Shield decals

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a suggestion for where I can order shield decals for the human warrior shields?  I'd like to put some kind of emblem on them similar to what we see in the official pics, but I dont want to try painting the emblems.  I think a decal would work just right.

Do we have any more info about common iconography for Daqan forces?  So far all I've seen is the tri-pointed crown and I'm not wowed.

I just finished the pre-dip painting of my Spearmen and I'd considering putting on decals. I've got tons of old 40k decals and there's some good tropes in there that might make good iconography: roman numerals, swords, maybe some animal outlines, wolves, etc...

I may just end up doing my own thing, but if there is actual icongraphy I can use that would be great.

You could also try model train suppliers like precision design company in California. They do custom decals and you may need to supply the artwork.

Got impatient for background information on heraldry and so I used the "Salamanders" chapter shoulder emblems from the "Space Marine decal sheet".  Its' basically this emblem in white on an green background I rotated thm a few degrees clockwise to be roughly oriented to the the jaw line.  The size is perfect too. From side to side it's just a bit shorter than the distance between the reinforced sides of the spearmen's shield.

Kind of a cool emblem that could be a lizard or a dragon or some other beast and since my guys are painted green it seems appropriate.  I had forgotten how easy decals are. I got all 32 soldiers decaled in a bit over a half hour.

@Budgernaut showed some screen captures of the owl symbol on some cavalry in BattleLore: Command.

Thanks for that.  I really like the Owl, but I'm glad I went with the Salamander.  I'm trying to get the army done while my enthusiasim for painting them is high.  Waiting for new decals to arrive (or be created) would have been too long to delay. 

Still, anybody know anywhere  that is selling Owl decals? I might do another unit of Oathsworn when they are released and it might be cool to go with a variant paint scheme and iconograpny.
