Here's some changes I made meanwhile:
  • smoothed out some borders and some rivers
  • tried to change the wood a bit

still have to see if I can find something different as a battle-icon and need to draw some mountains and redraw the trees. But what do you think of the wood now?

It is still overlapping in the middle. Can you not shorten the small lat of wood so it does stick out next to e-gaul?

The boxes with letters on the right if the unit rectangles might be better on the left as the unit numbers will run off the right side in games with where units grow above 3 digits. That does happen more often than you might think.

Overall love the concept for this map and look forward to playing it.

I like the updates you have done. The helmets look a lot better as well as using mountains instead of hedges for impassable borders.

The bridge above Aduatuca is off as its not crossing the river.
