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'd recommend the Armies:Chaos to ask this question.

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

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?

I cut the transfers into 3 - its the curvature of the pad.

BA and DA transfers especially are easy to do this with (2 wings anmd the central motif). That way they aren't curving over so much surface. Fiddly, yes but it works. And I varnish soon afterwards.
