I thought I'd take a short break from INQ28 for a moment to paint up a Space Marine Command squad from Forgeworld, and to try my hand at an idea that's been niggling at the back of my mind for some time.
I've never had a very steady hand for tiny banner designs, and coming across the work of Heironymous Bosche I was taken by just how fitting his work would be for a 40k era banner.
These chaps were painted in my house chapter style, white with dark grey. The banner was quite simple to achieve. I measured the space and worked up a design in good ol' Photoshop. The paper I used was a bit too thick with hindsite, but soaking it in water for 10 seconds softened it up enough for me to be able to stick it down with a combination of varnish and PVA. This was then given a couple of coats of wash and drybrush. I think the result is pretty convincing.
