  • 4 inch cubes vs 3 inch cubes

    Hi people,

    Can anyone see a reason from a rules perspective why moving from 3 inch cubes to 4 inch cubes would cause problems? The cardstock scenery I am making is 4 inch sections, and while I could print it at 75%, I'm probably going to be using that other companies minis for a while so they are a bit bigger already, and it will just work for more systems if i don't have to shrink it.

    Also, is the standard board size still 8 by 8 cubes in Outbreak? Think I may have read somewhere that it got bigger?

    I see no problem with a full conversion to 4 inch cubes. Since the unit to measure distance is cubes, it should scale without any problem. And it's still 8x8.

      I'd imagine you could make it bigger than 8x8 without a problem if you desire. Plenty of weapons reach out further than they need to and currently you only need a maximum range of 7 to reach the opposite end of the map. It would be very interesting to see how it changes play.

        Has anyone tried this? Since you could have 8 models inside one cube, I don't think a 3" cube is big enough anyway. On top of that weapon teams are now on 60mm bases, so you're never going to get close to capacity... and a 40mm base is never going to fit in with a weapon team, even though you could have 4 of them in there!

        I'm contemplating making some DZ terrain since it seems so popular (the FB group is really active anyway), and 4" seems like a better idea, especially with my lanky hands!
