Template bridge for ship movement (X-Wing Fantasy Flight unofficial)

Unfortunately for me, the cut out for the movement template is too loose.

Now you can download the taller one :)
May the force be with you!

Ahhh wish it was tall enough for ships using two standing pegs.

I love the idea, but it's just too low for most of the ships, especially since we like to keep the height variable so the battle is more visually interesting.

The other thing about this bridge is the base. The base in front of the TIE is ok, but the larger foot in front of the base of the x-wing would make it difficult to make close or tight maneuvers where you come within millimeters of the other base. Also, the extra plastic at the front of the base where the template slides in adds several millimeters to the movement template. A lot of players would argue the use of these for that reason, and they wouldn't be tournament legal. My recommendation is you make the feet smaller and you make the bottom into a step shape so it rests on the top of the base with a small overhang that's not much wider than the nibs. Instead of sliding the template in from the front and having the lip come over the ends of the template - make the lip come up over the sides so the template can slide flush to the edge of the plastic so it's between the nibs. Placing a little nub at the back would prevent the template from sliding through.

ALMOST great! thanks for making this up. the only challenge is for most ships its a bit difficult, for example, its too low to pass over B Wings, and for most ships, the front nose will prevent the bridge from being useable (like X Wing, Y Wing, Interceptors). So it's almost there. Perhaps a slight modification, a hole in the middle to accommodate the extended nose of most ships? Support on its base to make it more stable when made higher etc. Still a great stuff
