An Updated Map Part 1

Hi!

I've been putting a little more thought into my updated map and have realised that making a modular one is a good idea as it will allow me to re-jig it to suit whatever setting I am working on, rather than just Leviathan.

At present I am looking at several options:

Games Workshops Mighty Empires

Heroscape

Hexon By Kallistra

Each has its own strengths and weaknesses but I have to admit that I am quite liking the Hexon range for its sheer choice, ranging from hills to escarpments and mountains. I think I could put a basic map of Aeroth together quite quickly using them, or even a specific segment to cover whatever campaign I may be fighting, be it the Axebite mountains for dwarves attempting to hold off besieging orcs, northern barbarians invading the elven lands or the Children of the Worm operating from the great southern deserts.

I think I may have to make a small order to see what the stuff is like and then see where I can go from there!

  1. Hexon stuff doesn't come cheap though, and it is rather big!

  2. True bUt if I only get a few bits at a time, I can start with a single region (probably the axebite mountains!) and paint up a specific campaign area I should save some pennies and the larger scale looks rather nice too!

    For example I will only need a couple of the basic bases and one or two mountains to get me going!

    All the best!

  3. Hi!

    Another possibility is Warbases as they do a range of MDF hex bases which are between 40 and 50mm across but last time I ordered from them the bases were poorly sized.

    I may order a pack to see as they are only £1 for 8-10!

    All the best!
