ok I'll bite

Postby azzerath » Mon Apr 04, 2011 1:26 pm

I just ordered the new starter kit

And the other book to field the other factions

I love Mecha, I figure I'll give this game a try. I am really intrigued by the story behind the game and the different forces. Think I'll give the Black Talons a try.


Is it feasible to magnetize all those weapon options? I can't tell from the pictures if they are too small or not.

Some of the weapons are pretty tiny, so you may struggle. However, I've only ever magnetised the field gun on my Thunderhammer. I guess it just depends on the size of magnets and the amount of patience you have.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible to magnetize weapons on the Gears. You could try pinning them, but even that might be problematic, since the weight of the metal models makes them difficult to keep in place.

Ok, thanks. I'll give it a look, but if they are all metal then ya, might not be doable. They aren't terribly expensive and it seems you don't need that many. Both good plus's in my book.

reat we have more players in here, there are very little people who play this game! i ordered the bigger one called the interpolar war begins, its still coming but i'm looking forward to it :D . also, try going on the dp9 website and reading their magazine, Aurora. it is on the front page, it has heaps of info and is really good (also, they use gw paint as they do not have their own brand yet)
heres a link!
