I've looked for stuff like that too with no luck.
It's either fantasy or modern, nothing in between.
I anyone can find me some decent musketeers, pikemen and cavalry in tricorn hats I'd bust out a map of the battle of Poltava that would blow your mind! :)

Have a look at this link.

There are quite a lot of real Napoleonic era maps there. At least they are a good inspiration.


Digitised maps from the National and University Library of Iceland.

English Link is in the top right corner.

All antique maps of Iceland (older than 1900) that are in the collections of the National and University Library of Iceland and the Central Bank of Iceland have been converted to a digital format and are accessible here. A short historical description in Icelandic and English is available for most of the maps. They are based on the book Kortasaga Ķslands (A history of cartography of Iceland) by Haraldur Siguršsson.
