Trying Something New 7 Years, 10 Months ago  
Papa Troll's recent post about what one would need to do one of the WotC maps got me thinking... The SW game just ended, and i have always wanted to run a full skirmish on DF, not just the RPG. So i pulled out the RotS map and looked at it and tried to figure out what it would take to reproduce it with DF.

Attached is the Tile system mock up of just that, a few words on the picture.

There are some Cavern bits used as place markers for real things i will be using in the actual set up (some Grendel Sci Fi, and a few other things that just aren't in the program's pictures, some need to get painted first). To get itto work as presented the covers of Alpha floors will be used as the floor in the main pit.

It's close, but not perfect.

I hope to build it tonight and maybe even run a game on it soon.
If it gets built i'll be taking pictures :)


Edit...
Whoops a bit to big, so trying this again only smaller....

Looks good! Are you saying that the Alpha covers will go UNDER the standard Sci-Fi floor and wall sections, where the WHITE areas are being shwon in the map?
If so, should be int'resting!
Dunno why, but I could've SWORN that LoneStarr got the Sci-Fi Photos out; was I mistaken?

Just out of pure nosiness, WHO are the Lizardmen Ambushers filling in for?

See ya!

Yeah i think that is what i am saying (not 100% what you are saying ;) )
I didn't want a 2 inch area around the edge of the pit, and i didn't want a 4 inch either, so was trying to figure out a way to give 3 inchs, i at first thought doing it under but it looked kind of odd, so i may put it on top. Not sure what i am doing with it now... I now want DF to make half walls and floors in SF... :D


I had enough items on hand to make about 60% of it, so not quite done i will be grabbing the rest of my DFSF tommorrow so will put it together Sat night (and will finish painting some scenery tonight).

The Lizardmen are filling in for Hover droids... Scenery elements that provide cover... i'm still not sure what the heck i am going to use for them.... I have some ideas but i don't like the size of what i was going to use, either too big or too small.

For the next SW Minis game i run at my FLGS i am going to be be using some DF, i wanted to reproduce one of the maps, and so am going with the RotS map, there are a few things that need to be fixed, i may make some HA to finish it, but this is the basics of it.
