About

As many of you are return shoppers, I won’t bore you with the history of Adventurers Atlas, Mighty Maps, or Armored Cartographers. Long story short, we make really great maps for games that need really great maps.

In 2010 I released a map pack independently jokingly titled, “Mos Eisley Meltdown.” It turned out to be extremely popular, and went completely out of stock within 6 months. Its official title was “Desert City Invasion” The massive connectible maps were a huge hit with war gamers from many games not just Star Wars Miniatures. Here is a great picture that depicts the size and scale of the maps.

I have been scrambling around for the past 6 months finishing up a set of maps. And the thought dawned on me that, more than anything, I would really like to revisit the desert space port.

It was created early on in my map making endeavors. The art was great for its time, but my skills have increased dramatically in 6 years of making maps.  As such, you can tell the difference in these 2 maps.

Map 1: Town Hall. It's not bad. But the colors are flat, and the shadowing leaves the image very 2 dimensional. The map was made at 150 DPI,so the fine details are also limited.

Map 2-Desert Outpost. Rich colors, bold shadowing, 300 DPI resolution. The template for the new and improved set will be based on this map's template.

Over the past 4 years I’ve established the practice of keeping terrain templates of my maps, in the event I may ever need to use them. As I perused my templates I realized I have so much desert city terrain and objects wasting away in my data base. And then then it dawned on me. The ability to create a new epic scale desert city map in a fairly painless and quick timeframe was at my finger tips

The New pack DOES HAVE a few new features.

-THE MAPS ARE 24x36 as opposed to 22x34

-There are 4 new locations on the flip side of each desert city map.

 

Below is an example of the template I will use for the desert city maps. This is a map of a sci fi cantina that I made a couple years ago.

 

 

 

New Locations include

-Hidden Monastery- A hidden monastery nestled in a ravine.

-Swamp Outpost- Old cargo containers and scrapped spaceships have been piecemealed together to create a settlement in a swamp.

-Moon Base- This bunker serves as the access point to a massive subterranean base (another map pack maybe!!)

-Marooned Starship- This starship crashed on the beach of an unknown world years ago, and a camp has been built around it.

 

STRETCH GOALS

Goal + 1500 – Desert Terrain / Mystery Map 1.

Goal+ 3000- Desert Terrain/Mystery Map 1  -AND- Desert Terrain Tile Set (Structures, and Land formations, Objects)

We’ll see what happens beyond that!!

 

 

Risks and challenges

The biggest complication will be delays in completion. Delays in completion are usually because I am tweaking the design or the art, or something isn’t working, and I need to make adjustments. Productions delays, while frustrating, are generally good news. It means you are getting a better product.
The second complication is you not receiving your package, or it comes damaged. There will be plenty of surplus copies left over after the drive. I personally guarantee a copy in good working order. If it comes damaged, I’ll simply send you another, free of charge. If it disappears in the mail, I’ll send you another one.
I cannot stress enough that the plan is December, but I am sure that will be pushed back, as the designs get tweaked, or more happily, If we achieve stretch goals, and have to add more products to the line up. Again, delays only mean good things for you.
