Gencon and Ares Games

Ok folks, it's official.  I will be at GenCon this year. My map will be making it's official debut there.   I will be playing two scenarios on my map.  The parts I am playing on are going to be 5&9 and 12&16.  If you'd like to see the coastline up close and personal, The coastline will be divided into two parts, 1,2,5 & 6 and 3,4,7 & 8.   these two 6 foot by 10 foot sections will be showcased at the Ares booth.  So stop by and have some fun!

UPDATE:  My games at Gencon are almost full.  There are three slots left for the Friday game, to destroy the Zepplin Sheds.

The Map...

This is the map in it's 16 three foot by 5 foot peices.  That's a total of 12x20 feet for the whole thing.  I am expecting to offer this map in most anyway I can slice it.  3x5, 3x10, 3x15, 3x20, 6x5, 6x10, 6x15, 6x20, 9x5, 9x10, 9x15, 9x20, 12x5, 12x10, 12x15... well I could go on, but you get the idea.  Plus, the bigger splices, say... 3x10... there are 12 potential different maps in that size.  so yea, it's epic... and deserves something really epic to go with it.

WAR! Over England!

The Germans have launched attacks at England.  Their bi-planes fly over our cities... bombing our factories.  it's your duty to join the fight.  Take the fight to them.  get them away from our homes and our children!

What you are looking at is the final version of my map. I have enlarged it to look 10x better than before.  it fits with the planes nicely...

Now comes the hard part of trying to make this monster available to the world.

Songs of the Great War....

If you were playing a game of Wings of Glory, would you want some music playing?  Some music that puts you into that time period?

Prototype of England....

Ok folks, here is a prototype of a section of my map.  I am printing one more prototype to see if that helps.  This seems good, but the next might be much more awesome.  For now, here's some pics of it:

The glare is from the sunlight coming through the tee I was under on my picnic table.

A SE5a flying over a small town and a very high altitude...

At this altitude, will the bombs hit their target?  

More to follow come the end of the week!
