A different kind of Sea Side...

My D&D version is called Csighd.    This is a real Sea Side.....

This is of the English country side.   I have been hard at work making another map for Wings Of Glory, the Air Combat game from Ares Games.   My primary focus is the First World War.  I wanted to make a map that allows you to recreate bombing runs on England.  Mind you, I'm not going to have a map that takes you into London.  this is as far as you'll get into England.  You just can't make a map from satellite imagery from a place 100 years ago.  Using imagery from today, there are many anomalies on the map, specifically, Giant Power lines crossing the map.   It's tough to find a good area to make a map from, since there is too much modernization of the world.

This area is a good area, It's got a lot going for it.  It's got great areas for bombing, it's even got a nice "road" cutting through the map on the left side that makes for a good railway that can have a train running on it, where the mission is to shoot up the train, stop the supplies from reaching the front line..

The map eventually will be about 8 feet by 10 feet in size.   It'll be broken up into 4 actual maps of about 4 foot by 5 foot in size.  It's also going to be good for the WWII enthusiasts as well.  The detail on the map will be quite amazing.  even if you decide to make it even bigger.   The original map that I made from Dom's map  sized nicely to over 12 feet in width.  and I made it for only 4 foot in size!

A couple things that have to be done before I can even remotely release this imap.... so stay tuned in the coming weeks for it!


  1. John I am keeping a close eye on this as this is perfect for my wings of war ww2 scenarios we have planned. This is stunning sir.

  2. Thanks. There has been a 'massive' delay due to my home PC not being up to snuff. I have it ordered and I should be up and running within a week or two. The n the fun begins.... I can't wait.

  3. I got the "english countryside" map that was originally made by Domjan Svilkovic and tweeked by Huginn Greiling from board game geek which you've mentioned on this blog. That one is outstanding on 56.5" x 40" inches. I can't wait to see how this one turns out once you have your PC up and running
