Fleet Books (with New Style Counters)

We are in the process of completing a series of "Fleet Books" (called "Battle Packs" for lack of a better term)  made up of pages of starship counters along with background "fluff" describing each class of ship and how it fits into the overall fleet dynamic.  These new counters are unique in that they are designed to be used in game systems that have 90 degree arcs of fire or hex-based six-60 degree arcs.  We have found them to work great with various systems, and have taken to calling them "Virtual Minis" as we're trying to give them something of a semi-3d look.  They're intended for people who want to be able to field large fleets in games but can't afford to stockpile a sufficient supply of miniatures.
Here are a few examples:

Cronan Imperium Attack Cruiser-02370 AD

NorAm Federation Through-Deck Cruiser-02175 AD

Pauk BattleShip-02370 AD

InterStellar Federacy BattleShip-02430 AD

Terranis Imperium DeepShip-25,000 AD

UECON (United Earth Commonwealth of Nations) BattleShip-02250 AD
InterStellar Federacy Strike Cruiser-02380 AD

Rex Hegemony BattleShip-02380 AD

Here is the sample cover of the first "Fleet Book"/"Battle Pack":
