The Ninja Magic magnetic adapter had a tooth the prevented spin. There were also pieces to go between the base and the ship to produce pitches and rolls of 30, 45, 60, 90, and 180 degrees (obviously, you don't need a pitch beyond 90 degrees, since you just turn the stand around).

I've tried something like that, not sure if it is the same. The one I tried was often out of stock.

If you don't need a tilting ability there are sturdier solutions.
What I do is screw/glue a M3 male/female motherboard spacer into the base.
Next I glue the miniature atop a 3mm brass rod that's threaded (M3) on the downward side.
Then I screw a locking nut (M3) on the rod before screwing the rod into the motherboard spacer (base).
Align the miniature if needed, lock the nut, ready.
And the added benefit is that with the rod fixed to the miniature you can easily come up with all kinds of storage solutions.
