Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

They do Normandy '44 in big format as well.

Yeah, but I don't own that one... yet....  :P

But they have given me an idea. I can use the graphics from the VASSAL module to print out my own large scale map. And if I do it here at work it's free! OR I got to someplace like Vista Print and have them do it on vinyl.

That would look great on a wall. You would just need a way to keep the counters from falling off.  :dreamer:

Are there any copyright issue though?

Not if I don't sell it I'd guess.

What sort of cost is involved to get stuff printed out like that? Also, what about the counters - not so much printing them as getting them cut.

Its all very interesting, though.

Back in the day, I had a plan to do that with Advanced Third Reich
