What magnets are recommended for square-fantasy?

Postby Brother Suspectus » Thu Sep 09, 2010 1:09 pm

Gents,

Ken pointed me to K&J Magnetics but was wondering what you all recommend for gluing to the base of square fantasy minis?

These look pretty good- http://www.kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.a ... D301%2DN52

Also what about the material to adhere to the movement tray?

Thanks, its my first foray into magnets for minis.

I usually use the ZD1, from the same manufacturer. You can find them on the surplus page, and they are quite cheap. On the movement tray, I just use a piece of 1mm steel sheeting. I get mine from Home Depot. For further protection, I add a piece of magnetic sheeting to the bottom of the movement tray, so that it can stick to the steel sheeting that I've glued to my foam tray. To keep the unit from sliding around in my Army Bag.
