One of these involved a change from my regular Panzergrenadiers, to the SS variety, who have an option to upgrade a number of teams from the platoon to being Panzerfaust equipped.
Rather than buy a whole new packs of Grens to do this I decided to just add the Panzerfaust teams, via rare earth magnets...
So I took an existing base of 4 guys;
|Standard base awaiting conversion|
... and carefully removed them from their base. I prep'd the Panzerfaust guy and drilled out his base from the underside, and superglued a magnet into place.
I then drilled out a hole in the original base and glued a magnet into the hole, getting it flush fit with greenstuff from the underside. Then I put the original 4 guys back on the bases and re-did the flocking. Panzerfaust guy was painted up, and hey presto, he sticks nicely into place. So no having to guess or remember which stand is the panzerfaust...
|Magnets in place and original figures rearranged...|
So I didn't get mixed up with magnet polarity, I marked this base H for helmet for the panzerfaust guy, as the other was wearing a cap (I did two bases at the same time)
|Magnets drilled and glued into position|
|Hey presto, Panzerfaust MG team.|
|MG team with 'fallen tree trunk.'|
|Two MG/Panzerfaust teams|
|Two MG/'log' teams|
