Hi all, Peter.
I’ve made several hundred counters for the 1” hexes, so I likewise am not a fan of the larger hexes.
Warm regards, Rick.

> Yeah, the dungeon maps are pretty, but I'd tend not to use a map with fixed terrain on it, being used to the GM drawing the actual terrain that represents whatever is in the gameworld, which rationally would never be a published arrangement of tunnels, or even if it was, would only be one particular place.
