AoS Shorts: Your Essential Guide to Age of Sigmar

Age of Sigmar Gaming Aids

Here at AoS Shorts we want your games of Age of Sigmar to go as smoothly and effectively as possible.  While we remain big proponents of the humble cheat sheet (one page of all your rules and warscrolls in one place),  we have also decided to make some Age of Sigmar gaming aids that cover the artefacts, spell lores, traits and command abilities.  No need to flick pages in your book when the card is right there.

While there are many fan made cards of the traits out there already, including in MTG or Hearthstone styles, former graphic designer Andy Long felt he could put his fandom of Warhammer Age of Sigmar and his skills to good use.  So Andy set about making them look as close as he could to honor the spirit of each battletome and the amazing Games Workshop graphic designers and artists who make them.

How to print your Age of Sigmar Cards

Andy has done a stellar job on these cards and they truly are a fabulous piece of design.  The cards are MTG sized and can be printed in sheets, or double-sided on card stock.  The singles files come with an appropriately themed backing image.  All the cards have been updated to incorporate the FAQs, errata and designer commentary.

I highly recommend printing onto a card (playing cards tend to be printed on 300gsm (paper thickness)) using a local printer service.  Also, avoid gloss finish as it reflects light which can make them hard to read.  If you’re printing using your work printer or something akin to that make sure you print at full size, don’t ‘fit to page’.

Once printed, if you want to cut them yourself, follow the printers crop marks and cut to those. Here is a handy video showing you how to cut to crop marks if you’ve not done so before. Once cut, each card should be 63 x 88 mm in size (2.5 by 3.5 inches) which matches Magic The Gathering cards.
