How to Magnetise an Eldar Support Weapon

Nick speaking,

A quick and easy magnetising tutorial for the current Eldar Support Weapon...


After gluing the set together except for the guns and the top section to the base. First, drill a 2mm hole where the gun sits with a pin vice and insert one 2x1mm magnet, super gluing it into place. You may find it beneficial to put a very small piece of green stuff in the hole first to help it bond...


After checking the polarities to get the magnets the correct way round, super glue a 3x1mm magnet where the gun sits onto the platform on each of the guns. There is no need to counter sink these, as there is enough room for them when the gun sits into place...


For storage and painting purposes, I also magnetised my platform. You don't have to do this, but if you do, it works in the same way really. Just drill a 2mm hole in the bottom of the base and insert a couple of the 2x1mm magnets. I used more than one magnet for this to give it some extra strength. I then glued a 5x1mm magnet to the top section...


Here are the three gun options all magnetised up. I have left the operator off the platform and the other dudes head off, to make the painting side of it easier. I have to say I am really looking forward to painting this up, so much so, that I think I will have to get another one or two of these before I start painting...

  1. Pretty cool mate. Do you find the platforms good in games? I tend to stick with the fire prisms myself
