Special Delivery - scouts in Land Speeder

Today I would like to show you how to use neodymium magnets to make an interesting and functional scouts with the land speeder. Our scouts will be able to get on and off their transport.
First, of course we assemble the Land Speeder. Scout being a pilot is not provided with magnet because he has to operate the speeder after delivering his buddies.
Then carefully plan where each of scouts will have its place. Remember that they shouldn’t interfere with each other and that they should be easily removable.
As the scout sitting on the front passenger seat will not be the operating the multi-melta, we need to find a suitable place to attach the weapon.
Then put the magnets in the holes drilled in Land Speeder, scouts and multi-melta.
Check if everything fits.

Now, it’s time to make appropriate bases. Because almost all the scouts are in sitting positions, they will be sitting on bases too. And what they can sit on? Here, we can let our imagination help us - it can be branches of trees, the ruins of a city or desert rocks. I decided to go with more mechanized landscape - the remains of vehicles, ammunition box and to keep some diversity - a tree trunk.
We put the magnets on the bases and we check if everything fits properly.
Now the only thing left to do is to paint them and test them on the battlefield.
