    Frostgrave Combat Cards


    I wish realize this project since a long time... I always wanted to create my own Citadel Combat Cards, the only problem is that I‘m never found a dood application to concretize this project.
    I don’t know if you have already played to Frostgrave? But it’s  frequent to look for the skills of the monsters in the rules book , the Monsters cards are a practical solution to save time during a game.

    If we disregard the painting of the miniatures, the shooting of the miniatures and the editing of cards … The most complicated thing in this project it’s to find the good Fonts. Fortunately, our dear Zhu had the good idea to share its knowledge in Font researche in a discussion on the Oldhammer Forum (Link)
    If you read this article you will understand that it’s question about the Fonts at the top of cards: Friz Quadrata Bold and Helvetica. If you want to try to reproduce these cards, I advise you to parametrize these Fonts in size 44 then to reduce their width to 55 %. So you will obtain a rather close result from  the original Combat Cards.
    Concerning the Font of the skills (titles and values), I did not find them. I managed to reconstitute them with the original Font. A little complicated but it is possible!

      1. Thank you Stuart, I think this project is in mind of many Old School painters/collectors.

    9. Salut Dread, en fait j'utilise Gimp. C'est du photoshop version fr et gratuit me semble t il. J'ai numérisé les quelques cartes originales et après c'est du travail classique de retouche :)
