Fonts for Battle Master

Postby Lowery_79 » Friday October 30th, 2020 4:26am

[This topic was moved from Board index ‹ HeroQuest Rooms ‹ General HeroQuest Discussion on 11/4/20.]

Hello All,

I've seen some threads on here about Battle Master before so I thought I might get some help here. Does anyone know what fonts are used for Battle Masters? I'm wanting to make a box skin or wrap for the two expatiations. As I have put together all the pieces to make both sets but have no box. So I thought I would try and make a replica of them. I'm starting with making the stickers to put on the back of the units (North american icon ones) So it's at least playable with my nephew. Any help with this would be great.

Have you already checked HeroScribe for the font?

Connemara Old Style Pro Bold
The Epic Game of Fantasy Battles

Caxton Bold (note: you have to skrink it vertically 80% approssimatively to match the same on the box)
From the Makers of Hero Quest

I didn't find the correct font for the title (it is customized with the flags on the capital letters I guess) but "Moyenage 15" is the closest I found.
I just checked the box artwork, if you post some scan from the rulebook, or cards I can check if there are some different fonts for them.

Thank you both for your reply, I didn't think the fonts on HeroScrib would get me where I needed. Because I downloaded all of it a while ago for my HQ stuff, and now their in my font list. As I went through them they didn't look right but I will try lestodante suggestion.

Thanks again

For those of you who maybe watching this thread I wanted to give you a look at my interpretation of the stickers for the back of the units from both expatiation's.

That being said I wanted to give a special thanks to lestodante for helping me get the right fonts. To help this project move forward. On to making the other stickers and a box skin for both.

As I said these stickers are my interpretation of the ones made for The Battle Masters Game. In no way is this meant to infringe on Milton Bradly's 1992 Copy Write or Owner ship of these original items or ideas.

So in messing with these stickers this morning I realized I would have to size them down a bit to it on the back of the unit bases but it’s a quick fix. And I ll change the layout a bit so I can print them on sticky labels to save money on the projec. I ll try and do the flags the same way. So all that will go to the printer are the 2 box skins. When this project gets done would someone mind letting me know how the finished items should be for a free download for people and would someone be up for hosting a spot for this download as I have no idea about domain things, apart from the name go daddy but that’s the fourthest my knowledge goes on that. But it would be nice to have this all up for people.

This is something you can do using services like Dropbox, Google Drive, MediaFire, etc. Simply create an account, add the files and then there is generally an option to get a link for sharing the file with others. Just copy that link and put it on this board or in your signature. Look at my signature and you will see links to everything I've shared. One thing I will warn you about: if you have images that are intended to be printed out, do not post them to image sharing sites like Imgur as they typically reduce the resolution to 72 dpi which looks like garbage when printed out.

shouldn't this be moved to the battlemasters section? Great game. I own two complete (U.S. and U.K. versions) and both of the expansions (Chaos Warband and Imperial Lords). I have had at least half a dozen other incomplete boxes that I converted into Warhammer

Hello Again,

I am working on the stickers for the Impartial Lord Expiation but I don't know what one of the flags are for (marked with a question mark on the image).
