    Default Wargame Map- Anzio (WiP)

    I have started work on another map for White Dog Games. This is a redesign of an existing map for a game on the Anzio landing in Italy, 1944. Here is a look at the original map. Its not bad...but they figured I could punch it up a notch.

    Here is the map I have been working on. The designer wanted to add a fair number of charts and things on the side. I have simply cut and pasted them on as placeholders for now, except for the Combat Resuts Table, which I have already redone.

    I used techniques learned from tutorials here to do the mountains and to do the coastlines, which I love.

    Hmmm...now that I am looking at the jpeg, I'm not loving the three toned mountains. Probably need to dump the middle mustardy coloured layer.

    I like the Hex border built into the edges. Really neat. The mountains are just right and the mustard color doesn't bother me, it sets it apart. But maybe a brown or purple color if you still need options.

    yeah, this looks cool. I'd ask to play a game if I saw the board on your coffee table.

    Sorry: I completely missed this!

    Tell you what- the next time I start in on a game map, I will try to create some tutorials as I go.
