    Transfers are tricky and take some time to get them right. I actually find that it's faster just to paint the stuff on myself! But here a few tricks I picked up along time ago...

    -Trim the Transfer as much as possible, all the bits that overhang can cause it to bunch up.

    -Any place that the decal seems like its bubling, you make a small insicion with a hobby knife to smooth it out.

    Those things can be frustrating thoughand sometimes you'll screw up th transfer and you'll have to try again or just paint it by hand. I belive the GW site has more info on it if you need it..

    Because of the curved shape of the sholder pads, cut the transfer in a circle. It makes it a LOT easier.

    At the risk of continuing a completely off topic remark, what does that have to do with this thread about transfers?

    You should start a new thread for a new topic so people will know where to look for the information. I&#39;d recommend the Armies:Chaos to ask this question.

    Maybe he&#39;s just posting it on all the threads,
    "Do you have any funny conversions?"
    "What&#39;s a good chaos army to play?"
    " :huh: "

    But did the round transfer work? It always does for me.

    Are the transfers supposed to be the be all and end all anyway? I always assumed that as they were so bland and insipid you were supposed to paint over them anyway?
