The Shape of Things to Come is 8X8in Square

I’ve begun work on a new tile set Tannhauser map, it’s loosely based on the Avalon Hill, Betrayal at the House on the Hill tiles I had previously adapted to Tannhauser. I have 14 rooms and some hall pieces done (There’s a list below). If anyone has any room suggestion please leave a comment.

Here’s a sample room. Again created with a combo of SketchUp and Photoshop. The full set will be posted later.

Here is a list of the rooms I have so far.

Entrance, Commandant’s Office, Bunk Room, Mess Hall, Galley, Gun Emplacements, Store Room, Latrine/Showers, Catacombs, Crypt, Ritual Chamber, Chasm, Generator Room, and Holding Cells. Also there is an 8in Hall, a 13in Hall, T-Intersection, and a Small 90.

I personally like the random draw exploration play mechanic that a tile map allows for, but you can also just pre-build a unique bunker/dungeon for a scenario. The down side is that each room/hall usually only has one path, maybe two.
