How I spent my rainy day...

So, here's how the individual characters will look. Standard, and wounded versions (which will be on the flip side of the counter).

Made larger than needed, but I may also use the artwork for stand up "SJG Cardboard Heroes" style figures, just have to draw backsides then.

On a posting roll...

Here's the latest update of counters, I think I've settled on what I like...

If you're wondering about the colour backgrounds, one of my thoughts (that will tie in with the rules) is the dark colour marks heroes, the mid range colour standard troops, and the very light tint is for peasants, non-combatants and sword fodder.

Colour Test

Just a quick colour test to see how I should approach printing the counters. I have to say, being a graphic designer/illustrator is a pretty big boon to game design!

Hand Cramp!

I've been drawing a lot lately, at work and at home working on this board game concept — hence the hand cramp. Thought I'd take a break to show an update, so here's a sneak peek at some more counters. I have a bad habit of wanting every character to look different, but I know that's just not feasible. So when I can, I draw them without weapons or facial hair (I have a moustache and beard accessory pack!).
