PostSubject: Magnetizing Ravager Weapons   Sun Nov 11 2018, 01:09

So, I’m facing a problem. When I started Dark Eldar, dark lance spam was the optimal load out for Ravagers. Now disintegrator cannons are all the rage, but now what do I do with my old Ravagers? I don’t want to buy new ones for the disintegrators, but I don’t want to be stuck with the dark lances.

I’m wondering if anyone in our community has tried to rig it so that they could switch between the two different weapons, and how they did it. I’m thinking of cutting off the muzzles of each weapon and using magnets to switch them out when needed. If anyone has any recommendations, seeing as I’ve never used magnets before, any tips or comments are appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The simplest way to magnetize Dark Lances and Disintegrators is to make two cuts like so:



You file down what's left of the barrel and simply glue to magnets in there, slightly extending it, but virtually unchanging it visually and making it possible to swap out even for models that have them glued into place. This was the first thing I ever magnetized myself, so it's really the most straightforward way to do it.

Seconding the post above. I keep the Dark Lance base and just magnetize the barrels. It fits great.

I am starting a Dark Eldar army myself and I like the idea of magnetizing weapons/arms so that I can take a nice variety of weapon options. I don't have any experience with magnets so I am bit concerned that it will turn into a bigger pain than it is worth. Some of the vehicle weapons seem easy enough, but I'm particularly nervous about magnetizing arms because they are so thin. What do you guys think? Is it pretty challenging to pull off? Would it be worth the reward? Any tips would of course be appreciated.

did the magnetizing with my first ravager, i went a few steps further and can convert mine to a basic raider if/when needed.

snipping off the tips and drilling in some tiny magnets worked great as the back ends of the guns are almost identical. just be careful getting the cut/magnets aligned properly, ive got one that a little crooked.
