I'd like to thank all the taxpayers here for printing off waterslide decals. Have black, yellow and light green text to see what shows up best on the green paint.

Here's a conundrum.  I was going to paint the top of the movement trays but not the sides, because of the 'billiard table' look.  Now wondering whether to even paint the top (basically the frame) to acknowledge the artificial nature of a movement tray.

I do like the Command Trays Leon has done (from my design!) 40mm circle for the command stand, 3 x 10mm for the AdCs (1 per command point) plus a 40x10 cartouche for the name plate.  My favourite bit of non figure kit ever.

The decals are a bit shiny- shinier in the photos. Anyone know a way to matte them without obscuring the writing.

The command stand has 3 on the big disk to who it is a Corps commander.  Division commanders will have 2.
The three individual officers are the Command Point markers.

Spray matt varnish over it, you might using a very soft brush with the matt varnish.  See link

The secret to using decals is to first spray a gloss coat and when dry apply the decals. After they have dried hit it with a flat spray and the film portion doesn't show. But I recommend maybe two light coats of fhe flat spray so it doesn't dissolve the decal.

I wonder how much effort would be involved with 'painting' the strips between the figures & beneath the boots to match the green bases Undecided

I'd undercoat (black of course), then paint the strip green.

Superb!

Having just done decals on some Blood Red Skies stuff (well, left over Zvesda 1/200th bombers left over from an uncompleted and now mostly sold on project) I feel the annoyance. i'm told there's a brush on decal remover that just evaporates the clear portions away?

This.

The problem is tiny air bubbles under the decal that gives the silvery look. Iíve found that brush on varnish works just as well. A small bit of gloss varnish where the decal needs to go, let it dry then mat varnish over the whole figure / vehicle at the end.

Iíve used future floor varnish as often as not, as this dries quickly. But the formula seems to have changed.

The green between the figures is a different green, which is why it looks like I haven't done them. Will go back with the base green.

If I use a brush on matt varnish will that work?
