Sheesh, its been over a year since I posted anything here.  Let's see; I'll just list out the projects I have been working on since then, assuming my memory goes back that far...

I made up graphics for a bunch of High Flying Dice Games including "Battle’s Orphan: The Bay of Pigs Invasion" with two maps,  "Cockleshell Heroes: Operation Frankton, December 11, 1942", "A Scourge of Stone and Spirit: The Siege of Harfleur, 1415" mini-game, and I am finishing off "Vallée de la mort: The Siege of Dien Bien Phu.

For Blue Panther Games I made up the made the map and other graphics for  "the Struggle for New France" and all the graphics for "Road to Independence: The American Revolution 1775-1783".  And I just finished up with the new graphics for "Vive L"Empereur!" which is moving from White Dog Games to Blue Panther Games.

I am currently updating the graphics for the scfi game "Volters Lead the Way!" which is moving from White Dog Games to Tiny Battle games.

The canvas map for Vive L"Empereur! is a beautiful thing.  :bigthumb:

Thanks.  The counters gave me fits, and I'm still not that happy with them, but the map came together really well.  I thought the original map was amazing in its detail, but seemed to me like too much of a good thing.

I sent in the last of the graphics to Paul and just got back the final fixes needed, so hopefully this will be out by the beginning of December. "La  Vallee de la Mort" will have three separate maps (three different battles) and 4 counter sheets.

From the first to the last.  Vallee de la Mort covers the battle that led to the creation South Vietnam.  Now we have "White Christmas; the fall of Saigon" which covers the end of South Vietnam.  Paul sez this will be out in Jan. of the new year.

My latest game graphics are for a game on the Battle of Palmetto Ranch for High Flying Dice Games.  Its a game of the last battle of the Civil War.  It takes place in the far Southeast corner of Texas and had the dubious distinction of creating the last man killed in battle during the American Civil War.  Paul has asked me to start making up back covers for his games.  Formerly they all were ziplocked with no back cover but now he has started offering boxed games with more standardized front and backs to the boxes.

Paul already has three more games lined up for graphics upgrading that I can choose from.

1.  Operation Icarus: The German Invasion of Iceland (game and custom card set).

2.  Operation Source: The British X-Craft raid on the Tirpitz (solitaire play game and custom card set).

3.  A Hard Day's Work: The Battle of Droop Mountain (largest American Civil War battle fought in West Virginia, uses the same design as Palmetto Ranch).

What should my next project be?  I'm leaning toward Icarus.

Map done.  Counters started.  Cards still to do.  I gotta say, I really want to like this game but the rules are a bit of a dogs breakfast.  There is a good game in there, but IMO it needs more development.
