Slotted base/magnets question

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the exact depth of the slotted bases? I would like to magnetize mine, but in a two part base I don't know that I will find pieces thin enough while staying strong enough.

Has anyone had luck magnetizing these?

I haven't tried magets, but there is a recess in the 30/40/50 mm other side base so you could magnitise the middle without altering the ht. Don't have bases to hand to give measurements.

This is something I am already having thoughts about...think I will be using self adhesive magnetic paper strip on the 30mm bases...

The inner lip/space for magnets is pretty thin on the single figure bases but gets thicker as the sizes go up...for transport however worth bearing in mind that despite more depth to the inner lip on the plug in bases the clearance between the playing surface/travel case is very small indeed...not much more than 1mm - however a stronger magnet with up to 4mm depth can be added between the recesses of the plug in bases - no ruler to hand but by eye:

Single figure 30mm base inner lip - 1mm

Multi figure Fireteam base inner lip - 4mm but with 1mm clearance to playing surface where the three plug in bases sit

 40/50mm base inner lip - 4mm

Titan base inner lip -  4mm
