Magnetized Naga Strider

Postby Fireman Tim » Wed Dec 15, 2010 6:27 pm

The Southern Naga strider model comes with loads of options to create multiple Naga Types. Magnets are 1/8" Rare earth which you can find here at MWG.com

I managed to magnetize mine so that I can swap between a Long Fanged Naga and a ATM equipped Naga.

Sweet! That mini reminds me of some old video game I can't remember the name of...
Magnets are fun aren't they!

How hard do you think it would be to magnetize other models, like the Black Mamba?

Load more pics coming this week. :twisted:

EEEEPPPP! :shock: Black Mamba? Pretty much impossible. The only thing you could maybe do is pin the weapons, but even then... very difficult. :(

Mammoth, and other striders yes. The various tanks, yes. Gears, nope.

your Naga comes with an ATM, will it be dispensing cash on the battlefield?

No but with two X25 Damage, +1 to Hit, Long range and Guided, it is sure to cost my opponent... dearly. :twisted:

What size magnets did you use and what size drill bit did you use to bore it out?
