Maps, maps...

..glorious maps...

It is a well known fact that show any average wargamer a map and he automatically goes into campaign mode..  imagining his armies sweeping, Stonewall'like, round the flank of the enemy..  marching through mountain passes, transported on railways/river, and the like..and that's just the effect when they see a London tube map.. 

Imagine what they'd do if they saw this little lot then [clicky]...
Fill yer boots... my thanks Paul/Thistlebarrow [clicky] for the lead, and for the web owner (Malcolm McCallum) for making them available for free use to one and all..

  1. Thanks Steve. This is a great resource. I have always enjoyed looking at maps and these will give much food for thought. Now I shall have to fight the computer to get useful copies - I much prefer paper. As you can tell I can now post comments :-). Best wishes.

  6. Thanks for pointing this out. I was at Osborne House on the isle of Wight last week and they have a 3D map of the estate. I went down to the beach where they have Queen Victoria's bathing machine and I was immediately thinking of an In her majesty's Name scenario of hideous Germans invading the estate from the sea!
