Ok, so I finally put together a tutorial on magnetizing boyz and bikerz for Gomo. I haven't done Trukkz, Trakkz or Buggies yet simply because I don't have any yet, but they shouldn't be too difficult.

However, the blog entry is quite long, so I figured I'd just link to the actual blog itself rather than try to reproduce it on here.

There ya go. Complete with pictures and stuff.

I haven't had a chance to reed through it yet but it looks promising, I haven't magnetized any of my models before but itís always seemed like a good idea, I will read through it later and give proper feedback then.

I like it. I've never magnetised any of my models, although I may give it a shot soon (a friend has some spare magnets as it happens). I normally just break the arm or leg off where required and repaint. Crude, but effective.

I posted your blog post on Reddit to bring it to the attention of some other wargamers. I hope you don't mind :)

Not at all. Thank you. I've signed up the blog with Google Adsense, so any exposure I get helps out, even if they aren't clicking on the ads. Honestly, it's my first blog and I'm not sure I'm really all that good at blogging, but I'm doing my best with it. Once I finish my last three foot warriors, I'll have the whole gang on there, complete with fluff.

Why thank you!

I just got the idea because I'm low on money and didn't have the funds to go buying twice as many orkz just to be able to use all their options.

I'm planning on magnetising my new Outlaw Motorcycle mob so I shall report in how it goes.
