You can’t teach this because the learning curve is high for Illustrator CS, You just have to do it and struggle and it may take 10 years to be really good. I do suggest NEVER USE PAINT SHOP PRO. Their is nothing “pro” about it. It will destroy your computer from day one. Also, to save a few hundred bucks, buy an educational version ( its the same) using a student ID, you can just join the school and not even register for classes, just to get the ID and buy the program in the student store–make sure they have it in stock first.
You could register for a night class in basic Photoshop and Illustrator which would get you that student ID card and an introduction to the software.
This pic is of IL’s map and I am making a custom table for these smaller 1 on 1 games. Will have the wing affect on end like my 2 custom gaming tables with 1 dice box and battle boards. I will post pics when I get it done. Guys in group looking to play this game.
I’ll be able to take it anywhere I want to play.
Yes IL I know about the flooring. Just ain’t around. I’m still looking.
I could help with financing?
Dice would have either land or naval with a separate category of Air because that branch overlaps both
Symbols for land: ( green) 6 dice in set
Infantry x 1
Symbols for Naval: ( blue) 6 dice in set
Symbols for Air: (white) 6 dice in set
Strategic Bomber x 2
I’ve gotten several private messages and some responses in this thread… so just as a head’s up and a community service…
Because of the private messages, I have ALREADY made a deal to unload my custom units, and they are, in-fact, already mailed off.
I know its kinda pointless now, but if you’re still that curious as to what I did have, here’s the complete list of the custom HBG units I had purchased in the last few weeks to beef up my bins… since I later made a decision to pull them and not use them, I did eventually re-order equivalent numbers of default/original OOB A&A units from HBG to beef up my numbers (like if I didn’t like the two HBG Japanese Fuso battleships, I reordered two OOB Kongo or Yamato battleships to replace them… so-on and so-on. Anyways, here’s the (now kinda pointless) list:
(BTW: you may notice that for the most part, planes are missing from this list… I found most custom HBG aircraft to be good enough and scaled well enough to survive my “off-scale axe”. So there are many HBG planes like P-47s and F4F/Hellcats that survived the cut and made it into my permanent bins)

I know you’re in Canada, so not sure how/what your limits are to shopping or ordering online, but here’s a link to the organizers from Home Depot online… if nothing else, you get “the official” name.
I use these for the nation trays
I use this for the accessories
Of course, use them as you will…
As for my flags, I just used Vistaprint and made some small rectangular product labels and you upload your pictures into them… perfect for national bin flags… I made sure to use era-appropriate flags (like the 48-Star American Flag)
