While I got his passion - that was a pretty extreme side of the bell curve of how people approach their hobby. But I certainly agree with the unspoken but similar philosophy that in most games with high randomness like AoS you need several runs with an unchanged army list before you really know what is and isn't working in your list. Ushabti are still in demand for KoW and 9th Age players man. . . maybe also a Khemri Blood Bowl team. It was stillman. The article floated about on facebook just a few weeks ago. I really don't think it was an extreme side of the hobby. It was almost common practice during the middlehammer years, which is why white dwarf and fanatic magazine were flooded with those kind of articles. Magnetising only started getting popular in the past ten years or so. (Not saying that it was never done back then- it defiantly was, but not on the scale it is today and GW releasing magnet ready kits is a brand new concept) Though I've never been bothered by people that magnetise, I'm totally into having one army and sticking with what you have. If I need a model with a different weapon load out then I'd rather buy a new model and paint a new one. I'm not opposed to using magnets for other things though- some of my epic scale terrain is magnetised so I can do things like open gates or remove bridges in game. But never weapons or arms. If something doesn't work then the model can always retire from battle and live comfortable on the shelf or it can be hacked up and repurposed (in the more extreme cases like rarer models) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
