40k Shirts - Custom Mordian 7th Banner shirt!

A while back, the thoroughly talented Eye of Error made a regimental banner for me, and I've long thought I'd like to have a shirt with the banner on it. Recently, my buddy Dave bought a very cool Ad-Mech shirt for me from a fellow in the UK as well as a really cool Salamanders hoodie for himself, and I popped over to the site to see what other shirts they offer. Lo and behold, they also do custom printing, so I'd contacted them about the potential for turning the banner graphic into a shirt.


There were some limitations on what he could do as far as color gradients and font sizes, but he came back to me with several options that I was really pleased with! It's a bit of a simplification of the original banner, but I have to say I'm really happy with how it turned out. The metallic gold is a nice touch (Of course I'm going to have to be incredibly careful when washing it and hang dry it to keep it looking nice)!


While I was at it I ordered up a couple other shirts (after all, shipping across the pond is expensive, so it made sense to order more than just one shirt), including another Thousand Sons shirt (which reminds me, I need to take some pics of the other two KSons shirts I've purchased) and a shirt with an Adeptus Arbites symbol that I quite liked. If you're interested in checking out his shirts, I would heartily recommend them - the owner was a pleasure to work with, and the quality of the printing and the shirts themselves are both top notch! At the owner of the shop's request, I'm not doing a direct link but drop me an email if you're interested and I'll point you in the right direction. :)

Indeed - I'm well pleased with 'em!

Hey, I've been trying to comment on your blog recently, but it's apparently set up to REQUIRE I set up a google+ account (which I don't really care to do)? Not sure if that's intentional, but it's a little awkward for those of us who use vanilla blogger or disquss comment logins, etc. I've really dug your recent posts, I haven't been ignoring them! :)

@Colonel Scipio: Absolutely, he was a joy to work with and he has a number of awesome designs!

@Zab: You're probably right! I ended up removing the link to his store at his request to avoid the banhammer. If people are interested, drop me an email and I'll pass along the link!

O that looks fantastic mate. Would be awesome to see that being sported about a Con or some such.

Now if I could only come up with a design worth a damn....
