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. First I made Orks, then Tau, and now by popular demand Chaos. This time I went with something generically chaos. It is very possible that when I come to paint my chaos I will release some more power specific markings.

I have included 3 wings of 5 Hell Blades and 4 markings for Hell Talons.

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

And as always feel free to post up pictures of them in use, as I'm not going to have a Chaos Flight painted for quite a while.

@MAGEBOLTRAT:

Those go to my best friends chaos armada. I will post pictures as soon as he has put them on his bases. Thank you one more time. :D

EDIT: MAGEBOLTRAT, I just printed them off and I think the skulls are almost no longer visible in the small scale to fit the bases. Just a heads-up. Maybe go with some symbols like Khorne (bigger)???

Can't access the new file either. It seems you need to log in.

Great work again, Mageboltrat. Very good design.

You're a talented artist. If I were to play Chaos (hiss), then I would most certainly use these.

May be a dumb question but how do I do that? :eyebrows:

Sometimes it's not possible depending on your printer, if not find out what dpi it prints at and change the image size.
