Water Slide Transfer text for Books, parchments etc

Recommended Posts



Project image for Forgotten Chapters - Purity Seals and Parchment Transfers
My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.

The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full. 

Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?


seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

Argh!   I really want two sheets,  but the timing is wrong.  Watching it for now.

I already have some from a different manufacturer, but can't have too many of these.    


I would have preferred that the Warhammy stuff be on separate sheets, but... 

(Not at all interested in that)


What about adding a map or two? 

Both pirate type 'X marks the spot' and more fantasy 'here be dragons' maps.

Last 24 hours.  A single pledge now includes two sheets of transfers for your scrolls and books, as well as letters and symbols.

I went ahead and backed for the "one sheet" pledge. I probably don't have nearly that many books or scrolls to worry about using more than two sheets over the next several years.

I'm also in. It's a fair price for the amount of headache it saves me by not having to freehand those areas. And while the whole idea seems very Warhammer inspired most of the sheets are generic enough imho.

Backers should have got a KS message with the option to register to swap sheet 1 & 2 with another backer if they prefer to only have one type (printing means the company will be getting equal amounts of both so they can't just let you do it freely)


also access to a webstore where you can order a few alternate transfer sheets as add ons (Warhammer space marine squad stuff for the most part, nothing I want but if you backed worth checking just to make sure there's nothing you want)


looking forward to this

Unfortunately problems with the designs submitted to the printer as GW is claiming some as IP so the printer(s) won't go ahead,

He doesn't want to get involved with a legal fight with GW (hardly surprising) so he's looking at either redoing whatever they have a problem with (not specified but i'd guess either god or legion specific stuff?) or seeing if he can refund and cancel the project

I hope he can just redesign whatever is the issue since I don't need this to be 40K specific and have posted as much in the latest update,

if you agree (or if you prefer a refund) please let him know so he can make the best decision possible

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!
      "A dark fantasy tabletop game with spell casting & area control.  The fate of the colony is at stakes; build your empire & rule the realm!"
      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.


      Stretch goal unlocked:  backers now get the sexy dice! :)

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      "The Townbuilder is a web application with which you can create custom 3D printable buildings for Tabletop Games. We provide detailed 3D models in the form of small building blocks that you can then use to create the perfect building for your table. All of our buildings can be printed support free and feature playable interior.
      You can either start from scratch or modify one of our many prepared templates to fit your needs."
      This might be a huge step in 3d print files for buildings. With HeroForge, you can design your own miniature and get a printfile for it ... this here allows you to design multi-level buildings and get a printfile for them.
      This building was created with the use of the software and you can download it from the KS page for free:

      Open Beta is already up and running (link on KS page)
      I'm very impressed (and a bit happy that there finally is a project from Germany that is THAT awesome).
