How do?

Today, I really am being thick as two short planks. And I’m not even hungover.

What I’m trying to figure out is how many Zone Mortalis tile packs (sold as packs of 4 1x1 tiles) I’d need to do a 5x3 board.

For a 4x4, I’d need 4 sets. And that would give me 16 tiles. And I’m pretty sure I’d need 15 for a 5x3 tile....but my brain just will not visualise it. Which suggests I’ve either rapidly dropped in smart over night, or I’m wrong.

Little help?

Fed up of Scalpers? But still want your Exclusives?Why not join us?

Yep, if they're 1x1 squares, 15 for a 5x3 grid, meaning you'd need 4 packs (16 tiles).

Mate. Get yourself two boxes of these from Lidl

Spoiler:


I think that'll get you 18 in total. Eat three. Setup the rest in a 3*5 grid. Visualization achieved + the added bonus of deliciousness.

Not happy with this thread being hijacked by the Lidl-shopping red biscuit WAAC brigade. This is what happens when GW don't employ good rules writers! Most people actually eat Malted Milks!

GW proving again they hate their customers by not giving the Realm of Battle board tiles a delicious chocolate coating, allowing me to win games by simply devouring the playing field.

Exactly. The lack of chocolate covering proves that GW is an unethical business that hates its player base.

Typical Dakka, jumps in with the most undercosted biscuits around. How can chocolate hobnobs compete when they cost vastly more?
