Update: Dropzone Commander magnetized

I received my order from K&J Magnetics, and finally had a chance to finish off the work on my existing models.  All the vehicles are now magnetized to the drop ships, and stay on there pretty well.  The Scout walkers will a little harder, but I got it done.

I also picked up a couple regular model kits for 75% off from a closeout at my local HobbyTownUSA.  I missed most of it though, sucks.  They had a stack of HO scale building kits..oh man I wish they were N scale because that's what I need for DZC.

In a couple months with taxes I plan on building a DZC table.  My new place has more then enough room to set up a full sized gaming table, so that is also on the list.

Anyway, pics..

Now I need to figure out a color scheme..

Dropzone Commander!

First, the good news: I found a new place with just 3 days to spare!  Everything is moved in but still have a lot to do. I also went to storage tonight and grabbed most of my hobby stuff.

Bad news: well, there is no bad news! 

Best news: I was finally able to pick up some Dropzone Commander, specifically a PHR starter army to go along with the other 2 blisters I have

I have put together the first unit, magnets and all.  I found I need more magnets of the right size, and the models I have don't actually make a legal list...but that's easy to fix.

The walkers are magnetized to the connection points and the dropship is magnetized onto the flying stand.  The walkers would be awesome on 25mm bases but that would look silly dangling in the air..

Anyway I have a lot to comment on the models themselves, but will do that in an upcoming video.
