Thread: Crusader Rex - New Map

  1. #1

    Default Crusader Rex - New Map

    Hello!
    Here is my project of redo the map of the wargame Crusader Rex

    this was the included map:



    it is quite well done, but i disliked the use of too colorfull palette here.. so i tried to make a more "medieval" looking map:
    it's still a WIP, but it's getting close too be finished..
    i'm curious of what you think about it!

    I like this very much. I can't think of anything that I'd change - great job, man.

    Agreed, very appealing. The 3d text doesn't really flow though. Small thing though.

    That's really nice. I like it better than the original one.

    Really nice done and much better then the original in my opinion. Now I have yet another reason to buy that game (good looking map). I've had my eyes on it for a long time and it seems to be a lot of fun.

    Fantastic work. You nailed that early 20th century look. It could have been torn out of a textbook from 1920!

    Makes me want to play the game too. I even own it, but havent played it yet. There never seems to be enough time to play war-games these days. Instead I just seem to buy them and read the rules.

    Should be Aleppo instead of "Allepo".
    You may also push "Qaddas(h?)" away from the frame.

    I would make the "ends" of the rivers more tapering.

    Gorgeous. There was a guy did a similar reworking of, I think, Richard III, with a similar feel. But he also managed to revarnish some blocks in much more muted colours that just worked an absolute treat. Columbia should be learning from these.
