We're ready to start the bonus adventure, "The Long Arm of the Hutt," but it'd be nice to have more maps to help the players visualize the story.  Part of the story takes place on a map we already have, and there is one small map included in the PDF, but a couple other locations aren't mapped -- e.g., Nabat (a spaceport at which one arrives) and the Mines of New Meen (and New Meen itself).  I suppose I could try my hand at Photoshopping up a couple of maps for us.  

Has anyone else tried that?  If so, are you willing to share?  Or might I find these locations somewhere on the web?  A quick Google search was unsuccessful.  (I did turn up a lot of mods for the SW: Battlefront computer game series, but no useable maps for a tabletop RPG.)  Thanks in advance.

Try looking for Star Wars Miniatures Maps. A lot of people started making custom ones when the miniatures were still being sold. The grid and scale are smaller on those but they can probably help you guys in some way or another.

I even thought of using the miniatures themselves to represent certain characters.

Thanks for your reply.  I'm indeed poking around at Star Wars miniature stuff.  It's a good idea.

I'm curious -- are other folks just working through "Long Arm of the Hutt" without additional maps?  I know this game is supposed to be "theater of the mind," but a map really helps set the mood.

Star Wars Miniatures are a great supplement to playing any Star Wars Roleplaying Game. I used them for SW D20 and I will use them for "Edge of the Empire". Fortunately the minions, soldiers and fringe heroes are mostly Commons, so they do not cost very much on Ebay. There are two great map sources I found during the last few years.

They sell maps which are generic, but feel very much like Star Wars.
