Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a way for me to make a hex map that I can post on the boards for a game I am running.

It's very easy to make a hex map in MS Paint: there is a hex shape you can copy and paste ad infinitum.

You may want to take a look at HexMapper (http://www.mentalwasteland.net/HexMapper/).

Its biggest selling point (as a figure of speech; it's free) is that you can make a campaign-scale map, then zoom in down to tactical scale. You could essentially make an entire continent in tactical scale, if you had enough time and 10-20 Gb of storage.

It can't handle anything fancy, but you can import your own textures; by default it just fills hexes with colors. Also it's apparently universal, and it ridiculously simple to figure out how to use, compared with some other mapping applications.

Wow. Thanks everyone. These are both awesome.

And thanks for the MS paint, nedz.
