    Wip June 2011 Challenge Entry - The Battle of Drakenburg

    I'm going to show the attack of an enemy force on an independent merchant city.

    That's the base map I will use.

    Looks like a good start, looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

    Wip

    Army icons for the initial troop placement: infantry, cavalry, bowmen and flash throwers.

    Hey, I REALLY like those icons. How did you make those?

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    Looking really cool, Sap! Think you could afford to make the icons a little smaller and have more of them? It's probably just me but there seems to be a style clash between the icons and the map (graphic vs. arty). For me the usual military symbols might work better or if you wanted to use the round buttons, make them less glass and shiny and more distressed and old looking.

    I do like the icons, but I agree with Ravs that there is a bit of a still clash with the map.

    I will reduce the glass effect, but keep the symbols as they are. My idea was, that the map is a 'photography' (maybe the copied visual imprints of an spy falcon - it is a fantasy setting!) on which the buttons are placed.

    I really like the forests in your map, how do you make them?
