Download Relictors Logo Sheet BOLS

* * * * * 1 Votes

I have been noting for a while that GW does a great job of covering the major 1st Founding and select 2nd Founding chapters with their decal sheets. However, there are a number of great looking 2nd and later founding chapters who get a good amount of back-story and have great alternative uniform colors that never have had decals produced for them. In the interest of promoting diversity in the Marine community and encouraging players to branch out beyond the "big 4" and using the Trait system, I will begin producing logo sheets for some of these other chapters who I think look great and have no GW decal support.

First up is the Relictors. These guys are just great and have wonderful background fluff, rules and wargear from White Dwarf.

I created the original logo in Adobe Illustrator, then made variations of it for size and color (outline and solid color versions). The sheet is designed for printout on Decal printer paper which is easily available online.

The thing about decal paper is that it is clear by default (instead of white), so the decals need to be applied to a light colored surface to be visible at all. The procedure for applying the "outline only" decals is to apply them to a white surface, and wait till they are fully dried. Then using the outlines as a guide, paint in the darker color around the decal. Its is odd, but gets the job done.

Size wise, the larger decals towards the top are best used for super heavies/terrain, and move down in size to the large array of Marine Shoulderpad towards the bottom.
In any case, enjoy and I wish you the best in using this set for your forces.

Please feel free to leave comments if there is a special Marine Chapter you would love to collect, but have no GW decals, and I will see what I can do.
