Custom Warcry Cards for Worms of Paradise
I'm thrilled that the Worms of Paradise got such a positive reception on Instagram! My thoughts are still in the Worms' world of flesh horror so I tried my hand at something new, namely illustrating some custom fighter cards for them.
Something I enjoy in other hobbyist's work is seeing custom made equipment aside from the models themselves. Tears of Envy's accompanying materials for her Mordheim 2019 project is a great example. This is something I haven't tried before (I simply much prefer modelling to gaming) but I think Warcry presents a great opportunity to do something like this. Illustration is something I've done before outside of the context of hobby but I'm a little out of practice. Nontheless I broke out my tablet and had a shot!
The blank fighter card template produced by Waywalker Studios was invaluable for this project. They also produce a Runemark font that was useful, and identified the correct "official" typeface to use for the card text (RodchenkoCTT). I hope their hard work sparks off plenty of homebrew content for Warcry, a setting that already seems ideal for hobbyists to explore the weirder parts of the Age of Sigmar.
