Still waiting for mine, but I have just finished a massive 49” by 48” magnetic wall map board specifically for this game (well, other games too, while I am idling).

Now starting to tinker on magnetic counter stack holders, and knowing the size of each hex would be helpful on how big a magnet I can use without adjacent magnets getting too close to one another (and thus sticking together, rather than staying put on the wall).

Also, for counter stack holders, I would like to get an idea of how big the unit counters are as well. This way holders can accomodate every kind of counter combination.

From straight hex edge to the opposite straight hex side the distance is 15/16 of an inch (or marginlly less than 2.5cm. I hope that helps. The hexes do not show the middle of the straight edges, just the angles.

The main counters are 8/10 of an inch side to side. Note though that are all manner of shapes and sizes for other counters and markers.

I hope this answers your questions.

These are my measurements of course and not 'official'.

Quick but kind regrds,

Much obliged. Hex-wise, I think I am good now, but I do need bit more info on the map counters.

I assume, HQs are the biggest? How big is the biggest? I want to make a universal counter holder which can be used in any situation, so I really need to know the maximum size of the counters that may end up on the map at any point.

Now that I think of it, thickness of the counters would be critical to know as well, so that I can get an idea of how big the lip of each holder needs to be.

Note the game comes with two sets of HQ counters -- if the big circular ones are too large, you can always use the smaller square counters.

Per the rules the large units are .75", the medium .65" and the small .55".

I think they ended up being printed slightly larger than that. Somebody with a ruler can measure them.

Whoever may be gracious enough to do this, please give me an indication of thickness as well (ideally, in metric).

Just found my ruler.
The large units are 20mm, the medium 17.5mm and the small 15mm. All are 2mm thick.

PERFECT! How big can the stacks get?

I know that one. 3 Ground units, plus markers (maybe, at most, 3 of those). If you include Air units added (temporarily) to a Battle hex, that could get ugly...

For air, I would slap on an additional mag holder next to it, so that's not an issue.

I may have resolved my stacking problem entirely with stacking magnetic holders, but I have to test it first before I call it a success. Either way, I might still make a few large capacity holders for "I'm gonna summon an entire Luftwaffe on top of this poor counter" situations.

Either way, that would make 3+3x2= 12mm thickness max needed. Seem that stackable holders would be a much more practical solution.

Are we talking about "standard" map sizes: roughly 22" x 34" for each of the four maps?

TITE grand map is composed of two standard maps, and two "half" maps (17" by 22").
