Awww... crap... I completely forgot about doing this. As soon as I get home tonight I will put up the magnet sizes I used. Sorry, holiday weekend and trying to get work done before leaving early Friday morning makes me forget about things.

Alrighty, I used 6x D21 magnets for the cavalry bases. The magnets did not sit flush with the bottom of the base but the combination of 6 magnets hold the horses firmly to sheet metal. Here's the link to the magnets used on the cavalry bases:

And I used a single D32 magnet on each 20mm infantry base:

Hopefully, that helps everyone out!

What do you use on the movement try?
Just an iron/steel strip or do you use a peice of magnetic sheet?

The magnetic sheeting works but not as well as just using sheet metal. I took Andy's advice and just bought some sheet metal and tin snips. I was initially afraid the edges would be very ragged but surprisingly, the tin snips cut pretty cleanly. So, I would advice sheet metal over the magnetic sheeting when using these rare-earth magnets.

Wouldn't you know it.. sold out! :p I guess I'll wait.

Anyone else interested in this? I'm probably going to buy a lot of 500. I'll need about 200 or so for now. Who else is interested (in multiples of 50, if you don't mind)?

They're $10 for 50 magnets (good for 20mm or 25 mm bases).

We can also talk about cav, but will likely get a much smaller order.

I'll be needing about 120 magnets for infantry and 10 for cavalry, so count me in. Increments of 50 is good to go. How many cavalry are you looking to magnetize Nidal?

It looks like we can get the 500 for $20 cheaper if we go with 1/4"x1/8" instead of 3/16"x1/8". Jinn said 1/4" works fine for the infantry, slotta bases included, so we should buy D42:

www.kjmagnetics.com/prodd...D42&cat=10:eek If we get the 1000 order, 50 would be $6.44. Can't go wrong with those prices. It actually cost me MORE to magnetize my O&G's... and that was a TON more effort!

Ok, so I'm down for 150 infantry magnets, and I guess I'll go in solo for 25 of the ones Jinn suggested for cavalry (only $2.25!

I'll wait to hear about interest for cav magnets, and throw it into the order to help you guys avoid shipping charges.
