Imperial Assault Printable Skirmish Map Project

Recommended Posts

The 4-player Temple Gardens map from Heart of the Empire is ready! Again thanks to @leacher@Oslatirand @fabiofotomoto to thank for their work (roughly respectively) of scanning tiles, cleaning the images, and arranging into the map.

It's so big in both directions it doesn't fit in the standard height, I didn't make any PDF strips for it. Also, I pushed this one out a little quicker and experimented with using less of a key. Instead I tried putting more and larger symbols on the map. Hope it works well for everyone. You can find the full res version and printing instructions on the project website.

Speaking of printing, Printi still doesn't have vinyl in stock😞 If anyone else has suggestions of other print shops that could provide similar services on vinyl or other materials for reasonable prices, please let me know and I can place a test order.

Can anyone say what the $ price used to be for the long vinyl banners thru Printi?

With a vista print coupon I can get to $80 for 2 + $8 shipping.

My last Printi order was 10 maps (in two strips of 5) for about $45 basically $4.50 USD per map.

(But this was during a Black Friday sale, normal price would have been about $5.30 USD per map)

So Vista Print sounds very high at $40 (!) per map or am I reading that wrong?

Yeah it was 2 strips for $40 each and that was AFTER the 40% off!!

So it was $80 + $8 shipping for 11 maps : $8 each.

 

I guess I'm waiting for Printi to come back on line!

Vistaprint update - I just worked out I can do a 4' x 10' and get two 5 map strips + add 2 more individual maps for the $100 base price + $8 shipping.

Now to wait for the 40-50% off code and pull the trigger.

(If  they re-offer the 50% off again, which was on offer last week - I'll get $58 shipped for 12 maps = $4.83 each)

 

Not sure of quality, so will report back

 

<<ORDER PLACED!>>

Looking at the mini map, there are only two deployment points? Are the other two missing?

Ok so rcvd two 4' x 10' banners with 25 maps on them - just finished cutting them down - look awesome. Print quality is great and much better than what I'm used to on a blurry mouse mat.

All in all 25 maps for $118 shipped - not bad!  $4.72 per map!

I see 4 colored zones for deployment on the mini map. (One is in each corner.) 🤔 Are you referring to something else?

Also, is anyone going to put the newish Raid Mode map up? 

I'll look into doing building when I have a work break; possibly in early September.

But anyone is welcome to access tile scans I have and start putting it together. We've had some great community contributions in the past by map-builders. 😀 PM me with your email for an invite (preferably Gmail as the files are on Google drives).

Did you ever finish this project?  What you had looks pretty good!

It's not yet finished, but I've continued working on it and will finish it. I've already built my own custom 4-player-skirmish-map from scans of original tiles @nickv2002 invited us to use and which I refined a bit, and had it printed in good quality on neopren and sent it to me from Great Britain. Here's that map in 200 dpi printable resolution (72x72 cm):

I've worked on and finished several graphical connecting elements and details which now enable me to more quickly create several generic tiles and customize them to make them unique. I've already finished compositingand refining the tile representing the central raised platform, as well as the first 'room' with its ruined brutal architecture and the ominous blood-red glowing lines which highlight many structures and give many dark corners a foreboding blood-red hue:

All tiles which I create and present here can be used and altered by the community as they see fit, provided credit is given.

@Fourtytwo, do you have your new tiles stored on a cloud drive that others could access? You might have mentioned that somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Those tiles are awesome!

Thank you! I'll upload all individual tiles on our german miniatures games forum (tabletopwelt.de) and add the links here tomorrow plus a few more of that particular environment not used in the map above.
