New map preview

Gather 'round guys, gather 'round.
A new map in Svarog Sector!!!

Welcome to Shapat. A world devoid of all but the most basic life forms. Average in almost all aspects it's an imperial backwater with low priority in the hierarchy of the sector. Neatly tucked in depth of Imperial possession in Svarog, it houses a small garrison, several Mechanicus outpost and excavation enterprises.

Small Imperial Guard garrison houses a listening post, but this deep within Imperial space, Shapat is mostly used as one of the frequent astropathic communication conduits.

There are rumors that Lord Svarog and Sector Command plan to upgrade this little outpost into a true communication hub and there are even whispers of colonization effort and terraforming with use of highly adaptable and aggressive Mandragore flora.

For now, how ever, Shapat stays a backwater world, untroubled by tides of war, safe and unassuming.

Although, to be completely honest, there is something which makes this world unlike any other in the sector.

Located in the deep desert, far away from few human settlements, ruins of ancient civilization breach the desert sands luring in archeo-analysts, Adeptus Mechianicus, historians, archeo-savants and a whole plethora of cultural institutions from all over Svarog with promise of knowledge, enticing hearts of men by speaking to curiosity that dwells within.

After a series of unfortunate events relating to research parties, excavation teams and other personnel involved in the project, dig site was sealed of by order of His most Holy Inquisition.
To this day, the ban is still in effect and sealed with it are secrets of Reflection City as well.

Enough of back-story :) More to follow once the map is out. Map is 4vs4, three height levels connected with ramps. It's not clustered with pathways as some of my other maps are. In fact, this is, besides Avet Alpha, the most open map so far.

On opposite sides you have 2 camps from which your troops descend straight to ancient city.
Resources are well balanced across the whole map and all 3 levels of the city so have no worries in that regard.

Map should represent and ancient city dug up from sand and as you read, it's 13.000 years old.
It's human in origin, for those thinking "Yep, I know this tune, here we go Necrons" :D
Given the nature of the map, that is a somewhat creepy excavation site, I and Tragicvision have prepared one or two SCAR surprises for you.

That's about it for now.
Enjoy the preview
Cheers.

Your maps are so awesome.

It would be cool to play a campaign in the Svarog Sector instead of Kaurava...

I try to make them good and memorable for fellow DOW fans :).
War Eternal campaign should be like SS campaign but with my custom maps to represent the Svarog.
If everything goes as planned that is, and even then, whole lot of work still to be done.
