40k Scale Newspaper and Propagada Poster Tutorial

I have found an easy way to make Propaganda Posters and Newspaper for use on your 40k bases or scenery.
First cut off the foil from the top of a wine bottle
Then flatten it out and prime it with a light colored primer.
I used Tamiya
Then basecoat it with a few coats of Dheneb Stone and draw a grid with the boxes being the size of the poster or newspaper
Then paint or use a micro pen to draw your images.
Here the top six are painted with Chaos Black and Scorched Brown
The bottom six are done with a micron pen.
Once finished spray a layer of Matte Varnish
Once dry use scissors and cut out the pages and give them a slight ruffle and you now have great basing and scenery material

awesome idea you came up with. Any chances that you have some pics with them being used in it?

That's a good idea, I have made posters in the past but I used paper, these look like they work quite a bit better.
