I hear of people using gaming mats with hex grids to play the C&C games with miniatures, but I was wondering if anyone played on those surfaces with blocks? I was wondering if it made the game feel "bigger" and gave a sense of more movement space, etc. Just curious.
I've played a couple of EPIC games with 4" hexes drawn onto a felt matt. The figures were 1/72 scale, and it did feel bigger, but also a bit more fiddly.
It is a fair bit of work to essentially replace perfectly good components, and the figures add up over time. So you should be sure you want to experience this before setting off. Took me about a year between start and first play.
