The game tiles are made up of three sets, Elder City Ruins, Nazi Base and Snow Covered Outpost. All three feature both 10 x 10 and 10 x 5 tiles, but most of the 10 x 10′s are in the Snow covered outpost map. They are well made and there is an overlap to allow you to line up the larger tiles and tape them together to use on the tabletop. The artwork is pretty decent, making use of shadows and glow. The grid is unfortunately part of the images. I would have liked to have seen a layered PDF, maybe allowing some environmental effects to be added or removed, but I wasn’t really expecting it so I don’t mind too much.
The three area’s are definitely linked, with the snow covered outpost leading to the Nazi base and then into the elder city ruins, but they can be used independently as well. Overall I was pretty happy with the set, and will most likely be using it the next time I get a chance to run a Cthulhu game, whether Achtung! or not. I hope this wasn’t a one shot and that Modiphius plans on publishing a series of these tiles.
