Hey everybody!

So over the weekend I was playing with a gaming buddy and we were discussing other game systems that use cards for reference and rules (AT-43 for example). We were thinking about how it would be coolio if EA had the same thing, so I whipped out GIMP and Photoshop and did a little doodling. He likes them, I'm on the wall. ::)

I was thinking about doing a complete set of the Marines, Eldar, IG and Orks and giving them out for free at next year's Adepticon. This year I gave out dice and order markers to each of my opponents as a good will gesture and to help promote EA. Now I know there are some out there already, but I like fancy, so I thought I'd get a general consensus. What better than to ask the TacCom community. So what say you? Critique away. I'm I wasting my time or are there other alternatives (free and cool!) out there that I just haven't crossed paths?

Those are really nice, especially for intro games. I'd be proud to have a full set.

Thanks SG. Is there anything you'd change about them? Don't be shy.

Thanks AoC!

I thought about that, but then I also thought about how MANY chapters are out there and having different chapters represent. To be honest though, I'm trying my best not to use any images that might come directly from the "Great Satan" or anyone else that might blame me for copyright. So I'm sticking to stock and Wiki which has a commons clause that can be freely used.

Although it would be nice if i KNEW a few artists who wouldn't mind donating some time and art to the cause. ;D

I totally understand. If I was talented in any artistry then I'd be more than willing to help but I'm a turkey.

Well I look forwards to the final cards, it be great to use in demo games!

Well does that mean your coming down to Adepticon? ;D

Seriously though, if you guys think this would be worth pursuing, then maybe I'll post a set when I'm done as see what kind of responses I get.

Cheers!

Those looks very nice indeed!

Would you consider posting a GIMP blank template, so the rest of us can get in on the fun too? It would be cool to have a set with ones own actual minis in the pictures :)

Ohhh that is a great idea! But I have no idea how to fill in great pics! lol!

Did you plan on just making it in a PDF or were you think I printing them up on nice paper stuff?

Hi,
Your cards looks really good.

We use also some reference cards for promoting and playing EA. A friend found a card editor for trading card games.(Magic Set Editor 2) It's easy to create your own cards and style.
I have cards for SM, Titans, Minervans, Necrons etc. all with complete stats and pictures.

It's freeware. I got it from a friend, so I dont know where he found it. 40 MB is a little bit to much for mailing..
