I decided, finally, to have a go at making a map! Wow! This is too much fun, takes too much time, and is way too addictive..... It's Prokhorovka (again) and I've been very grateful to Chris for assistance with finding maps to trace etc, and also for his own (bigger) Prokhorovka map and scenario, which got me started wanting to do my own, in much more detail. This map is a smaller area (basically, the 'Corridor' area of the battle) and will base a scenario dealing with the 12 and 13 July 1943. I will use Chris's EF estab, pending an official EF estab! Here's a pic of what I've done so far. The map is almost complete - I need to put names on all the little villages rimming the Psel and I need to research field patterns and sizes for the 2 huge State Farms that take up the centre of the map, then put those fields in. I need to put some mud in around the balkas (I think that's what those low gullies are called). All help very welcome. It was extremely frustrating learning how to do the contours, and hurt my eyes a lot! I worry about all those control points dragged off the left edge of the map - hope they don't turn that edge into a cliff face of some kind..... Is there anything anyone who has done this before knows that they wish they had known, but didn't, when they did their first map? If so, tell me!
