Hi, Heroes. I am in the process of making some battle maps for some games I am planning. These will be very specifically battle mats, meaning I will use them for epic battles. For the inside of buildings or subway tunnels (most of the game, really) I am happy to rough sketch the area on a piece of paper. For a full on battle royale I enjoy the old school battle map of a city block or giant temple. I used the hell out of the map that came with my 3rd edition game. That bank and Rosie's Diner still can't get affordable insurance 30 years later. If I make a battle mat say 4x3', one that takes up most of my gaming table, what scale would you suggest? I don't really use miniatures much so I'm not familiar with their general scale. I also use 6th ed so this will be my first map without hexes although I may keep them for nostalgia purposes. I can easily scale the squares (or hexes) to be 1/meter or so. So, if I make a map with a pretty good overhead view of a city block or some such how many meters would you fit to an inch given that the overall map is 48x36 inches? For users of traditional miniatures, that scale may be proscribed by the size of ur doodz.
