Default Where to get small magnets for Crisis suits?

What is a good site to order mini-magnets online at about 1/8" size that I can use on my crisis suits for interchangable weapon systems? A guy at the GW store recommended www.earthmagnets.com but I don't think it exists, having tried it. Any good tips?

That's where I have ordered all of my magnets so far, and I'm extremely pleased with the results. They're a good site with a good selection, and their shipping doesn't take too long either. Something around the "D201" is good for Crisis suit weapons and the like, while something more along the lines of a "D901" is suitable for Dreadnought weapons or Devilfish/Hammerhead engines (makes storage much easier!).

Putting magnets on your crisis suits is a sign of a unsure player. If I see my foe had magnets on his suits, it tells me that he is either a list tayloring noob, or a person who switches around his list and that he will not be farmillier or skilled with it.

Makeing a solid army list means not having to change weapons.





Just saying :P

Or it means that the person doesn't have money pouring out their ears and likes to be able to play with new configurations without having to tear the model apart invest in new suits every time they want the WYSIWYG. That's my reason for it.

He didn't ask whether or not he should do it, Avor. He asked where you can find the magnets. Try to keep to the topic.

Wow, is that to say that you use the SAME army list with the SAME weapons EVERYTIME you play? I bet your opponents love that and you lose a lot. Predictability = Dead. Not to mention the fact that if you can't switch your army list around and STILL be skilled with it, then THAT is when you pretty much suck as a commander.

Zhell you go ahead and magnetize your suits, I do it and I get my magnets from a company called United Nuclear, they have a website and have EXTREMELY high quality N40 Neodium magnets.

- I seek out different oppenents, I have my list built to be what I think is ready for anything. I take pride in that I can make a decent army list where I can rely on it to preform solidly every time.
- Even agiasnt my regular friends, I use the same list, if they do something to totaly tailor agaisnt it I just whip one of my 6 other armies and teach them the flaw of specializeing agaisnt just one army.

Dude the idea that magnetizing your army makes you a weak noob who won't mast his army is just plain stupid. Your elitist attitude helps no one. Not all of us have the money to have 6 other armies. And even if we DID, then re-configuring them only teaches us to play BETTER and adapt our armies. Drop the elitism, your not fooling anyone. Anyone with half a brain will realize that your comments are off-mark and foolish, which I'm starting to think must be your play style as a commander as well.
