Fluff Description

Hextech - Aeroplex is all in one solution for atmospheric and space transportation systems.  Featuring a combination of surface and underground facilities with access to a reinforced runway system.  Serving both civilian and military assets as required!

The underground facilities include elevator lifts that raise readied aircraft to the surface to launch in a more traditional sense.  For a more military focused scramble, most Aeroplex have quick response Launch Catapults directly from the underground hangers into the skies. This ensures defending air assets are not caught coasting down runways during attack. 

Surface facilities include large hangers to house civilian shuttles.  Order is maintained from a large admin control center that dominates the airfields.  


Product Details

The Aeroplex has the HEXTECH UNIVERSAL basing system, which gives you the ability to switch between hexed and hexless play in seconds.  The Universal bases have an optional magnetic system that can be used to enhance the feature.

The runway has a simple slot system that helps hold these long running pieces together on your table. 

 HEXTECH is a hexed, modular 6mm scaled wargaming terrain product line that is designed to accommodate games such as Battletech.  To find out more details on the many features and advantages HEXTECH offers, please click HERE for a complete breakdown of why its such a popular system. 


Magnet size: 1/8" x 1/16" or 3x2mm will give you a good fit. Some simple trimming on the sockets may be required to get a good fit, use a sharp knife and be careful.

Polarity Tip: If you socket one polarity to all the "Male" ports and then the opposite polarity to all the female
ports/sockets, you will avoid problems with pieces having conflicting polarity. This will require a bit
of organization in advance, and we recommend you save the magnet installation until you've printed the entire
kit and do the installation all at once so you don't have to keep track of it over a long period of time.

Magnets not included. 

We print our terrain on a variety of well tuned FDM 3D printers.  For general information on 3D printed terrain you may find our FAQ helpful.
