I have an old board game called Kings & Things [recently re-released in germany] that has great hex tiles to use when mapping out your Kingdom, you can see examples of two different versions

and here

I have it too!
Love that game!

Use http://imgur.com/ instead of rapidshare. People won't have to download it. (Nor wait for it... 15 minutes for the 2nd image is waaaay too long.)

Thanks, here you go

pic1, pic2

And yes it's an awesome game!

Saw the suggestion in another thread about using hex tiles similar to these/Catan for gradually displaying a map of regions explored by the heroes. LOVE the idea, but I'm not too technically saavy. Would love if someone had a template to share!

I'm also going to have the issue of being a traveling GM for this one since allergies of players and the cats in my home are an issue, so I'd need a suggestion on how to transport things.


I've used my leftover Heroscape tiles to build a 3-D representation of the map.

any Pic's to share?

I cannot recommend the 'mighty empires' set from GW enough for this. It has enough hexes to serve you for both chapter 1 and 2, it has flags you can paint to show claimed and explored areas, and even cities you can put onto the hexes.

Those look cool! Very popular on eBay. I wonder if some of the hobby shops around here carry that expansion.


Using the image extractor from SomePDF.com, I extracted the image of the map from the Stolen Lands book. Using PosterRazor from http://posterazor.sourceforge.net/ I created a multi-page PDF of that image to print (using a 2 inch overlap so I could make sure and have whole hexes).

I then printed out the hexes onto cardstock, cut 'em up and am gluing them to a piece of foamboard as my players explore. Beats a hand-drawn map any day.

For those interested in using Mighty Empires tiles, you can view the PDF that GW made freely available some time ago here:

All great ideas here! Thankx
I went on an expedition to find lower cost tiles and found this game with 2" hexes that are pretty low cost 2D tiles that can be ordered separate from the game.

http://www.viktorygame.com/

Follow the resource section to Viktory II components then choose order tiles. 180 tiles for $15 + shipping.

Waiting on mine to arrive now!

Do you think you can email me that multipage pdf so I can see how you did it?

Thank you!!

I'm interested as well in that .pdf.

For those interested in creating a 3d version in hexes, you might look into the TerrainMaker hex products from GQH.

I will have an epic photo to show you guys later; my housemate just finished painting both the north and south sections of the greenbelt using two sets of mighty empire hexes from GW. Be prepared to drool.

Awesome idea. I have Mighty Empires around here somewhere... Looking forward to your photo. :)


Hello,
I'm kicking off my Kingmaker campaign this Saturday. I love the idea of using Mighty Empires for the map. So, I've been working on a Kingmaker map using Mighty Empires hexes also.

Got the nothern part done and am working on the southern part for #32.

Here is the link to some pics of the Mighty Empires map;

Hopefully my players will be as excited about the campiagn as I am!

Hmm that looks differen from my Mighty Empires hexes... I only have simple cardboard tiles.


I used the new plastic unpainted hex Mighty Empires that GW came out with a year or two ago. They actually paint up quicker than I thought. The hardest part was doing some of the custom work with the dremel and filling in some areas with green stuff.

It was a good excuse to get my ME stuff that has been lying around for two years painted up!

Exactly how many hexes are people expecting to need? I am wondering what is in my price range and Im not sure


I took the hex map from #31 and assigned each hex on the map a number.

I used about 48 of the ME hexes for #31 which, with some converting, works out to about 1 ME box.

To add the hexes for #32 I added a second box of ME hexes. Once I have the hexes done for #32 I think there will be about 72 hexes on the map.

I think there are about 50 hexes per ME box at and they are about $50 per box.

Taldor

Two mighty empire sets will comfortably map the Greenbelt and serve for chapters 1 and 2, with a dozen or so hexes spare.

Just need to find some damn batteries for my camera and then i'll imageshack our hex map.

You're very popular Eric - me too please (email in profile).

Thanks to everyone for the tips!

I'm actually considering using an old hex mat that got some dry erase on it and filling in the map with permanent markers.

Hey, if you could send me the .pdf as well, I would appreciate it!

I'm using my Memoir '44 / Battlelore Hexes. I bought a piece of foam core the correct size and sticky tack the pieces to the foam as the hexes are explored. It's easy enough to add the cities on top or removes the hexes, plus it can be views on a table or on a wall.

I'd like a copy if you are spreading the love.

I hate to say it, but I'm not emailing out the PDF I made, as distributing it probably infringes on Pazio's copyrights to their art. On the other hand it might not, but but I'm erring on the side of respecting Pazio's work. IIRC, the company has stated that they don't want any of the internal artwork in their PDF's distributed unless it shows up in their blog first.

The steps I've described are very very easy to do, and all the software to do it is free. It literally took me less than ten minutes on the computer, start to finish.

Maybe Pazio could release a set of "terrain tile" images on their blog or something. Otherwise, the Mighty Empires map tiles are pretty good at that.

Finally got the buggers up. Mighty Empires Geenbelt, fully painted by my housemate and player.

I felt like I could finally share my work in progress. The greenbelt is actually completely done now, but my camera ran out of batteries, so you get a bit of an older snapshot. :)

Enjoy

3D Stolen Lands Hexes


That's really amazing, Varthanna.

What kind of materials did you use for this?

That'd be the TerrainMaker hexes mentioned further up in the thread

http://www.ghqmodels.com/store/hex-material.html , along with latex paint, my old GW paints for the water, and flocking and foliage thats available at most hobby (trains, etc) stores.


Goes Green with envy at both versions


Does anyone know the dimensions (length x width) of the bits listed below for the the original 1990 version of Mighty Empires? In millimeters would be preferred, if possible. :p

- Village
- Cities
- Castles
- Army minis

Has anyone attempted to use the Mighty Empires for the other 3 major areas? How much converting was needed to use them?
