Magneticus Titanicicus

More magnet sizes are now in stock. The 5mm x 1mm are ideal for Games Workshop’s Adeptus Titanicus. They were thoughtful enough to include space for these magnets in the weapon mounts of their Warlord titan miniature. Space Marine was my first game, at the age of maybe 9, so I’m super-excited to find a couple of hours in which I can assemble my own!

The 5mm magnets are also available in .5mm thicknesses for tight spaces and 2mm, which are especially useful for securing heavier models on the magnetic movement trays. Make sure you glue the movement peg in if you’re sliding really heavy models around ūüôā

For really big jobs, I’ve also added some 8mm x 2mm. A few of these should hold even 40K titan weapons in place!

The old N35 2mm x .5mm magnets have been replaced by some extra strong N52s, so that should be great for those of you who need to magnetise super-small miniatures. Especially useful for the weapon mounts on Dropfleet Commander’s ships.

The 2mm thick magnets are great for securing plastic miniatures to magnetic movement trays, too.

Accessories!

It’s been a long while since I introduced any new products and, this time, there are no new resin pads or other parts.

Instead, I’ve put a lot of time into designing these plastic movement trays for use with 25, 32, and 40mm bases. They take up minimal space on the board, becoming almost invisible compared to the ugly, chunky, laser-cut MDF trays I see at events and online. Bases are held in place internally by 3 tabs, and are able to be further secured by magnets, thanks to the ferrous rubber discs included. Resin bases can be used by clipping the tabs off and relying on a stronger magnet to hold them in place. A clear acrylic rod can be attached to make moving the trays easier.

They take paint well, but are provided in black or grey, so already blend in well for most people. I’d recommend 2mm thick magnets. 2mm diameter should be fine for most plastic miniatures, and 3mm diameter for resin bases, and heavier models. The acrylic rod can be push-fitted in a majority of cases, but I would recommend gluing it in place with super glue. Unfortunately, polystyrene cement won’t work with the trays.

The standard trays are available in 5x25mm, 5x32mm, 5x40mm sizes. For units with leaders on larger bases, there are also 4x25mm+32mm, and 4x32mm+40mm.

Additionally, I’ve released a set of two widgets designed to make the implementation of placement mechanics, such as Bushido’s Bodyguard, much easier. Each widget has cut-outs for bases sized 30mm, 40mm and 50mm. The straight edges of the widget can also be used to measure 1″ and 2″. Check out the photos on the product page to see how they are used.

Lastly, I’ve been stocking metal balls for mixing paint for a while now, but hadn’t announced them. Simply drop one into a paint pot or bottle to assist mixing.

New Magnets & Orders Being Dispatched

New Year, and some new magnets hit the store. All .5mm thick, in 1, 2 & 3mm diameter varieties. Some 2mm diameter magnets are also on sale to clear.

Anyone who ordered over the festive period, your orders are going out – unless you ordered Hellmask heads or the ever-popular piked veteran pads. I have made extra moulds and will try to catch up with these ASAP!

April Releases

A¬†few new products this month. First-up are some larger pads which may prove useful for those of you interested in true or art-scale conversions. If they are popular, I may introduce more variations. Requests are welcomed but I can’t necessarily fulfil your wishes! When I open commissions again,¬†this style will be one of the template variants available.

Second product has no good name as yet. It is an infantry accessory set of 5x heraldic shields and 10x elbow couter decorations. Suggest a decent name which I use and I’ll send you two sets for free!

Lastly, I have started stocking neodymium magnets in two diameters (2mm & 3mm) and two thicknesses (1mm & 2mm). Hopefully, these will sell well and I can increase the range. Discounts are included when you buy greater amounts Рjust select the pack size on the product page.
