I hear alot of people photocopy images (out of the codexs/main rulebook) and then shrink them down using a copier. They then cut them out and apply them to their models.
I have also heard of people just using paper and (correct me if I'm wrong) use a 50/50 mix of regular elmers glue and water as kind of a glaze to harden the paper and to help protect the artwork underneath it. But that's just what I've heard of course. Hearsay!
I'd probably be inclined to go with what Lshroom said, and hes photocopied the image then applied it to the standard, adding the blood splatters and other minor details on top of that, then giving it a glaze.
Looking at the quality of the rest of the miniature I'm inclined to think that he may have hand painted it.
Up, up and away!
Could it be possible that they used a stencil of some kind for the stars? If not, those stars are crazy good.
It's quite possible, yes. Although I can't say for sure.
Up, up and away!
well, one way to go about it is to:
print the art on waxed paper/ slide transfer paper
then just apply to semi-stiff greenstuff flag
heat up the paper a little/wet 'n slide
peel off paper
wrinkle the flag up (prop it up with stuff underneath until cured) and add a brushstroke here and there to give the illusion of "hand-painted" .. voilá
could embed some wire in the putty so ya can shape the flag easier after its cured a bit.

With my old bretonnian army, I printed images onto high grade paper, then glued them back to back with some PVA (Not too much tho)
However, upon seeing this model, I am going to have to make some British Marines
Rule Britannia :drinking:
Thank you for your opinions
These are useful for me
