stealing some of Gary's links

Quote from: GJK
Here's a remake of the S&T game "The Desert Fox" that I did a while ago.  I thought that this one came out nicely:

The original map is here:

Antietam: Burnished Rows of Steel

Mine: http://garykrockover.com/uploads/Antietam-Map.jpg

Original: http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic185624_md.jpg

Remember AH's Air Assault on Crete/Malta?  Here's the Malta map done as an exact replica:

John Prados' Third Reich done with different colors:

(ZunTzu gamebox)

Every play this game (NFL Strategy)?  I took mine out of the box and drew it for a VASSAL module:

The Gamers In Their Quiet Fields as a VASSAL module (map and counters redrawn):

This map was a b**** to draw.  A remake of GMT's "Ardennes '44".  I like my bulge games to go east to west but GMT decided to print the map north to south (Germans come from the south).  I re-orientated the map and redrew it how I like it.  :)

Tons more that I could post but those are some of my better examples I think.  I strictly use Photoshop (old version 7) for all of my stuff.  I also had a lot more free time to do all of this when I was married too.....  :O
