For the most part, the artist for every BattleCard was denoted in the bottom left hand corner of the text side of the card by the artist's mark. In the case of five cards, the mark was a question mark ("?"). This was to facilitate a quest (Lord Magnoble's Quest), where the player had to find the five cards whose artist was identified by a question mark ("?"), rather than by name, and having found these cards, identify who the artist was.
The cards are:
|US Edition||UK Edition|
|US No.||US Name||UK No.||UK Name|
|100||Maglan Vinn||67||Maglan Vinn|
|131||Constantian Cutthroat||27||Constantian Cutthroat|
|139||The Trading Post||7||The Trading Post|
The style of the artwork is one clue to who the artist is in each instance. However, another direct clue supplied by the groupings in the US edition of BattleCards is more illuminating to those who do not easily recognise the artists by their work. For example:
- Card 75 in the US set (Wolfman), is the last of the "Barbarian Territories" cards, the rest of which are by Les Edwards. Hence, this card is likely to be by Les Edwards also.
- Card 100 (in the US set), (Maglan Vinn), is last of the "Zittonia" set, by Peter Andrew Jones;
- Card 131 in the US set, Constantian Cutthroat, is the first of the "Constantia" set, by Terry Oakes.
The UK published cards did not group the cards so conveniently, although the artwork is identical to the US versions in the above cases. This leaves the "Vangoria" and "The Trading Post" cards. Neither of these are in defined groupings. However, in the case of "The Trading Post" the fact that the artwork changed between the UK and US sets is indicative of the fact that the artist was Alan Craddock in the UK set, and Martin McKenna in the US set.
