All hexes are chamfered to ensure the hexes are still wholly apparent. Alas I think I didn't flock up to the line well enough, but this was first effort. Hexes were pu...

My oppo and I thought long and hard before we went for Kallistra hexon, and we were not disappointed. We havent seen anything that comes close whe...

Re: New setup

Even though the depth is modest, my oppo and I really think it makes a difference. Not in the right order alas :-) I experimented with using hi quality photographs under the varnish. Might have worked better on something larger and with a smaller scale photo. I will try it again on a lake, but not f...

Re: New setup

We're improving things all the time. Just got rid of shed loads of buildings, trees and hedges to make room for a better quality lot [Raventhorpes etc]. These are some of the latest pictures that show enhanced Kallistra hex hills and some of the new woods, as well as combat shots. Hope you enjoy.
