Just realized since this is strictly for personal use, I can just cut/crop the bajillion images that are online of other ww2 board game counters  :crazy2:

DIY / Counter art
« Last post by acctingman on August 04, 2017, 10:44:40 AM »
So, I'm wanting to add additional units to my Conflict of Heroes gaming.

I have zero artistic talent and I can't afford an artist to do what it is I'm looking for. This, of course, is only for personal use. I've gotten a few images from Google, but I was just wondering is there are sites that have good samples of various infantry poses?

Thanks

If you grab Inkscape look for Pelle Nilssons iboardgame extension for making counters and cards.

I will, thanks!

What do you already have for layout software?

What's your current level of knowledge / comfort with those apps?

It's easy for someone to flippantly say "Adobe InDesign - there is no equal!" until you realize is a very expensive program and a decent learning curve.

I have no software, except NanDeck

I've used GIMP a few times, that's the extent of my software usage

This is something I'd like to do on the cheap  :2funny:

After reading some of the older posts in this sub forum I think I'm going to have to stick to something that is free, like NanDeck. There is a kind soul over on BGG that has been nice enough to help me out.

It works well for what I want to do, but my main issue is finding google images for infantry and guns. There are TONS of images for tanks, armored cars, etc, but infantry images are tough to find. I LOVE the ones that Conflict of Heroes has, but its art and I don't want to "copy" their stuff  :-[
