My question: is there a transfer sheet that contains the squad numbers 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10? The stack of sheets I have all only have 2, 3, 6, 7.
The 6 I can make a 9 but how will I keep my battle company uniform without the other decals :cries:

Any help?

the Space puppie xfer sheets go 1 - 10, but then you'd have to have your numbers looking like a 3 year old wrote them. And so does the vehicle xfer sheet, but the numbers are bigger...

yeah the vehicle ones are just a tad too big :) From the overwelming number of responses I'm assuming what I'm looking for does not exist :cries:

I guess I could always use the SW numbers that look like a 3 year old wrote or I could paint them myself and have numbers that look like a 3 year old painted :D

You could make your own decals? Its easy to do and quite cheap! That way you will get the numbers you want, in the font you want!

Interesting, I hadn't thought of that I'll have to hunt something down.

Here is a good tutorial for custom decals:

I know it says you need a pdf, but as your just doing numbers you can just use word or something similar, I have tried it and it works great. On an A4 sheet you can fit enough chapter symbols for almost a whole chapter!!! So its very cheap to.

Or you could try Greenfield (Griffon) Games: http://stores.ebay.com/Greenfield-Games_28mm-Gaming-Miniature-Decals_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ17625273QQftidZ2QQtZ km

I've used their decals before and they are much better than GWs!
