Looks nice! What design program did you use? Have you thought about trying it as a tabard rather than a direct sticker? The colour combos on the figs work really well also.

I more like stickers and these are old toros on which I sanded the print in my earlier years. (Luckily, I don't have a lot of these :D )

I'm a little late to the party here, but these are pretty slick looking. Great job!

Nice customs.
What kind of paper do you use for the stickers, stickerpaper, waterdecal? And what kind of printer do you have or what settings?
Just asking because the prints look amazing. When I print custom torsos, my printer little messes up the colors because the detail is so tiny.

I use a normal inject printer with inject paper (gives better quality), then I put clear tape over it. I usually fix them with doulbe sided tape, it's not the thinnest way, but the easiest (you just can put it away...) 8)

Btw. I noticed that I forgot to put the decals here:

The shield I made some time ago... that's why it's different to the others + the proportions arent perfect (1/2 mm to short... or 1/2 mm to wide)
I might make a better version... :wink:

I use Photoshop elements 4.0 demo version, which is free but you don't have all tools available... They're still more than enough to design some decals :wink:

For all who want the decals: I had to delete them at my Flickr page because I had more than 200 photos and I still want all visible... So if you want them just write me a small message with your email adress and I can send you them :wink:
