Hello people,

Ok, what would be nice to see is ideas about what you would like to see made and sold by FFG on their web store that is not available as a single item.

If you would like multiple items done, please show them in order of priority, maybe someone at FFG will notice and take the most request item to the power that be for manufacturing

Many things have been mention on other thread like "plastic sleeve" for cards, card holder tray, carrying box... and so on.

Me personally, I would be interested with:

1. Plastic sleeves

2. Blank adventure and spell cards

3. Plastic cones counter (all three colours)

4. Card holder tray

5. Gold coins

6. Painted plastic figures

I'm sure you will think of more things to add so add your voice and ideas to this thead.

Some limited edition bronze figures like they made for WoW would be nice... or at least some bronze Toads.

Yes, that would be a good start, they look to me more detailed than the plastic but I could be wrong on that as I don't own any WOW game to compare. At least, it would be an easy way for FFG since they did it before for WOW to take the pulse of Talisman players and board gamer in general to see if there is a viable market for "game improvement accessories" and player's bragging right

BTW Talismanisland, thanks for the links to Strange Eons web site, I will have to test my hand at some cards soon

Plastic sleeves for sure.

Bronze figures sound interesting.

Pre-painted plastic figures could be cool.

 

My buddy plays WarHammer and he paints all his figures so I'm going to try my hand at painting the ones that came with the game this summer.  I found this pic from a guy who painted his and I think they look sweet!

CARD BLANKS!  Oh please, just Adventures, Spells and Objects would be bought up real quick.  But they should not be textured on the blank side.

Card holder trays for the standard or BI box sizes would be great too.

A graphic novel...that would be sweet. If someone could write a story and then FFG could turn it into a graphic novel..who could do that I wonder?

Yes it is a shamless plug but some of the new members may not have seen it yet.

This is the number one and really the ONLY thing that I am interested in: "Euro"-sized card sleeves with coloured backs!

Plastic counters. I have the BI version and revised edition update pack. Using those Black Industries counters is a pain....

I would pay well for packs of blank cards also!!!

Keep the backings exactly the same for adventure, dungeon, characters etc ...  just make them blank on the main side.

Heaven.

Thanks you all for your replies.

It looks like an expension with packs of euro-size card sleeves, packs of blank cards, big card trays, extra characters, and maybe a limited edition with new toads + small novel would please a lot of people here.

I'm a little bit surprise that no one mention sleeves for character cards?

As an old Talisman player, I know what can happen to character card to close drinks and food, some game are very long you know

Anyway fell free to give more ideas of what you would like to buy for Talisman from FFG.

Cheers

The bronze figures mention by talismanisland and jakelin are very interesting, I've tried to look for some pictures to have an idea of what those are but could'nt see them anywhere, are they pre-painted?

I'll try to look some more so I can make-up my mind as to if I would buy them.

Cheers

No, they were not painted, but made of bronze with an ink wash on them with a felt base.

As far as I can see the only difference between Rare and Limited was the colour of the felt and the ULTD stamp...

They were quite expensive as you can see in the pictures, but I'd spring for a set of Talisman ones.

Wow, thanks for the picture Talismanisland, they look awesome and I would join you on the purchase wagon even if they are that expensive.

Now I wonder if I would paint them or not, did you paint yours?

Cheers

I do not have a set of these, but I imagine you would not paint them as they seem to be for display or select gaming anyway. You would already have a set of plastic ones with your game for painting anyway.

The pic I posted the link to are the current plastic figures that were painted by the owner.  He said the figures are of such high quality that even a beginner can paint them and they will look cool.  I hope he is right because I'm going to give it a shot in a few weeks!
