Hollandspiele: making the counters for Scheldt Campaign.
August 23, 2016 1 Comment
Tom Russell made the counters for The Scheldt Campaign. He describes his process on the Hollandspiele blog:
$1100 for an outside artist to do counters? (Not for this game, for an unnamed magazine game.) I’m in the wrong line of work, obviously! Perhaps I should design games for the counters, not the other way round, since remuneration for the design part comes cheaper.
I guess it’s like in the movie business: they’ll spend $115 million working on the CGI so the heroine’s hair floats convincingly in zero-gee, and the writer get $43.29 and a box of doughnuts.
