Any chance of finding the Wizards of Morcar or Against the Ogre Hoard?

It's not that easy with the other artworks, since I don't know of any bigger reproductions of the full artworks than what's provided on the artists' websites. I've sent emails to both Rick Grayson and Jim Talbot, but haven't heard back yet. I'd say chances are slim though that they would provide me with hi-res material. Les Edwards already told me that he can't do anything.

Now, it looks like for now I'll have to work with scans of the released materials, which would most likely be the boxes and manuals. Maybe one or another artwork might have appeared in a magazine like White Dwarf, but in either case I would need the help of you forumites here, finding that stuff and sending me scans (ideally always at least 600dpi, raw, with no filtering, sharpening or whatsoever applied).

StratosVX already provided me with perfect scans of Barbarian Quest as well as the US artworks of both Kellar's Keep and Return of the Witch Lord.

If anyone of you can scan their boxes and manuals of the other expansions, that'd be a great starting point.

EDIT: Just noticed that there are a couple of clean artworks (or at least with text in different places than on he box) in the Marvel Winter Special. Anybody able to scan these for me at 600dpi? For thin paper like magazines it helps to put a black sheet of cardboard or fabric behind the page to be scanned, to prevent the print from the backside shining through.

EDIT 2: Obviously the HeroQuest puzzles would provide another great way to get high-res version of the artworks to both "Ogre Hordes" and the "Adventure Design Kit". I guess those two are the difficult ones to get? Anybody has these AND the ability to scan the fronts of the boxes for me?

After a bit of silence I think I can "start" the "new" year with a bang. I present to you, the full-size artwork of the "Barbarian Quest Pack", courtesy of Mr. Rick Grayson himself:

As always, HERE you can download the uncompressed artwork. The print size is not nice and round though, with about 21 x 10 inches at ca. 288 dpi. Huge thanks to Rick Grayson for providing the artwork!

Thank you - both of you! This is a very nice contribution, to say the least |_P . I'm glad that the original artist was cooperative with us fans :).
