does anyone know how strong the magnets use in KS5 are?

I want to add some to my KS 1 & 2 pieces

I would worry about ledges sticking together, but not getting any of them this time around. I can see storing smaller pieces on trays, or metal sheets put into regular drawers.

Why not just store the ledge pieces (or other fiddly magnetized bits) attached to a tray or two? ;)
Ding ding ding! Brilliant idea!

Plan for Ledge magnets was to have flat ones inserted into a slot on the straight side parallel to the floor, which will be hidden against something when in use.

Ledges will probably be later in the production run, so probably no pics of those available yet.

Was there an option to get magnetized ledges ?
because if there was then it would be embedded in the piece as they are reversible.

So storage could be an issue but the main issue to me is if you use them on a non magnetic surface - oh like a wooden topped gaming table - then using edge pieces together may result in them clumping together like some dwarvenite rock elemental or buckyball golem (?) and be completely unusable.
Yes, there is a Pre-Installed Magnets option for Ledges. This makes me nervous...they must be completely embedded, right? So Magnetized Ledges on anything but terrain trays will clump together?
Well for the bunnies this is not a problem as we went magnet less in all our choices.

Honestly I suspect they wont clump together on a non magnetic/metal surface as the magnets are only strong in close proximity, but it must be a risk that they do :(

Maybe that is how the earth elemental in the Erinthor Mountains was created - one cataclysmic rare earth magnet singularity event. Don't get your DoD too close or it will pass the event horizon and helplessly pass into the gravitational vortex where the last thing you see is the jade eye of Sysul disappearing into the nether world. :ugeek:

Regardless of polarity issues the walls should stack pretty nicely. They are "L" shaped so alternate their orientation in the stack... flip them so they are stacked wall to floor to wall to floor ... then magnets will be separated by non magnetic pieces.
