I don't usually post reviews on flipmats unless there's something jarring with them, so this one gets one.
The Knight of Golarion Shieldcraft/Javelin map looks really good - has clearly delineated sections for various things, high detail, each part of the map looks like it has a purpose and the bottom looks like, if not a bridge, at least a Combat Information Center (CIC) adjacent to the bridge.
The Hellknight ship on the other hand, first of all has a kind of dried-blood/rusted metal red look to it, which I don't feel is appropriate (would have preferred bright reds) but also seems to lack any coherency.
There's living quarters on the north end which are rather spartan. Okay. There's a security desk in front of the living quarters for some reason? And the centerpiece is....I don't know what it's supposed to be, a Helldrive I guess? But it looks like a vampire's coffin. Finally there are two non-descript consoles in the bottom left and bottom right areas that don't clearly go to anything.
The Hellknight map unfortunately has a lot of negative space which wasn't utilized properly. I get the intent (confining corridors versus the open space of the Shieldcraft) but in practice it results in a lot of wasted map real estate and no chance to show off what makes the Hellknights distinct from the other side of the map. I would have liked a more gothic and complicated styling to this ship deck design.
