I ordered the game and an extra human team and I am interested in using transfer numbers.

I was wondering if these will fit if anyone knows

Thanks for the help!

I can't answer about the size.
I will say that I had a devil of a time trying to use dry transfers that I had that would fit. So much so that I abandoned the idea.

The surface area for the numbers is really tiny.
Waterslide would work much better IMO but I'm admittedly not the best modeler.

I don't know the size of those transfers, but the sheet of transfers that came with my Dreadball figs from Mantic has numbers of the following size. Ah wait, going down to the bottom of the description it looks like they may be just a bit too large unless you only make them single digit numbers.

They are all two digit numbers and the largest numbers are about 2.25mm tall by 3.5mm wide.

The number circle on the back of the human figs is about 4.25mm in diameter. The number circle on the back of the Orx are about 5mm in diameter. There is some variance depending on the race and team position.

Are the numbers that came with your figures black? I saw on their website that they offer numbers, but all I saw was black and I am looking for white numbers as well.

Thanks for your help!

Would any of these work?
They look close to the sizes Dethos quoted, basing off the quarter.
They also come in a bunch of different colors, including white.

They are indeed white, but I don't know if you get them with the stuff you can buy now. I think my transfers were only a part of the Kickstarter campaign. It looks like they are selling them though, although £1.50 GBP/$1.99 is pretty high for one small sheet of water slide transfers.


Funny enough they show them as being black on their website, but maybe that is just so that you can see them easier.

Thanks for the help Gokiburi and Delthos!

I found these: auction

And here is an example of them on a Dreadball team:

I also ordered some decals for team logos from armorcast:
