8 point could be a little on the large side - I use 4-5 point white 
Letraset rub-down markings, these are 2mm high.

One of the problems with waterslide decals (I assume this is the 
format that the decals will come in) is that they like to sit on a 
relatively smooth surface. Not many of the CMD FT ships have largeish 
areas that are smooth enough to take decals successfully. Yes, I 
realise that you can use setting solutions / varnish over them 
etc, but eventually they'll probably fall off - especially with the 
amount of handling a wargames miniature gets.

I don't want to pour cold water on the idea - I'd certainly buy some 
if they were available - just pointing out the potential pitfalls.
