Default storing your magnatised weapons

what do you do with them? mine are sitting in two bowls (one for left and right) but that wont work for carrying them to and from games. i dont have room in the cases for them, and i dont want to put them on before the game, so what do you do with yours?

Well when i finally get around to magnatising them, what i'll do is have one polartiy in the arms and shoulders, and the other in the guns. Then just store them in the little box you get with the Commander and Broadsides as a little weapons crate =P

I've got a large box (fishing tackle box) with all my models in it. I also have a section for weapons, so before the battle I just reach in and grab the weapons I want.

I just keep all the weapons in a ziploc. Works fine...

I've toyed with the idea of making a mini-armory out of those daily Rx/pill holders.

I use metal tins, and line them with the magnetized weapons.

All 4 hard points on my suits are the same polarity so I can use all the weapons and options in all locations. Then I store them in a multi-tray tackle box from Walmart. Suits lay down in the trays and weapons sort easy into the smaller holes.

I bought something like that for my Magnatized pieces from a hobby store for .99 cents per trey, 1inch squared, 4 spaces by 10 spaces. I really use all spaces in my 3 boxes considering I magnetized all the arms of all 40 assault marines in my Blood Angels army. Crazy? Maybe. Economically useful? Very.
