Sorry for the lack of updates. I was a fool to think that I would get much work done during the holiday season. But I did have a few blocks of time here and there to make progress.
I did a redesign of the back of the stat cards to include a brief summary of the unit’s talents. This set my progress back a bit, but in the long run I think it will be much better for game play. The game will still require a detailed description of each talent and spell, but at least in the new format you can get the idea of how the talent works right from the unit card (ideally after some experience the long descriptions won’t really be needed much in game).
For those interested here is a link to the completed card set for the Woodwold Boskers.
Great job making the most of your cards by using the backs.
The only thing I might suggest is that although your flavor text is nice, on Gerron Brom (or whatever...) and Serrah, you have so much text that it is overlapping on the text block.
You may need to re-size that, or possibly remove a little fluff to make it fit on there a little better. If you were to re-size it, it would take away from the uniformity of the cards, because even a SLIGHT change in text size could distract from the cards themselves.
Maybe it is just me, but that REALLY stood out to me.
Aside from that, I think it is looking VERY nice!
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
Thanks to everyone that offered me feedback, and thanks for your patience.
After many delays… Into the Fray is ready for play testing. I’ll start a new thread to recruit a few people (anyone who participated here will get the first crack at it but there is probably room for a few new people).

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
