Camouflage Confusion

The GHQ of Northern Chalupistan cannot seem to decide on standardized camouflage colors or patterns:

T-54's on the move (C-in-C R-15)

T-72 (C-in-C R-60)

Originally, I was going to paint them Russian green, but it seemed to dark and dry brushing was not very successful. So, I thought to try various camo patterns. I have yet to find something I like. The antennae are not positioned where they should be on Russian tanks, but I couldn't drill a good hole at where they are supposed to be, which is on the turret's side.

Behold, the Map!

This beast took forever to do. As I said in my last post, it was mostly the numbering of the hexes that took up the time. I found out recently that Adobe Illustrator has some sort of macro function to speed up things like this, but I didn't know this until I was just about done.

Now, I am making a set of campaign rules for Karl, who is playing Northern Chalupistan. It is being cobbled together by using the scales of the various rules that I will be using and fitting it to the above map. I am still trying to decide if I am going to go with one set of rules for each type of warfare (air, land, sea), or just use whatever depending on my whim. I am pretty sure that I will use AirWar: C21 for air combat, but I have several options for land and naval warfare.

Campaign Map Finished

I finally got my campaign map of the continent finished. The final touch was to number all of the hexes. Man, that was a lot of work!
