How do I put a model together so that I can swap out different wepons on them? Mainly I want to do this with my terminators and some troops with special weapons and dreadnaughts. I want to have different arms with weapons on them and then be able to put the arms on I want before a battle. (thank you GW for the WYSIWYG rule)
P.S. I'm new to LO and ppl say to search for this stuff, but it may sound stupid to most of you but how do you search for specific topics? When I use the search box at the top right of the page that says "search this website" it gives me either no results or 'articles' that have nothing to do with what I'm looking for.
There is always the option to search the forums for the answer...
The best deal you can find is buy online Rare Earth Magnets and use them on the models... as for how there are tutorials if you google it...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Yeah, I have to say Rare Earth magnets, you can find them by googling them and there might possibly be a link somewhere if you search for it (the search button on the forums, not the site).
It all depends on the size of them to fit in arm sockets, I personally use 6mm x 1mm for my Carnifexes, but that is too big for Terminators.
There is also pinning, which i think is cheaper and easier to get option (not that rare earth magnets are expensive, but if i wanted them i would have to order them from america and i can be bothered). You just need a drill of some kind (preferably with a slow speed setting) and some fairly thick paper clips.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It's just that yours is stupid.
Bought them online from a swedish hobbyshop, together with some 5x1,5mm for larger things. Then you just got to find a drill in the same diameter and drill a hole just deep enough and superglue the magneto in place.
I usually glue one of them in place first then snap on the other and put some paint on the other side of the magneto, to make it easier to get it glued on the right way. (obviously, if you get them on the wrong way, the parts won't stick to each other... doh)
