I threw this together after some people asked me how I magnetized the bases of my (space hulk) terminators. This is used primarily to keep the lil' guys in my metal tool box. But you can use the same technique for just about any application.

Hope it helps!

2 quick suggestions for you:

1. a drill bit matching the diameter of your magnets will get a very precise and snug fit

2. in the case of the thin bases, pick up some thick plastic card.. blow a hole in it, glue to the bottom of the genestealer base, cut to fit... and voila. a thicker base.

good suggestions. I'll have to try the plastic card out.
