Magnetizing the Khador Warjack (The Easy Version)

I got the Khador plastic Warjack kit knowing that I would magnetize it for all four 'Jacks. How could you not? The question became how to do it. Searching online, I found techniques that were very professional, but involved a lot of drilling with increasingly larger drill bits. I didn't want to do that, for no better reason than laziness.

Instead, I used my clippers to slice the arms flat at the joints. I measured first, and only made cuts in the area that is covered by the shoulder socket, and will therefore make the magnet never visible. I then put the magnets on. The results have been awesome, and I'm looking forward to doing some painting on my four new Warjacks.  Here is a closeup of where and how to cut each arm (and then attach the magnet), and pictures of the four 'Jacks.


  1. That looks pretty sweet! Are you liking the plastic? I want to play around with it but don't want to spend the money for a new Khador heavy I won't use.


  2. The plastic is really nice, and it was very easy to work with. I figured that it would make a nice addition to my army since I could run it as any of the four if I wanted to play.


  3. This is such an easy way to magnetize jacks> I powertoolless heartfelt thankyou from me! :)

  4. what size of magnets were used?
