    Post A Different kind of Map (Warhammer's Mighty Empire)

    So, I have been playing some Warhammer Fantasy Battles lately, and myself and three friends are starting a Warhammer campaign soon. The folks at Games Workshop puts out a product to assist in Campaigns called Might Empires, a set of paintable, interchangeable 3d map tiles.

    http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...Id=prod1050157

    To aid in my running of this campaign, I grabbed the images of the tiles of GW Website:

    http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/co...300017&start=3

    and created a symbol catalog for CC3 as seen below:

    Any questions on CC3? Post them with CC3 in the Subject Line!

    Seems pretty cool - not unlike the the map builder in Fantasy Wars that I used for a challenge map a few months ago.

    That looks very cool. Are all those symbols available on the GW site? They'd work really well in maptool I'm guessing.

    Yes, the images were 'stolen' from the Site. The tiles themselves are approximately 2 inches in diamter (that's each tile), so strung out in a single line would be 48X2 or 8 Feet long (approximatey).

    The Symbols were then converted by myself into CC3 symbols for use as a mapmaker for Campaign battles.

    I'd really like to use this in Maptools and CC3. Any chance of you making the CC3 or the image files available for download?

    Yeah, no coastal tiles or river branch tiles in the default set.

    I was just about to pick up a set of these to do the same thing, and to break the routine battles with my friends. Nice

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    Oh, we are still gonna use the tiles, gotta start painting them soon, but I thought a nice printable copy to plan out and view online would be nice too.
