Hello DeviantArt Community!

I am new here, my name is Tobias (or Fhizban my nick) and I am a
hobbyist boardgame designer from central europe.

1. What kind of project are we talking about?

Gods & Minions is a card based tactical wargame, so
one game represents one battle. You and your opponent each represent
generals who command their troops. The troops are displayed using cards.
Compared to a full wargame (like Warhammer), Gods & Minions is much
lighter on the rules and compared to a customizable card game (like
Legend of the five Rings), Gods & Minions focus is 100% on the battles
(instead of kingdom building, diplomacy or intrigue).

2. What are the games unique features?

* Full-fledged and affordable tabletop wargaming system without expensive miniatures
* Manaless resource system without staple cards that clutter your deck
* No artificial rarities you get exactly the cards and amount of copies you want
* Lightweight wargame rules prevent slow gameplay without being over simplified
* Unique rules core that does not lend its main mechanics from the big CCG ancestors
* All rules and cards will be available for download. for free. always.
* You pay only if you want a printed copy (physical product) of your own via TGC.
* No dice: Gods & Minions does not require any additonal component or luck factor!
* No Grid & No Rulers: An innovative movement system renders rulers obsolete.
* No shallow story: Dive into a background world full of history and folklore.

3. What kind of artist am I looking for?

Semi-Pro Artists for the card images who work at reasonable rates. I finance
the whole project out of my own pocket, so the fees have to be as mild
as possible while I am requesting decent quality artwork (a tough aim, i know).
This is a job someone would do out of passion, not because he wants to get rich.

Right now Im searching for an artist who likes to paint
fantasy units (represented by one warrior each) to be used as card art. Single
warrior on each card, with no or little background scenery.

JOB OF THE WEEK: WILD ELVES
We need someone who can paint Wood Elves with a savage/animalic touch
to them. As well as Elf/Animal hybrid warriors and a few woodland related
beasts. We need a total of 20 card images and would offer this job "as one package".

4. Finally, is there already something to see?

Yep there is. The website is up and running, content is added on a daily basis.
Please note that despite working on- and off this project for more than a year,
I re-launched the whole idea at january 1st 2013.

If you are interested, you can contact me directly via eMail. Please check out
the project website first and take the effort to read at least some paragraphs
to decide if this project is for you. Then you are welcome to drop me a line:

Thank you so much and sorry for this super-long post!

reconsidered again later.

Hey. Take a look at my gallery.

I work a lot with concept work, and colored comes easy. My prices are fair and simple sketches can cost as low as 10 dollars. Let me know.

Here are some examples:
