Most of the feedback has been very positive for the 3D Campaign Maps, so I thought I would share a little more progress and setbacks in the prototype.
First, here is the picture of the fields around the towns after I added 3 different paint schemes to the original green of the paper cut-out. I really love how these turned out.
Pros: great visuals
1. I think the fields are too big, but I may be wrong. I could get away with much smaller fields surrounding the towns.
2. The paper that I glued onto the foam has contracted, causing the edges of the foam to turn up near the fields. Uggh! Just look at this warp!
Solution: don't use the "field" paper, and just paint on the fields. I'll have more control over the layout that way too. Also, I will be adding another foam sheet under the terrain to give it more sturdiness and to allow for something special. You will get a glimpse of that in the next post.
You can see the light colored brown villages along the roads. I wanted them to look different than towns.
