Product Review: Forgeworld Imperial Fist Decals

The Imperial Fist decals I ordered from Forgeworld finally showed up on my doorstep the other day.

All in all, it is a pretty good sheet. There were a few printing glitches here and there, but it is a welcome addition for the squad markings because my freehand leaves much to be desired.

Starting off with the decals and the must have Micro Sol/Micro Set duo:

After applying Micro Set to the shoulder pad, the decal is dipped into the Micro Set bottle. It only takes about 30 seconds for the decal to become separated from the backing and is pushed onto the model with a brush.

And the tactical arrow:

After blotting dry with a tissue, Micro Sol is then brushed on the decals and left to sit overnight.

You can see here the difference between the Forgeworld decal and the standard decal that comes in Space Marine boxes.

I'm happy to have sheet and I recommend it to any Imperial Fist painter.
