...well, not real LEGO bricks, but digital ones:





The reconstructed map is from Das Opiz'sche Kriegsspiel.
In the rulebook the designer suggests to use wooden cubes to depict elevations.

I was pretty curious how the map would look like in "3d" to get a better impression of it.
And after finding a scan of the original map in a forum, by a fortunate coincidence, I had the idea to use LEGOs to rebuild it.

But since I haven't this much LEGO bricks, the Digital Designer came in handy. :-)

I think the result is really impressive and even more so if we consider that the game is about 250 years old.

I was instandly reminded of Minecraft or HeroScape when I built this. :-)

Btw:
Green = Woods,
Red = Towns, Fortresses
Blue = Water
Brown = Ravines

Any comments welcome!

And now I want a million little hexagonal blocks in assorted colours (that also fit snugly together like Lego)...

This would be awesome! Some kind of LEGO Wargame Creation Kit...

Just out of curiosity, I rebuilt a small part of the Nuklear Winter '68 map, with small round tiles (offset square tiles would work too):



Looks "unusual" with round tiles...

Flat square tiles could function as counters:


(From an idea I had for Ogre once.)
