Battalion Attack: Fire and Movement - Board Part I

The "Battalion Attack: Fire and Movement" basic terrain board, an eight by six hex system (see below). These hexagons are of 50mm side dimensions. The intention is now to paint them a base green colour and fix them to a cardboard sheet (with a brown base colour) with the gaps between each hex coming through as a brown edge.    

An alternative scheme could be individual basing, which may be applicable for other scenarios (see below). In the first instance I am going for a "fixed" board set-up to minimise the administration required in setting up a game.

Roughly hewn, this is my "Ode to Pringle" a contemporary modern art piece (see below): 

The fun and games should start when I start painting and flocking.

Hi Geordie,

Very neat and tidy old chap - what did you use to make the hexes?

All the best,

The hexes are old fashioned cardboard (aka white supermarket boxes) cut out with a pair of kitchen scissors the old fashioned way

50mm base sides

The template came from a CAD program but was a pdf (I'll see if I can host it off the blog as a diagram)
