Ian Miller tarock cards KS

I have had the great honour and pleasure of working with Ian Miller these past few months on a full set of 78 tarock (tarot) cards. We are still finalising a few things, but the deck is pretty much there so we thought it might be time to begin sharing some teaser images...

I don't know about you guys, but 'older' folks like me grew up on a diet of Ian Miller art back in the 70s/80s/90s, especially during the Age of Oldhammer (Warhammer Fantasy, WFRP, Rogue Trader, Fighting Fantasy) and his incredible artwork for the Tolkien Bestiary and many fantasy novels.

It will be a full tarock deck of 78 cards, suitable for playing any number of traditional tarot/tarock/trionfi games. The deck consists of:

22 Major Arcana (including The Fool)
14 Citadels (Coins)
14 Trees (Wands)
14 Fish (Cups)
14 Chaos (Swords)

We decided to go for a simple black border and an elegant font that would not in any way detract from the main focus of the cards, which of course is the rather spiffing artwork. We hope you like them - more teasers (and details on the forthcoming Kickstarter) coming soon!

Cheers

James

Yeah, Miller and Blanche are the two main stand-out influences artwise for me. Looking forward to these, I've seen a few previews on the FB page.

Good luck with the KS, not that I think you'll need it!

Thanks dude! Yeah, Miller and Blanche are two of the artists who really helped shape (warp?) my childhood back in the 80s. ;)

Two for the price of one on today's teaser... ;)

The World* and King of Fish.

(*Note: Many of you will recognise The World from Ian's time working with GW back in the 80s, gracing as it did the cover of the WFRP supplement Death on the Reik. For those who are wondering, Ian owns the rights to all the work he did for GW back then - it was very Wild West back in those days with regards to contracts, IP and so forth!)
