That looks amazing man! It puts my Land raiders to shame!

Quick question though, can you show us how you enabled the guns to be swapped out?

First things first, someone wanted pictures of how I magnetized this guy. The plus side it is easy, the downside is you will need two sets of sponsons, so the Land Raider case is not going to come with everything you need, but you can go to bitz online and get what you need rather easily.

Image

Notice the magnets in the doorways, they need to be painted over, or very well hidden thanks to the doors that will go over them. You don't even need them on both hatches, but depending on where you wish to position your weapons it won't hurt to use both. I used the 1/8 x 1/16 magnets.

Now you do the same thing with the weapon mounts, if you do two magnets you don't even need to be perfectly matched here. The magnets should provide JUST enough pull to keep the weapon mounts in place even if you turn the vehicle on its side, but come out really easily when you pull on them without moving the vehicle itself.

Keep in mind the backside of the mounts don't need to be painted or anything, hell you can maim the hell out of it with your drill, because no one should ever see that stuff anyway.

New guys just finished.

Attempted to make the sergeant black, and failed...

The whole squad is magnetized, and I painted up the Heavy Bolter and Powerfist just in case, but I doubt I will be doing the boltguns and shotguns anytime this year...

Viking 21 perfectly expressed what I think. I want to add that I'm extremely fond of the loincloth/parchment. It really looks great!
