I think it would be a more interesting poll if it made a distinction between magnets on minis, and just using magnets for sabot basing and storage.

My Battlefront Easy 8s and Jumbos had magnets in the box, so I used them. I've found that one must be super careful to avoid polarity issues, like the hovering turret.
They're cool, but not necessary.
However, I do use magnetic sheets to store my steel washer based skirmish figures. No polarity issues here.

Gluing magnets on the hulls and turrets is a &^^%$$! pain.
Once glued on, they are pretty neat. I like them, even with the (*&^%! pain (picking off the glue on his fingers as he curses . . .)

I two uses.
1) All my 20mm WWII infantry are mounted on fender washers. I use magnetic sheets in the storage boxes. The sheets are the type normally used to cover heating vents.
2) I have some plastic river boats for my 25mm Sudan collection. In selected positions under the decks are magnets and the crew figures are mounted on fender washers. I can turn the boat upside down and the figures will not fall off.

I'm the "other." My answer is, "Not yet, but I have plans to."

For storage but not for playing.
