Moderators,

Once again this is a customs related thread, but please bare with me, I won't make it a habit. Thank you!

I've been so pleased with this website and the more positive vibe its been giving off, that I wanted to do something special.

This map is availabe only to members of this community, so If you want a copy of this just post here,

SW Miniatures has needed a decent Theed map for a long time. Not to take away from other excellent Naboo maps, but this is a more straight forward skirmish map.

I sincerely hope you all enjoy it, I will have it complete Sunday morning, and available for cafe press. Right now all it needs is the rooms labeled, and some more of the terrain line added.

Wow that is a fantastic map! It is even huge friendly. I really like the way you have gambit set up. Isolated, but accessable to all pieces, even huges.

This is a great map, better than most of WOTC's maps quite frankly. Excellent work.

Excellent work, my good man! :D This might be you best work all around. Game play and graphics look very well balanced on first inspection. Are you going to have for download, too or just on Cafepress?

:oops: I didn't expect this much of a reception honestly. Thanks!

The map will NOT be available for download initially, its only for SWMgamers members. So In order to get it, Your going to have to PM me your email address.

The map will be available for print on cafepress tomorrow afternoon hopefully before the Patriots demolish Indy.

Once requests for the map die down, I'll probably just make it available for general download.

I sincerely hope It makes it up on Vassal, as I'm curious how it does in standard skirmish format. I kinda was thinking of those flash speeders when I designed the floor plan, so hopefully theres alot of potential for 200 point squads.

So once again, If you want this map PM your email address and I'll send it out.

Thanks again for the kind words and interest everyone!

Wow, I think this is one of the best SWM maps I've ever seen! Very very well balanced, and with beautiful artwork.

I like so many things about this map:
1) The gambit zone is entirely contained inside one small room; figs have to enter the room (in which there is no cover whatsoever) in order to get gambit points. That = no cheap gambit wins.

2) There are so many different paths of advance, which makes for better variety and strategy options.

3) Both sides are huge-friendly...even the gambit zone!


I only have one complaint:









I don't have one NOW! :D

I love all your maps. I am someone who got his SWM's collection online, so I basically had all the pieces from the starters and no maps. Since I didn't start playing until Bounty Hunters came out it was impossible to find starters or books anyway. So, my entire map collection is based out of maps I found at the Holocron. I only have the AT-AT and Korriban as official WOTC maps (not very skirmish friendly). I guess what I am saying is that you guys who make these are doing a great job and providing a valuable service to those in the SWM's community that kind of feel slighted by WOTC( as in little to none in the starter dept). Thanks god I have access to a plotter and laminator. Thanks and keep up the great work, it is really appreciated.

Wow, that looks fantastic! Excellent work on everything for it, man. If only WotC could keep the same things in mind when they made their maps! Though this looks to me like it might be a bit more melee-friendly then some of our other maps too, so that's another + for me! :D

Dudes, I'm monsterly touched that your all digging the map so much.

Some responses, I'm glad everyone like the gambit Idea, Wide open, yet covered at the same time. I'm also glad some of you are seening the melee friendliness, I made that a goal for this map.

And Lex! one of my biggest critiques! Your going to pick this one up???
I'm honored!

I just completed this about 10 minutes ago. I will have it up on Cafepress tonight. I'llpost the link here as soon as I get it up and running.

Keep the PMs going, Iwill shoot of the first wave tonight.

I didn't get the UM books until just before A&E came out.
