August 2011

I am a visual person and immediately needed something visual to keep the ideas coming.  Here is the best map  I found.  It’s a good starting point.  My next choice is whether to use areas like Europe Engulfed or hexes like East Front.

The Schlieffen Plan of 1905 and the French Plan XVII

I am skilled with Photoshop as photography is my other hobby.  After trying both areas and hexes I decided on hexes.  They were easier to make by taking the photo and using a hex pattern overlay.  The end result will be rough but usable.  I want a large map so I plan to cut the map in half at 20 x 30 (the largest poster size for my local Costco).  With the 2 halves assembled, I will have a 40 x 30 map.
