Tactical Map creation

Recommended Posts

To all the scenario makers I have a question. While I think I have mastered the art of putting together a scenario, I am still at a loss on how to create the tactical maps that look like those which came with the game. I have been taking a screenshot of the board, then drawing on it. This seems to work fine for small maps, but is really bad for large ones.

How does everyone else do it?  Thanks for the help!
