    Default [WITHDRAWN] June 2011 Challenge Entry - The Three Day Revolution

    Okay, after much deliberation I've settled on an idea. The Three Day Revolution was so named because the small state of the Keinas was only able to achieve independence from the Sphere Federation for a grand total of three days. On Day 1 an armed force of the "Keinas Reclaimation Front (KRF)", consisting of rebels and traitorous elements of the Keinas State Military, siezed control of the capital of New Gesailles and dispatched troops to sieze the main industry and infrastructures of Keinas. The "Sphere Federation Armed Forces (SFAF)" were already aware of the KRF's plans and these rebel forces were destroyed before reaching their targets. Day 2 the SFAF encircled the capital and R3 Infiltrater teams marked the locations of key KRF positions. Day 3 the 42nd Airborne Company and squads of the 4th RSA-Knights Company and the R3 Infilitrators stormed the city, quickly overunning the enemy and forcing a desperate last stand at Replendence Plaza and the Sphere Governmental Building.

    My map is going to be of the that last stand at the plaza, no pics as of yet because I'm still planning but should have some soon. Don't know whether I'm going to do a top-down or bird's eye view but I'm leaning towards the latter.

    Okay, finally now I have some time I've made some progress on this map.

    Above is the rough layout of what the plaza will look like, now I'm going to add buildings and details, I'm also going to be adding a second smaller map in the top left corner showing a second battle between elements of the RSA-Knights/R3 Infiltrators and the KRF in the tunnels beneath the Sphere Governmental Building.

    Okay, I'm withdrawing again. Someone quit at work and I've picked up all of their shifts, while this is great for me as a casual employee it does mean I haven't had time to work on this map. Also I couldn't really make anything good that depicted a battle and still felt like a map and not just be a picture.

    Well that stinks... I've marked it as "Withdrawn", if anything changes let one of us know and we can change the title again.

    Thanks SteelGeneral, that actually was a question I had, if you withdraw can you re-enter with a different map or the old withdrawn one?

    You can re-enter with a different map (or restart with your original entry), I did so in a challenge many moons ago.
