Ok cool. Thanks for the tip.

I'm still trying to decide if I magnetize the assault marines arms so I can use them as Grey knights too!

I mean I have all the other models painted that that army will contain afer all...

What will happen if this army goes near someone with a pacemaker? I am imagining hearts leaping from owners chests because of this.

the magnets only have an effective range of an inch or two not a big deal at all
