Thread: New target cards

  1. #1

    Default New target cards

    Having benefited from the custom cards found in the file section, I thought I would have a go at creating some of my own. Here are some target cards I have been making in GIMP. I am trying to stick to the original WoW style as much as possible, respecting the scale whilst making them look authentic by consulting WW1 aerial photographs. These are still works in progress, I will post them in the files section when done. Any feedback is welcome.

    1) Airfield:

    2) U Boat and blank water (when flipped may reveal a U Boat or may not, for use in reconnaissance scenarios):

    3) Some target cards of places in Zeebrugge (seaplane base on the mole, channel entrance with coastal battery, canal/sea lock), the location of various actions which could make a variety of good scenarios:

    I just do a right click on the image and save to my computer.
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    Yep, same with mine, you can just save the images above and print off if you like. There are sized to be 300 DPI (dots per inch), so they should be the same size as a standard WoW card. I'll do a proper pdf for the files section when I've finished them all.

    Sure, why not? What aircraft would you like on the ground?

    Certainly a rep-worthy bit of work, there, Dom!

    Certainly true for you (well also me); the rest are stuffed in one of the hangers. no?

    "few" - a general indication of, a number less than "some", what an airfield would look like showing planes being repaired, painted, when the others are on missions.

    just a comment on how this game affects real life. Does any one get the thought that when they see a Red Kite (bird of prey) there first thought is "It's an Albatros (plane not bird)

    It's a monoplane so that's never occurred to me - my usual thought is 'that's a big bugger'
