    Well instead of buying multiple figures and having the possible configs for my carnifexes and tyrants, i decided to make magnetic nids! :ph34r: and now if i dont want a flying, 2xST(scything talons for those of you who dot play tyranids) tyrant, i pop off the bottom two, and slap on the VC. I havent gotten the wings i want yet but im going to magnetize them too.

    All i did was take a Ryobi power drill, found the right drill bit, made the arm socket wider, and deeper. then i just glued the magnets in. the hardest part was making sure EVERY single magent on my carnifex and tyrant had the same exact polarities facing the rite way so all my talons could be interchangeable, allowing various poses in different games. i need to put a little bit of green stuff to conceal the magnets. after i paint it tho, u wont be able to tell the difference


    my question is...wat rending claws should i use for my warriors. the monstrous creature claw are just a tad big (not sarcasm) but the stealer arms are too small <_< on my warriors, im going to magnetize the venom cannons, rending claws and deathspitters, but glue in the ST on the top limbs, since they will ALWAYS be on, weather they are shooting or cc warriors.


    anywayz here are the pics...tell me wat u think.

    Wow, it seems like the magnets are really strong&#33; what kind of magnets do you use? I&#39;m thinking of doing the same on my TMCs.

    Very Nice Salamander.

    I can`t think of an alternative for the rending claws sadly.... <_<

    But then I like the look of the monstrous ones on the warriors personally.

    Wow thats really cool&#33; I want some of those nifty magnets, but I doubt its worth shipping over magnets from the US <_<
    I guess I will have to start a quest to look for powerful small magnets (any UK guys got any ideas? )
    As for the rending claw query, I personally use the TMC rending claws for my warriors, I think they look great, but I suppose you could use the lictors rending claws, wasnt/isnt there a topic on this subject anyway? you might want to have a look there.

    heeeeere i come to save the day&#33;&#33;&#33;

    magnets for models

    free shipping&#33;&#33;&#33; for all you uk folk. 2.50 per set of 25, i think this&#39;ll solve all your magnet needs.

    each one can hold up to 1/4 a lb of iron, plenty strong enough to hold up a bit of plastic.
    Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!

    Wow they are tiny&#33; and incredibly strong for their size&#33; maybe a bit too fiddly though... I might have a look round their site for some a little bigger...

    Oh wait these are only shipped to US... pity....
