Really considering getting some magnetic movement trays, just wanted some input from people who already own them! They're not too chunky or tall or fiddly? Also can you beautify the edges easily?

I used them on my Night Goblins (tray + flexible steel base, rare earth magnets on the figures). Very happy with them - if I still played WFB, I'd use them on all of my units.

The trays are easy to assemble, and would be easy enough to decorate the edges - I didn't bother with mine, but you could sand them a little to bevel the edge and then add sand/flock/etc.

Only (small) issue is that the magnets were very slightly too short to fill the plastic bases, so they left dimples in the flexible steel where they had pulled it up towards the models smile.gif Not a major problem, and much better than having the figures fall over due to weaker magnets.

Welp, I've long received my B2B magnetic trays, and they're wonderful! Not ROCK SOLID, that would require two magnets on each base, but they certainly make movement trays %200 more useful, with much less rank and file jostling!

Converts you to damned threaded messages.

I prefer to critique things from a point of limited information and no understanding.

I've just removed the "threaded view" part of the link, so it shouldn't break anything now.
