While I was playing I was finding it difficult to see plane markings. So what I did was make some triangular markers to fit on the AI bases under the Altitude label. They worked out really well so I thought I would share. Here's what they look like

I've laid them out so you have access to all 7 plane glyphs for 6 different squadrons.

This is what the whole sheet looks like. (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/j.fay1/mageboltrat/squadrons_lowres.jpg)

All you need to do is
1) print them out at 620 pixels / cm (1575 pixels / inch)
2) Spray the sheet with some gloss varnish, to give them a bit of protection
3) Cut them out with a pair of scissors.
4) Paint the back of them with PVA (Will be really easy to remove if you need too)

Very nice sir.

What rules did you settle on for the Transport? I see you are using the GW Epic fightas as well. I really like them for their character and individuality. I wish FW would make some varients.

Yet to try out the rules on those blighters, I think I'll dust them off on tuesday, give them a whirl and then see if they need repointing.

If I could think of ones that would be generally usefull for other races I would. Orks are nice and easy. But with Chaos you have 9 legions, Imperials could be any colour / squadron, Tau again could be any colour or sept world.

What about if people did requests? :angel: For example say some Iyanden craftworld eldar :angel:

btw, I think your ork ones look great and are a fantastic idea :)

Seeing as I have an Iyanden Epic Army, Iyanden seems very very likely in the future.

I have done a tau set tonight. Haven't had a chance to upload them yet. they are done in duotone so players can load them up into their graphics packages and use the hue controls to match them to their fleet of planes.
