Although familiar with mechanics through playing X-Wing, I finally picked up the Attack Wing boxset a few months ago – better late than never!

I have a reasonable number of FASA/ADB starships that I want to use with the Attack Wing rules. As a result I have been buying cards separately from the model ships or downloading and printing out cards to use with my existing collection.

I've played a few games with my ships, but what I'm finding a pain is using a hex based ship with the Attack Wing base. Currently I've had to resort to adding a blob of Blu-tack to temporarily attach the hex base to the Attack Wing base. However, as the majority of my hex bases are clear, it looks unsightly using a big blob of blu tack.

Is anyone aware of an Attack style/sized base that would allow me to place a hex stand without it falling over?

Suspect the answer is no, but thought I'd check.

Have you seen these from Litko? Like the attack wing bases, but without the ridges on the sides.

Thanks @Gulik23. They look like they would do. Will check for a UK supplier.
