Hextech - The Highway Overpass system is an elevated super highway with 3 lanes going each direction. These are most commonly used by commercial and military traffic, capable of supporting the largest logistical transports and even the heaviest tanks and mechs with ease.
The most famous of these systems is the one that feeds into the Trinity City curtain defensive wall system and is reserved for commercial vehicles and the cities elite. The middle class and below has to access the city through the congested road entrance at the bottom of the gate, further echoing their status in the huge citystate.
HEXTECH terrain is built on 33mm Hex Bases which is completely compatible with the Battletech Tabletop game.
A real feat of hex based engineering this impressive overpass system is fully game compliant with every single position on both the roadways and the large highway braces being a legal and safe position to place a unit with no fear of it falling. Even more stunning is the design of the ramp, with its supporting arches designed to create a flat surface for any unit to stand on securely, no need to worry about your mechs sliding down the entire length of the ramp and taking a nasty spill!
Usage and Assembly Notes - Important! The ramp arches are resin printed for reliability and will most often ship already attached as assembly of those pieces can be tricky. In general this piece will require more attention to be used effectively then other Hextech releases as it is sometimes tricky to line up the roads and their supporting braces to that of the hex map. We strongly recommend you give some thought to a storage solution that will allow you to glue sections of this set together to assist in this process (Ex: Line up and glue down a stretch of the road section to its correct position on 2 of the braces, and then build your board using the braces to lay out the template, then socket in the extra straights to create a flowing road section). Additionally the ramp is made up of 3 parts and can be tricky to assemble the first few times you built the set, we recommend you glue down the top ramp section that sits on one of the supporting braces as this will help line up the ramp in the future.

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.
Currently we are offering the core bundle, which consists of enough parts to create a nice stretch of Highway Overpass and a single ramp. Future expansion options will be added once we receive some initial feedback on the core set.
Core Bundle: Contains (3) Straight Highway Sections (6 Hexes in Length Per Section), (4) Overpass Braces, (1) Off Ramp Section with Supporting Arches (7 Hexes in Length with a 4 Lane Road System Connector at the Bottom).
Total Hex Footprint: 25 Hexes long, roadway is 3 hexes wide with the Overpass Braces extending out an extra hex on each side. 83 Hexes of table coverage.
**Please Note: We stock a large quantity of pre-printed terrain at all times, however due to overwhelming demand during new releases, sales and general attrition throughout the month, it is possible we will need to print some pieces to fill your order.
