Default Need Info on Magnetising Ork Vehicles.

Ok hello I need help Magnetising Killa Kans, Deff Dreads, Battlewagons and Trukks.

I wanna know a few things. What size magnets do I need for each vehicle. How many magnets will I need. Does anyone have tutorials and what magnets are strong enough to hold the weapons in place and where can I get magnets in Australia.

Thank-you for your assistance.

I usually go with the 1/8" size of magnets for vehicles. Those should be strong enough.

dependeing on what the actaul part is, either 2mm or 5mm, 2mm is mainly for those smaller bits and 5mm for things like terminator arms, I get mine from giftsforgeek.com however the ones they do are on ly 3x5mm and 3x2mm which i only realised when they arrived, but this should be fine for ur orks, however i don't know if they deliver to Australia (I think so) also theres Waylandgames(but I'm fairly sure its UK only) if u search online, rare earth magnets or modelling magnets it should come up

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

yeah as i said i would use 5mm adn 2mm, khrone forever I don't think 1mm would be strong enough in this case, given that it is on a vehicle, however just out of curiosity, where did u get them?
