Title: Would SB work on a hex grid?
Post by: Rittervonbek on July 11, 2018, 10:05:11 PM
As the title asks really. I have not yet played the rules but it did cross my mind a hex grid coild extend forward the time frame?

I would suggest "probably no" because SB relies on forward/backward for a lot of mechanisms. Be good to hear other opinions etc...

Well, you'd have to change the name for a start: "Hex Bashing"? :)

One of the things I really like about the Square Bashing mechanism is that you definitely know whether or not a flank attack is taking place. That could prove more (and unnecessarily) complex on a hex mat.

And you'd also have the potential of 4 flank attacks at once on a single target hex...?

Thank you  gentlemen for your input. It would seem far less straightforward than i had assumed. On a different but related note i will try and post how i paint my Austrians....
