Failed maps

So I wanted to make a map for an upcoming WWII game and I played around, ended up not liking the map and finishing it anyway. I posted it Google+ and have received some pretty nice comments for a map I considered crappy. I thought I would post it over here since I have been posting a good deal of writing but little mapping. Life has gotten away from me recently, I am hoping to get it back under control soon but we will have to wait and see.

Above is the black and white version that I made from the color version below. I prefer the b&w version, finny how you have to color something to create the b&w version, eh?


  1. I'd say your failed maps look better than my most successful ones. Hope you can get the real life stuff back under control -- I know how that is and I sympathize.

  2. I, also, have had my mapping time get out from under me, and have filled my snippets of time by making random tables (which I also enjoy). But your map is hardly "failed": it's clear, readable, and usable. I certainly wouldn't mind piloting some miniatures around it in an infantry fight.

    1. Thanks, I just find it a little depressing that I have so little time lately. I am glad you enjoyed the map, and thanks for the feedback.
