I do like the looks it gives. the putty kind of filled in some of your rock texture. I think if you did use a brush to pull out  the extra material and some sand or use small ballast and sand that might work to.

If you had it up for sell I'd buy a mold just to play with it as well I know you don't think its ready yet but maybe having us play with it and see what we come up with may be helpful?

There is a popular series of boardgames by Richard Borg that uses hexes : Battlore (the second edition has just arrrived), Memoir 44, Command & Colors, Samurai Battles....
I would be interested to improve them with some 3D hills for example. your tiles, on top of a 2" hex mat (Hotz Mats for exemple) ,would be a good idea.
As for outdoor tiles for D&D : yes, 1 inch square ones, rather thin, would be great, although some people are right, it's possible to use gothic dungeon tiles and paint them green.

And your rocky hexes are just great !!

I have been working too much lately and not on the boards. I really like the looks of this. As for games using different terrain types this is from the way back machine. http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/1511 ... r-survival I still have my copy on the shelf, it is nearly 40 years old (my copy) but still a good game.

As for using this I would be more inclined to use it for setting pieces. Build outdoor encounters but not entire boards.

I know I don't post much anymore these days, but when these are ready, I will be buying 3-4 of them.  

How will multi-mold discounts work for double sized molds?

These double sized molds will count as two molds for shipping but also count as two molds for the discount.

Thanks,
Bruce Hirst

So I think the possibility of creating vertical surfaces using these is interesting.  Im putting together another 10 mold order for november (my wife said I can buy 10 molds every 2 months...lol) when will this be available Bruce?
Molds: At this point its easier to put the molds I DON'T have:91,86,311,90,204,206,210,211,265,266,74,76,79,88,261,260,295,340,421,422,423,180,181,182, 222,223

In a week I should have the 1.5" and 1.75" hexes finished. After that I'll be working on the 2" hexes, then several other molds I have ideas for. I'll probably try some 1" and 1.5" square rock molds (1/4" thick) as floor tiles to see how they go.

I can see a lot of directions and possibilities opening up from trying these rock hex ideas (not hex related though).

Thanks,
Bruce Hirst
