Hello everybody. This is Greg over at www.AxisandAlliesBoardGaming.com.
Here is a sample of my latest offerings. I’ve added USA, UK & German fleet hull camouflage patterns.
New options are available for infantry. Here are the upgraded infantry with a national flag on a red base.
And these are my “best” level infantry. These are meticulously detailed hand painted pieces and look absolutely fantastic.
Check out my website for even more items! Most ship pieces are also in stock for immediate sale at www.CombatMiniatures.org.
Thanks for the information guys! I’ve been wondering this for a while. There’s a resized version( I’d post the link here but not allowed yet) but it’s stripped of a bunch of the additions I like. The thread title is “Cleaned-up G40 map / 96x48” (Preview)"
I’m going to probably print a large transparency map based on the board I’ve been designing based on satellite imagery that is in some serious high definition.
If you’ll be using satellite imagery as the basis for your map, will you be keeping the real-world proportions of the land masses and oceans? The Global 1940 game map, for practical game play purposes, distorts both the size and the shape of various geographic areas.
No, I’ve taken the satellite images and enlarged certain areas so that there is room in places like Europe for the large scale of battle that often takes place there. When I’m done with the map file, I’ll post it here if you’re interested
Regarding prices, here are some quotes that I got from two different Southern California print shops (I had posted this also on the thread entitled Ambilzi & Grasshopper’s 1940 Global Map)
The first print shop provided the following estimates (note the $52 set up fee):
SET UP: $52.05 ( digital color file set up, latex printer set up)
48" x 105" vinyl $142.63 print digital color 4/0 on white smooth vinyl (15oz)
48" x 105" canvas $300.13 print digital color 4/0 on canvas
48" x 105" versa fabric $273.88 print digital color 4/0 on versa fabric
53" x 116" vinyl $174.63 print digital color 4/0 on white smooth vinyl (15oz)
53" x 116" canvas $368.13 print digital color 4/0 on canvas
53" x 116" versa fabric $335.88 please note: print cannot be any larger, printing on a 54" rolld
A second set of quotes from a different Southern California printing company for printing on vinyl (the type of material used for advertising banners):
48"x105" , white 64" Roland EcoSol Banner, solvent 6 color Roland 4sf $230.80
53"x116", white 64" Roland EcoSol Banner, solvent 6 color Roland 4sf $258.78
56"x122.5", white 64" Roland EcoSol Banner, solvent 6 color Roland 4sf $277.42
(I might check on the AliBaba website to see what I can find for printing services in China. Also, I’m checking on the possibility of printing on upholstery vinyl and marine vinyl).
The pre-digital printing technique that was originally used in comic books (among other applications) is called halftone printing, or halftoning; raster imaging is its digital equivalent. Roy Lichtenstein once painted a giant comic strip panel titled Whaam!, and I think Andy Warhol was also fond of producing oversized images in which the halftone dotting effect was magnified.
