Actualy I havn't tried this yet. IN Flyers are far too expensive for me! Not that I wouldn't love to use them.Also, I suppose these ariels are glued to your flyers instead of being 'screwed' on? I just think there might be times when I want to represent the flyer as being completely grounded like when a lightning is just sitting on an airbase.
I own 1500 points of Elysian Guardsmen, I'm fairly confident I know their weight now :ninja:Worlds Collide said:The magnets would have to be exremely large and bulky to support the weight of a Forgeworld flier. Remember that Forgeworld products are constructed of resin, and resin is much heavier than than the polymers that GW uses for their models.

Sometimes the most obvious solution is the best.
Worlds Collide said:Good luck.
I would hate to have magnets when someone with a large posterior bumps your gaming table while strolling by and your aircraft comes right off the magnet, crashes into your opponents models (breaking some) and snapping a wing off of your own flyer in the process.
There aren't any $150.00+ products in my house that I would suspend in the air from a magnet; even a rare earth magnet.
Wow, you gotta post a pic of this dude! It would be a crime not to, it sounds really awesome especially with those guardsmen rappalling down from ropes I actually was thinking of doing something like this myself.Von_Smallhousen said:I used a removable metal rod which i got from a hardware store to hold my Valkerie up, but also to balance (although not intentionally, but it worked well) i've modelled three of my guardsmen descending from the Valkerie (which is supposed to be hovering) by absailing down "rope" which i built from thin copper rods, with smaller filament elements from the wires you use to hold picture frames up on. Two of the rods actually touch the base, and i've pinned them in, and they act as stabalising elements along with the central rod.
In conjunction with the filaments around the rods and some decent painting work, it actually looks really nice.
