I may not have been painting much... but I have been thinking an awful lot about the Hordes of the Things campaign. Planning and organizing armies, buying miniatures off ebay, designing a fantasy setting of my own... and making a map of it!
Here it is (you can click on it to see a bigger version):
Orcland - is obviously the Orcs - not so much a nation as a loose grouping of tribes that occasionally recognize one of their own as overlord and go to war under them...
Dwarvia - The equally obvious land of the Dwarves.
Amundaland - From the ruins of a once great ancient civilization has sprung an army of the undead! BWA-HA-HA-Ha-Ha-ha-ha.... ha... heh...
Nordland - Humans (think "Vikings")
Angland - Humans (if you guessed "Saxons", you were right...)
Narn - Humans (You get three guesses, if one of them isn't "Normans" I'd like to slap you with a dead fish).
Eilf - The Elves.... now those of you familiar with DBA/HOTT campaign maps might notice that they have a limited number of routes to the rest of the world and the only way to get anywhere would be through Angland... well... those are the routes for "normal" sea-faring folk... The elves have an ultra-secret "special nautical movement rule"... Shhhhh, don't tell anyone... (Don't worry everyone else will have some sort of "special rule")
I haven't gotten so far as to come up with the names of the kings and rulers or much of a background... but that's coming...
