HELP: In need of a 4 player map

Heroscape family,
I need your help. I'm sure they are around these forums (somewhere), but I am pressed for time (and it's tough with a 27 lb. 6 month old son).

Here's my dilemma:
I am hosting a game tomorrow at 2PM for three newcomers. They are quite excited, but I'm concerned about "overwhelming" them. The first impression is essential if I want to convert them into 'Scapers, so I'm a little more concerned for tomorrow's map than usual. Guess I'm suffering from cartographers block.

Anyway, I really need your help. Especially from you veterans.

We are playing on a 51 1/2" sq pub table.
I'm thinking a simple layout here, but in case you care to know:
I own 7 RotV master sets, 1 SotM master set, 3 TJ, 2 TT, 2 VW, 4 FotA, 2 RttFF, and one Marvel set.
I really want them to enjoy the game while easing their understanding of the game and rules. Any suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
TexHex

Re: HELP: In need of a 4 player map

I have a map I have played on and converted to VirtualScape but it is team based (2 teams of 2). Is that what you are looking for, or do you need a free for all map?

It uses a bunch of different terrain and looks really cool, really shows off Heroscape, but that means a lot of rules come into play (like road, etc.), and, like I said, its built for 2v2. Just reply if you are interested.

Re: HELP: In need of a 4 player map

I suggest Sealocked.

It doesn't use any special rules, and you can pretty much ignore roads. A great start map for 4 players.

And being on teams makes it easier to come up with strategies, when both players don't understand the rules well.

Re: HELP: In need of a 4 player map

Thanks Alpha,
These guys want a free for all (although I tried to encourage teams). Might use it in a future event though so please hook me up.
Thanks.

Re: HELP: In need of a 4 player map

Here you are. I haven't found motivation to download a PDF printer yet, so you instead get a large image I pieced together using print screen and photoshop and a picture of the map.

Spoiler Alert!


It uses 1 RotV, 1 SotM, 1 RttFF, 1 VW. I don't own a lot of terrain, so I made the most of what I had. It may not be 100% balanced, but its more than good enough for a casual game. And obviously you can easily edit it, add some more hills or elevation where you feel necessary.

Impressive!
How many times have you tried it?
Better yet, how "playable" is it?

I have no clue. I'm jealous of your collection.

Hard to NOT be jealous of a collection like that, that is a MESS of terrain you have yourself.
