Re: fields

These fields look really great. I've been checking out various carpet tiles for use as cultivated fields, which I can then cut to hex shape and stick on hex boards. However, your fields are thinnner in depth and far more effective than the results I've achieved so far!

Re: Mars kallistra

A couple of years back I made some experimental 'Mars' type Hexon boards for a scifi project. They are stored in the unit somewhere! I will seek them out and post some photos.
