The Fall of Arnor Warmaster Campaign.... the strategic overview map

For an upcoming Warmaster campaign set in Middle-earth, I needed a strategic overview map to keep tabs on where each sides armies are. The strategic overview map must have regions and strategic locations on it.

I have a copy of the War of the Ring board game and the maps in the WotR board game were ideal for this purpose. As the campaign will focus on the fall of the Dunedain Realm of Arnor, specifically its sub kingdoms of Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur and its war with the Witch-king of Angmar, the western map board is the choice for keeping an overview of how the war progresses.

The decision as to how best to determine reinforcements hasn't been worked out as yet, but may be either via the War of the Ring board game rules or the 1st version of GW's Mighty Empires rules.

The campaign will be the backdrop for the first battle reports that will appear on this blog. More to come...
