Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey everyone, like most of the people here, I use magnets on my minis so I can customize them for each game. The only problem that I had with this was having a way to transport all the "extra" parts withought damaging them. If you put them in a ziplock all together, everything rubs together and it ruins the paint job. This being said, I decided to convert one of my carrying cases with a internal "box" to hold all my spare magnetic parts.
I used 1/8"x3/4" Flat bar to create 4 metalic holders to give the magnets someting to hold on to. So here's what i came up with. (pics below)
#1) This is that the case looks like when closed. As you can see, the only thing that is visible are 8 screws & washer combinations.
#2) The way my case is seperated, the left half holds 2 drop pods or Land Raider sized vehiecles and the right side holds my books, dice, templates and other accessories to play the game. As you can see, when the case is closed, the little internal case fits in the right half of the box and keeps everything from moving.
#3) Once you open the smaller internal case, you see the 4 metal bars. Using rare earth magnets, all the little parts fit nice and tight againts the rails and nothing moves, even when you walk with the case. This keeps anything from rubbing together and it keeps everything nice and neat.
Hope this gives people ideas on how to transport magnetic parts.
I had this long signature made up, but I didnt like it...
That looks great! I don't use any magnetized parts, but I'm sure that works wonders. It also reminds me that I need to get a new case. I'm using the plastic cases GW metal minis come in at the moment. It works, but it's not the best.
