Hi all,

So, I've noticed online that some hero cards have different artwork. For example, Mablung seems to have two different versions of the same card, just different artwork.

The normal scroll on the left with his stats is gone and replaced with just white font. Also, his artwork is different (better in my opinion). He is pulling the hood of his cloak back.

Is the artwork I see online with the white stats and different pictures, user made or did FFG have different versions of the same card?

I know some versions are user made (lego Aragon and so forth)

Thanks!

I suspect what you're referring to is the alt-art hero cards that FFG release at Gencon each year. They sometimes pop up on eBay for silly money.

The Mablung must be a fan-made one as well.

The only official promo cards released to date are:

-alt art Aragorn (2014 Gen Con event)
-alt art Gimli (2015 Gen Con event)
-alt art Legolas (2015 fellowship event)
-alt art Boromir (2016 Gen Con event)
-alt art Faramir (2016 fellowship event)
-alt art Celeborn (2017 Gen Con event)

Yeah, that's an alt art promo. I'm not sure how, or where, it was released. FFG frequently releases alternate art promos of their LCG cards as tournament prizes or other promos.

The only ones I've actually got are from Conquest, but LotR ones do exist.

I'm pretty sure the one the OP is referring to is just a Hall of Beorn fan-made thing.

One of those cards: https://hallofbeorn.wordpress.com/2016/05/30/alternate-art-m...

The art is from the card Out of the Wild.
