Head over to the official FFG forums thread for exact url to print from.Oh! And try to ignore the grey dots you are seeing inbetween the banners.

Why do Tzeentch's banners have a chicken on them?

I used this image for reference.No chicken I promise...though I could make fun of Tzeentch and call him cowardly like a chicken. His colors are blue and gold and purple/pink hues. If you played the online game you would see his magic is pink and turquoise energy mixed together.



Thanks for the compliment btw. After staying up all night for 14 hours, I don't expect a thanks anymore for giving people free labor. World is getting to used to communism I guess. Now my deeds just blend in and are taken for granted. Maybe my friends are right and I should stop giving people free things. Especially when I get critiqued on something that is my own personal project and I am not being graded or payed for doing it.

"Take what you get and don't throw a fit" that was what I was raised on lol.

If you didn't mean to come across as a smart ass then I apologize. I saw no compliment in your post just an insult.

I thought it was a neat idea and might be something I would use if I start seeing more of my pieces getting broken.

My only "complaint" is I couldn't see the graphic that well because it was so small (assuming it is to be for scale). But it would be nice to see the detail. Perhaps upload it as a file or higher resolution graphic. Might avoid the chicken comments as well.

I saw this over at FFG and was glad you posted here so you could get a thumb from me.

Sorry! I certainly wasn't intending to be insulting - just thought it was funny that Tzeentch's icon looked like a chicken! I also know how it feels to have put a lot of work into something (and try four months over fourteen hours) and have the first comment come across as unconstructive criticism. In this case it certainly wasn't meant that way. If it means anything, I had the intention that if you replied to my "witty" remark, my next response would have been to compliment you on your work. If it weren't for the fact that I'm a lazy-arse SoB, I'd use them myself (I too am not entirely satisfied with the cultists' Staves of Drooping).

So anyway - no offence or criticism meant. And very good work!

Now that I had a quick power nap I feel better. Sorry I was cranky...
Kinda ironic that I talk about not thanking me and yet I don't get say "you are welcome". Sorry for coming across as harsh. God I feel like an idiot now. (Note to self don't go to forums when cranky and tired).

Not to compete but I worked with White Wolf making the WoW RPG, for 3 years. I did not get proper credit. Luke instead had a weird way of thanking the "grunts" that did all the research for the game. Now it is all up on WoW Wiki copy and pasted. My friends are amazed I stil write articles for FFG and make contributions such as these banners for free. I like to think my life will turn around at some point with all this "intern" work. I work at a grocery store and do computer animation for free lance on my spare time. I live with my parents still because I can't make a stable pay to pay for car, house, and Full Sail University. My friends tell me I do it to myself by giving stuff away for free.

Full Sail did teach me how to survive harsh criticism, guess I am slouching on that or too tired to care.

BTW Brian you do have to have a good printer for this to come out right. The banners are not as small as you think. That being said I will upload the larger ones. If I still have the file. Since it was a personal project I think I merge layers and saved over.

I did this with my figures. It worked like a charm. Still see some revert but another pass and they're good to go once more.

The deeper question being "Which came first Tzeentch or the chicken?"

Questionable humor aside,thanks for the banners.Well done.

I think they look great, but because they are so small I would go with a more basic motif for the Lord of Change logo.

Well the reason the lord of change banner has a warp like effect is to represent the banner constantly changing. True if it were another god I wouldnt have done that. Any way, my group that I play with likes it. They like the each has a different feel. Nurgle looks like flesh with a rusted border. Slannash appears to be gleaming and has a jeweled border. Tzeentch banner doesnt matter since it would constantly be warping to fit the needs of the troops situation or in the case of cultist the look required to sway the minds of the on lookers. Khorne has that emphasis on the gold and red and the skulls and his face.

Again, I did this for myself and my group. I am glad you guys like them. But unless its for a commission, I don't think I will be changing them. If you have an idea for a banner you would like send my a PM or email Dhanold@comcast.net I will create it and purposely shrink the pixel ratio then we can talk price if you want me to change the ratio to normal.

Sorry, but it takes a ton of time to do just one of these banners. Most of the time goes into the planing and finding reference material, so sending me reference by which to go off of reduces the price.

Thanks for all the comments glad you enjoy them. I am actually wishing I had saved the files before converting them so that I could blow them up and turn them into posters.

BTW I really like how Khorne's is which is ironic cuz I am Slaanesh myself.
So for all you heretics of Khorne I whisper "blood for the blood god, skulls for the skull throne[/size]"
