Re: DIY Decals

Luckily I've got patience so I'll get tarted and see if I can do a decent template for the AL1s. Think they're the nicest figures. Thanks again.

Re: DIY Decals

Thanks for the tips. How do you make a template for an AL1? I use a template I got online but with my own design. Design is great if I do say so myself but maybe it is the template that's too generic. It's not as if you can measure the wee fella for his kit ;)

DIY Decals

Hi, Is there anyone out there who can recommend clear decal paper to me please? I ordered some off EBay but the decals just don't seem to soften enough to hug the figure so there's bits sticking up all over the place. I'm using AL1 Caucasian figures which I like but maybe they're not smooth enough, ...

Hi Puffin,

Thanks - yes, I've read that they're good but again as there's no Games Workshop / Warhammer near me, I'd be ordering online and guessing at the right shades to buy. I will have a look at their range next time I'm in the city though.

Regards,
Jags

Re: Help with colours please

I know you're right. Raring to go now. Really like the look of the AL1s, I know they're not like the classic HWs but they have a nice amount of detail on the feature imo. Trying to decide whether to do the shorts black or white. Been reading about all the 'rare' black shorts versions out there, lol....

Re: Help with colours please

Hey Ogi, looking at the chart on screen, would you go for 81 or 99 for a yellow, or does it not matter when mixing?

Re: Help with colours please

Hi Ogi,

Thanks for your advice. I'd need to buy these online also so I'd be guessing at which shades to buy. Are you in a position to suggest colours for me and I'll have a look at some online retailers?

Thanks,
Jags

Re: Help with colours please

Thanks. One more thing, if that's okay. Is it okay to use Humbrol clear matt acrylic varnish spray on a player that contains matt acrylic paint all over except for hair and boots which are matt enamel?

Re: Help with colours please

Sorry Lloydie, not seeing 98 in matt acrylic. I'm guessing you use enamels? Looks like I might have to switch between acrylics and enamel to get the best colours in that case. Can I just check, did you mean add white to flesh to tone it down. Would adding red not make the player look quite furious?

Hey Lloydie - thanks so much!

Would you use 61 Flesh? It looks so salmon-y. Thought it might clash with my red and white hoops, lol!

Help with colours please

Hi everyone, I've decided to make a Subbuteo cake (don't laugh) for my dad's birthday this year. His team are Hamilton Accies (don't laugh) and I need a team to use as toppers for the cake - ones he can keep. I prefer and I know he will, the classic heavyweight style without logos and stuff but don'...
