Not quite sure what this is going to be named yet, but I'll be going for some sort of norse inspired empire spanning many islands and continents. The style will be an evolution of my Celinir (http://www.cartographersguild.com/album.php?albumid=191&attachmentid=28333) map.

wow.. that already looks great. Looking forward to seeing more! Love the colors.

Looks good. There's some clear directional ridging that looks like a bump map artifact on the NW side of a couple of the mountains that might be worth breaking up a little.
Love the colours - but at the moment they're not making me think Norse. The warm colour palette speaks more of a Mediterranean map to me. Love the broken coastline and islands - good stuff!

Thanks for the suggestions.
updated the colours and also layed out the extent of territories. Subject to Change.

The mountains are pretty much lost. Not sure how you envision them.

Thanks Ascension. I think I have them worked out now.

great job Rythal, love the colors and looking at it I get this story in my head about this big empire in time of war, with a huge fleet to protect all them bits and pieces. cheers, DJ
