1" Acrylic Rod Flight Stands 10 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
Hi everyone,

When I was building my LED light box (link), I acquired a few polished acrylic rods and it gave me a good idea. Why not use them as flight stands to put RPG fantasy miniatures on them? They look good, they're sturdy and they have a flat top on which you can easily put a medium sized 25-28 mm figure. Most flight stands available on the market are designed to put planes/helicopters/space ships on them. Worst, they end up with a pin upon which you have to permanently pin your flying vehicle. Anyway, I know I'll use mine a lot in gaming sessions, especially with the 2 fearful low armor class wizards/sorcerers that start levitating/flying at the beginning of most encounters.

A standard adventuring party (2 fighters at the front, cleric and rogue on each side, a bard in the middle, wizard and sorcerer at the back):



A group of hungry mean wolves suddenly shows up:



The wizard and sorcerer respectively start levitating and flying (poor bard should have picked his spells more wisely)!

If anyone is interested in having some for himself, I have a few for sale. I had to buy a 6 foot long acrylic rod and this means that I have too many! If there is good demand, I might make more!

The 1" wide acrylic rods I have are 2" & 4" long and I polished both ends with a special torch after cutting them. I ask for $3 for the small (2 inches) ones and $6 (4 inches) for the long ones. I'll do a special for a pack of 4 (2 smalls & 2 longs) for $16. Shipping to the US from Canada should be around $8. Contact me if interested: thi87err65ybe43rto21meu@gmail.com(remove numbers). I'll also ship worldwide but charge precisely what Canada Post charges me.

Great Idea. I remember seeing an ad in Dragon magazine years ago for this but it seemed very pricey but im sure this is a much more economical solution:) I love all these cool ideas you guys come up with makes being a DM so much easier. So glad I saw the KS and rediscovered this great site.

Great part with these is you don't have to cut them, use a hydrogen / oxygen torch to polish them or buy 6-8' long rods .... Good Job Bio.

The other great thing is most parties would probably not need more than 4 of theses. Might be different if you ran into a dungeon encounter with flying creatures.... maybe 3 packs of 4.

Got to love it.

I can imagine having flying invisible ninjas causing havoc on a party.

Another wonderful project. If you are still making these available down the road I think I will order a few from you. Thanks again for sharing!

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

Hi Biowizard! - I just sent you email (and paypal payment) for a set of flight stands (and gelatinous cubes!).

This is actually my first post here - I've been lurking here for a little over a year, looking at the great gaming photos people post, but time to decloak, I guess :-) . [I own about a dozen sets, and was in for the DF Kickstarter - and the Reaper one. Am hoping to run a game with all the new gaming gear I've acquired... but parenthood makes it tricky].

Anyway, hi everyone!
