I like the idea.

=D>

The colour scheme needs to lighten up quite a bit. I understand you're going for a military drab look, but it will be hard for anyone to get a good look at the map and make out the armies against that background.

I think it can be brighter even a bit more, but I'm aware we have dark maps like this on CC, so it's not necesarry. It's just my opinion, because I don't particularly like those maps as well.

As for the gameplay, I look forward to the progress you're making, because it's obvious you're putting some serious work into it. I'll comment on that later.

It's a good first draft! Keep the good work going.

Changes:
  • redid all the boxes to make 'm bigger otherwise they would be too small with the 600x600 version
  • added troopnumbers so it becomes slightly clearer what the map gameplay is

I also toyed a bit with the colours, but I have no idea what type of colour or brightness you guys desire. So opinions?
Which map and Which legend lay-out do you prefer?

version 1(original):

The nicest colour, I think, is the light green which you used in the Legend on version one. If you would paint the main map area with the colour you used in the Legend, and then make the Legend some contrasting colour, that would be great.

Yeah, the legend of version 1 looks good. I'm not so sure about the map, so I voted for version 1 as well, but you should note that that decision is probably made, because the legend makes the map come out better looking.

I like this! The map's layout is straight-forward, and the various weaponry and vehicles at the bottom give it a kind of Axis & Allies feel (wrong war, I know).

Poison Gas is pretty powerful. Are there no safe terts from it? Could some terts have gas masks to protect from it?

However, taking the tert will be tough, and since each is tied to an individual player, players won't be able to keep it at a single by taking turns hitting it. Still, stacking Rad Labs looks like the way to go.
