[Map] Beacon Station

  The groundwork for this map was done as a #mapvember map, but I wanted to finalize it by adding some details and proper annotations. The initial theme was a beacon station that would work as a hyperspace beacon and space traffic control station, but I think this could also…

[Map] A Buried Wreck

  During the last #mapvember I made a map of a spaceship buried in snow or ice. I find the idea of something buried into the ground waiting to be found very interesting and this was also one of the first things for me to write down to my idea…

[Map] Shrike-class Scout Ship

Shrike-class Scout Ship The Shrike-class scout ships are the tip of the spear in tracking and fighting the interstellar space piracy. These fast and manoeuvrable ships are designed for long-range scanning, high acceleration chases and interception tasks on remote systems with minimal military support. A typical Shrike-class scout ship is…

[Map] Hive Scout

I’ve supposed to draw a map of an organic ship for months already, but a few weeks ago I gave it a shot. This was not really in my comfort zone, as I’ve never done anything like this before. This is a saucer shaped ship that has bioluminescent lights pulsating…

[Map] Law Enforcement Outpost

I’m not exactly sure where I got the idea for this map, but I wanted to make some kind of base built on a side of a crater or an asteroid, for example. Based on the design, I would not place this map on an asteroid, but rather into a…

[Map] Orca-class light freighter

  I’ve been lately quite busy with the Indiegogo campaign for my upcomign (Finnish) RPG, but now it’s a bit more calm again. I wanted to draw some kind of small freighter or similar space craft and I also wanted to try again the style I used in the Vargr…

[Map] Vargr Pocket Scout

  As an old Traveller RPG fan this map was a real pleasure to make. Megatraveller was the second RPG I’ve ever played.  Why this is so meaningful thing for me requires a little anecdote. A Boy With A Dream When I was a kid we had D&D and Runequest…

[Map] The Osiris Station

  I’m reading The Expanse book series by James S.A. Corey, and while reading the second book I had an inspiration to draw a small space station with a hangar bay and facilities for a small research crew and a security team. Of course, I could not resist to draw…

[Map] Panopticon-class Prisoner Transport Vessel

This patron supported map was originally published on Patreon in January 2016.  I started to experiment with some alternative fill patterns to replace the “Dyson-style” hatch pattern with something more suitable for spaceships and other technical structures. After a few tries I came up with this pattern. I made a small sample, and decided to make…

[Map] Wrecked Spaceship

This is a quick map I did to test the idea of vertically built spaceships and it was kind of inspired by The Expanse tv-series and one of its spaceships.  So, in other words, this map was made hard scifi in mind – no artificial gravity except for rotation or acceleration,…
