heres an important question (for me) with the amazing new nid beasties, i like the idea of using magnets to attach limbs to save buying hundreds of varient fexs/tyrants.

so i plea that someone point me and anyone else in need in the right direction

and sorry if this has already been addressed, but the search function didnt bring up any magnet releated threads.

thanks

Well, what do you need? Modelling advice, a link where to find magnets?

I think what you are suggesting is a non permanent equipment so you can change your equipment each battle a la Space Crusade

Lee Valley has rare earth magnets. Google *rare earth magnet* and your location.

Rare Earth Magnets are very strong (holding power) I used the 1/16 by 1/16 to hold on the metal arm of a heavy destroyer, it dose just fine and to hold them to the flying base, you would be surprised how well :eek:

I wish I had these magnets years ago.....they are so much fun to use!

would like to see a ball and socket type magnets (like them figures I see in woolies) so you can get better angles and positions on torsos, necks, heck defiler legs!
