Grunts & Grav Tanks: Map Map WIP

I've been working on the main map for Grunts & Grav Tanks. Here's a portion of the overall map (each hex = 1") as it stands now although I'll be doing more work on it, perhaps adding elevations, etc.

Grunts & Grav Tanks

Now that Ports of Call is winding down, I've started working on my next game tentatively called Grunts & Grav Tanks. This game will be very much in the spirit of GEV and Ogre. Here's some WIP counters (note, the values shown are just placeholders).

Ports of Call: Trade Symbols

For Ports of Call, the main map shows 81 planets, each of which features so-called trade codes which helps the player decide what commodities can be bought and sold. Below is the key for those symbols.

Ports of Call: Company Logos

A big part of Ports of Call, especially if playing with others, is starting a freight company. When you do that, you can choose from a collection of 10 icons to represent your company. The symbols differentiate your ships from those of other players (and their companies). (Btw, I used some of the team colors from MLS.)

I'm finally making some progress with Ports of Call. I've literally gotten more done over the last three days than in the previous 3 months. Today I wrote descriptions for some of the ships. Here is one of the pages (note, this is still a work in progress so stats and wording may change).
