After reading the posts written by Jason Cawley (JasonC), which I think is really interesting, and by SteelVictory, where he submits a nice St.Marie du Mont map, I have retaken my map making work.

I have done a pair of exercises about Panzer map making. The first one is an example of a typical Ukrainian rural village that runs across a path and is surrounded by wheat fields. The second is a "woodsland" map which depicts a crossroads that must be defended and where Panzer are sure to be ambushed.





They are one column and one row larger than a standard half Panzer geo-board and they should be printed on a A-3. They are perfect for company-sized forces engaging in a short amount of turns.

This is great - we just need about 98 more.

Keep them coming...

Don't worry, I'll post more. Some at this size and others at geo-board size (but divided in two parts for ease of printing)

These maps look great! If it's ok with you, I'd like to include them as an extension for the VASSAL module.

Were you using Hexdraw?
I've been pounding a wall trying to get the woods looking good in Illustrator, can't get the clearings and open spaces right.


Yes, I use hexdraw. The biggest time consuming effort is creating the tiles, but once done it's just a matter of imagination.

Yes, one A3 equals two A4, but it is better to print ii directly on a A3 because of print margins. You would lose part of the maps if printed on two A4s

Now that Exp3 is out, I'm working in the Parker Crossroads map. The map is very similar to the second example posted above, but I think it is better to have a more historical one. The prototype of terrain types is done, now it is time to embelish the thing. And this time the map will come with a scenario too.
