Cartographers Choice - Mapmakers Personal Favorites

I encourage everyone to post whatever maps they feel to be their personal best. This thread is intended to be a resource for everyone. Not every map will be of tournament quality and not every map will follow the strict rules of the BoV. Just a simple listing of your personal favorite maps that you designed.

It would be appreciated if post were limited to just maps and commentary was left on the posters personal map thread (so don't forget to include a link). This thread is likely going to become image intensive so it would be prudent to limit your selections to a maximum of 5 maps. Thank you.

I also recommend to you that rather than create additional post you simply update your original post and I will try to keep a record of the entered cartographer's names here with links to their post for easy searching.

Cartographers listed alphabetically. Last update 01/18/2013

AliasQTip's Personal Favorites


The Complex Battlefield


Hidden in a crag, on the side of a mountain, a secret complex of buildings lies shrouded in mystery. Virtually undetectable from the air due to the thick growth of evergreen trees and nearly inaccessible because of its location, this top secret base is staying classified – for now.

Required Sets: Rise of the Valkyrie Master Set, Fortress of the Archkyrie, and Road to the Forgotten Forest.
Footprint: 36" x 25"

File contains TWO scenarios and 20 Custom Weapon Cards!



Secret Bases Battlefield


Long ago, the bridge over the wide and perilous Dracon River was once guarded by a pair of twin subterranean bases on either side. However, its security is now threatened by enemy occupation.

Required Sets: Rise of the Valkyrie Master Set, Road to the Forgotten Forrest, and Fortress of the Archkyrie.
Footprint: 32" x 18"



Quantum Entaglement Battlefield


Test Site: V51-3 / Location: Classified
During his earliest attempts to harness the power of the Wellsprings and bring heroes to Valhalla from across time, Vydar created the Phase-Space Device. Unfortunately this early experiment failed. Due to a peculiar and unexpected warping of the time-space continuum, the device was split; creating an echo of the device in a parallel dimension. With the device apparently lost, the project was abandoned and the area, forever in a state of temporal flux, was deemed extremely hazardous.

Required Sets: Rise of the Valkyrie Master Set
Footprint: 39" x 30"

Re: Cartographers Choice - Mapmakers Personal Favorites

Well, I am hardly a major cartographer, but I do enjoy making maps. Here is my favorite thus far. It takes a central King of the Hill game to a whole new level. Always fun; always unexpected.



Flooded Temple II (revised)

The Temple of Shaajad is thought to house an amulet of great power buried amidst its mammoth foundational pillars--all that remains of the ancient temple today.

I recommend using two strong glyphs or the Wound Glyph and a Brandar to represent my Glyph of Mimicry.

Glyph of Mimicry: This glyph performs exactly like one other chosen glyph on the map field. However, if both this glyph and the other chosen glyph are occupied, both glyphs are negated and neither has any effect (until one is vacated again).

My goal was to create a map that actually uses the Castle set to have real height, while still be a relatively compact map and fair for melee units. Not easy, but I think this map fills the role. (I also did several redesigns to increase the use of double-hex units.)

I've seen Dwarves beat an Airborne Elite army and Orcs beat a Blasts/Glad army. The map has always been active and volatile. The Glyph of Mimicry adds unique field choices and helps a lower army have an increased chance of dislodging the upper army. The ladders and multiple paths to the top have allowed Dwarves or Gladiators enough options to dislodge AE or KMA up on top. All in all, good times!

A few interesting features:

* The start zones are simply all the grass areas on the lowest level.
* All castle heights have an adjacent water space below for a quick exit.
* I love the little spider caves by the glyphs.
* Exiting out of either side of your start zone can be effective. One side looks more obvious, but both are critical to map control, I've found.

Enjoy!

My other favorite is this map, modded from Velenne's Feylund Fountain. I love lava, I love hard choices, so I loved making this.



Volcarren Fountain II

It's nice to have some range on this map, but I've seen a TKN army go nuts on this map and crush a ranged army. The small size helps melee to compete. Fun stuff.

New 4/16/10: Underground Iceways



Many good battles on this map (1BftU, 1 TT, 1 FotA)

Another run at a BftU, TT, FotA map, this time much more spread out:

Icy Cavern 2 - see here for more info about it's features.
