Ok I was really hoping to cut 3 at a time, and in the process of trying this.. I got 2 bad hexes (too small), and one “good” one.
Once I cut the other 3 one at a time, I must say I’m pretty impressed considering I was cutting by eye-balling it with my posterboard template just laying on top of each one.
The one that reads “good” was the the first cut where I tried 3 at a time with disastrous results.
All this is for naught until I paint/draw the hexes on and see how they line up! Although I’m pretty sure that if I get my template lined up it’ll all be awesome!
Once I get the base modules up and going I’ll be building “UP” on them for level 2 and 3 terrain…. and cutting into them for some water hexes too.
Just a note–I am NOT aiming for realism, I’m aiming for nicely painted raised hexes. If I were to do realistic terrain, I’d be shooting for the hexless rules that was released. I personally prefer the hexes as there’s no disputing line of sight, etc.
More to come. I’m hoping to have a painted base board module or two completed by next weekend.
