Edit: Updated the individual card images to my improved text versions.
Updated the sheets to my improved text versions and better grid.
Better instructions for printing. Images of printed cards. Hero card sheets. Also, I made an Imgur album! http://imgur.com/a/z2L6s

Yesterday I bought a Chooloo Hero figure without cards, so I set out to print them myself yesterday. I could easily locate the hero card but not the Monster cards.

Thanks to Rick S for posting the Monster cards stats here: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/22653455#22653455,
and thanks to Teminus1066 on CoolMiniorNot forums for making his awesome Arcadia Quest Card Generator!!! http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?58495

They helped greatly when creating the monster cards! Here's my result:

Level 1: A Storm is coming




Level 2-3: The first city to fall




Level 4-5: Through the Clouds




Level 6: Complete devastation




For the simple ones, I took the blank monster cards they host on the Arcadia Quest website, cropped everything away except the background, used an android app to extract Chooloo's FULL hero art from the hero page for him, this took me over an hour, the image is here: http://arcadiaquest.com/img/fChooloo.jpg, I used another android app to put the Chooloo art on the cropped background of the blank Monster cards, and used the card generator with the stats and voila!

I also made some epic apocalypse art versions with art I found with the help of Google. (I link the sources on the bottom of this post)

I love the result!!!

I also made an easy to print file for both front and back full page double sided sheet.

Use Cardstock, or Linen Cover Stock for a more textured look and feel as described here: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/4578265#4578265 :-D

Front:

Back:


If you have issues with my page sheet, which you might, just make one with the individual images. I can't guarantee the full pages will print properly.

I am using Windows 10 photo apps, I recommend importing the pages to inkscape and exporting as 600 dpi. Export it as .jpg, or .png and rename it to .jpg

I used the photo app included with Win 10 to enhance the image 50% and darken 20%, and then used the photo printer with fit picture to frame selected. Also with it set to normal paper and best quality.

After printing one side I flipped the page and printed the other. Laminated it, (very important as this makes the cards much tougher to bend and feels much more like a card and less like paper) sliced it into cards, and used a 3mm corner cutter I got on Amazon to round the corners. I love the result! I also did this with the attached hero cards below.

Check these out, though I do think the images exaggerate how close to the real thing they look, I do think they're 80% - 90% as good as the real thing, but way cheaper!:


Playing the game with printed cards and matching Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter hero:

Glad you think so! I still haven't been able to actually print them yet due to running out of ink when test printing to try and line up the back and front exactly. But Tomorrow I shall have them!

I'll also laminate them to give them a bit of shine and be stiffer, so I'll post pics of that.
