Custom made Breakthrough Map Wed, 23 July 2008 01:56
Hey all,

I thought you might want to see what my brother and me have been working on during the last weeks. It's a beautiful custom made Breakthrough Board!!!
As I don't know how to post pictures and it's too late to figure out how, I just uploaded some pics to my user page.
Enjoy and expect a tutorial to follow.

Very nice! Any plans to post the image of the board on BGG (www.BoardGameGeek.com)? I'm also interested to see your boardmaking tutorial ...

That's very nice!

Could you please upload a good sized image (tiff, psd, whatever you've got) so I can print one myself? I do have the means to print a board that big, all I need is the file.

yousendit.com, rapidshare.com, whatever suits you the best.

I'd HIGHLY appreciate it!

Great Map. It appears to be laminated. You could probably use it as a tabletop for regular scale memoir games as well, since it is larger.

I'm very sorry, guys. Well... lazy would be a better word Rolling Eyes
But I promise I'll have at least a simple, basic tutorial to boardmaking online by next wednesday.
That okay for you all?

Well by the first quote, since it was posted on Monday, he could be referring to NEXT Wednesday, not today. Sad

Well, I'm just three and a half hours late... not bad for a musician, isn't it?
Ok, Step I of the tutorial is online and covers the basics. Hex measurement, layout, design and stuff like that. As I've added some figures, the file is quite large. ~ 3MB. But, as you will understand, I needed some figures to explain certain things. Sadly, my english is not good enough to rely entirely on verbal communication...
I hope you enjoy and learn.
I'll make sure to answer any questions you might (and I suspect will) have and will be adding more steps in the next few days.

Damn, I forgot to remember you all to make sure to add the red section borders...
But I'm sure most of you will have thought of that yourselves.
I might change that tomorrow, though.

Ok, part II of the tutorial is online, giving you a few ideas on how to deal with background designs. In addition, I've corrected some typos of Step I and added a reminder to add the section borders...
