Redesign of 25mm Spartan and mixed hoplite designs transfer sheets.

Whilst trying out some of the 25mm Greek shield patterns on the new Wargames Factory plastic hoplites, I noticed that the edges of the transfers were creasing. That was because the carrier film (varnish) could not fit the slightly domed curve of the shields. Now the transfers for the Spartan V (GG5) and mixed hoplite designs (GG8) have been redesigned to only have the
minimum amount of varnish needed. As I hope you can see from the attached picture the transfers fit the shields much better (on the right) and will improve application on all Greek shields, from whatever manufacturer.
You can clearly see the wrinkles on the old designs (left of picture) but there are none on the new version of the designs.

  1. Would it help to add some Solvaset to the older decals? It may be a way to salvage some of them.
