add more than 6 of them, please increment in multiples of $12 to cover the additional shipping.

    Single Challenge Coin:

The first challenge coins will have the blue AVID on one side, and the Ad Astra logo in black and silver on the other, with the motto "Ad Astra, Per Ardua" around the rim.

    Check back for updates. Challenge coins are very popular; I want to do one for crew members of the ill fated ODFSA Warspite, replacing the AVID with a 3/4 prow on view of the Warspite. If enough challenge coins are chosen as backer rewards, I'll do more of them from the Ten Worlds universe.
