Ryan....make them multiple attack.......use what you can on them.....Example.....Fusion and plasma guns with the missle racks from the shoulder mounts......this way...if one day...you want to use a missle and fusion cannon....you can....then the next day....use the missle and plasma.....see what I'm saying....

and I also like them in flight mode....example...my former crisis suits.....

*sigh*

oh I do miss my first army...and go figure.....I start orks now....I have half the damn Warhammer Universe built played or sold now and I've only been playing just over a year!*LOL*

What CJ means is, use magnets so that you can swap out the weapons

Click through this army, lots of good stuff...

What size magnets do people recommend? I'm thinking in terms of gluing them to the base for transport. I don't want them too weak, but then again I don't want it to take 10lb of force to remove each guy from the case.

P.S. Yes I know that I am and engineer and could look up the magnetic intensity of NdFeB magnets, calulate the volume, expected distance from what ferromagnetic material and figure out how strong it will be, but that's hard and I don't want to.

No idea, never seen anyone magnetize bases (why do you want to do it?)

...But, let's avoid derailing Ryan's topic on Crisis Suit Conversion Ideas (make another post maybe).

You're his partner in crime Marc!

Ryan, I think Crisis suits in very dynamic poses look really awesome. None of the oh look im standing straight up and down (Marc i'm looking at you, although yours look nice Wink) Or oh look im flying but really I look like i have something stuck up my ass.

So do something a little more interesting.
