ALL PLEASE BE AWARE THAT I HAVE BEEN ASKED NOT TO PUBLISH THESE ANYMORE

Finally we have the "official" dashboards for Zombicide - Black Plague here. These are obviously not 100% compatible with the original game of Zombicide which was identified very early on this year.

Historically we had a thread running on this site where we made our own dashboards, we got it right - nearly. It turns the size we believed it to be by visual representation was slightly off. This thread was here ( https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1375685/current-black-plagu... ).

The below picture shows three dashboards. The size we believed it to be, an original dashboard from Black Plague and a classic Zombicide character dashboard.



The real positive in the early work, is that my proportions where actually 100% spot on, the mistake was the final scale. When you scale down the original works I had done, the cards fit perfectly as shown by the Amy dashboard on the picture above - it is the same scale as the officially released Black Plague dashboard.

So the new dashboards with the correct scale have been placed in this dropbox link for you. Simple print them out at 100% scale ( 76mm x 88mm ).

<<< DROPBOX LINK WARNING >>>

Please ensure you are downloading the image, not just saving the JPG preview. The BMP to download is better quality.

<<< REMOVED >>>

Here is a picture of one of the dashboards from that link on the official Black Plague dashboard.

Note that I am also using card sleeves for the equipment deck.



Going forward now that I have got this 100% correct with scale, I will complete the missing cards for all classic Zombicide.

This thread will be updated until all Zombicide Classic cards are completed.

PLEASE USE THE DROPBOX LINK FOR THESE FILES NOT THIS THREAD

PLEASE REMEMBER TO DOWNLOAD THE IMAGE (.BMP) AND NOT USE THE DROPBOX PREVIEW

THE .BMP FILES ARE PERFECT TO PRINT AT 100% 76x88mm SIZE

...sorry for the bold and shouting, just want to keep this message in focus for everyone to ensure they get the best they can from these cards.

Re: [RELEASE] Zombicide Classic Dashboards for Black Plague
thank you so much for this...are you going to be doing dashboards for all the characters? If not would you be willing to post a .psd file?

**EDIT**
You know I just saw in the old thread a link to a .psd file so I can just manually change it from that.

Re: [RELEASE] Zombicide Classic Dashboards for Black Plague
Many thanks for the positive replies and the Geek Gold!

I have updated the second post to list what has been done so far. Makes it easier to see what is missing for you and me.

There will be many updates of this over the next few days, I have a lot of stuff ready to go and will start work on the missing ones tomorrow night and also update before the weekend.

My personal goal is to get all of these finished by Christmas.

This is completely achievable if I do a few each night which I will.

Re: [RELEASE] Zombicide Classic Dashboards for Black Plague
What do you guys think would be the best sort of paper to print these out on would be? Do you think card stock is best?

I second this question, I don't have a lot of experience printing board game bits and pieces.

Re: [RELEASE] Zombicide Classic Dashboards for Black Plague
So for printing I use...

KODAK - Ultra Premium Paper
High Gloss
280 g
250 microns

...obviously printing the cards at 100% size, I ensure that I select photo paper and the high quality option when I print.

If you put a few of these onto one sheet in a paint package you should be able to fit six on one A4 size depending on your need / want to do this.

The printer I use is an Epson.

The reason for the photo paper is it holds better quality and is more akin to thin card stock.

Re: [RELEASE] Zombicide Classic Dashboards for Black Plague
I thought Black Plague was going to use nothing but full sized equipment and spawn cards? Am I mistaken? Or did you print those cards yourself at full size?

Those cards are from Zombicide the original, Black Plaque is using the same size equipment cards.

All I did was print the Amy dashboard - the cards are from the original and the physical board is from Black Plaque.

Cards in the new game are the same scale.

The only thing we got wrong with the test dashboards was the scale of the character dashboard itself. For the ones in the link I provide in this thread they have been resized to the correct format.

What do you mean with full size? Spawn and equipment cards are same size than normal Zombicide.

Hmm... I could have sworn they said BP was using full 3x4 cards and not minis during the campaign. At first as a "By popular demand, no more mini cards!", but then it was like as part of the reasoning why they didn't want to make OZ dashcards as an add on, because the equipment cards would be too small also.
Really could have sworn I read/heard that!

He also wears orange and that's offical according to Guillotine Games!!!

So in most cases, I am not taking the art from the cards, I am using the better drawings that have been provided online by GG.

Here's Joshua in Orange...

http://zombicide.com/en/joshua.php

Just to add something else as well, the PSD I've made for this does far more then just convert classic Zombicide characters. We can also make proper Black Plague characters. Here is the Zombie Achille put into the Black Plague dashboard as an example. The same PSD does both styles ( plus anything else that maybe added ).

Yes!!!

50% of S3 and Angry Neighbors will be done, perhaps more - the cutting out work is completed. You'll have some of them ready here soon ( probably within 2 hours of this post ).

Update

The four chracters from Angry Neighbors are done...

...Jeff, Adam, Julien and Tiff are available from the dropbox now.

Update II

Bear, Jane, Louise and Laurie are now in the dropbox for the core set of Season 3.

Yay! Thank you, now I can play me with the new dashboards! I just got my Black Plague base game this morning, looking forward to a game next week when I'm off work.

Thank you for your hard work, it is appreciated!
