great job on the profile cards.
It seems we had a very similar idea, as I created my own a while back using the Command Deck graphics as well for the card frame.
I did add all the special rules though and the design is slightly different. I also went ahead and organized the cards for A4 and Letter print out. I've attached a screenshot of one page to this post. Thought that was agood idea at that time, as the cut marks made it very easy to use my paper cutter to cut the cards.
The disadvantage obviously being that, when adding new profiles, I'll always have to print unnecessary cards as well.
So probably should have used your approach.
I did not think of using landscap format for the cards, which is a very good idea indeed. It makes the stat lines a lot less crammed.
Anyways - keep up the good job!
Cheers

Nice cards ! :)

I'm curious, how do you manage the layout od each card ? Photoshop ?

Because I use a database with automated layout. Less control but faster creation of new cards...

Hi,

I have been using a somewhat tedious process.
I used Paint.Net to crop the images.
Then I used MS Publisher to arrange and layout the cards.
Certainly not the most efficient way to do this, but I am not a professional layouter, so I used the tools that were available to me with little training :)
Cheers

Just did a bit of searching on the internet.
Seems it is also possible to use a data source in Publisher as well.
Should give that a try.
Won't work for all of the models, but a large chunk of them should be fine.

On the other hand - I can just use your profile cards :-)
Cheers

Updated the cards with the latest experimental rules (firedrake, mehmed and so on)

Corrected a few things, including the new pictures for the units instead of the 3d renders (famous commanders, new infantry...)

As usual, let me know if you spot something amiss ! :)

Updated the card files with the latest phase 2 addition (still waiting for my book, I took the stats from FFOR)

- I also changed a few pictures here and there

- I then realized that the unit cost in points was incorrectly limited to 127 :o , so I corrected that and all the cards that seemed wrong because of that limitation (this problem may not exists in previous versions).

As usual, let me know if something is amiss

Thanks Ljevid ! :)

Someone pointed that I forgot the "old units" changes from phase 2 (I should get my phase 2 book later this day). I just rechecked all the phase 2 units in FFOR :

- does vampires lost their "rare" special rule ?

- does the immortal longreach also lost "rare" ?

- is the leopard heavy or support ?

- is the Ronin Mv 6" instead of 4" previously ?

- Attack ATV's chem grenade R(F) is 9" instead of 6" previously ?

I also updated the pdfs with all the little changes I spotted here and there with FFOR, but I will do another check with my own book asap :)

In case you didn't get your book, and/or to avoid confusion from anyone reading this, here are the answers:
Abrusio wrote:- does vampires lost their "rare" special rule ?

Nope, still Rare.
- does the immortal longreach also lost "rare" ?

Nope, still Rare.
- is the leopard heavy or support ?

The Leopard and Panther are both Heavy choices.
- is the Ronin Mv 6" instead of 4" previously ?

Nope, still Mv 4", as are the Samurai.
- Attack ATV's chem grenade R(F) is 9" instead of 6" previously ?

Yes, R(f) is 9", R(c) is 6".

Hope that helps!

Updated the unit cards with my Reconquest Phase 2 book, so it should be good.

Some other minor corrections here and there...

As always, let me know if something is wrong ! :)
