Battlemap Folders Thu, 18 February 2010 21:57
SO..... despite my damning comments 18 months ago I finally purchased two of the battlemaps (Tigers and SOS)..........and I think they're great! Also enjoyed playing Overlord, and the fact that you dont have to set up all the tiles.

I also like the folders and the artwork on them, except of course they have the blister packs stuck over them.

So the question is, how do you get them off without ripping the folders to shreds?


By the way, if the maps/folders had just been a fraction smaller that would have fit into the base game box. Nevermind!

Welcome to the light! Laughing

I found that as long as I get my fingernail or a knife blade between the plastic case and the cardboard base (not the map envelope), the plastic comes right off! I got lucky on my first few ones but then ripped one accidentally just the other day because I wasn't paying attention.

Good luck and again, welcome to the Battlemap Overlord fan club! Cool

Is there anyway I can get the card itself off (so that I can see that lovely Tiger)

I haven't tried to get the cardboard off, so I can't say. I don't know if that's possible though. Razz

I managed to get the cardboard and the plastic of the Sword of Stalingrad pack intact, so I use that as storage for my combat cards.

I used a very sharp knife(small kitchen knife) and slowly cut along under the cardboard, and made sure the blade was angled towards the cardboard and not the map folder. It worked fine.

I also did this with Hedgerow hell , but on that I tore up the folder a bit. I just taped over that with some clear tape. Works fine.
