German card additions (Talisman 3rd Ed. conversions inter a)

Postby Ragnarök » Friday January 24th, 2020 9:56am

Hi there,
I created a couple of new cards by converting Talisman 3rd Edition cards, since both are GW games, both developed in the early 90ies, HQ even in the late 80ies and they pretty much share similiar art, so I decided to convert them into HQ cards. I'd be happy to share them with you, although they're in German language. Maybe you can use the art in order to make your own cards out of those. I'd be also glad, if my cards were hosted here in the download section for HQ players looking for cards in German. I also translated the Elf & Barbarian quest US only cards and added them. A side note to the orthography, I followed the old German spelling rules, which were valid until 1996, since the orignal HQ cards use the old spelling and I didn't want to have a mix of new and old spelling rules.

Please beware that the classic redbrown frame of the cards is enlarged by 3 mm on all four sides, because of the neccessary trim for professional printing. This is not neccessary for the ones with a white frame, so I have been told.

I'll start with new treasure cards and original US only translated ones:

Some new equipment cards. Special thanks to the ones who provided the art for some of the cards in the Archive Gallery of YE OLDE INN. ;)

German monster cards. These Ogre cards existed already in German, but I changed the names of the Ogre types in order to adjust them to the English originals. The previous, original tranlsations were terrible, since they used very much modern expressions like officer for the Ogre Champion and commander for the Ogre chieftain, which weren't fitting at all and not close enough to the English orignal. My translations are better than the ones of the guy, who was hired in the 90ies by GW in order to translate HQ Against the Ogre Hordes into German. This guy really did a terrible job. :roll:
I've also added the giant wolf of the Elf Quest, a Skaven warrior from Advanced Hero Quest & Warhammer Quest and a Beastman, since I've got some old Battle Master and Talisman/Warhammer Quest minis of Gors.

At last I finished the German Scroll cards as promised (mainly translations of the original US scrolls found in Kellar's Keep, Witch Lord, Elf & Barbarian Quest and also some new ones). Most likely the least interesting for non-German speakers, since the art is the same on all cards, except for the ruined scroll.

I've also created a new mercenary card: the archer, since I've got some of those old Battle Masters Imperial Archer minis, which fit into Hero Quest quite nicely. Usually the merc cards only show one man-at-arms, but I didn't want to cut out, because I like this old Battle Master rulebook picture as it is and it has got exactly the same design/style as original Hero Quest cards.

I was unsure, if I should add this one as card, but nevertheless it's an original Hero Quest artifact from the Master Edition Dark Company. The art of this one unfortunately is taken from somewhere else, but I think it's fitting.
