Magnetizing predator sponsons

This is how I have magnetized my Rhino-chassis. I have four Rhinos, which can go as Rhinos, Razorbacks or Predators.
What you need:
  • 3 mm magnets
  • 3 mm drill
  • Some sprue
  • Scalpel (optional)
  • Super glue
  • Marker pen (optional)

First, I drill a hole in the sponson and glue a magnet in there. 

Then I cut a piece of sprue to fit on the chassis. I make sure that I cut it down a bit so the sponson can fit. After this, drill a hole in the middle of the sprue (I use a scalpel to make a small dent to guide the drill).

Finally, glue another magnet in the sprue. Make sure that you have the polarity in the correct direction. Easiest way to do this is to let the magnet go on to the sponson, mark it with a marker pen and then use the mark to remember which side goes first in to the hole in the sprue.

Baal Predators, ready to mow down some xeno scum!

Smoke markers

I decided to make some smoke markers, good for 40k when you pop smoke for example.

What I used:
Poker marker

Paper clip

Some aquarium filter thingy

Glue gun

Skull White and a light grey primer
  1. Glue a piece of the paper clip to the poker marker
  2. Take a piece of the plastic filter thingy, glue it to the paper clip. I just wrapped it around and then glued the seam. 
  3. Prime with grey primer, then add some white when it has dried.
The result

A small package arrived in the mail the other day, some 105mm Howitzers for my Rifle Company is here!
I will probably not have time to paint for them for a while, but I can put them together with some hobby-tac and play test them at least.

There was also some hair (as my wife called it) in the parcel, just waiting for the rest of my order and I will finally be able to finish all the basing I have left to do for both my Rifle Company and my Flesh Tearers.
