Quick magnet tip

 

I have started (at long last) assembling my 4 Necron Ghost/Doomsday Arks. They will be fully magnetised of course (thank you Nick Beer for the tutorial).

 A quick tip for glueing magnets in series: use a larger/different magnet as a reminder of which side is not to be glued.

  1. Glue magnets to the first series of components in one go (in my case the gauss flayer’s supports).
  2. Put the “magnet handle” on the other side of the magnet stack (or, if using another type of magnets, plop them onto the other side of the handle).
  3. Glue the magnets to the second series of components (in my case the gauss flayers).

This solves the problem of mixing polarities and having to fix things later. Been there, done that, did not like it one bit.
