Painting an army and creating a fun list is just half of the fun of a tournament. I enjoy the "extras" like counters, vehicle wreck markers, nice objective markers and cool looking army lists. I decided to try something new for our army lists this year at Adepticon.
I had fun with some resume paper and spray ink stains. I picked up some resume parchment "copper" paper and used some dark red color for the copy text with a legible yet with the appearance of hand written. My thought is to make it look like it was written in blood. To get the blood effect I sprayed the red/brown ink along some of the sides and corners and smeared with newspaper. Make sure that you don't spray too much into the text; I had a couple mistakes where I got a little aggressive with the spray.
I'll be using the same technique with some variations for my team tournament army list (front and back for all four armies). For the warhammer team tournament list I'll use our kraken logo as a watermark and use some brown/black ink stains to look like dirt. This is the first round of lists for the team tournament drying. Once they're done I'll flip them over and spray over the newspapers on the other side!
I'm a big fan of this type of stuff, I think it adds a lot to the overall appearance of the army.
