Copyright ingfringement... Sort of

Well, not as problematic as the title suggests. If you have seen my latest scenery projects, like the lowlife residential building or the monorail station, you may have noticed I have been using different signs, ads and posters. They mostly come from a web I was so dumb to forget, so sorry for the uncredited work, whoever put all those posters together! The fact is that I was running out of them, so I was needing some more if I'm to follow up with this kind of stuff. Being unable to trace that web back again (besides, that would have only given me more of the same) I thought I could make some of my own.

Due to RealLifetm responsibilities, I am in no condition of designing brand new signs, I needed something quick. Soo... the easiest solution. I just googled 'sci-fi ads' and begun to copy-paste anything that caught my eye. No real criteria here, just colourful images that I thought may work. A friend provided me a few he apparently used for his Infinity games, so I just put them all together:


Weeeell, it's... eclectic, you may say. There are some real ads, some funny compositions and a few novels and stuff. It may provide enough resources for a while.

Anyway, I also thought I was in need of some more RT-specific imagery. As I had my 'Keep calm' posters, I simply added some shots from the RT book and other in the same line to what I had:


You can see I included some not 40K related pics. I just liked them. It's funny the stuff you find when looking for something totally different.

Here you have both of them, please be served if you find any of them interesting. If you print them in A4 size or so, they may work fine (but be sure of testing it before you print it at maximum resolution!).

I hope anyone find them useful; you'll see some of them in the (near?) future on some of my scenery...

  1. That is super helpful, Suber! I am now very eager to see some WH40K scenery with the Penguin Books logo.
    You posters remind me of the space brothel at the Realm of JiNNai:

    1. Haha, thank you! The Penguin Books was a must :D
      I saw JiNNai's stuff the other day, it's inspirational, it's funny how different people can come to such close solutions, hehe.

  2. Nice! I gave a similar collection, and these are going alongside it, printed at a suitable size for 15 mm. Great choices.

    1. Thanks! Glad you find them useful! I guess I'll be saving any interesting image I find in the future to make another take like these...

  3. I take it you cut them out in the size above for use in terrain pieces? That's really cool!

    1. Yup, if you print those in A4 size, they should fit in for any 28-32 mm setting. I hope I'll be using them anytime soon!
