Unit cards

PostWed Aug 19, 2015 9:32 am

Hi,

I remember seeing some unit cards before, but with a lack of updates for the new units (for reconquest 1) and also there was at some point a rumor about official unit cards. I was tired of waiting for the official ones and so I decided to spend some time on this :)

I don't know if there is still an interest about this but I guess I can share it anyway now that it is done.

Disclaimer 1 : Of course I don't claim anything as my own except putting all this together : everything is owned by Hawk Wargames. I used the graphic background from the command cards because I find it nice and blends unit cards nicely with it.

Disclaimer 2 : I also have the version with the special text for all units but as I don't know if it is an issue or not, I won't release it here for the moment...

As for the unit cards : some pictures of them (as I said this is the version with special text that I keep for myself for now)

And there are the links to download the PDFs. Each card is now on its own PDF page, so if one wants to print some cards on A4 paper, it should be possible to print as much as 8 on them on each paper sheet (haven't tested this yet let me know if it works !). One card back for the faction is at the end of each file.

PHR unit Cards

Resistance unit Cards

Scourge unit Cards

Shaltari unit Cards

UCM unit Cards

Fauna unit Cards


Landscape version

Resistance

PHR

Scourge

Shaltari

UCM

Fauna

Let me know if you find any error !

On a related note I also did some battlegroups roster cards, where it is possible to write with a water based pen the squads on the sleeves and flip the card when the battlegroup is activated...

PHR battlegroup cards

UCM battlegroup cards

Shaltari battlegroup cards

Scourge battlegroup cards

Resistance battlegroup cards

Tar Palantir compiled those battlegroup cards so that there are 8 of them on each page, and 8 back side on the following page, so it is possible to print in double sided mode if your printer accepts thick paper.

Shaltari double sided friendly https://www.dropbox.com/s/yypwoxhz6lpener/Battlegroup%20cards%20Shaltari.pdf?dl=0


F.A.Q

- Q: how can I print multiple "back card" on a single A4 sheet ?

- A: Look at the following configuration in Acrobat Reader :

Image

- Q: Where are the unit special text ? Would it be possible to integrate it on the cards ?

- A: I asked HWG for permission to release the cards, and they agreed. But they also wanted to keep the cards and FFOR on a equal footing (meaning no advantage on one on the other). So, as long as FFOR does not have the units special text, the cards won't have it.
I have a personal version of the cards with all the special text on it, so it can be done (even if it's sometimes a little tricky to put everything, and it requires some rewriting of such special text, like the longbow...). So if you really need it, it can be done with a PDF editor.

Thank you !

I remember reading that Buhallin could have easily inserted the special rules in FFOR outputs but he has chosen not to do it because he thought it could be problematic. That's why I released the "no special rules" version first. I am going to message Simon to see if it is ok to release them.

So, for the special rules text, Simon answered. He wants to keep it like the FFOR outputs, so no special text on the cards, sorry guys !

These are fantastic. I'm adding the special text onto them myself using http://www.pdfescape.com and then will print them out.
