Decals!!!!!
So I have made a mold to for most of my figs. I had to make decals for a few. No problem. I found a picture set that I like, then I had to go into a paint program and change the colors and the design to make it printer friendly. Man does that take time 1 pixel at a time. LOL, so I printed out the first page and that was all I would ever need. I then put them on and what do you know. The color does not show. Sigh. I had to go back and redo the colors. That being the long part really stinks. I have however finished that and printed out the second set. All I need to do is cut them, put them on, dull coat them and the decals will be done. Things just never are easy. lol

You can use the eraser tool to do color replacements. The background color replaces the forground color. I've used oaint for decals a lot myself.

I'll have to try that next time. Also the scan of the image made the pictures a few shades of grey while a light blue and white was around the image. Would that still work?

Scanners translate colour. I typically replace large section with the erase tool in a color that I can easily replace with an ink tool as it's faster. The smaller areas that require clean up I will usually blow up and if I have to, then I'll do it bit by bit, but typically I'll just capture the color I want to replace and use the erase/replace method if I'm only dealing with a few shades of one color.
Each project is different So I don't hsve a general rule of thumb.

I'm sure photoshop would be better, but I'm not interestd in shelling out the cash for that app.

I find that I do not enjoy the game enough to justify the expense. I'm particularly annoyed with the new monster rules. I am painting other things and haven't touched an LOTR mini in weeks I haven't played in about a month and am really not missing the game.

Well they have really kicked the monsters in the teeth (again). I for one am happy to see monsters being able to kill and not being fead any more. However all monster list can be nasty. Sad to see another person go away.

Well the wheel turns. I and man does it seem to be turning faster than ever!!! Where has all the time gone? I am really falling behind. My goal of converting 100% of my army is killing me. I didn't think it was going to take so long but it is. Sigh. I am making progress and my green stuff skills is moving along. I'm not making and shades out of poop like some people but its a start. :twisted: I am going to hit things really hard again and will be showing new pictures soon. Till then keep charging

Things are going and very very slowly. I am working more than I thought I would and it is killing my progress. I fear at this point i will be unable to finish my project. I'll try and keep you posted.
