Licenced work Edit
Ad Astra Games produces pewter miniatures in support of the Attack Vector, Honorverse and Traveller lines, as well as full color source books on the militaries of the Honor Harrington Universe, called Jayne's Intelligence Review (so far, on the Royal Manticoran Navy and Republic of Haven Navy), as well as other Honor Harrington merchandise. The name "Jayne's" is a pun on the naval books by Fred T. Jane.
Other products Ad Astra produces include calendars, t-shirts, patches and window clings for the Honorverse product line, and role-playing games set in their various licenses using a variant of the West End Games' D6 game engine, including War World, Tran and the Honorverse.
