Default Seeker missiles.

Where do you normally attach seeker missiles? Any good articles for magnetising them?

Well, magnetising Seekers would most probably be one of the easiest things... you just need two small magnets and decide in the spot you want the Seekers to go.

I`d suggest round Magnets, so you can drill the holes into the tank with the right tool, and then just insert the magnet.

As for placement: For tanks usually under the front "wings", so that the tip of the missile is visible under the vehicle.

Cheers,
Bone

I'd put it by the landing gear. It'd be there but I don't want my opponent to know they're there until I need them. They'll be included in the point cost, but it'd be a surprise.

And then when I don't have seeker missiles, they wouldn't know but they'd be suspicious which can be just has good. Messes with their mind.

Which would make WYSIWYG absurd.

All equipment - ESPECIALLY weapons - should be SHOWN on the models; hiding it under the tank is won`t score you high sportsmanship scores.

I`d prefer vehicles which have no Seeker shown, but my opponent would clearly say that one is attached at the beginning of the game, than vehicles where the Seekers are hidden away under the tank, and I have no way of knowing.

What you`re doing is literal adherence to a rule without fulfilling it`s intention - aka powergaming and/or cheating.

Cheers,
-Bone

Bah, I look at it as in, war's dirty, and I'd be sure to show it to them ahead of time, but it messes with the beauty of tank to have these missiles sticking out.

Well, considering I only play against my best friend, I see no reason why not.

- You can put magnets or even a magnetic strip, like part of a paper clip or nut in the seeker missile, and use that to attach it to those positions.

I can't find my magnets though, so whenever I take seeker missiles, I just slot the 'fin' that's on top of the seeker missile into the grills at the front or back of the tank 'wings'.
