Here is my project of redo the map of the wargame Crusader Rex (http://www.columbiagames.com/cgi-bin/query/cfg/zoom.cfg?product_id=3226)

this was the included map:

it is quite well done, but i disliked the use of too colorfull palette here.. so i tried to make a more "medieval" looking map:
it's still a WIP, but it's getting close too be finished..
i'm curious of what you think about it!

I like this very much. I can't think of anything that I'd change - great job, man.

Agreed, very appealing. The 3d text doesn't really flow though. Small thing though.

That's really nice. I like it better than the original one.

Really nice done and much better then the original in my opinion. Now I have yet another reason to buy that game (good looking map). I've had my eyes on it for a long time and it seems to be a lot of fun.

Fantastic work. You nailed that early 20th century look. It could have been torn out of a textbook from 1920!

Makes me want to play the game too. I even own it, but havent played it yet. There never seems to be enough time to play war-games these days. Instead I just seem to buy them and read the rules.

Should be Aleppo instead of "Allepo".
You may also push "Qaddas(h?)" away from the frame.

I would make the "ends" of the rivers more tapering.

Gorgeous. There was a guy did a similar reworking of, I think, Richard III, with a similar feel. But he also managed to revarnish some blocks in much more muted colours that just worked an absolute treat. Columbia should be learning from these.

Lovly map, would certainly look great if you give it a rugged look with some coffee and a bit of lighter work.
