Finally got my pointing pictures up and into the Vault. Don't ask me why.

25th April 2017

Opened up a new section all for including stuff about the board game Super Dungeon Explore. There's not much in there yet until my own rules are finished, but hopefully will get some content in there soon.

V6 reaches its final form, as I've added the right info bar for wider screens, as well as managing to update all the blog posts in fairly rapid time. Had the bright idea to write a script which went through the old blog posts and updated all the image tags for me, so I barely had to do any work in the end.

You Can Not Be Serious

Dawn Of War

Dawn Of War is a game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A second Dawn Of War was released in 2009, which I didn't bother with as it made the armies smaller, and I want bigger armies damn it. I am hoping that at some point in the future we get some kind of cross between Total War and Dawn Of War. Would be cool.

Alternatively, Teamcolour files can go in:

which I believe will make them available to all mods and profiles, but I've never used that option.

Downloadable Multiplayer Maps

I have in the past created a load of Dawn Of War maps. None of them are very aesthetically pleasing, but they have all been made to promote the biggest, craziest battles possible, and my mates and I nearly always play skirmishes on these instead of the official ones. Below are my favourite four that you can download with some info about them:

Psycho Maze Map

Psycho Maze

Bottleneck Map

Bottleneck

Round The Garden Map

Round The Garden

One More Chip Map

One More Chip

Psycho Maze
Totally bizarre. Works best as 8 player deathmatch with random start points, though 4v4 can make some massive battles in the center of the map.
Bottleneck
A 4v4 map, with 2 paths through to the enemy base. One path is very small and most vehicles will not get through it. The central path nearly always becomes an absolute slaughterhouse.
Round The Garden
Based on a Star Trek Armada map. There are 9 squares with the middle one blocked out so players must move around the edges of the map.
One More Chip
Designed to look a little like the CPU from the Terminator films. Many, many strategic points. Slower computers may struggle a little when there are lots of players on this one.
