You mean, as in shoulder pads? I always put the transfer on, then paint over it to make the color bolder and cut out the shininess.* It isn't that hard to out the transfers on, and I always have more in my stack of unused transfer sheets.
*even GW doesn't to that!:sleep:
The one they call UBERMONKEY has a good point, and a good method, but personally I prefer to just imagine I've already put them on, then you don't have to worry about it!
It helps me sleep easier, and as they say, Ignorance is Bliss...
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
banners really(i steal the dark angels symbol but feel i should make the banners have more of a "homemade" feel.
A fine brush (00 will about do, 5/0 or 00000 will be even better), thinned paint and a s***load of patience for touching up any mistakes. Around 2-3 hours to get a symbol right.
yeah the hard thing about banners are getting the folds in the fabric right, hence why u spend 2-3+ hours on it
FOR THE EMPORER!!
For banners, I think that the easiest thing to do is to paint the banner white initially. Then, use a lead pencil (#2 works fine) to draw the symbol as you want it to appear, as well as any background art. The good thing about pencils is that you can erase a mistake, and they are easier to control and draw with than brushes. Once the design is how you like it, you can then paint the banner, using the pencil- drawn design as a guide. You will find it MUCH easier to paint.
For shoulder pads, there are a couple of options. You can use transfers ( a lot of people do), even if you need to print out your own, which can be done with the proper supplies (I would defer to someone who does this for more specific instructions).
I prefer to hand- paint everything on my minis, so you can either make a greenstuff template (as depicted in a recent WD), or, break the symbol down into separate geometric shapes that are easier to paint. Get a "method" down, and you'll find that the symbols are remarkably similar from model to model.
