Hi, CCA'ers. I'm considering fashioning some CCA-style stickered blocks for BattleLore and, for various reasons, I'd kinda like my homemade block reservoir to match up with the comparable CCA blocks (in length, width, depth, and hopefully stain colour).

So, what exactly are the dimensions of the wood blocks included in CCA, if you don't mind? I understand there are several different 'types' (foot units, Mounted, Elephants, Leaders).

Thanks much.

PS. Are the hexes in C&CA the same dimensions as those in BattleLore?

Well, I've found the info I was looking for (exact block dimensions are in the online-published rulebook).

In case anyone else finds this thread in the future and wants the answers, the blocks are all 8mm deep, and have face dimensions of 16x16, 21x21, 26x26, and 21x26.

Now I've got a project on my hands - wood-block BattleLore.

And, for the sake of completeness, what is the size of the stickers that go on these blocks?

PS. If anyone needs to make block variants for different games, note that spare sets of blocks can be purchased from GMT (at quite a reasonable price, IMO).
