Thank you so much, why did I not see the other ones before? :( I don't think I will use the KK2 knights decals, but I like the king.

Lots of great work in there Anthony. I haven't gotten around to printing my own custom torsos, but when I do I'll be back looking at this article. The howling wolf, the forest unicorn, the new black falcons, are all really nice.

As always, Anthony, a fantastic piece of work. The Falcon/Phoenix variations are my favourite!

My least favourites are the ones based on the King's gold plate torso design. The whole colour/style of that torso just doesn't work for me -- and it doesn't matter which symbol is placed in the middle. I don't know what Lego was thinking when they designed that torso -- but then, that's just one torso design in all the myriad designs.

Thanks again. Oh, and the ovoid shield designs are excellent too.

Man... there are so many now :shock: ... I can't wait to get Photo Shop and get started with these.

With so many to choose from... I'm going to have to place a BrickLink order.

Thanks for your time Mr. Sava...

You the KING of torso stickers. Three huzzahs for Mr. Sava!

I like the "formerly only" yellow design that went on the green armor. I'm not sure which color I like it best in, though. I also love the variations as well.

As always, very nice. But I have a little problem. Can anyone give me tips on how to size and print these out with regular old MS Paint? I don't have the $80 to drop on PS right now, but I'm thinking that I need an Order of the Phoenix force.

I've been told putting the images in Microsoft Word will also allow you to print them out at the proper size, but I'm afraid I'm not sure of the specifics. Hopefully someone more knowledgable will reply about this.

I've never actually tried this, but I think that if you resize it in Word, using the rulers along the edge, so that it is as big as the shield is, should allow you to print in the right size. I don't really know, I use ACDSee.

In MSWord change the default settings in measurments to metric if they're not already set that way. Then make your shield width 1.55 cm (this leaves a little tiny extra for trimming).
You may have to adjust the size a tiny bit here or there.

And btw THANKS ANTHONY :D:D:D
