Nordguard: The Card Game

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been working on original artwork for the upcoming Nordguard Card Game.

The game itself has been developed by Tempe O’Kun and Nic Wald, and Jeremia Heupel of ThinkTank Games directed play-testing. They’ve been tweaking and play-testing for over a year now. It’s slated to be released this summer, and will be available from Sofawolf Press.

The card game will feature 50+ pieces of new original artwork we’ve done, plus some artwork from Across Thin Ice, and Nordguard concept art. In total, each deck has 130 cards, plus comes with custom Nordguard dice. The game will come in two editions, standard ($12) and collectors ($25).

There will also be additional artwork from the talented Chromamancer!

You can find more information about the game itself on! The site will continue to be updated as we get closer to the summer and the game’s release.

Here’s a few of the new images I painted for the game:

A lot of the painting for the cards was done on LiveStream. I edited/sped-up a couple saved sessions for anyone interested in the process! You can find more on my LiveStream Channel, but here’s one:

I’ll be LiveStreaming pretty regularly over the next couple of weeks as I work on the preview for the second Nordguard book (the title of which will be announced soon!)

You can follow @screwbald or @nordguard on Twitter to be updated whenever I start LiveStreaming!
