Nice map but I don't understand the train bonus? What is both trains? Is the map in the top right necessary. I like it because it puts things into context but is it necessary. Maybe use the word Uprisers instead of risers.

I like it. I just don't visit the foundry often enough...:-)

Strongly concur with both of those points. Plus, it's nice to see some work from a brother Slav..:-)

About the only thing I would say is that the little yellow dotted lines for the railroad will be very hard to see for old farts like me with bad eyes. I would make big thick yellow lines there, with a diameter at least 1/2 of the diameter of the train station boxes.

Same thing with the one-way arrows... bigger and bolder.

Some of the wording is a bit clumsy, but there's plenty of time to play with that.

thanks Nola.

here is version with better "train" bonus. there is no train bonus, there is bonus for hold both stations of the train. there are two trains=two railways Cremosne-Zvolen and Kremnica-Brezno. the B.Bystrica is crossroad not needed for railway (train) bonus, but if you hold it and train you gain +1.

small map. hm, it is very needed I think. no everyone know what and where is Slovakia ;) I did it black/white.

Hmm... its a little crowded, but I think its better than off train maps.

Is there any way you can expand the size of the green region and give everything a little more room to fit? I mean, it would skew the geography a little, but it would improve the readability.

Also, is this similar to Baltic Crusades where the cities and stations are within the regions?

I can move mountains a little off green zone. this is only one chance to expand its size which I see...

no, regions are red circles, so for "regional bonus" you need to hold only red circles. I have some idea how to explain this better in legend...

thanks for your comment.

Ok.... lets clear up the English a little bit and go from there.

"Bratislava, Slovak Republic.
On August 29th, 1944 partisans rose up against Nazi Germany and the Slovak puppet government. They were joined by several mutinous units of the Slovak Army. That September, the Wehrmacht moved against the rebel stronghold and the partisans took the fight to the mountains of central Slovakia."

"Without tanks or artillery, the Slovak Rebels resorted to armored train cars to support their troops. Hurban, Stefanik and Masaryk were the principle contributors, their stations give the following bonus."

+2 for any six towns
+3 for any two with B. Bysterica, -1 if held without any German unit
Can bombard rebel airport and train stations
Can bombard rebel regions (green) and German airport

German Buffer Zone
Slovak rump state
Rebel stronghold

---

This might be a stretch, but what if you could fit the German route arrows onto the map? It would make things clearer and you would save on dead space. As it is, this map has too much dead space.

Oh hell yeah! Now that looks like a proper military map. I wish I had done this on the communism maps. I really love the arrows, plus everything is pretty clear. It looks great!

But unfortunately, uprisers isn't a word in the English language. I can't think of anything better than rebel though partisans works too. What's the word for rebel/upriser in Slovakian?

I am glad that you like it. it is new power for me :D for witch map of communism you can done this? and you still can ;) for Cuba could be oneway assault interesting - it is small map, so some restrictions could be fine.

partisan is term of rebels. so I will go with partisan (which is also English as you mentioned).

I will change also railways.

just one thing: +2 for any 6 towns - I mean for ANY town (town, town/battle site, town/airport) - is this clear?

EDIT: new "real" railways and some changes.

Yeah, +2 for any 6 towns makes sense to me... you might do to put somthing like "any town, battlesite or airport"

Speaking of which... that bonus is a little tough to get. I mean, if you hold six towns, you have six borders and countless ways a person can attack you. It seems like a bonus that is impossible to get. You might be better with +1 for any 2 towns/battlesites/airports.

but if player holds any German unit route (3-4 towns) he get +2/+3 with next any 3/2 towns he get next +2. will speak more about this.

one more thing - the -1 for holding town with garrison without all German unit - I meant this -1 without unit where town with garrison belongs. not any unit. how this shortly explain?

I'm not sure I understand. Are you saying if you hold the garrison but not the whole route then you get -1?

yes.
example: you hold Zilina (town with garrison) and Zilina "belongs" to German unit route of von Junck (Cadca, P.Bystrica, Zilina) and you do not hold all von Junck you get -1. so you if you hold another German unit route, for Zilina you get -1 (to the time when you will hold all von Junck).

EDIT: new arrows. better?
