    Post Rhodec battle maps

    It has been awhile since i posted I been playing gurps alot using fantasy grounds I thought I'd just share some of the maps I made.
    I used some daz models and exported in png then added the ground cover using photoshop and layer masks. it is quick and dirty but the results are fairly nice.

    I've been wanting to get those DAZ models for years and mess around with them. This looks great.

    really easy to come up with original look by mix and match elements to come up with new maps. quickness is key for me as GM. really enhances the game to have them look good but it is a blessing to be able to make them in time for the following game session.

    Those look really great for quick maps. Really makes it tempting to look into DAZ myself. I've been fiddling around with Vue recently but I really should go through all the tutorials. I just like going for it though

    vue is a great tool too, used max to render the png of those maps. the models are daz but i didn't use daz to render them. I'm using vue as i type this now to make the next map for my campaign.
    geek at play studios is a fantastic site to learn vue.

    These look amazing. Do those models come with Daz or do you have to buy them. For 'quick and dirty' they look really good.

    I do not have daz studio, I extract the object files and use them in vue or 3dmax. but I believe daz only comes with a victoria (female) limited model. since the software is free they nickle and dime you for the models. However the models they offer are top notch worth the price even if you do not use daz or poser.

    thinking on posting map packs for people to use as they need. free.
