I've been playing around with the different biomorphs of late, and some of them it turns out look just fine painted up seperately then sticky-tacked onto the mini (Adrenal Glands, Genestealer EC, tail upgrades for a carnifex) Others i've managed to magnetize for the big boys (2 of my carnies have magnetic back plates now, for toxic miasma and the like).
What about things like Toxin Sacks? They are too small to be magnetized, and they are a biomorph i only use occasionally. I was thinking of glueing them to the weapons i usually use them with, on the magnetized arms, but that limits the flexibility.
The problem of course gets worse as i scale down in size to Warriors and the like, I think i've got no choice but to permanently attach them... Can someone prove me wrong? (hopeful look)
thanks for the input!
magnatizing bio-morphs and weapons is nefty, but toxin sacs arn't that flexible because of their size. unless you want to peel them off then glue them back on again every time u want to use them then there's really no way to model toxin sacs to be taken off... unless some1 knows how but just hasn't read this.

They're barely thick enough to pin with small wire or rod. Leave holes where you want them on your 'nids and slide them in. The problem is that you're then dealing with a pile of tiny bits with pins in them that you have to insert into your broods, one at a time, which is a huge waste of time.
I'd just glue the toxin sacs to one set of magnetized weapons and ignore their existance when you don't want to use 'em. Usually you end up with lots of extra weapons when building a tyranid swarm, so if you (or your opponents) are truly insistent on WYSIWYG, you can just magnetize two sets of weapons per 'nid: one with toxin sacs, one without.
You might try using paint to 'glue' them on. It's much weaker and the residue is more easily cleaned off.
