Deployment Trading Cards

Exciting news!


The Community Support Staff have come up with a fabulous way for all of our deployed members to celebrate their hard work!

The Deployment Card Launch.....errrmmm.....card is number 1 card in a series of 26 cards. Wheeeee! How many times can I say card?? CARDS!!!! Please note the glitter and confetti Recon Assassin added just for me!!

Seriously though, these cards are super fun and highly collectible!

Each series of 26 cards will start out with a generic card (Spoiler alert! Series 2 starts with our favourite little Guilty Spark, 581!)

PerniciousDuke arranged for these two initial cards for Series 1 and Series 2 to be be printed and they are being sent out to your Regiment Commanding Officers so you all can have a look.

PerniciousDuke is currently reaching out to members who are already deployed. We'll be working through things as fast as possible, but please understand that these do take time to make sure we get them just perfect for you.

What will you get? You'll get the files for a front and back, much like the Deployment Launch Card, and a recommendation of where to get them printed and instructions for doing so. It is 100% your choice whether you want a trading card created - you do not have to if you do not want to. You can also change your mind later if you originally say no, so don't think you only have that one opportunity. Understand, however, that we may not be able to get to your card for a little bit. You also do not have to get your card printed! That is completely your choice as well. And, you can choose a different vendor to get them printed at. We've only tried this one US vendor but there are definitely lots of others that will print trading cards.

For our International members, when you get your cards printed if you could share with us where you got them printed and how well it did, or didn't, work I'd be most appreciative! We'll keep a list of those things in Post #3 so that others have access to the information as well. If you are having trouble locating a printer please let me know and I'll reach out to other groups to find out who they use!

Post #3? Where the heck did Post #2 go? hehe

Post #2 is going to contain our spreadsheet of all of the cards so you can see who else you need to collect! We'll update Post #2 from time to time to keep it current.

Deployment Cards are for anyone who is deployed. It doesn't matter what Tier. The Art Department (Recon Assassin and Asgardianhammer) worked with PerniciousDuke in getting some super fun backgrounds for you to choose from so all you need is some great photos of you in your gear!

Watch your PM box for a message from us! It will be slow going at first but once we get caught up, these will be offered at the time of your Deployment.

Thanks to our wonderful Community Staff!!

I am very excited this project is coming to fruition. I have been working with our graphics guys, Asgardianhammer and Recon Assassin, for two full years on this project. Countless hours have already been spent between the three of us. It was a big undertaking for all of us considering it is something we will be creating hundreds and hundreds of cards for free to people all across the world. It will still be many more hours to actually create them, but I believe it is time well spent as a reward for the talented compassionate crafters we have in our community.

We want everyone to be happy with what we create, but when it is your turn to work with us please keep in mind we are not getting paid for this and we can't give special treatment to some and not others. The "doesn't hurt to ask" mentality doesn't really apply here because if every person asks for special treatment it will take us a lot longer to respond and create everyone's card.

If you folks need an extra hand in doing this please let me know. I work in graphic design quite a bit for my actual job, so lending a hand with something like this wouldn't be a big deal for me. Always happy to help this awesome community where I can.

Can I have a set for collection please? :)
Regiment COS are being sent the physical "Launch" card that Division Staff had printed, so it will be up to them to distribute the Launch card.

After that only the digital files will be sent out, so it will be up to each individual member who has a Deployment Trading Card made to decide If and How they want their cards printed, and how they want to give them or trade them out.
