Looks good, I like the heraldry. Your maps make me want to dust off the old wargames again.
After a short vacation I'm back at it. This is the next iteration of the Dragon map. Some additional cities and castles from the designer. I also played around a fair amount with the background textures. The publisher, who doubles as a game developer, wanted less fuzziness, and didnt like the "happy" green colour of the last background. Hopefully this one is dark enough for him. I don want to go too dark, as its already starting to mess with the hex grid, which I think I now need to lighten. The Woods dont look right either. Gotta play with that some more too.
Dangit! The background doesnt look at all like that in photoshop. I hate when that happens.

I'm still working on the Dragon map. Here is version 10. Lots of little changes and a general lightening up of the look. The hex numbers were unreadable on the darker version.
How do you get those castles/buildings? Are they just free tiles or whatnot for CC3? Very cool that you are getting paid for it!
Here is the latest version of the Dragon map. Yes I did get the castles and cities off of CC3. The latest changes were to add in the "princedoms" (the red dashed lines and names) along with giving all cities and castles a shield to show who starts with what. I think this is pretty close now to what Dennis (the designer) wanted.
