The Card Decks

Here are the Cards for At the Ends of Empire as you can see there are three Roman armies to reflect the Empire's options for dealing with opponents. All armies have the same number of cards but not all the same type of cards so we will see Persian arrows blocking out the sun and Celtic chariot warriors racing to death or glory.  I'm still thinking about British, Germanic and Hunnic Cards but they will follow in due course and benefit from the lessons of play tests.

Here are some of the Card images.


After some indecision I went with an Irish image for the Irish/Pict 'away' deck .  This was because the warrior seems to have limed his hair which is very suggestive of a very old Celtic practice that interests me- and it is a colourful image. I will probably do a separate Pict 'at home' deck as well.  Anyhow I'm pleased with them and I hope you like them too.
