    Default Roadside ambush

    This is a straight forward ambush setup I will be running in few weeks. I have seen this similar layout few years ago in some D&D product. I don't recall what it was, but it acted kind of a inspiration. Anyway this is my first attempt on battlemapping, so in few weeks I'll see how well or poorly it fits on running minis on it.

    Attached are versions with and without the grid

    EDIT: One new map added (the chasm) and I added all maps (with and without a grid) into this first message for convenience.

    Here is a new one. This time a bit higher on the hills. I really had hard times getting the elevation to this map and the dark areas are a bit too dark, but I think it's a good compromise.

    They look cracking, the depth you get on your maps is always fantastic so it's good to see it on a finer scale.

    Some of the textures and blending on the windy road are just amazing!

    Wow, this is really beautiful. Where did you get the tree textures? And the logs and so forth? Did you make them yourself?

    @furiousuk: thanks. Nice words are always...nice!

    @Luck: The trees i have got long time ago and all I did was some minor editing. All the other textures are taken from my own fotos or have been created with various tools.

    I think you're refering to "Keep on the Shadowfell", D&D adventure for 1-4th level ... very cool maps you've made pasis - as usual lovely textured

    Thanks. I really like what you've done here. The detail is fantastic. Already imported it to MapTool and drew in the VBL for my game next week. Getting ambushed by gnome enforcers.

    @Tilt: YES that was it. Quick seach via Google confirmed, you are right. It actually had hills on both sides of the road, but othervice I had remembered it pretty close.

    @tancolni: Glad you liked it (and especually when it goes into use) and here is a new similar setup, but now crossing a river.


    This time it took several days to create the new map as I really struggled with the river. Few times I was so close to give it up (especially when the river seemed to run uphill), but finally got it sorted up. Hope you like it. I have had my share of the rivers and won't be doing another one any time soon...

    nice .. and always good with a river encounter - pinning down people on one side or dividing the players on both sides
