Figured it would be better to make a new thread for these.

So I uploaded templates for all of the soldier types here:
https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B5OeKs4RNZaEY3lPam12...

They are in .gif format, so should be transparent if you open them with a photo-editing, art type software. I used GIMP to make everything.

Anything else to add to the cards? I added all the combat modifiers for weapons etc..

Didn't do one for the Captain, Apprentice or Wizards yet. The Captain and Wizard stats can change, and new abilities added, so might be tough to do those. Had the idea of leaving those spaces blank and you can write on the card sleeve or something.. any ideas?

If you leave the stats blank players can have it both ways. They can leave the cells blank to write on sleeves as you suggest or fill them in with the photo editing software. With the second option in mind, what font are you using?

I will try to finish my Warband this weekend and post some pictures of the cards.

Ok, I'll do that.

I did a card back for them as well. Same as the Bestiary cards to keep it simple and just changed the title to "Frostgrave Warband"
I'll upload it here in a second

The font is called "Knights Quest"

when I made my cards, I added little heart-shaped checkboxes to protocol the life points with a dry-erase marker... Turned out useful.

Thought about doing that, but will use heart tokens to keep track of health. Have a bunch sitting around.

Me too! It all started with painting the Warband then got pulled into painting treasure tokens and creatures... I just downloaded the cards you made and going to start with the photo sessions. Any chance you will get to the Wizard and Apprentice soon?

hehe, yeah I will try to get to them soon. I'm still making new terrain and painting the rest of my undead hordes.
Got 3 zombies, 4 ghouls, 10 skeletons, 1 zombie troll, 1 banshee, 2 spectres. Ghouls and skeletons getting there, banshee and zombie troll painted up nicely.. the zombies not yet. Did paint 2 giant worms, 3 ice spiders, and knight, templar, war hound, and tracker as well.
...
but my next batch of minis comes this week sometime I believe adding 26 figures I think it was.. more undead and the rest of my warband and enough for another warband as well.

I will think how to best do the wizard cards though. Apprentice is easy, I'll do that one here in a moment.

EDIT*
(Posted the apprentice)

You could make it easy on yourself and just do the Wizard the same as the rest.

I do not have your fabrication talents but am still all in on terrain. I just picked up an old Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy set "Gardens of Morr" from a Bartertown seller and Pegasus Hobbies has some nice pieces, including this: Wizards Tower

Nice, probably expensive to ship over here.. generally is.
I've had to make all my terrain from scratch. Did some new ones recently, a ship and fairly big round tower. I'll put some pics up in my other thread later.

Yeah, for the wizards maybe I should just make it easy, put the type of wizard and just leave the stats and items blank for people to fill in.

You could put type or leave space for the player to fill that part in if you want to limit the number of cards you need to make to one!

Either way, this is all great. I decided to paint different thug models so my new projection is to schedule a Lord of Light Warband picture day for this weekend.

Sorry never got around to making the last few cards.

But

Just got my copy of the new book and will have to add a few new cards. Hopefully will get the wizard and captain in there as well.
