Default Interchangeable Crisis Weapons

I'm basically looking for any tips on where to get magnets of a suitable size so that my crisis suits can be equipped differently.

Was I hallucinating when I saw a tutorial on this somewhere on this site? I coulda sworn....

There's actually a sticky on the conversion board...

As for purchasing Rare Earth Magnets:

...dear God, what have I unleashed upon this forum? :P

I usually just stick the weapons on the arms. No glue. This causes them to fall off a lot during battles, but it's only on the board so it's not that bad. And I didn't glue the arms in socket, so that means I can just take the arms off (which makes it easier to not loose pieces.)

Amazing Magnets gives youa great demo package with your first order. KJM gives you few small ones free but allows you to order smaller quanities. 1/8 the way to go. 1/8 x 3/16 for general duty and 1/8 x 1/8 for metal. Order way more than you think you'll use. I went pretty crazy but it's nice to have all your weapons and drones magnetized.

I've been using 1/16" x 1/32" on the devilfish chassis, for everything from doors to drones. On my crisis suits I use 1/16" x 1/16" and 1/16" x 1/8" for weapons and such.

Maybe this could help, I just posted something the same, but it doesn't include magnets.
I hope it helps, as discribed in the posts I'll add a tutorial if there is enough interest.
