The Badab Series is complete! Here we have the mysterious Star Phantoms, with the winning logo and scheme by our own George Miller. These guys have a proud history in the 40k universe, being the chapter who took on Huron Blackheart in the siege of the Palace of Thorns before breaking the rebels and hounding them from the surface of Badab. The Star Phantoms also shot him in the face with a melta as a goodbye present! We had a great competition to come up with their paint scheme, and look forward to seeing some awesome pics of the chapter onthe tabletop in the upcoming campaign book.
I have been noting (again) that GW does a great job of covering the major 1st Founding and select 2nd Founding chapters with their decal sheets. However, there are a number of great looking 2nd and later founding chapters who get a good amount of back-story and have great alternative uniform colors that never have had decals produced for them. In the interest of promoting diversity in the Marine community and encouraging players to branch out beyond the “big 4”, I keep knocking out logo sheets for some of these other chapters who I think look great and have no GW decal support.
Here is the link to the PDF file for the decal sheet you can freely pull down and use:
The sheet is designed for printout on Decal printer paper which is easily available online. These decals are designed for the CLEAR or WHITE decal paper. The procedure is as follows:
CLEAR PAPER: Just cout out the black logos, and apply them to any non-dark surface.
WHITE PAPER: Cut out the decals with the blue edging and apply them to a matching blue surface. When they are fully dried, you can touch up any messed up edge detail with blue paint.
Size wise, the larger decals towards the top are best used for super heavies/terrain, and move down in size to the large array of Marine shoulderpads towards the bottom. I’ve included the standard Star Phantoms logo in black (which is really easy to apply) and a smaller number of white ones against a slate-blue field, for those wanting something special for your elite models and/or sergeants. There are versions of both types facing in opposite directions for those applying them to vehicles, so they can always face forward.
In any case, enjoy and I wish you the best in using this set for your forces.
~The Badab logo series is finished! Please feel free to leave comments if there is a special Chapter, Craftworld, or something else you would love to collect, but have no GW decal options, and I will see what I can do. Some of you guys repeat requests are already onthe hot-plate (and you know who you are) 🙂
