Comments Wanted! : WIP Campaign Map
I am not certain I will even attempt to add the canals and just assume they exist, but are too small to show up at this scale. The same may apply to all the small rivers that are, in reality, present.
I do not know how I feel about the abrupt shift from a smooth grassland texture to the blurred stark color change for the mountains, but none of the textures I found for mountains could be reasonably used in this type of map.
I expect that I will treat the forests in a similar way that I did the mountains, and thus not add a texture, maybe that will help balance things out.
In the meantime, I have been writing down notes on my ipad for the actual campaign rules. These include national characteristics, character stats, the tactical rules modifications, the modifications to the campaign rules that I recently purchased, and modifications to a skirmish rule set that I am extracting and converting from Games Workshop's Mordheim rules. I am also working on modifying Kenzer & Co's, Hackmaster rules for detailed character backgrounds, so that each major character can have a common rules foundation.
My order of Army Painter spray cans and Quickshade arrived this week and I will need to go get a cheap lamp to use for my painting table. I plan on getting a few units painted in the next week or two (I have three extra days off due to holidays and a furlough day).
Unfortunately, my scooter still is not starting and while I am hoping it is merely the spark plug, with my abysmal luck, it will be something that is no longer made or will cost far more than I can afford. Even finding someone local who is willing to work on the scooter has been a problem.
