    The following are drafts of two new maps for the South African stand alone game. These are very early drafts I put together in illustrator so please forgive the rough state of them. Thinking about a couple of new or only occasionally previously used terrain types....

    Dirt Road... has the benefits of a normal road but only if units are NOT stacked. Brown.

    Stream... Costs 2MP to cross but otherwise normal (so less of an issue than a river hex). Light blue.

    Farm... the single building hexes. Basically provides 1 defensive dice for infantry and cover for them but that is it.

    Will post a revised counter list in a few days...

    looks cool! I like the rules on the new terrain type. I do seem to recall that dirt roads were usually mined and prime places for ambushes, so disallowing stacking in order to be useable seems a nice touch

    Glad you like it. I am also making an effect or convert the 3 8x11 maps used in the LOF issues into 2 11x17 ones compatible with other maps. It requires a bit of license on my part since the maps don't rotate well, but here are the current drafts of a 4+5 combo map and 3+new half map. As before comments are welcome...

    And as a teaser, a draft of a map from the other project I am working on. Location is redacted and will take someone all of 15 minutes to guess probably.
