    I am looking around for the above for my Crom’s Anvil mercs and have found a few sites that sell designs I like, however, I can’t find any reference to the actual size of the transfers.

    Does anyone own any ’15mm’ transfers they can measure for circular shields and let me know the diameter at all please?

    I’ve had the same problem, and it’s cost me a few bob trying the ‘trial and error’ approach.

    I have the very lovely Little Big Men Studios Macedonian and Greek transfers in front of me.

    The Macedonian phalangite shield transfer “to fit Xyston Miniatures” comes in at 7.5mm diameter. That’s supposed to cover the whole of the shield of course.

    The hoplite shield transfers for Xyston are just 7mm, but they are not intended to cover the rim of the shield.

    I wasn’t buying the transfers for Xyston figures (long story). Someone told me recently that the Greeks, being an older Xyston range, are smaller figures, so it all becomes a bit of a lottery. I think it’s best to ask your transfer supplier.

    Yeah, I hate that too.

    ‘To fit XYZ’ tells me nothing, give me the damn dimensions of the transfer FFS.

    Ditto. I often wonder why manufacturers make it harder for some customers to use their products. Why limit your customer base? Making money is hard enough in a hobby based business without self inflicted limitations.
