Welcome to the Guardians CCG Page

This is a site dedicated to the Guardians collectible card game released by FPG in the mid '90s. This was a great game featuring beautiful artwork and a complex battle system. The game is now out of print and some cards are extremely difficult to find.

Here you will find alternate rules and game mods (including solo play), homebrew cards, and links to other Guardians sites.

C.J. Burke's .sig card #110: The Man Behind The Curtain

UPDATE:  I have a chosen an alternate version of the image with no watermark. I can't crop it without it being pixilated, so Toto is now in the picture...not sure if that's good or bad.

What's the name of Hildebrandts piece that was used for this card?

I believe it's called "Toto discovers Oz".

It's cool picture for this card, but what a pity it has watermark.

I thought that knowing the name I'd be able to find a copy without it, but no luck :(

Anyway, nice to see you back with new cards :)

Ok, so when I first read the name of the card, I had a picture of puppeteer in mind, or something similar.

Like this picture of Brom


but with someone above, and the curtain between.

This should explain what I'm writing about.

But if we may usa a metpahor, I'd say this picture is really nice for this card


(except the spaceship).

Although I have nothing against the picture that you pick up already.

One look at that and I knew that the painting was an Oz-inspired piece. "Toto discovers Oz"? I assume Toto got cropped out of the picture.

Art imitating art imitating art ... or something.

@SLP2000: I like the Brom images, but they aren't right for this card. It's part of C.J.'s Wizard of Oz-inspired ideas, so Wizard of Oz artwork remains true to the idea.

@CJ: check out the alternate post...Toto is included!

Ok, I didn't read Wizard of Oz, hence I don't recognize card connection to the book.

No problem. C.J. can confirm if there are any more...the previous card (Winged Monkeys) was one, and I believe Tin Elemental might be one also. Poppy Field (.sig card #17) is one as well.

Saw him now. My eye just didn't go there. The "wizard" is just so much more prominent, as is the green curtain.
