My fellow Mordheimers,

Since the models for my warband did not arrived yet and to give a break from my "Greyskull Castle" terrain project, I've decided to make some game counters for my soon to be campaign, as I think that laying down my models on the table (and being a clumsy person like I am) may damage my painting...

After some time thinking on what could represent a "Stunned" or "Knocked Down" model on the table without confusing the players, I've come with the idea of representing them with Cards! Since the original Mordheim box came with an enigmatic Reaper card on it, I draw inspiration from this and make a whole set of Game Counters and Wound Markers based on the Marseille Tarot Deck and some Medieval Woodblock prints.

I've created 6 Game counters (Stunned, Knocked Down, Hidden, Under Spell Effects, Fleeing and Animosity) and 6 Wound Markers, along with the back of the cards. Here they are:

























Back of the cards if you want to print it and make a "deck o'counters":



Just save the images to your computer, print them (resize to your taste), glue on some cardboard and if you want weather them with some very diluted washes....

Hope you like them and enjoy using those counters as much as I enjoyed to make them!

Cheers,

Arcuballis

These are great! Good idea I hate having to roll players over when they are stunned (snapped halberd anyone?). I like the artwork it really captures the Mordheim Vibe.

Thanks for sharing

Excellent work, I'm gonna make a set for my warband, although I'm really tempted to make my own graphics to fit my Carnival...

This is a great idea! It has style (very dark ages kind of thing) and suits the purpose - and it keeps your miniatures intact!

Amazing artwork too. I was thinking of this kind of artwork when I thought of drawing my own miniature posters to stick on my terrain (but I failed miserably, as my drawing abilities are crap...).

Anyway, thanks a lot for the concept and the beautiful drawings.

Joao,

Unfortunatedly the beautiful drawings are not mine, the praise should be to some unknown artists from the XII to XV centuries which made the original ones! I have a very extensive collection of Medieval Woodcut drawings (I just love them!), and altough Ive made some changes, taking pieces from here and there and combining some, the drawings were taken from the original ones - this is the real thing, directly fromthe Dark Ages of mankind! Wink Also, they are royalty and copyright free, being public domain, so feel free to use...

Also, it was interesting that you mentioned the posters... Im currently working on them!!!!!!! Hehehe, great minds think alike! cheers

Just wait a little bit and hopefully by the end of this week I will post a full batch of around 30 posters to use in terrain projects, all of them with the same "look and feel"... You will have everything, from taverns and inns advertisements to execution lists and alchemy lab wall hangings... Stay tuned! Wink

Also, thanks everyone for the positive feedback!

Cheers,

Arcuballis

Wow! Terrific news, then. Very Happy

Since they're royalty free, where did you get them. I managed to get some medieval pictures and edited them accordingly to suit the posters I wanted, but I don't think they're royalty free...

Well, I'll be eagerly awaiting for those posters; I'm always curious to see what people come up with!

Grimscull, for me the best resize was of 45% of the original size... Small enough not to look too weid near the model, but big enough to see all the details....

Also, Ive made a PDF with all of those markers on single pages, which will make it easier for people to print and resize them "in a batch", but Im having some difficulties on how to put the PDF to be downloaded here... Any ideas?

And Joao, those pictures were taken from an old website which was offline now, I gathered this woodcuts collection around 8 years ago for a game I was developing at that time... But if you need something for your project, just tell me and I will try to find something suitable on my archieve...

Cheers,

Arcuballis
