Please edit your post and include a small resolution image so that this post can load properly. The image is huge and takes a long time to load.


Please link to the full-size image.


It is rather unusual to see a paved battleground 🙂


What is the map size 2×5?


Looking forward to seeing the scenario to get a better idea of where this is taking place and what is going on.


What is your intention with this map? To have people play it? What is print resolution? How big will the map be? It looks huge.


Happy HoN player in Toronto.

the map size is 2,5×3,5 and is based on the arnheim 1944 map

based on A4 paper print you should be able to just print it and put the parts together to have the right size. but i will later bring an updated version where you will have each part printed on a A4 page


im also thinking about the dome cathedral to be a seperated printing object but just to get you a feeling how big it is, i have to split it into 2 A4 pages 😛


btw, the cologne towers are modular and the higher you are, the more attack value you have.


i will start working on the written scenario next week

Likely it is your image storage service, but the map is presenting at 72DPI (screen density) and 4793×6613 pixels.


At 300DPI printing density, that map shrinks to 16 inches by 22 inches. Apologies for those on the metric system, I am not sure the print density in metric. The results convert to 40.5mm by 56mm (very roughly).

From the map, what is the way to go up to the towers ?

I see only one stairs in the church.

Yes the stairs are the place for the first tower and the 2nd one is above.

When the scenario is ready you will finde a picture for this as well

Looks like some serious work went into making this scenario. Thank you for sharing.


I would love to play it one day but as it is, there are too many new units not from the game. Maybe this can turn into printed expansion.

Thanks for the flowers.

Sadly i can’t offer you a printed version, but if enough ppl are interested devil pig games could adept this for a mini expansion. Or we could (at least the map) it print as gaming mat. But i guess we would need a few more ppl who would like to get this


Anyone knows a good company who offers custom gaming mats?
