The level of detail that the Heroic Maps team consistently puts into their work is very impressive. I've purchased and used a number of their products in private games in the past and am extremely pleased with the map for The Lich's Lair.
The chains and carved arcana are well made and not overused, while the overall "dusty" and "unused" feel of the place is piled high in exactly the right amounts.
A must have for any Cold War military enthusiast and Wargamer.
Very well researched, easy to read and well illustrated.
Covers the various types of each vehicle with all the specifications and data.
Having owned and read several of his books, Russell Phillips is at the top of the game in military publishing.

A very nicely designed set of rules, designed to be simple enough to play with minimal referring back to the book. The key premise is that to succeed at at an activity, be it hitting, shooting or solving an objective, you need to roll 4 or above. The variables are how many dice you roll and how many sides they have, and the modifiers on those factors are minimal and pretty easy to remember.
I highly recommend getting the basic rules book in conjunction with Pulp Alley Leagues - that book provides the flavour to this book's mechanics. If cost is an issue, I'd advocate getting the free rules download first with Pulp Alley Leagues - pretty much the only thing you'd be missing at that point are basic scenarios.
The author of the rules has also started putting up demo games on YouTube, which are well worth a watch for getting an understanding of the game:
Awesome set of paper minis! The witches and bats would work very well in a Ravenloft/Curse of Strahd adventure or campaign. The witches would also work well as hags in any fantasy rpg. I haven't used the witches yet in my own 5E campaign, but have used the bat swarm and giant bats in a Halloween adventure. You can see pictures and read the write-up of the adventure here: https://thulaen.wordpress.com/2017/09/01/session-6-grim-mano- r-part-ii/
Great Haunted House battlemaps! I found them just in time for Halloween. I'm building a horror/trap haunted house game (D&D 5e) based on these maps.
I like the detail of the spider webs, and the decay on the tables, and flooring. I also like how the maps align with the floor maps above or below it. It makes my map transitions on my VTT that much easier, where i can prepopulate the tokes on the next map.
Aligning them on Roll20 wasn't that hard at all. Very easy.
Thanks for your work!
P.S. I also have my eye on that Inca/Aztec temple battle maps too.. :)
So it's always very easy to review these products from Heroic Maps because basically they are the best.
The qulaity design of the maps, the artistry and the competitive price make these my go to maps for whenever I need something new.
I've downloaded quite a few of these now, varying from the modular kits to the battle maps and they have all been of the highest quality.
