Ive accualy tried that . I requires you to take all
the men off of the epic bases and basing them on
little cardboard bases . It works really well , just
change from inches to cm ; it seems to work for me . I
got the idea after seeing some people at gamesday
outside playing on top of their 40k box with a grass
mat , craters , buildings and hills . It looks and
plays really good .
