Desert wadi. Simple with longer sight lines and dirt roads.

It looks great!
What program do you use to make those maps? I need to make a map of Suez for the Italian Campaign but I don't know how to make it clear enough for people to read.

I use a modified version of HMM. I can help you getting it working for AAM if you want to get into mapping. Its really fun and rewarding, just ask Reb.

Its pretty cheap in my book and is capable of printing in a standard printer with any sheet size. The software divides it up and prints it sheet by sheet or saves it as an image and take it to your local print shop. I removed a lot of stuff from mine and replaced them with WotC terrains. It fully supported by the owner/designer on his forum. The biggest drawback is streams don't follow hex edges.

Well, compared to what I use (Photoshop), it's a deal! :D

If you download GIMP for free, and all the WotCmaps and tiles, you can make passable maps, but they may take a while to make! :D
And it's really fun once you start, I'm sure addicted! :wink:

Its not nearly as artistic as Rebels maps. His maps are a labor of love and mine are just a few easy clicks with no real artistic merit. They suit the purpose though.

Wouldn't quite call 'em a labor of love... but they do take a while to make! :D Your's are really fun to use though! Almost want to get the program! :slinger;
Which reminds me, what should I make next? :D
