Finally, I have my map printed! Oh, yea!!!



  • Here is wider picture.  It just shows the whole thing leaned against a book case and some boxes.

  • Here is a picture of Japan and sz 6 set up.

  • In the next week or two I hope to have it mounted on some plywood and hung up on a wall.  I’ll be sure to post some more pictures when I am completely finished.



  • AWSOME, props to you buddy, very nice map.



  • i like it! but one quick question… what are all those troops doing in spain?

    About that stack in Spain, I did that just to show the holding power of the magnets.  It is a stack of 35 infantry.  If you are wondering about the magnets, I used 1/4 inch wide x 1/32 inch thick neodymium magnet and epoxy glued them to the chips after using sand paper to roughen up one side of the chip and one side of the magnet.

    Very nice!  I am so jealous of you right now  🙂



  • I think I might accidentally mail you some money and you will accidentaly mail me a copy  😉


  • Customizer

    Excellent job. I am quite impressed with your new refined map scale. It looks perfect.

    Yea i might accidentally send $150 in the mail and by accident get a copy of the file.

    Ha, ha, ha you two.  With Wizard of the Coast having said  “HELL NO!” to my plan to distribute the map for free, the currency used to pay me would have to be untraceable.  As such, I would only accept an equivalent amount of gold.  :lol:



  • The envy… Great job! This would certainly be something I´d buy if the Wizzards would bring it to market!



  • did you say you made changes to the map? or only changed the scale?

    If you want to make changes to the map, make Hokkaido its own territory (the game can tolerate Japan getting 1 or 2 more IPC/turn)- i would just like to have it as a territory.

    This map doesn’t change that much, that would def effect balance.



  • Nice improved map.  What is the new size?



  • I want to print my own copy too, please share the file ;____;
    That game doesn’t have a copyright here in Italy, I bought it from the USA myself.



  • Very, Very impressive. I just spent a lot of time and money building a customized table for my 1940 global game, and I’m in the middle of editing a complete players handbook, so I know what its like to finish such a large labour of love. Well done.



  • GSH34, Very Nice Map. I had planned on making my own Global using wood. I have made several AA boards in the past ( see past post of mine to see). Now I am think I should paint a map on a metal sheet. Then I can cat proof the board with magnets. Again, great job!! -AAGator



  • ya know, your map is so nice, I wonder if it can be posted up in the sticky area instead of the map they have now.  I use that map often when discussing moves when my board is put away, and I gotta admit after looking your board over, you did an amazing job.

    I’m so jealous, I will PM the mods to start the ball rolling.



  • I’m pretty sure it is not permitted to publicly distribute it. However sending it to some of your friends for review, at no financial gain is surely legal, even though explicitly permitted.

    Furthermore I am highly doubtful that Wizard doesn’t have a team of FBI hackers checking which files you send to your friends.

    Plus, one having this map still compels them to buy all the pieces from Wizard’s so it isn’t unlawful competition.

    As I understand the file is surely big, I would like to point out (although you most likely know of their existence) that there are sites that specialise in the sending of big files.

    Just saying, in case you would have some remorse 8-)
    I am just saying that there exist quite a few grey areas.



  • Yes…… I think WOTC didn’t understand or didn’t want to understand the harmless intentions you had and were to quick to say no. Unfortunately for us… you are too honorable, but if you ever decide to give wizards the finger, let me know, I would love a copy of your map.



  • wow, this is exactly what my wife and myself were talking about doing… Magnets on the wall…  no room in our house for a dedicated table 😞



  • I have printed a map recently with the help of Ambiliz, we added a income tracker along the bottom edge……

  • ……as well as air and naval base icons.

  • Could I get the details of where and on what you got this printed?
