Hello guys!

I'm working on a retheme project for fun and to improve my illustration portfolio with a sci-fi theme (which I love). So I decided to create this thread to gather maybe a few observations/tips/etc.

The original game is Giant Battle, very simple mechanics and just a few components, perfect for the job. I decided to go with a sci-fi theme, and instead of dwarfs vs orcs, the battle would be humans vs aliens.

Here are the characters for both factions and the lettering that will be later used for the logo. Next step will be the character counters and then the board.

Really fun look — good lighting on those characters. The type fits really well, too. Good luck!

Thank you for the feedback, guys!

I just did the markers for the human faction, take a look:



As you can see the HP count order was kept just like the original, but I also did an alternative version that gives more horizontal room:



The alien markers will be just like that, but using orange instead of blue.

Very cool!

My only suggestion would be to make the aliens less classically-humanoid. I'd love for them to seem like they couldn't easily be played by a guy in a suit.

I assume it's because englist isn't my first language; but i find the fonts used very bad. Especially the "Humans" logo in the fist post; i have to read it letter for letter. And the low letter human counters, particullary the "rk" combination on the marksman looks ugly, and the leading "B" of the 8rawler; i assume this is due to the mix of uppercase and lowercase letters with the same height, when it should be different.
