Hexagonal bases

Post by Phil_Gray_260 »

Spotted in the Works: laser cut hex bases - a bag of 110 for 2 quid. 40 small, 35 medium and 35 large.

Small fit my Ambush! map hexes (1/2 inch?), medium fit my Cry Havoc! map hexes (1 inch?) Large look to be about an inch and a half.

They look to be ply not mdf.

I know they're not pennies but they are hexagonal, ...

Didn't see those but my local Works had some oval plaques which looked as if they'd suit individual 28mm cavalry bikes etc.

Weirdly they are described as 'wooden discs'? But are definitely hexes...

I didn't see oval shapes in my local Works... maybe it's a random distribution thing?

I bought some a few weeeks back and used them for objective markers

I also ordered the circles online and collected at my local store as none of them seemed to stock them
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

That's quite cheap. A few different people do hexagonal bases, but none that cheap:

Warbases £1.20 for 20x 25mm (6p ea)
Sarissa Precision £2 for 32x 25mm (6.25p ea)
Sally 4th £1.20 for 30x 15mm (4p ea) or £1.20 for 20x 25mm (6p ea)
Supreme Littleness £1.20 for 20x 25mm (6p ea)
