Re: Cartographer's Toolbox - Creating Competitive Heroscape

Yay, that's great news.

You know what I'd love to see? A series in which you and dok team up to analyze maps. Every episode you'd pick a different one — maybe old-school BoV one time, a recent one another, cycling through ones featuring different terrain types, etc. — and then analyze it together. Comment on the footprint, the spaces and zones, the pathing, lines of sight, the way in which various parts of it relate or don't to each other, what armies you'd want to draft on it, which ones you wouldn't, etc.

Just hearing you two 'think out loud' together while dissecting a map would be a treat, and a learning experience.

Don't mean to limit this to you and dok. I just seized on him because of his own blog series on map-making, and his prolific contributions to the boards. But seeing you team up with any esteemed cartographer or cartographic reviewer would be a treat.

Re: Cartographer's Toolbox - Creating Competitive Heroscape

A) This is awesome
2) I'm going to make guys from my group read this since I haven't been able to explain what's wrong with the maps they build.
Finally) Your maps are gorgeous and I'm going to play on some tomorrow.
Lastly) I wish I had made it to the Heroscape party years earlier so I could have collected all the terrain.

Yay, some generous soul just this very morning gave postive rep to this old post above.

Which means.... there is popular demand!

Seriously, you should consider it. We'd love it. Go twist dok/1Mmirg/dignan/nyys/GameBear/Panopticon's arm to join you.

Re: Cartographer's Toolbox - Creating Competitive Heroscape

Did you ever make more of these articles? Was a wonderful read!

If you could also provide a link to your blog I imagine I would enjoy reading it.
@Typhon2222 do you have a link to this "dok" person's blog on map making?
