satellite style zoomed out battle map sheet

Each figure represents either an entire lance, or just a single mech spread out across the battlefield. 1 hex is short, 2 is medium, 4 is long.

Basically, took a screen grab of a satellite image from a random location in Africa, then played with the colours, painted on forests and coloured in lakes and dams, and painted on gray roads. The rest is fields / scrublands etc.

Then put a thin yellow grid over the top.

I'll have to play a few games on it and try out how well it works, but I love how it looks :)
