I wondering why there isn't a sticky thread in the forum directing members to other useful sites?
I've found a website, free, its superb for images. While its mostly for RPG'ers there is lots of things that can be used by budding Vassal modders.
P.S. i'm not affiliated with this site in any way other than finding it absolutely excellent for my own Vassal Modding.
:)

Great sites offering free Images for RPG'ers and Paper Wargamers. Lots of images that are suitable for Vassal Mods.
I urge you to check them out!
:D

You can find there lots of side view pictures of soldiers, tanks, buildings, etc. There are also some top-down pictures, which might be more interesting for miniature games. Here's an example. http://www.juniorgeneral.org/donated/di ... opdown.png

This would certainly be an interest to me. I know a site or two as well.

What site are you refering to?

Nice link. Thanx!

Here's another good link for various pieces of art.

BTW, on following your link and jumping around to some of their links, I ran across a note that said Gary Gygax had died on March 4th. I was sad to hear that.

For those of you who may not know who Gary Gygax is, he was the co-founder of Dungeons & Dragons and, as such, started the whole world of RPG gaming. He also wrote most of the early books (Dungeon Masters Guide, Players Manual, Monster Manual, etc.) and many of the original D&D game modules.

Here's to you, Gary [cheers ...clink!]

Found another interesting site: http://www.the-blueprints.com/index.php?blueprints/

They have thousands of blueprints there. The site is more directed to 3D artists, but it's also interesting for VASSAL module designers. But I think some of the blueprints are copyrighted, so you can only use them as an inspiration, or have to ask the copyright holders, if you may use the pictures.

Edit: BTW I've drawn some terrain stuff for the VOTR module (Lord of the rings miniatures). I could make that stuff available for other module designers. Maybe I'll upload it to mediafire.

I uploaded the terrain which I made for the VOTR module (Vassal Lord of the Rings minis) on mediafire. Click here.

Feel free to modify the terrain as you like. And it would be nice, if you mentioned my name and this thread in the credits, if you want to use the terrain.

Great idea, the last is even new to me.

You can also find a lot of nice (top-down) stuff on
http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/

There are many custom maps/vehicles for the Close Combat Series.

Awesomeness. Anything special I'd need to do within VASSAL to use those maps?
