Default Magic Lore Fonts for DIY magic cards

I'm trying to create my own magic cards, but I want to replicate the formatting of the spells in the rulebooks and army books, as my OCD will scream at me otherwise.

I have found the heading font of Caslon Antique. The description and the rule effects look like its Times New Roman in Itallics, but its not the same, as the " looks different.

Does anyone have any idea of the specific fonts used for it?

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

Doing a quick comparison with my Battle Magic deck, looks like Times New Roman for the body text; but a neutral quotation mark (U+0022) for inches rather than the proper double prime (U+2033).

Looks about right thanks for the help! Just need to find out what the descriptive text is, there are serifs on the w and v which ain't quite right, will scroll through the fonts a bit more. I didn't even realise that the symbols used in the insert symbol bit varied, so will check those too.

Have found it! For future reference if anyone search on google (as I did many times):

Titles and headings: Caslon Antique
Itallic description: Bell MT in itallics (looks completely different in itallics)
Main body/ non itallics text: New Times Roman with U+0022 speech marks for inches

Thanks again Dave!!
