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.

Thanks,

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.

Hello everyone!

I've just added mold #702 Fieldstone Pillar and Door mold. You can see it at http://www.hirstarts.com/molds/molds5.html#702


I'm currently using it to make a wall set for the Gloomhaven game along with molds #179, 701 and 75.

This pillar mold makes it easy to fill the odd hexes around the outsides of the game board. I should have this project finished and instructions for it in a couple of weeks.

The main inspiration was from the game board that Bum Yong Kim had made and posted a video of. I had even given him a call and we had talked about ideas that might make the walls easier to create and use.

I also have finished the 1.5" hex mold for dirt rocks and grass. However, I still have to make duplicates and test it out. I'll probably show it used with the wall set but you could only use mold #179 for the floors if you didn't want to purchase another mold for floors.

Thanks,
Bruce Hirst

looking at this one up close....wait.....whaaat? the ruin blocks and crenelation blocks fit into each other to form whole blocks. AMAZING! It's like some sort of next level, ambigram magic. Very cool indeed!
Can't wait to see these all painted up!

Clovesy, that's how the ruined fieldstone mold works too :D

I know of at least one person that used them to make a hidden door in fieldstone.
