that 12" bubble that Xabre mentioned is actually a 12" radius bubble, so look more at this being a full 2 feet of preferred enemy for your formation.

Also, didn't the skyfire - interceptor stack end last edition? Or are you just bemoaning the turn 2 strafing run targeting the hydra and leaving the rest of the tanks exposed?
Well, in this list I could least expect my own airforce to come out and crush any fliers that eat my Hydra.

Maybe a better option would be to fit in a Knight Crusader? Icarus for anti-air, another Battle Cannon because i can, and the Avenger to just throw out lots of dice. Plus Stomp for those pesky terminators.

All day, every day. My favourite Knight.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Oh really? The Knight Errant really does it for me, because he is all about getting nice and close.

I own one of each right now. I prefer the ranged beast myself, but the first one I built was the Errant as it suited Grey Knights better.

Wish I owned all of them, when I buy one I'll be busting the big magnets out for real. How interchangeable are the weapons @Xabre ?

Fairly easy. I use some BIG magnets, and they're strong enoguh that I fight them every time I swap out the arms. Instead of using the 'cuffs' at the arms that let them swivel, that's where I put my magnets. It's a little tricky for the Battle Cannon and the Melta, because they use the same general gun casing, with different shield/barrel, so you need to magnetize the shield to the front of the gun, and settle on having a melta with a shell vent, or a battle cannon with fuel tanks.

Otherwise, every weapon arm is magnetizable. You have to pick one of the two missile options for the carapace.

That's where I was thinking of doing it as well, but I have yet to build (er...own) the kit so I have no real idea what the final execution would look like. I'd be tempted to do an o-ring and ball magnet somehow so the arm can still swivel a bit, either the magnets will need to be hidden under some GS or they'll just look like robot bits.

hmmm....I've been looking at closeup pictures of them from the GW site and I think I have this figured out, though it will likely take as much time as putting the model together. Only thing I don't think I could do is make it so the back of the battle cannon is still open for recoil. I just had thought: are those hoses wide enough to house a small magnet? Alternately I could just put metal in the ends and magnets at the points where the hose joins back to the gun.

Dude, read through @Blackadder 's Chaos Warhound project log for good large scale magnetising tips. He uses a melon baller to get a CV joint going!

Thanks for the mention although is seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Coincidentally I'll be resuming my Chaos Warhound log pretty soon so watch for an update.....
