Moving On Up

Spent some time yesterday and Friday working on the movement trays and magnetising the Clanrats. I thought it might be good to make a little step-by-step (even though there are plenty of proper tutorials out there)

Steel paper cut to size and fitted onto the base of the tray
Two 1/8"x1/16" neodymium magnets stuck to the base of each Clanrat. I initially
 used only one magnet, but the pull wasn't strong enough for my liking 
The two Clanrats sitting comfortably inside the movement tray

Perhaps they're not as comfortable hanging upside down, but they stayed on the tray!

The edges of the tray are covered with PVA and then dipped
 in the same sand as I use to base the figures

When the sand dries, everything is painted with Graveyard Earth.
A drybrush of Bleached Bone, wash of Devlan Mud and then patches of
Static Grass later, and we have the finished tray complete with Clanrats!

I'm halfway through the other tray and magnetising the other Clanrat unit now. Hopefully won't be too long before they're done too.
