Ye Olde Decal Project

Recommended Posts


The goal of this project is to provide Space Marine players with Chapter decals for the numerous official GW Chapters that unfortunately do not have their own shoulder pads or full decal sheets.

The decals that are available in the downloads area are created by Bolter and Chainsword members for the community at large.

Current decals have been created by:
Max Dammit
My Name is Tudor
Celestial Dragon King
BigRed from Bell of Lost Souls
Da Boss

Emperor's Fury



Please make sure you read the Decal description as the file submitter isn't always the creator (particularly from the early days of our downloads section when only admins could load files to it).

If you would like to help out by producing some decal sheets, please contact Kurgan the Lurker.

You can also use this thread to request decal sheets for official Chapters, Sisters of Battle orders, Chaos Marines or squad symbols. However please keep in mind that the people doing the decal sheets are all volunteers and so do this in their spare time. This means that while you might request "Chapter X" decal sheets there is no guarantee it will be done soon or at all. The decals being done are left up to those making them.

New decals will have a post in the News and Rumors forum as well as being added to the master lst here in this thread.

The intial portions of this thread are broken down into the following areas:

Decal Tools
Imperial Space Marines
Chaos & Renegade Space Marines
Pre Heresy Legions
Forces of the Inquisition
Adeptus Mechanicus
Generic Symbols

The following items will help you to create, print or design your own decals.
Graphic program:
GIMP 2.0 - free photoshop type program.

Inkscape - free Illustrator type program.

Decal Template:
Tubal's Decal Template (A5 size)

Decal Paper Suppliers:
Tangopapa Decals

Decal How To's:
Make your own decals by Tom Prestia (PDF)
Make your own decals by Eric Kersbergen
Custom Decal tutorial by Bell of Lost Souls


Try printing the image sideways on the paper. An A5 is an A4 cut in half, so they 'stack' if you print on an A4. Or you could just cut the paper into A5 before printing. US Letter is slightly different in size so it might not be a perfect fit, but printing it sideways should still give a better result :smile:
When I want to print to exact measurements I actually use Microsoft Word to position the images on the paper, set the size and orientation etc.


If you have anything to add to this list please contact a PCA Mod or Kurgan the Lurker.

I'm wanting to use a fleur de lis design for my Black Templar crusade and don't feel too confident about free-handing it. I'd have a go at creating a decal sheet myself but as my computer crapped out on me a while back i'm stuck using a rather old and incredibly slow borrowed laptop that doing the simplest task is a nightmare on.


I'd like to request a sheet of fleur de lis in varying sizes (battle standard, backpack banner, PA storm shield, kneepad and all over design for cloaks) using the image below, but in a golden yellow (retaining the black outline).




Many thanks in advance to anyone who can do this, it will be much appreciated.

Ok folks, we've refired up the Decals thread.


Thankfully we only lost a handful of decals in the upgrade. They are still in the list above but their links have been turned off. If anyone has those sheets, please contact me via PM. All the others now have links that go to their location in the new downloads area.


As ever, if you are interested in doing decals please contact me as well, we can often provide the art you'll need to make the sheets.


You can put your requests in this thread, but keep in mind, those who have done the decals have done so at the cost of their own free time and are not beholden to fulfilling requests for decals. They do so out of their own kindness and love of the hobby.

Hi does anybody know how to print out white transfers?


it just a case of printing desired design and it will pop right out? Only I'm not sure how to get white ink from my printer. I was thinking of getting the white transfer sheets, but then cutting them out will be a bitch.

Ah, would I be able to edit the sheets you have here once I download them or would I be better off asking to owner of the sheets to edit it for me. My problem is I'm doing a Disciples of Caliban army and the transfers are a bitch, BUT if one as to put, let's say a dark angels/Caliban green box around the white that way you wouldn't have to cut out the design and as long as you use transfer gloss (I forget the name of it, lahmian medium or whatever) you wouldn't be able to tell where the outline was. And C and Con this would be most appreciated. Thanks.

If you know what you are doing then yes you could add a green square. However a square decal is going to have a much harder time sitting on the shoulder pad properly (even with solvents) than an X shaped one.


And yes that is the type of paper you can use.

Has anyone got any advice for ordering custom-made decals? I unfortunately do not have easy access to an inkjet printer. I basically just want to do a big run of 100-200 transfers of a single symbol (my Chapter symbol) which is black only. Any advice welcome, forgive me if this has been covered elsewhere.

Hi all, Its been awhile since I've been around. I had a run in with someone who killed the hobby for me. To my luck though I found a new LGS. So its back to my marines.


I was hoping someone could make a decal for my chapter. Its on the generic decal sheet but not in good quantities and sizes. I am using the black border circle with the black lightning bolt on a white background.


Thanks guys!

Great Space Wolves decals, but seems we're missing Logan's pre-Great Wolf decals and the Wolf That Stalks The Stars. Just thinking in terms of completion. 


Also, another nifty decal set might be "Battles of Note," with Armageddon and similar campaign badges, if there are examples out there.
