Battle maps are awesome!

Everyone knows that having a wonderful resin scenery set-up, or a fancy neoprene battle map for those set-piece battles is great.

But what about random encounters or locations you haven’t planned for? Or what if (like me) you simply don’t have the budget for loads of scenery? And how do you even transport all that stuff to the game anyway? And even then, how do you keep things sufficiently varied?

When I started using maps and miniatures for my own RPG games these were questions I had to find answers to. And that’s where my map tiles come in.

Supplied in sets of 30, my double-sided, card-stock map tile sets will fit in a coat pocket and won’t break the bank.

Designed to be extremely flexible in usage they cover a series of locations. There are nine new sets for this Kickstarter:

  • Backstreets
  • Evil Forest
  • Scifi Utopian
  • Scifi Dystopian 
  • Water
  • Moorland Ruin
  • Desert
  • Hillfort
  • Linking Tiles 2

Each is detailed below. 

The Map Tiles from Wave 1 are also available! Here's a list of those:

  • Dungeon
  • Cavern
  • Mountain Pass
  • Forest
  • Heathland
  • Linking Tiles
  • Extra Detail Tiles

Most of the art is all hand-made. I use digital painting programs rather than 3d renders, so everything has a nice handmade feel that blends right in with painted miniatures. This time around I’m joined by guest artist Paul Bourne who does use computer renders, which are perfectly suited to Sci fi! He's guesting with two sets.

Here at Crowd Ox you can pre-order in bundles of map tiles, and you can choose which sets you want, and if you'd like them gridded or ungridded.

Thanks for checking out my tiles!

The tiles are six inches square - a size I have come to really love in my home games. It’s a great balance of flexibility, allowing you to build very different encounter maps from a few tiles, with extreme portability. 120 tiles will fit in your bag with ease and allow endless set-ups on the fly.

Here are the bullet points:

  • 30 tiles per set
  • 9 Different Sets available, having broken through all stretch goals (on day one?!)
  • Full colour
  • Double-sided
  • Printed on 270gsm card-stock
  • Highly connectable within each set
  • 6 inches square
  • Gridded and Grid-free options available
  • Digital versions available for virtual tabletops
  • Shipping is included in your pledge, with a small supplement for the places a bit further away from the UK/US.

Each set has at least twenty-two unique faces out of 60 - I've added more of any given tile where it seemed useful to have spares.


Backstreets 

Whether it’s a fantasy city, or a victorian city, this tile set gives you loads of options to create seedy backstreets for adventurers and investigators to explore. With plenty of twists, turns, dog-legs, and alcoves, and strewn with rubbish, crates and barrels this set is great for a whole range of settings! Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign. 

Evil Forest 

 In Wave One we did the bright shades of the greenwood. With this set we venture into the heart of the darkwood! Twisted branches, thickets of thorns and tangles of brambles; this is the perfect counterpoint to the fairer set. With a wide variety of paths and junctions, as well as tiles to create larger clearings. Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Scifi Utopian 

Featuring the amazing art of Paul Bourne, this scifi set is suitable for high adventure beyond the stars. Whether it’s a scientific exploration ship, an alien base or the corridors of a rebel base, these tiles are perfect for your science fantasy adventures! These tiles have a grid built in as part of the art.

Scifi Dystopian

  Again featuring the incredible work of Paul Bourne, this scifi set is suitable for the grotty underbelly of scifi dystopia! The worn belly of a freighter, a reclaimed imperial base that’s seen better days, or an automated factory in the dead zone, these tiles are perfect for your grimy scifi adventures! These tiles have a grid built in as part of the art.

Water 

Expanding on a feature from the Wave One Extra Detail tiles, this set gives you loads of options for lakes, rivers and streams, or even the sea. You can build islands, and shore lines, and includes a bunch of water tiles to create open water. This set is perfect to mix up your wilderness adventures. The Water Set connects to the Heathland Tiles from the first campaign. Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Moorland Ruin 

This set gives you an alternative wild lands to the Heathland of Wave One. As well as a whole range of attractive moorland tiles with plenty of natural features, this set gives you a bunch of ruined walls that you can piece together into an exciting adventure locale! Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Desert 

Rocky outcrops, boulder-strewn chasms, and dusty gulches, this set is perfect for post apocalypse and desert adventures. Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign. 

Hillfort 

With this set you can build a series of palisades and roundhouses to explore. Perfect for the hill folk, or orcs, or bandits! This set links up to the Moorland Ruin set. Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Linking Tiles 2 

These tiles link up almost all the sets in this wave with each other and those from wave one. Please note that we didn’t feel linking between the painted sets and the Paul Bourne sets worked. It seems like a lovely idea, but it just looked horrible! So there are links between all the painted sets, including the wave one sets. And links between sci fi sets. But not between painted and scifi.  Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Did you miss Wave One? Or do you need more? You can get a great deal on those tiles right now!

Dungeon (WAVE ONE)

The Dungeon Tile Set was a favourite of wave one. Full of corridors, rooms, junctions and steps this is the perfect set for your subterranean adventures! There are tiles to make larger chambers, as well as a load of choices for your dungeon layout. The Dungeon Tiles have a one inch grid built in, so there's no need to choose gridded or ungridded.

Cavern (WAVE ONE)

Classic cave stuff, this set features narrow passages (two squares wide on the inch grid versions, sometimes narrowing down to one), cramped chambers, and various intersections. There are also lots of tiles for making larger chambers from more than one tile.

There are tiles for 2 tile rooms, 3 and 4 tiles rooms, and even larger caves using the cave floor spacer tiles. It's a really versatile set for making that spontaneous troll hole along the road, or a small series of caves to explore.

Available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Forest (WAVE ONE)

A series of narrow paths through the green, this set is great for rolling travel on woodland paths. There are a variety of tiles for constructing various size of clearing. There's a tomb entrance, a pool, a woodland stream-crossing and more.

The Forest Set is available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign. 

Mountain Pass (WAVE ONE)

The Mountain Pass set works as a variant dungeon too, but is intended for crossing mountain terrain. It has cliff edges both up and down for walls. There are loads of stepped levels in this set, and tiles to make large arenas in the rock.

Here's the real thing in action:

The Mountain Pass set, like all the sets, is available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Heathland (WAVE ONE)

The Heathland Set one doesn't have the obvious paths or passage ways of the other sets - well not quite. It features rolling open wilderness, scattered with depressions, gullies and rocks. And there's a selection of road tiles that run through the open country. Here's half the set of 30 tiles in action:

The Heathland Set is available with or without a one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.

Linking Tiles (WAVE ONE)

This set provides links between: Forest, Mountain Pass, Heathland, Dungeon and Mountain Pass tile sets. There are multiple linking tiles to link each set, and between 3 sets. Available with and without one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign. 

Extra Detail Tiles (WAVE ONE)

These tiles provide objectives and additional locations for the Wave One Map Tiles sets, featuring flooded chambers, standing stones, a riverbank and islands, cavern entrances, a dungeon... restroom (!) and much much more! They work with the following sets: Cavern, Dungeon, Heathland, Forest, and Mountain Pass. The Extra Detail Set is available with or without one inch grid. You'll be able to choose at the end of the campaign.
