Repost of my December 09 entry.
The map shows the annual bloodwinter raids of the Orc to honour the god of ice and snow, Krulbag. The Orcs capture the towns (if they are not defeated), kill ritually the inhabitants and create pyramids of the skulls which they shower with cold water until they have an object of skulls covered by ice. This totem stands until the sun of spring melts the water.
The dates of the raids are - of course - written with blood!
The map was created in PS CS 4, using Ramah's brushes, which work quite well :D.
For the banners I use vector files and imported them to the .psd file.
Please read the finished map forum sticky post and add the information requested....in case you get feature map selection, it makes things easier!
Sorry! Was in some hurry when I posted the map, hadn't thought about it.
