Tomb of Annihilation used 1" hexes for the outdoor (world) map, but I haven't heard of anyone setting up their outdoor encounters that same way. The groups that I've seen running it (including my own) have just used the map in the book or photocopied ones to keep track of the group's world location and then (as you said) use square tiles/maps for any random encounters.Bruce Hirst wrote: So can anyone tell me which board games using 28-30mm figures actually use 1" sized hexes for movement? The 1" is measured from flat to flat. I hear the Dungeons & Dragons uses them for outdoor movement but I've never actually seen anyone play the game using hexes. Instead they just use squares for inside the dungeons.
I would consider making some 1" hexes if I could justify enough board games that use them that also use 28mm figures and need scenic details of the same scale. I've previously avoided them because 1" hexes don't give you much room for movement and trying to assemble a large floor is difficult because they don't line up as easily as 1" squares do.
and I love it! So clever and versatile. use it busted up, use it whole...the choice is ours!!!Galileo wrote: Clovesy, that's how the ruined fieldstone mold works too :D
