It looks all right to me: Using my modular fortress on Hexon II hexes

My modular fortress was designed to work with a grid made up of 50mm x 50mm squares, but as I also own quite a lot of Hexon II hexed terrain I wondered if it might work on that as well. I therefore set up some of my Hexon II hexes with modules from my modular fortress on them to see how they looked. The results can be seen below.

I don’t think that the modules look too out of place on my Hexon II hexes, mainly because the hexes measure 100m from face to face (i.e. twice the size of a module).

One thing that is apparent is that I need to think about making some corner modules that aren’t towers … or at least that aren’t tall towers. I am not sure when I will be able to get around to making these corner modules, but hopefully I will manage to do so at some point early in 2016.

  1. It has promise. Even if some pieces over lap hexes or there are 2 in 1 area the 1 unit per hex should be easily verified by glancing at the hexes rather then the walls. From here it looks like a 5 piece/4 hex wall with corner towers might place each tower clearly in a hex with the wall being 3 pieces/2 hexes wide. But that is pure speculation based on the photos.

    Certainly a versatile fortification.

    I suspect that a bit more experimentation is going to be needed … and that I might need to build some specific corner pieces that are not towers to help it work better with hexes.

    All the best,

    Careful Bob. I foresee something Vaubanesque being developed to fit those hexagons…

  4. Whiskers,

    Funny that you should make that comment but it is something that I have been thinking about!

    All the best,

    Looking good, Bob! All it needs now is an oversized Italian flag and a few Bren carriers nosing optimistically around the gate.

    Regards, Chris.

  6. Chris Kemp,

    Cheers! Thanks for the idea; I may well have to make a suitably large flagpole for my modular fortress.

    All the best,
