Default Decals / transfers for Ogre Miniatures?

So Obviously looking for 1/300 decals, and certainly the old-school number font that is on the counters [forget the name of it, just remember it is from the early days of computers].

Also, would like the spartan helmet and hourglass of the combine and paneuros.

Also, anything else you think would be good. I guess some larger decals for my OGRES would be good, the 1/300 size will look small.

Anyone know who has these?

SJG posted an image file PDF some time ago with a plethora of what you want, -- but it's an artwork, not decals. You'd have to get them turned into decals on your own.

I can't find where the image is posted just now though on their website.

Edit: Found it:

You can take a look at fighting piranhas decals
http://www.fightingpirannhagraphics.com/

the do decals for battletech (similar scale) and historic.

Also at GHQ decals for WWII and Modern military decals
http://www.ghqmodels.com/store/micro-armour-decals.html

Edit: You can also find cheap Robotech 1/285 decals (zentraedi and robotech defense force) from the failed kickstarter in ebay

It is nice that we get a free sheet of graphics. Really!

However, I am finding it a bit harder to get them made into decals and am gathering a lot of conflicting evidence about how easy it is to print decals on one's own printer.

This sorta leaves one with the option to have a someone do the decals for you, but it is SJG IP, but they don't make decals and gave us the images free...

Not a full conundrum. But it seems to me that it would be easier for SJG to just contract someone to print the decals as a license product and tell us to buy them there.

Not that I know anything about running a hobby business...

OK, so the problem is that I presently can't make decals with my printer, at least not to my knowledge. So then the question becomes, who would be willing to print the artwork out as decals. This raises a sticky problem. I contacted I-94 who said he'd be happy to print out as many as I, we or SJG would like, but would want something from the in writing.

At the end of the day, it is great for SJG to give us a sheet of artwork. But it would probably be easiest if they signed a release, had I94 make hundreds of sheets, then sold them thru them or thru Warehouse 23.

At least that's the way it looks to me.

The graphics we posted are for personal use only. Others may not print/sell these decals without a license (and we're not looking for a licensing partner at this time).

Please do not distribute our files without permission. Those who wish to use tools they may own are welcome to download our files and use them for personal projects, not to sell to others.
