OK... I gave in and did some Tau base markings for people. So for those that didn't see my last thread what I did was make some triangular markers to fit on the AI bases under the Altitude label. The last lot were Orks.

Now the main sheet is the standard Tau Ochre but this can be fixed easily. All you need to do is open the sheet in your graphics program and alter the hue and saturation eg.

If you want a really dark shade like Red gore, Invert the sheet and then alter hue and saturation eg.

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

I was also a bit worried that they might be hard to use. But I can read the numbers quite easily in your photo.

VERITAS/AEQUITAS, I noticed you have long stems on some of your bases - did those come with the AI aircraft from FW, or were they left overs from something else? I had long stems with my Marauder Destroyer, but every other delivery I've had came with only short stems - makes adjusting the dials on some of the aircraft a bit of a pain.

UPDATE: Just rang FW, apparently I should have had long stem pairs as well as the short ones, so they're sending me the stems that weren't included for 15 of the aircraft I've received so far ...

Nope. Just short ones. I used some left overs of 40k sets.

Well according to FW every bag should have a pair of shorts and a pair of longs (so if you ordered 2 Thunderbolts you'd get 2 short and 2 long stems, and if you order 1 Marauder you'd get 2 short and 2 long stems). It looks like the packers aren't putting the stems in correctly - my original order that included the rulebook, 1 Marauder, 2 Valkyries, and 2 Thunderbolts did, but all orders since then have only had the short stems.
