Diapering, or you learn something new every day...

While doing research on heraldry so I could make better squad markings for my blood Angels successors, I came across the term "diapering," which would make for a rather interesting conversation...  The term refers to an embellishment to a colored portion of a heraldric device that is a shade of the same color.  Anyone who has seen any of the bretonnian knights that have won the golden daemon has seen this.  Basically, it allows for a more artsy pattern in the heraldry, without changing the meaning. Here is the site where  that had the info.

Incorporating stuff like this into your painting is something that will take your army from good to great. Just don't overdo it.
