No more waiting for hasbros answer. Made my own parchment now based on Odanan's stuff.

Two more cards have become available. Soon they're complete then I upload a zip with print-ready files in EU, US and parchment formats and then I post the link here.
Print-ready means high resolution, 300 DPI, additional bleed border 3mm around it, and png instead of jpg to avoid any artifacts.

Anderas, I like those ideas Marcus posted... many fun ideas in there, like the Treasure chest "mission."

Really glad I finally went through every page of this..

Anderas, if you want help converting this deck, with your new art, to HQ21 format, let me know. I was thinking of just doing it myself, but if you're looking to do it as well, I'm game.

Don't do it, for me it is just pressing a button after setting the parameter to "us", "eu" or "parchment" style.

By the way I received feedback from Hasbro today!

I asked them if I could publish my cards with their parchment style, if it was okay for them, and I wouldn't sell them and I post only the front, not the back.

This is the answer I got:

Hi Andreas,

Thank you very much for your quick reply.
Since your project has no commercial background, we have no concerns.
You are welcome to offer the cards for download.

Have fun and thank you for your support :)

So it is ok to post our cards with their parchment style. I don't know what she would have said if I wanted the back, too. So take care!

Ok, here the new download.

* EU style, EU size, print format
* EU style, zombicide size, print-format, with the colored card border in the way I use it.

* US style, US size, print format
* US style, Poker size, print format

* parchment style, poker size (that's the original size of the hasbro cards), print format

A single card back for all of them - Because I don't use the EU-style white border around the card, one single format for the back side is enough

"print format" means 300 dpi, png graphic, plus 3mm bleed border all around like the professional printers like it. If you want to print on your home printer, just cut that away.

Google drive download link

have fun!

There is just one card yet to come, which is "Scary Mary" of Marcus; depicting a female Orc.

You got a helpful response! I sent them a message quite a while back asking if it was ok to post homemade quests using their icons and it took two months for them to finally send me a link to Hasbro.com to find my answer. Not what I would call useful.

These are cool, and while I don't object to fat or buff sorcerers, the card back image looks "stretched out" to me. Did you just stretch it or modify the aspect ratio?

Another suggestion. Would it be possible to create some alternates that feature the "Remake style" icons on them with the parchment background?

Nice to see that all but six of the cards use new artwork (well another 6 use art from the previous evil wizard deck to be fair, but non-HQ art).

Otherwise great package and great to hear some support for free projects like this (it's not being sold, so its more like free-advertising for their product, similar to mods made for video games).

Edit: I see an error on parchment 578 Goblin Marauders ewp reinforcements.png (the text is overlapped with the image partially top and bottom)

Examples below (these are quick fixes as to what I'm talking about... note I didn't replace the monster icons with the remake ones yet)

I can't see the text overlap on the top. On the bottom, it's a calculated risk, there is just not enough space. This is why I post here, there is instant feedback and it's totally valuable! Thanks!

Wow where did you get those high resolution new symbols?

You're right I didn't even think about adding the new symbols. One reason would be the incredible work to invest just to get them in a good resolution.
But if you can make them available in this resolution (!) it would be easy!

Any symbol that is not available would be taken from the 90 version, like Ogres for example.

The evil wizard image, no I didn't squeeze it. But maybe the one from whom I got it, did? You have a sharp eye, I didn't see that. Now that you said that, I can't unsee it!

And yes you're right I didn't remake all images. Only the ones I thought disappointing. For example I love Sjeng's Log Trap.
