Tactical Hex Map-Desert Set I

Tactical Hex Map-Desert Set I

Watermarked PDF

The Tactical Assault: Game Tools™ - Tactical Map Sets are a single panel map overlaid with large (30mm=1⅛ inch) hexes. To include variety and flexibility, the file is built with different layers that can be turned off and on to create a variety of unique maps from just the single PDF file (20+ different maps are possible in most cases). 

In addition, the maps are designed to be geomorphic within set types (e.g. Woodland, Desert, etc.) so they can be laid out in a wide variety of combinations. And because folks can print out as many copies of each map as they would like, combined map layouts can be as big as needed. 

While intended for use with the Tactical Assault: Legendary Battles™ rules using the Tactical Assault: Combat Cards™ or the Tactical Assault: Fantasy Cards™, the maps can still prove very useful for those folks who don't currently play either the Combat Cards or the Fantasy Cards. 

For example: 

Mecha Miniatures Games
The bases of these miniatures should fit nicely within a single hex. 

6mm (1/300) or 3mm (1/600) Miniatures
When you don't feel like setting up a battlefield of full terrain, use the maps as your battlefield. The miniatures themselves should fit nicely within a hex. 

Role Playing Games
Place several maps together for a detailed area of exploration, or base of operations, for a party of characters. And with room to write notes in each hex, and the ability to expand the map on the fly in whatever direction the characters go, a GM's job just got a little easier. 

Board Games
The maps work great as a new battlefield for an existing game - especially games using the "block" style game pieces

All that is need to fully utilize the maps is Adobe Reader (or other PDF reading program), a printer and a sharp knife & straight edge or a scissors.  And, like all Tactical Assault Games' products, it is fully supported with free downloads, tips & tricks and more!

**Please Note: One some maps, features on one layer will overlap features on another layer. This was done provide users alternate terrain choices for those hexes to maximizes the difference between map configurations. Please see the the free Tactical Hex Map - Instructions & Free Sample for more information.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
