Mos Eisley Meltdown

Jedicartographer's next adventure will be 4 double sided maps that will be sold exclusively at Miniature Market.


There will be 4 double sided maps for a total of 8 maps.  Here is the lineup-


Mos Eisley Docking Bay 93/Yavin Ruins(AG7)
Mos Eisley Government Building/Yavin Ruined Temple(AG7)
Mos Eisley Market Place/ Outer Rim Fueling Station
Mos Eisley Residential Area and Cantina/ Star Forge


The Yavin Ruins by AG7 and the Star Forge are added maps outside of the Mos Eisley theme to round out the counts. 


As we draw close to the official start of preorders, It is time to reveal the first of the 4 Mos Eisley maps.

This map represents a neighborhood with houses, a cantina, and a few other buildings. The official title is "Cantina and Houses"

Mine arrived today.  It looks great!
Thanks nickname for the reminder on cpreskas db94  

Don't forget there is another one he made that is empty without the falcon in it so you can have a variety when added to the MEM maps.
Every move in this game is a mistake, the hope is that your opponent makes a bigger mistake when he makes his move.
Maps arrived today. They all look GREAT.

Thanks for the great work. 
Got mine today.  Nice work gentlemen.

The maps hit central Ohio on Saturday.  Look good at first glance.  Some interesting corners to hide in it seems and some tricky angles for long shots.  I'll post more critique comments when I get a chance to play on them.
Beautiful maps, and some great game options with the 4-sheet Tat... um, desert planet, and the two-sheet Yav...that is, jungle ruins. Monday: the laminator!
Keep it up, JC. These are terrific.

Oh hey: I met and hung out with Boba52 yesterday. Quite fun! Nice twist to this whole thing.

Got my pack yesterday and as expected it is just of incredible quality, I couldn't be more pleased.
just perfect

This is all great stuff, thanks to everyone for the kind words, and thanks for making another map pack a reality!

This weekend we should be getting the fist battle report from my garage. I'll have pics!
I ordered some minis at the same time I ordered the maps from Miniature Market. I got the minis Saturday (5 days ago) but have not yet recieved the maps. Are they shipped seperatly or from a different location?

Just wondering if I need to contact Miniature Market. ;)

Can't wait for the maps! got a huge 4 player battle royal scheduled! :D
Now, it must be said:

What's next on the agenda?

YesYesYes!
Got mine back from the laminator today.
But I wonder what JC has up his sleeve? He was pondering some various other stuff.

      I guess the future is wide open right now. Right now I am enjoying a break from it all. I have promised myself that I am going to actually sit down once and for all and enjoy all the maps I've created.

     I've been getting more into depth about what I'd like to do in the future over at gamers.

     swmgamers.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t...

    one of the first things I'm doing is getting to work on Squid89's map. The other thing is designing the 2 maps for the mystery map tournement at Gencon.



   

    
Can anyone tell me if they ordered minis from Miniature Market at the same time they ordered the Mos Eisley Meltdown if the maps arrived later?

My minis arrived over a week ago and I'm still waiting on the maps. Undecided
Got mine Friday Morning!

WOW!

SUPER SEXY!


I played around with the alignments and just had a blast looking over these maps!
I'm so glad I've been investing in these map packs


Thanks agian to all the crew who worked to put together such beautiful work!

I'm both chaotic and orderly. I value my own principles, and am willing to go to extreme lengths to enforce them, often trampling on the very same principles in the process. At best, I'm heroic and principled; at worst, I'm hypocritical and disorderly.

Mine arrived as all one shipment.

Thanks ecs05norwa,
I've contacted Miniature Market to find out where my maps went. ;)
Got a chance to play on one of the Tat maps and on the combined Yavin maps yesterday night with Matt and WackyWayne, and they offer alot of cool options. I definately can't wait to get in alot more games on these!

Well, we played a "Capture the Droids" scenario today on the big maps with 5 of us.
The (200 pts) squads were:
Tuskens
Jawas
Rebels
Sandtroopers
Beasts (Krayt Dragons, massiffs, and Gundarks)
Here are the pics:
Initial Set up (Melissa, Rebel player, arrived during the first round, so she isn't in the initial setup pics)


It was a great time! Thanks for the maps JC!

It certainly looks like it!  And Rakghouls are always great.  Wink

Nic to see those RS versions of Luke, Han, and Leia (I'll bet that was your first time in along while playing Princess Leia, Captive!)
AMS-51 "Dendrite" Connection lost...searching...
THis is so beautiful it brings a tear to my eye! This is exactly how I envisioned a true "Mos Eisley MeltDown" to look!

Thanks so much for the great pics, Doug! I hope it was fun!
We're glad you like it!  It was kind of a toss together idea, sounded like fun.  We've got a bigger battle in the works, but that'll wait until Feb or March to see fruition.  It was a good time, I just wish my critters wouldn't have gotten so picked on!
I had to go pick my copy up at the post office, which delayed getting a look at them for a couple days, but they're just as pretty in person as they looked online.  Another bang-up job, JC!

Very cool.  Thanks for the pics.  That looks like a very good time.

Just bought this today for a 1K point game me and a friend are setting up. Coincidentally, my squad consists of mostly Sandtroopers.
Well, I've ordered my own pack!  Can't wait till it shows up!

I've said it before (repeatedly), and I'll say it again: I wish that all (or any even) of the official map packs that we got in the last year had looked as fun or genuinely playable as the unofficial ones.

Mos Eisley Meltdown is 30 Dollars this weekend it looks like. Black Friday Sale!


Advantage/Disadvantage is a TERRIBLE mechanic. DnD Next is DOOMED TO FAIL. Hasbro/WotC should do the DnD community a favor and sell the Intellectual Property to someone that won't keep screwing up...

Tuskens

Any chance you remember the team lists and would want to let them out? Sounds so awesome I'd love to do a recreation of this sometime!

Ditto, got in on the BF sale and saved 5 bucks, looking forward to running some scenarios that my group is working up.

Arc 170 Down (Rep Vs Sep)
Imperial Domination/Telosian Uprising (Imerial Vs Rebels)
The Invasion (Vong Vs New Republic)
Officer Assasination (Imps Vs Rebels)
Information (Mando Vs Old Republic)
Gang Rivalry (Black Sun Vs Fringe)


As we work them up and play test the ideas we have in place I will post the Setup, Scenario Rules and Victory conditions.  Should be alot of fun.
So, I play-tested a Battlefront scenario today that I made up. It can be seen in the customs boards here:

Let me know what you guys think, because I would like some feedback about this.

Mine came a few days ago, Now if only i could find a table big enough to play on. Laughing
Mine arrived last week, and they look awesome.
Mine came yesterday ^^

I was on my way to work and saw a UK Mail Van drive past. I automaticly followed it with my eyes and watched it turn off into my street, fortunately a neighbour was actually home to collect it for me *phew*

Looking forward to getting a game on this, though it'll be a while before I get to play that match I bought it for.
