This may or may not be the place on this forum to do this, but I recently got Gimp, and was wondering if anyone here had links to good tutorials for Gimp?

Responding to a card series thread with a question about art tutorials?
That is very confusing.

You should go look in the Card Art section or in the Art section of the Off Topic Forum.

It was finished enough for its purpose.
Enough Ambushers were made that I have a good idea how to design it correctly and Wedge really did not have much hope.

I will edit the opening post to clear that up.

Most of these are still in the crucibles if you want to vote on them.

Pardon the Nerco and double post.

Land Wyrm and Graviton Captain are in the Creature Forge. Ghorapines is also in the Creature Forge sporting a modification of Ambush.

How can they be fine tuned?

Land Wyrm and Graviton Captain are in the Creature Forge. Ghorapines is also in the Creature Forge sporting a modification of Ambush.

How can they be fine tuned?
Graviton Captain looks balanced (at least within + or - 1 range), since it has less initial damage and is slower than FFQ for greater damage in the long run. It could get a -1 cost, but otherwise it seems thematically solid.
Land Wyrm also seems balanced. I don't think it needs fine tuning.

I feel they're okay as they currently are - it seems that they both pair Ambush with other simple (but notable) concepts (Swarming and Burrow respectively), while most of the other cards seemed more situational (Lieutenant, Alligator), lacked a notable concept (Birds, Alligator), or were good ideas but ignored (Striker, Decoy).

While not actually part of the series, Ghorapines is also somewhat simple and introduces more Swarm strategies than Ambush cards, since Ghorapines isn't limited to other creatures.
Just my 2  :electrum .

I get the feeling that this series is complete (at least for the 1st version of Ambush), but if others want to discuss more opportunities w/Ambush it couldn't hurt. Bloodlust and similar mechanics could also be refined and developed here.

It appears balanced with its current stats and ability. If you want to modify it to count previous attacks this turn instead of creatures in play then it can be added to the series. If you do change it you might want to use the Bloodthirst variant found in Ghorapines (creature forge). Then again you might want to create a third generation of the Ambush ability. The important thing is it counts the previous attacks/wounds that turn.
