For obvious reasons, I'll post this as finished, not a set of works in progress.

What? Of course it's a battle being depicted. Over six billion people died before the first frame, and the last frame shows entire worlds at stake in a contest of galactic proportions. Sounds like a battle to me. And it's got map content - in several places. Worlds of map content.

I think this already has my vote based on the concept alone!

I love the concept, but I am unconvinced that I can consider it a map. ;-)

I have to agree.

Hmmmm... okay, is this more mappy? Mind you I'm totally cool with anybody deeming this not a battle map - but for the sake of form I have to defend my entry :-). Concrete from textureking.com, btw.

Yes, a bit better. Put the "You're on Eliot" line between the last 2 pics, that would make the last image more clearly his battle plan.

That makes sense - thanks, bartmoss.
