New FoB2 Cards - Card Front Example

Let's try this again - here's a sample of the leather binding card front:

What do you think?

New Version of FoB2 Cards

Having printed up a set of the FoB2 cards I previously previewed, I wanted to try something different.  I wasn't satisfied with the legibility or style of the earlier version.   I want the FoB2 cards to reflect the horse and musket period, similar to the way the marble/Alexander images and texture evoke a mood for the Pulse of Battle cards.

Hmmm.   I think of the cards almost as orders or order opportunities in the game.   Orders were written in an order book, probably at some point the result of referring to a map, from a map case - and a book and case would be:  leather bound! 

So - I tried a texture showing a leather binding style, and I like it!  I also changed the card back to make the title more visible, and more intense (red) representing the drama and tension of conflict.

So, here are a couple of samples:

Argh.   I still can't get multiple images to load.   I'll post the card front example in a new post.

I created a sample FoB2 card deck for my use, review, and editing process.   A couple of the cards are shown below.  If you have any comments, I'd be glad to hear them!

Stupid Blogger - can't get a post with more than one image.  I'll post another image in a post to follow.
