I'm considering giving magnets a try on my next warband (Kislev). I've read quite a bit about how to use them, but I haven't seen anything with regard to the size of magnets. There seems to be a lot of options available. Any experience or recommendations?

Personally I would go with 1/8" or 3mm as a minimum. 
I have used 1/16" on the wrist and it just won't stay during a game.
I would recomend to magnatise the arms at the shoulder for the larger surface area.

Thanks playtable!
I imagine size also relates to strength so it always preferable to go larger when / where I can?
You noted problems at the wrist; any other areas that I may want to avoid?

The wrist was only a problem because of the small size of the magnets you are able to place.
For most of my models, an 1/8" or 3mm magnet is larger than their wrist.
