I've been thinking that since I've gone to the trouble of stripping all my chaos again In order to give them a worthy paint job, and to tie them more into the name I've given them, Being the Desciples Legion, I was wanting to have writing on their armour, shoulders, arm gaurds, greaves, anything.
And my main question is : what is the best way to go about this? I tried painting "purge, burn, kill" on my grey knights on their scroll area on the shoulder pads, but it was hard to get the right angles to make the writing legible, so what if I made the areas I intend to write on brighter and just wrote with a pen? I have heaps of tiny brushed but I was wondering as I said about a particular WAY to get it done? Or If anyone can show me some examples of how it can turn out that would be fantastic
try to find VERY fine OHP or Map pens, i use them at work when im map reading and iv used them to wright on scrolls befor.

me thinks this belongs in the painting forums...
but to be honest for the most part I have just seen very thin black scribbles used to represent writing on scrolls. Works well enough as the writing would be insanely small anyways.

If you've got one nearby, a store like Michael's (general hobby store) usually has thin pens like that in its caligraphy section. In the alternative, I use Sakura Micron brand. Here it is:

If you go down the tiny scribbly line route then use black ink and a fine but legnthy brush (pointy standard or detail is ideal) you need the point for fineness and the legnth to hold enough paint. If you do decide to paint words then start in the middle and paint as seperate straight lines, do not try to form letters in one stroke, brushes cannot do corners well.
Up, up and away!
