Ghost Archipelago locations

Here are a few setups for Ghost Archipelago games that we've used. These all involved homebrew scenarios.
River and waterfall
More islands
I'm curious; do any of y'all make up your own scenarios for GA, or do you use the ones from the book?

Ogre? Ogre

Here are some pics of my Ogre game from a couple months back, including a wide shot of the map.
Lots of GEV-on-GEV action in this game.
There was very little urban terrain for the GEVs to hide in.
That Ogre with the yellow stripes belongs to another player; these games are starting to see more minis from people besides me.
What to do when your Ogre wants to avoid being shot at by the other guy's Ogre?
The answer? Submerge! And let your superheavies try to inflict some damage.
Speaking of damage, there was lots of it collaterally, as spillover set some forests on fire. Also, note all the death pennies marking casualties.
See? More minis from other folks--in this case, the blue tanks.
Will numbers overwhelm the cybertank?
More like the other way around.

More Ghost Archipelago

Another game of Ghost Archipelago from a few months back. The scenario involved another volcano, so the island must be somewhere not too far from the realm of Muspelheim.
My Heritor and crew were quick to find the central treasure, surrounded by several smaller treasures.
Did I mention that the volcano was active, and belching lava what seemed like every turn?
To be fair, the scenario also provided for fissures in the ground opening up, as well as a tsunamis to mess with our boats.
Meanwhile, the crew that entered a cavern in the volcano was fighting some sort of demonic ... demon?
And my guys just kept getting splatted with lava, thanks to a location die that I think was unbalanced--how else to explain the molten rock always landing on my side of the table?
I mean seriously, we ran out of lava to place. You can see a fissure in this photo as well.
At the end of the game, the once-green island was ablaze with smoking lava fields.
At least some of the other crews got a taste.
There was even a tsunami that pushed some boats around.
This was a scenario that made us work for our treasures.
