Hi,

I'm currently working on a huge expansion project for this game and was wondering if any one knows where I can get a decent sized/resolution foul icon from?

I was able to get the regeneration icon https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/blood-... and the others from FFGs youtube channel, but I can't find the foul icon anywhere... can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance.

I do not have it, but if I get what you are referring to it is quite a easy shape to replicate.

Something like that popped out with thirty seconds googling

Foul icon dude!!

That’s tackle and I’m trying to do a much more professional job than that. Foul is the fist and I’m looking for the actual icon information not naff look-a-likes.

What you may want to do is use FontForge to create a font with all the icons in it. I know some of them are inline with text and this will make things much easier for you.

If you really want to make a custom team, make another team that can be played with the base game. The expansions have way too many rules for my taste and I just prefer to usually just play the base game to keep away from those other rules. Fouling to me is an unnecessary complexity. But there is a lot of room just to add another team to the base game.

OK

Our tastes clearly differ.

Maybe I wasn't clear at the beginning of this post or maybe background information was needed to help illustrate my request.

I play a custom variation of Blood Bowl Team Manager with my brother in which we have set up a league, where all teams compete throughout a season (based similar to the NBA season format with cup competitions thrown in much like the premier league). As fun for us this has been, only having 12 teams to use has limited the scale of our vision.

It is now extremely unlikely that this game will ever be officially expanded upon, so being a graphic designer I have set out to create more teams, 12 in fact, doubling the size of the game.

Norsica Rampagers
Frozen Kossars
Borderland Brutes
Forked Tongues
Tlanxla Javelins
Greenfield Grasshuggers
Caledor Dragons
Bright Crusaders
Ashvale Valar
Dead Wood Howlers
Underworld Judges
Cursed Assassins

I'm currently on my sixth team, the Greenfield Grasshuggers, a halfling team with attributes similar to the lowdown rats, in the fact that they are relatively weak on star power. To offset this I would like them to have the ability to foul, but I need a foul symbol (the one that looks like a fist) at a resolution suitable for print (300dpi (effective)), as I will be getting my final cards professionally printed.

I know my request is likely to prove fruitless and I will have to settle for a naff scan of the original. But, as a hopeful shot in the dark, I was wondering if anyone out there in the vast internet universe had a friend of a friend that maybe knew some one who had access to the official artwork, an employee of fantasy flight games or one of the printers that they use for the finished product or even the graphic artist him or herself, that would be willing to supply me with a .jpg, .png, .psd similar to the https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/blood-... release.

Thanks again
Me

Yeah Horatio, the Foul Icon is without a doubt the hardest one to find in a decent resolution, Sadly i could find a great one. And the one i got of my scanner wasn't good enough. but i wish you luck, and if you find one please tell me about it!!

Would a proxy work for you?

Out of curiosity, I've just made a search for "fist icon" and it returned a lot of images to choose from: there are even a few tilted fists that look almost identical to the foul icon.

Will do sir!

I've also been meaning to ask where you got some of your images from? My base team are screenshots from Blood Bowl II but my star players are from various google and Pinterest searches.

I'm a little nervous about posting my cards because of this, I don't want to get in trouble for copyright as I've used other peoples artwork without permission. Am I fretting over nothing?

I'm a little worried about a proxy not matching everything else. I think I'm just going to go down the same route as Gabriel and try make a scan work.
