Much better!
The blue/purple is still too glaring for my taste. And I'd try and widen the dark areas even more.
But that's all a matter of taste, of course.

I like it, including the icon choice...but was wondering if it would be a 2 square icon?

size and shape, more here, more here, more here, more here, more here

Stuff was said. It fits on a 2x1 base like a Giant Wolf.

Can just center it on a larger oval. The problem is it will overcrowd your text.

Yes. I think the card will retain a round symbol, to keep the layout intact.

For heroscribe I make a 2 square one with the same image in the middle.

Same goes for the mino, there will be a 1x1 and a 2x2 symbol in Heroscribe.

Cool that means with some few last additions to the basi picture, we're done with the monster cards then. |_P

Next step prepare the Heroscribe package and give it to Stratos so that ha can include it in his download.

Ideally, the Basilisk would have a 2x1 icon like the Giant Wolf and Frozen Horror Monster Cards. Maybe you could shrink down the oblong icon a bit. Another (better) tact would be to shorten the text. Try changing ". . .a Hero is changed into a stone statue . . ." > . . . a Hero is petrified . . .

The Minotaur should have a 1x2 base. An extra 2x2 base for larger Minotaur models is fine as an option, though.

Last version of the card. Petrified is a nice addition.
I consider this closed, save for serious errors.

You could say: The tools are ready, time to start working.

I understand your wish to wrap up. Hopefully someone will create an alternate Monster Card with a 1x2 icon like the one found on your map in the other thread. If not, it's no big thing to figure out they represent the same monster.
