2018 Mighty Maps Relaunch Campaign
Mighty Maps are 24x36 inch battle maps. They are based on a 1.5 inch grid, and have Heroclix compatible terrain markings.
A brief history of Mighty Maps:
The Mighty Maps concept originated from our retail arrangement with MiniatureMarket.Com. For several years they had carried our 3rd party Star Wars Miniatures maps, and after WOTC ended the licensing contract, and that game was discontinued, Adventurers Atlas had to find a way to move forward. Steve Lucinski, owner of Miniature Market, suggested we do a series of maps for Heroclix. He actually came up with the name, and Josh Derksen, my partner with Adventurers Atlas, came up with the logo.
We felt that Heroclix Maps had some obvious artistic challenges. The images were low resolution, murky, and messy. But artwork aside, the most infuriating thing about Heroclix maps was the hideous black grid and thick terrain marking that would be slapped opaquely over the image. We knew we could make a better map. We knew that the grid and terrain markings could be discernable without overpowering the image itself.
We ended up releasing about 12 of these maps. They sold well, but we never really found prominence in the Heroclix Community. I continued to make maps for Mighty Maps, but never released them to the public or had them printed. The series ended, and for the time being Josh and I went about our lives. But we always end up getting the band back together to put out new stuff.
Reviewing the maps, Mighty Maps was an amazing little collection. I nice mix of genres, and really cool artwork. Although they are primarily for Heroclix, they really can be used for any RPGs, especially superhero or modern games
We recently went through our archives and restored, edited, and improved some of the maps. We released them as a digital “print and play” collection. Several incomplete maps were curated as well, and are in the process of being completed.Many people ask me if any of the Mighty Maps are still available. I believe a reprint of many of these maps, as well as an initial run of these new maps, is worth at least exploring.
To start, we would like to release a previously unreleased set, along with an updated version of an older map, the Hall of Heroes seen below. Seen above, the War-Torn City.
Every 2000 Dollars another 2 maps will be unlocked, either never-before released works or classic maps. Your initial investment has the potential to double, triple, and so forth. When 4000 is achieved This map will be added, a double sided map of a City Port
Risks and challenges
I have ALWAYS delivered on my kickstarter drives.
HOWEVER.... Every single one ALWAYS takes longer than I expected. This is because I like to make sure I am putting out the BEST stuff I can, and sometimes I need extra time to make the maps amazing.
