This project looks outstanding. I love playing early war scenarios whether ASL or minis. I eagerly await your design hitting the pre-order page of whoever. Thanks for the work.

Maybe this is the item that allows MMP to develop and produce a CdGv2?

Also, add some of the General and Annual scenarios into this small, STAND ALONE, French module and wel-la......

Sie la vie?

I submitted it to Chas last year at WO. We spoke again about it this year at WO but weren't able to sit down and go over what they needed. We did disuss redoing the map to make it fit standard sized maps so that's where it is now.

I have 8 scenarios ready to be redone to the new maps as soon as I get it done. I forgot how much work it involves but it is moving along.

The crayons are all ready!

Working on this again with the help of Nadir.

What I'm looking for is any pictures of Dinant that you folks might have. Specifically of the West Bank of the river.

Thanks

PS: Nadir is doing a freaking great job on the map. Here's a small sample.

looks like part of the village is under water, is that the way it is supposed to be?

I'm guessing the aqua green is the lowest level land on the map and that this is not Venice, Scott.

Get Nadir to use Standard map colours as the map looks great the colours look crap.

It's a playtest map, a small jpeg and MMP is being worked with apparently. I don't think this is a final draft he is showing here. If it is, then yes, use a new color palette.

There are a ton more buildings and other terrain to go on the map. Don't get all flustered this was an early rough draft It looks really good.

No body wanted to do this module for 10 years. Maybe it never gets published. Nadir and I will have a cool ASL product.

Opposed river crossing in rubber rafts, scaling cliffs, motorcycle troops, cavalry, R35's, ferries, night, this is cool early war stuff.

Just a quick update.

Nadir has finished the playtest version of the map and I'm currently busy converting scenarios from my old map to the new (much improved) one.

Attached is a picture of the area in the first scenario where the 7th Pz Recon Plt threw some troops across using the weir to launch rafts from.

That sounds / looks very good. I enjoy early war stuff a lot, so I will surely support this!

I can't think of any other CG's out there that feature an actual river crossing, so it will be cool for sure.

Hi Dan,

Did you create that map on hexdraw?

I use Adobe Illustrator / Creative Suite for print graphics. Never got the hang of Corel Draw / Freehand / etc.

No, Nadir Elfarra did it. I believe he uses Corel Draw.

Attached is my version.

Nadir's is a bit better, don't you think?
Dan, tastes vary, but your original has a "folk art" pulchritude that I've always admired.

I'll always remember seeing it. Please don't lose it, and I thank you for making it.

Dan,

Ever think of signing that and selling it?

The picture could be a very interesting item at the Winter Offensive auction as the Dinant HASL is released....

Just saying.
