View Full Version : bfg cards?

02-12-2008, 11:24 AM
OK, played a few games with the rules i spoke of earlier and it plays much better, far more balanced,
but another thing popped up, wouldn't it be a good idea to use cards for the ships, much like a lot of other games where you mark damage on the individual card, thus eliminating the lengthy process of filling out fleet lists and the need to continually print them.
is/ was there any produced by a third party or is there a blank card generator,thingy? to save me starting from scratch on cs2?
although at the moment my time is limited, would others use this idea if i managed to make some?(no guarantee before Xmas)

thats a sound idea dude, but unfortunatley i havent seen anything like it.. making them should be fun though :)

i was going to put a picture of each ship on top then the table underneath, then either laminate them or just put them in card protectors

card protectors sounds like a good idea, should have loads of those knocking about, i know i still do so a use for them once more :) does def beat having soo many scraps of paper around which is how it usually ends up with me

i got literally hundreds of em, as we use them in all the other games as well, for ease of use i was then going to put them in a 9 pocket folder so you can see the quick and keeps it tidy, had a go at it last night and i think actually word is the way to go,

cheers mate, it does look a bit big but its playing card size to fit in a card protector, i think even as is itl be ok.
if you want i can send you it in a publisher doc so you can edit it with your pics and ships

Sweet idea. But wouldn't it be better to replace the photo with the art for each ship from the rulebook?

Unless they're unique for each ship you have.

i think i prefer the photo.. makes each ship easier to ifnd lol

ok, i have now re arranged a bit and done most of the chaos cruisers (all the ones we use) and the idolator
so if anyone wants them just say, they now fir better on an a4 sheet with correct spacing.
just starting the imperials now,
